Washed jeans give a lived-in feel and are softer and more comfortable than dark denim jeans because of the way they're prewashed. The trick to wearing them well comes down to highlighting their most obvious quality: their casualness. Washed jeans will look their best with all the neutral colors and with casual clothes like shirts, jumpers and t-shirts in colors like navy, white and black. Most light-wash jeans are more faded down the fronts of the legs than elsewhere, but if the colour difference is more than a shade or two it's really eye-catching. Shoes in lighter shades, like grey, white/cream trainers light-brown suede desert boots etc. would well with the jeans.
There are different techniques that result in different types of washed jeans: Some of them are as follows:
Raw Denim: Unwashed and sometimes referred to as dry denim, raw denim can be identified by its dark blue color and the stiff handle. As the name suggests, this is denim fabric in its unwashed, unfinished state received straight from the mill. Acid Wash: Made popular in the lates 80s, acid wash is also referred to as Marble/ Moon or Snow wash. With sharp contrasts in tonal color, acid wash denim is achieved by soaking pumice stones in chlorine and adding them to the wash process. Rinse Wash: The most basic wash for a denim garment, the purpose is to make the garment wearable. Residual dye is removed from the jean to help stop the color running. The wash makes the denim feel softer but it still maintains a clean appearance. Mid Wash: A popular choice for most jeans, mid-wash denim has undergone a longer washing process than rinse jean to remove more indigo dye color. This helps create the mid blue color level. The wash also ensures the jeans have a softer handle compared to the raw denim. Light Wash: A light wash jean is a light blue in color. The jean has been through a longer washing process than mid wash jeans. The result is a lighter blue shade of denim jeans Bleach Wash: This process makes the denim heavily faded. Bleach wash jeans are easily identifiable as they are light and washed out. Washing with bleach is one way to achieve this finish. It can also be applied locally through spray or hand rubbing on the desired area. This process is very complicated and requires highly skilled operators.
