Rosie Huntington-Whiteley can always be counted on for extremely chic outfit ideas, pandemic or not. She makes even the most simple of basics look elegant, which is exactly what she just did while out in London over the weekend. The first thing you look at when you see her outfit is her stunning Bottega Veneta leather trench and Celine bag, but if you look a little harder, you’ll see a black T-shirt and the subject of this story: gray-wash jeans.
It seems like every year I’m hoping that gray-wash (AKA faded black) jeans will take off, and while they’re certainly always around, they never reach the popularity level of blue or black jeans. But the always in-the-know RHW’s endorsement of the style may be an indicator that gray jeans are set to be a major fall denim trend, and my research has shown that there are a lot of gray wash jeans arriving from some of the biggest denim brands on the market (for the record, Huntington-Whiteley’s jeans are from Totême).
Keep scrolling to see how she styled the trend and to shop some of my favorite gray-wash jeans.
