Black is the most popular shade, but it doesn’t have to stay that way. Denim comes in so many different colours, including blue, cream, charcoal, red, grey, and black. If you want to stay with the classic shade of black, then you can always opt for black denim. It will have the same impact as having the same shade of black on any other type of shirt.

The frumpy and plain look. This is an option for people who don’t want to look too formal or want a little bit of colour in their clothes. Choose solid colours to keep things simple,e and don’t pick patterns for your shirts. Simple and plain is a good option these days.

There are more options than ever before when it comes to wearing an acid-washed denim shirt. The days of solid colours have gone, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t look great! It just means that you have to be a little more creative. Keep these colours in mind when choosing what you’ll be wearing, and you’ll look good in anything. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different colours, too; it’s perfectly acceptable these days!

A dark coloured, black dress. If you don’t want to look too formal or think that you’ll look weird wearing a black dress, don’t. Look for a lighter shade of black, but make sure it’s not too dark. You could wear a vest over the top and then get some funky shoes. This will disguise that you’re wearing a black dress but won’t make you look strange!

A solid white or cream shirt. If you’re wearing a solid colour (such as black), then this will hide any blemishes, marks or stains that you might have on your clothes. White will also work if you’re wearing a plain, patterned shirt. However, if you’re wearing an exceptional piece of clothing (such as an acid-washed denim shirt with a printed pattern), then you should consider changing it for a bit of class.

A coloured shirt. If you want to be more adventurous when it comes to hiding stains on your clothes, you can always mix and match colours. If you’ve just washed your acid-washed denim shirt in a different colour, such as red, then it won’t matter that you’re wearing it with a solid white top because the colour of your top is going to camouflage the marks on your shirt a lot better than if you’d worn a black or cream top.

Once you’ve found the perfect outfit, you must keep it well maintained. Acid washing is harsh, and the material can fade and become threadbare quickly if you don’t give it a good look over a period of time.

To avoid this, make sure you wash your denim regularly. If you’re wearing your shirts, give them a light rinse before wearing them and always try to hand wash them in a washing machine that’s a little stronger. Always make sure that you take the time to dry your tops properly before wearing so that you can prevent any fading from occurring.
