Ah, the ’70s—an endless font of wardrobe inspiration that we always seem to find ourselves tapping into. Lately, we’ve been focused on the DIY-ness of that time. Think destructed, reconstructed, pieced-together denim that’s unique and personal yet ready to wear with anything in your closet.
A denim skirt, for instance, gets an extra dose of personality thanks to a raw hem, pieced body and faded whiskering. These distressed details make a statement, but our favorite fabric makes it neutral enough for tons of top-and-shoe combos. Plus, that flattering midi length works during any time of year.
And of course, we had to have a little fun with an all-time wardrobe essential: the jean jacket. Cut and resewn under the front pocket and accented with cooler-than-cool, rough-edged cuffs, this superspecial iteration will have everyone asking, “Can you make me one too?” (Don’t worry, your secret’s safe with us.)
