I'm always a sucker for a good pair of distressed denim. It's always the first pieces I'm drawn to when I look for jeans. I love the fit of these boyfriend jeans (under $30) because they slim down through the legs so they are not too oversized, and they are the perfect light wash. Seems like post baby I have been gravitating towards oversized pieces that are comfortable as a busy mom on the go.

I wanted to share a couple tips I've found for perfecting my distressed denim. The first thing I always do is over rip the slits. Especially at the knees, pull the rip all the way to the side seems. This helps give them that worn in look and makes it more comfortable for your knees so there is not stress against the threads. The second thing I've found is cuffing the bottom with a thin roll. Typically the inside of the denim is a different color so the roll will create contrast against the regular wash on the outside. If the jeans are oversized I try to create a thin sleek roll to offset the baggy style. This is key if you are wearing heels, the polished roll helps tie in the heels.
