Tired of flash-in-the-pan denim washes and jeans distressed to the point of unwearability? Style Intelligence Report is pleased to present a denim trend that’s much more wearable: creased denim.
Think of your trouser pants, right after they come back from the dry cleaner. Clean, freshly pressed, with that nice crease running down the front of each leg. Creasing your jeans imparts a sense of the same formality that is embedded in your work clothes. And it’s perfect for Casual Friday at more conservative workplaces.
How do you get the look?
- Bring out your iron and ironing board. Turn on to medium heat.
- Position your jeans on the board so that the center front of one of the legs is on the fold.
- Slowly press the fold flat using the iron, moving from mid thigh down to the hem.
- Repeat steps 2-3 with the other leg.
Easy, simple, and oh-so-chic.
