What To Wear With: Light Wash Jeans (That Doesn't Involve Shredded Tees And Keds)

March 21, 2009 by Bryn

Light wash denim will be everywhere this spring, but this doesn't mean you have to dress like a bad 80s flashback in order to inhabit the trend. Lighter jeans can look surprisingly modern and polished, as long as you don't pair with your favorite Axl Rose tee.

Mix a pair of slim light wash ankle jeans ($216) with a no-frills black cardigan ($44); the dark color will help ground the lightness of the jeans. Embrace spring's bohemian resurgence with fun cork wedges ($155) and stacked accessories. Wear one dark ($288) and one light ($28) cuff together with a pair of matte gold hoop earrings ($4). Finally, grab a burnt orange hobo ($635) to add some color to your modern, yet casual, and definitely not 80s ensemble.
