New Jeans Just In: The Stilt – 17 Years Riot from AG. You girls probably already saw this pair on my Instagram. I'm madly in love with cropped skinny jeans and the blue is the perfect blue color that I was looking for. The heavily distressed knees are just so cool. Because of my love for the jeans, I want them to always look so blue and fit me perfectly. They are an essential to create an effortless casual weekend look.
When I was growing up, my mom always told me that new clothes needed to be washed before you could wear them. I still remember my jeans changing after washes, where they became loose, the fit wasn't as good anymore and the blue denim lost its vivid pigment of indigo blue. I never really cared that much because jeans would come and go plus the jeans I wore when I was growing up were not expensive. Until I moved to New York many years ago, I had never owned a pair of premium denim. My first pair was a pair of J Brand jeans. I remember how expensive they were for me back then, but they made me look into how to protect my jeans after I washed them. Today let's talk about how to wash your jeans to ensure they last longer, loves!
-Wash them less frequently
It's totally fine to wash your jeans less frequently and wear them at least a few times before you wash them for the first time. I read somewhere earlier this year that Levi's CEO revealed that he hasn't washed his jeans in more than a year, haha. I'm not too sure about going down this extreme of waiting more than a year, though. You can rotate between a few different pairs of jeans to avoid not wearing the same pair too often. It's really important to not wash them so often so that they'll maintain that perfect color. If they’re really dirty, you can just wash that dirty spot. I normally wash my jeans after wearing them about 5 times.
-Wash them inside out
-Try not to machine wash them
Instead hand wash them with cold water. Also air drying is always best. You should definitely read the tag before your first wash. Every pair of jeans has different requirements. Even if machine washing them might be ok for certain jeans, the general rule is to not put them into the washing machine. When I'm really busy, I’ll actually throw them into the washer, but I select delicates and I separate the jeans from my other clothes. Then I normally just lay them down flat to air dry them.
-Freeze your jeans overnight
Some people have said that if you keep your jeans in the freezer overnight it'll kill all the bacteria. They also say that it makes your pair of jeans feel real clean, so that you can wear comfortably after freezing them. Their recommendation is to freeze your jeans about once a month. However, I have to admit that I’ve never tried this before. Have you girls ever done this?
How often do you wash your jeans? How do you wash them? :) XO
