Zendaya rocking the distressed trend

Destroyed and distressed is all the craze these days. A simple hole, rip, or even color fading can change the entire dynamic of any bottom, top or dress you may own. Distressed jeans have been hot for a while now, but distressed shirts are taking over and completely changing the game! Seen on stars like Kim Kardash, Chris Brown, and of course, the man himself, Kanye West, everyone is getting down with this trend. Believe it or not, Mr. West made this look a new high fashion craze.  In fact, he themed his entire 2016 Yeezy Season 3 fashion show around it and ever since then, it has been spreading like wildfire!

To keep you up on this new trend, or if you are looking to try something new, here are six distressed shirts we know you’re gonna love!
