Bella Hadid & Olivia Culpo Are Proof That Light Wash Denim Can Be Chic

When it comes to sporting light wash denim, the camp is truly divided. Although a few fashion-conscious souls believe that faded jeans can be très chic, there are many others who find light denim to be better suited to 1980s costume parties. However, with this rock and roll decade returning to centre stage, acid wash and light blue jeans are officially cool again. If you need any celebrity role models, try taking a closer look at stylesetters Bella Hadid and Olivia Culpo.

Model Bella Hadid looks effortlessly stylish in her fitted, low-waisted jeans, which feature whisker detail and a slightly faded wash. The 20-year-old bombshell pairs her cropped denim with a long-sleeved, ruched crop top that emphasizes her toned abs. For a finishing touch, Hadid’s cat eye sunglasses bring a truly retro touch to her ‘80s inspired look.

If you want to rock denim-on-denim, 25-year-old model Olivia Culpo somehow manages to look graceful even in a Canadian tuxedo! Her high-waisted, vintage style jeans are paired with a white tank and a baggy denim jacket. Culpo’s classic aviators, knotted neckerchief and white loafers help to lend charm to her casual look of the day.
