Acid Washed Jeans – 11 great pictures of 80’s jeans


Guess jeans in the 1990s were so popular and especially in acid wash! Who can forget the beautiful Claudia Schiffer in the Guess ads? Paul Marciano from Guess said that the Guess name became really much more known around the world because of Claudia. Acid wash was actually started in the mid 1980’s by an Italian company called Rifle jeans. I remember calling them “stone washed” jeans haha, I was honestly quite surprised when this trend came back too!

I absolutely adore Drew Barrymore and love that she picks up the 80s and 90s re-trends right away! JET jeans has certainly taken Acid wash and ran with it as well; many celebs have chosen the JET brand to rock this acid wash trend. Do you like this trend?


  1. In Sweden, the trend came back a while ago, and I was actually thrilled because I think jeans in acid wash look good with basically anything. You can style them with a simple top and still look cool – with normal jeans it would look boring.
