The distressed look on t-shirts, denim, shoes and sweaters has been around for a little while now, and I have never really been into it because it's cold in Canada! We need sweaters and pants with no holes in them to prevent frostbite! But I decided to try it anyways, cause you know, "C'est la vie," or whatever.
From the pictures above we have established where this trend in distressed sweaters came from. I have to admit this look totally fits my style. It's not girly and it's different and raw and super urban. I love it. I can be a girly girl in a few years but right now I am loving the distressed sweater vibes.
I would suggest wearing a jumpsuit, leggings or a shirt underneath the sweater to keep you warm. I would usually wear a jumpsuit underneath and thigh highs if I am going out when it is below freezing out.
I like wearing sweater dresses paired with thigh high boots because it evens everything out. The sweater dress leaves a lot of leg hanging around and thigh highs cover up the legs and make the outfit even MORE sexy (what?! how?!). Believe me, it just does.
I would argue that the distressed look can be worn all year round. You just have to wear something underneath it. I have tried this trend and have absolutely LOVED it! Can't wait to try more trends in the up coming year!
