Gotta Love the New Knee Holes for Skinny Jeans


Sometimes I feel like skinny jeans are teetering on the edge of being dated… because you know they seem to be replaced by boyfriend jeans in terms of this year’s “It” style. Then a craving comes along that makes me think… oh don’t pack away those skinny jeans quite yet.

Skinny jeans with knee holes.

Yeah, sure, destroyed jeans have been around for ages. Skinny jeans have been around for ages. What’s so new about this style? Well, it’s in the way the hole is. Not quite so “distressy” as it’s a deliberate slice in the knee. Not meant to look worn in, these knee holes have moderately frayed edges. They’re cut our, ripped by hand of course most the time they ALL are done by hand… except those pair of jeans I have which have holes from actual spills I’ve taken on the sidewalk (not drunk…I’m just clumsy) those holes are actually quite small, like silver dollar size. These holes can be slits, actual holes dramatic and baring the entire knee. Or just something subtle. All on skinny, skinny jeans.

So you can either buy them pre-distressed, like J Brand’s 8227 Mid Rise Ankle Jean… or do them yourself, if you dare!

    My fave way to wear my jeans…. although I don’t like the knee holes too big… I have seen a few with the entire front of the thigh gone….. really not my scene… If the distressing is not natural (who’s is nowadays??) at least let it look as close to as poss right? lovely post…… some real jewels there..x

    It definitely is interesting watching all the new distressed styles in skinny jeans! My bane of the style before was the inevitable blowout and holes that would end up much larger than they originally were…but I’ve reviewed/tried several lately that either have enough stretch so they don’t rip further, have better placement, or even have reinforcement (hello Red Engine!!). Either way, I feel this style isn’t going anywhere soon! It’s the perfect combo of pulled together but laid back.
