Di-Stress-ing

This is such a perfect time for me to talk about distressing not just as a technique in creating apparel accessory but a way to cope with the hectic schedule the mid semester is giving to all college students out there.

Distressing generally means to cause strain which may result to physical deterioration, which is true to whether we talk about a pair of denim jeans or a physical human flesh.

But this blog will not be about my frets and rants because I had so much stress for the past weekend but how I overcome the stress by distressing my shirts. I am very fond of cutting the sleeves off my shirts, in fact I’m wearing one right now but I am not a practicing selfie so I won’t be posting any of my selfie pictures in this blog.

T-SHIRT

Ripped shirts are great and common examples of the application distressing technique. A tiny cut, strip or distress can tell a lot about your personality because whether you believe it or not, people will judge according to the clothes you wear. Once you start ripping those sleeves and ribbing off your shirts, make sure you’re ready to be labeled as rebel or slutty by people who don’t even understand what those tribes mean. Just be yourself and remember that their judgments are none of your business.

DENIM JEANS

Distressed jeans are very popular to the female race. It is a rugged and subtle approach to looking sexy without showing much legs to peering eyes of the male race.
