Denim Trend: Top Five Smoky Wash Skinny Jeans From Wild To Mild

The smokey or marble wash jean (similar to an acid wash) came back into the fashion peripheral recently, but lately the trend seems to be rearing its head again, and this time it might just have staying power. These five picks are a nod to the trend, from the zaniest pick to a pair of denim subtle enough that this look might even start to grow on you.

The Siwy Denim Hannah Jeans in Fascination ($195) will strike a chord with the rocker chick deep inside you with the high-contrast black and white wash. These are club wear, indeed.

Paige Premium Heavy Metal

In distressed jet black, but less contrasty, these Paige Premium Denim “Skyline Drive” 10″ Peg-Legged Jeans in Heavy Metal Wash ($174) are not for the faint of heart, but may bring out the artistic side in you.

Tie Dye Skinny Jeans Linden

For a cheap way to test drive the trend, give these New York & Company Tie Dye Skinny Jeans ($47) a whirl. Not only are they cheap, but the white and gray wash is something outside the ordinary.

Smog Skinny Jeans

A trifle milder are these Vince Denim Smog Skinny Jeans ($255) with a muted gray on gray wash that merely hints at the trend.

Prps Dart Skinny Jeans

For the tough look without a jarring vibe, try these ultra-subtle, heavily distressed and sandblasted Dart Skinny Jeans by Prps ($338) in classic blue.
