Faded Jeans: Love It or Hate It?

Celebs are not only embracing the wide leg jeans trend, they are also encouraging faded jeans. Even some of our stylish readers are sporting this look. Here, Life & Style shows Rachel Bilson, Kristin Cavallari and Jennifer Lopez in their white wash pairs. What do you think about this trend? I personally think it has to do with the silhouette and cut of the denim. I prefer my light jeans like Jennifer's: long, high waisted and wide or as cut off jean shorts.

have always liked faded jeans - as long as they're not the ones with ugly bleached areas on the but and thighs...

zeldaf, I'm impressed your Sevens lasted long enough to get faded. Mine developed holes in the knees and inner thighs long before they lost their color. Holes in the knees are cute... holes that show your underwear, not so much!

I remember last year when faded jeans were in due to summer. They were all lowrise and flare at the leg similar to bell bottoms but less extravagant in most cases. I've grown into the darker jeans and they seem to flatter more body shapes. I know that being short and small wearing lighter colors on my bottom half make me seem even shorter and stubbier than I really am.

I have a couple pairs I wear occasionally but I look slimmer in uniform darkwash jeans, so I prefer them.

whats to hate? They're perfectly fine, the length just has to be right.

and I forgot to add...that i cant part with a good pair of ripped ones either. I hve a pair of lucky jeans that came with a few tiny holes-now they look like they went through 1986 but i love them!

I think dark is slimming and dressier, but certain colors just dont look right with dark. Like light pink..I have this baby pink top from banana republic and it only looks good with faded jeans. And I dont think I look as good in lighter jeans...especially since most of them emphasize certain spots with fading effects on the upper thighs which may make thighs appear bigger...But at least that awful trend of bleach spotting is gone....yall know what im talking about--those jeans with the whiskers on the hips! HORRIBLE!

i like the way faded, distressed and torn light wash jeans look, but i doubt i could pull them off well with my current body type. dark wash for me, for now!

I prefer my jeans dark, but I like these. and, esp. if they're ripped, i think they're great for a real casual look.

Wicked said exactly what I was going to say. They feel more laid back.

I like the way Kristin Cavallari wore hers, the rise could be a bit higher, but she just looks very casual. I like how she paired it with the black jacket and white tank. Rachel Bilson's not making the faded jean look good, and I think J Lo's looking a little too glam for the jeans, she should have gone darker. Overall I like darker denim better, but I think the faded look can be very cute in the summer it just has too be done in a casual way, because they really can't be dressed up.

not as flattering as dark, but they're fun now and then.
