Mega frayed denim with a black sheer blouse.
An all-black outfit in July? Sure, weather permitting. I, however, shot this look on a Saturday early evening when it was roughly 90º with zero breeze. (Look closely and I’m sure you can see my sweat mustache in the headshots, but it’s all good.) I just couldn’t wait for cooler weather; this pair of black frayed denim (similar here) and sheer embroidered blouse was just too good. I love the moody vibe to the look, and that mega fray is everywhere right now. I matched ’em with my black leather mules (which are from ASOS a few seasons ago; super similar versions here and here). The blouse is super sheer, so a body con tank layered underneath boosted the coverage.
While I wouldn’t recommend wearing this at high noon or on any sort of summer patio, it would make for a perfect dinner + movie date night outfit because movie theaters and restaurants are always chilly. If you’re in the KC area, swing by KC Garment District and pick up this blouse + pair of frayed denim (which also comes in a regular wash, btw)!
Shop the look:
What’s your ratio of destroyed to regular denim? I feel like I have more jeans with some sort of destroyed element (holes, fraying, a raw hem, etc.) than I do non-destroyed regular jeans. I’m also not mad about it; I love the cool ways designers are re-imagining denim and finding ways to add interesting features. It’s also become more and more acceptable to wear destructed denim in a variety of venues, which makes me feel even better about the fact more than half of my jeans are busted up.
