80s Style Denim

Denim for summer 2009 is all about either the distressed look, going shredded and torn, or colourwise, opting for a bleached, stonewash or acid wash.
I was hoping to get an acid wash denim skirt, but as I've found 2 denim skirts in the last couple of weeks, along with the 2 I have already, I decided to look for a diiferent item in denim.
So, I was pleased to pick up this bleached denim shirt/jacket, which is by Jane Norman and thrifted from the Salvation Army earlier this week for £2.99.
I love the zipper details, especially on the sleeves-this can be worn now as a layering piece and also in summer over dresses or camisole tops.
Here is a selection of 80s style denim available at Miss Selfridge and Topshop online:
Marbled denim skirt, Topshop, £28


Bleached acid wash skinny jeans, Topshop, £40

Acid wash peplum skirt, Miss Selfridge, £35




Acid wash skinny jeans, Topshop, £40

God, I remember wearing snow wash denim the first time around.. in fact I remember begging my mum to buy me snow wash jeans.. this may be the year I finally buy a pair of jeans after not owning any for years - but they won't be snow wash!

Anny said...

I like the cleancut lines - very nice!

Skye said...

I feel like this acid wash thing has been back for years now (I have some acid wash skinny jeans I bought on sale when my 2.5 year old little dude was a newborn), we certainly saw a fair bit of it here this summer.

It's the gift which keeps giving!
