Acid Wash: Yay or Nay?

Posted by Elissa Hall on Thu, Jun 7, 2012 at 8:59 AM

Denim. It's everywhere right? On your legs, in free boxes, folded neatly in $500.00 piles at the mall. Well, recently I have noticed a surge in denim of the acid wash variety. In one week I spotted:
a jacket,

a pair of studded jorts,

and, yes, even a backpack.

So what's the word? Is acid wash the way of denim's future? Personally, I give it two big thumbs up (as long as it remains readily available at the nearest thrift shop).

If you also like to do acid on the cheap, here's a DIY link. It's simple and only slightly toxic. So trip out.
