So you've spoken out on the Hammer Pants from Cheap Monday, but what about acid washed jeans? They bring to mind big hair, hairsprayed bangs, and morally-lax girlfriends of guys in metal bands. Generally, the term "acid-washed" is spoken in a tone of scorn and derision. But all of that may change. We love how denim labels are updating the acid-washed 80s look in subtler washes and with deep colors. Our two favorite looks are from Goldsign - it's like acid-wash light! - and Cheap Monday - who probably deserve an award for managing to make magenta acid-washed jeans look wearable. The only problem: As Glamour's Ashley Baker tells us, acid-washed fabrics are horrible for the environment, because the chemicals used to treat the denim are almost always toxic. --ALISON COOL
