The Good Kind of Acne

After I posted about Nudie jeans one of my best friends introduced me to Acne. Founded in Stockholm in 1996, one of their main goals was to develop a lifestyle brand of clothing. Well, they’ve definitely done that if you ask me! As you know, I’m a fan of raw denim and after I bought a pair of Nudies in September I’m hooked. Acne takes raw denim to a whole new level in my opinion. Free of logos and tacky stitching they are the ultimate look for denim. Screen Shot 2012-12-09 at 9.34.52 PM

The classic look of the blue jean is in full swing with our first pair. Perfect for a day out shopping or a night out at the local pub. With a sweater or a blazer it’s the perfect casual choice. I’m really loving the color of the second pair. They’re almost an indigo blue and I can’t get enough of them. I need to find a pair like this!!!

Max Raw Slim $200 Max Satin Black $200

Black denim is so under rated. It needs to become a staple in everyone’s closet and at that price, how could you not?! Both are black but one has a bit of a metallic sheen to it making it almost a charcoal grey color (depending on the light I’m sure). The satin black denim would go perfectly with a dress shirt, bow tie and a nice blazer. Boys, listen up! This is what you should wear to the Christmas party you were invited to! You’ll have girls (or guys) all over you! Trust me 😉

Raw Denim

There has been a long standing argument in my head about spending money on jeans or not. I’ve come to the conclusion that jeans are something you can’t cheap out on. Yes, we’ve all gotten that pair of $30 jeans from H&M or American Eagle.. but how long did they last? Did they stretch out? Did they discolor super fast? Probably.

I recently caved in an bought a pair of Nudie Jeans. I had been eyeing them up for a couple of weeks and then finally caved in and bought a pair. I am in love, and I will be buying only raw denim.

Above are the classic styles. The typical “blue jean” look. People under estimate the power of a good pair of jeans. Yes, they can indeed be quite a casual look but with the right addition of nice blazer or a solid dress shirt & bow tie it can instantly become a great dress/casual look.

Both of these are great additions to a denim collection. I’m currently swooning over the black ones. Super dark denim and black denim is such a great look. Denim is underestimated nowadays because it has been widely considered as a casual look when it’s probably the most versatile piece of clothing in your wardrobe.
