It's been a while, but I have another fashion trend that I am on the fence about and I'm ready to process it with you all.  How are we feeling about acid wash? Now I used to thoroughly hate the "I spilled bleach on my clothes look" because to me it read 80's costume and I have never been a fan of that fashion decade.  But, lately I've been having to give acid wash a second look.

Let me start by saying I am not a fan of the styling of look 3 because to me, the shorts are screaming for too much attention.  I just think the shirt is already a lot and the two together is graphic pattern overload.  Look 1 is definitely a lot to visually process, but I think with some styling modifications it being something I would try out.  Look 2 is the safe option for my style taste - not too crazy, but also not boring and subtle.

So as you can see, I'm still on the fence.  Maybe this summer is the perfect time to test out the trend.  What do you think?  Should I leave my acid wash everything in the costume bin, or is it ready for my mainstream wardrobe?

Let me know what you think!
