Trend Alert: Faded Jeans

Hear me out. Faded jeans may be reminiscent of the early '90s — a time when supermodels ruled the world — and is that such a bad thing? You may feel compelled to wear a pair with an off shoulder black v-neck sweater and Keds, and as a result look like early Cindy Crawford. Again, not so tragic in my book. But if you dig 'em and want to look modern, take a clue from Alexander Wang (pictured) who twinned the light denim with fun heels and silky textures. But hey, if you want to channel the supermodel heyday, be my guest.

My gut reaction? Aaaaaabsolutely not. But then again, I said the same thing about leggings and skinny jeans...and I now own both and wear them happily. So for now I'll reserve judgment.

Yay! It looks like I'm the only one, but I'm so happy to see these back again. Like another commenter, I LOVE my boyfriend's faded, washed, sooooffft jeans. Also, I think they add a bit of that badass 90s grunge attitude to an outfit in the same way that skinny jeans add some punk edginess... they won't look like mom jeans unless you wear them with ill-fitting tops and white sneakers.

Oh yes! I love them! Except faded blue denim. That should be banned.

Not my fave trend; It can easily make skinny legs look like tree trunks.

Light colored denim is ugly and unflattering. No way am I ever going back!

I don't really want to do this again. My dark jeans are so much more flattering. I can't go back! :)

I don't think light jeans are all that flattering on the body so I chose not to wear them. Like everybody else said, I will wear white jeans, but not faded.
