Known for its marbled and mottled stone washed look, acid-washed denim is the trendiest style in the late 80s. Despite the name, no acid is used. Most of the denim washes are blue, but some are black and gray for where the marbled effect is bolder on darker denim, and more subtle on faded denim.

Acid-washed skirts and shorts may look great on crop tops, but to make them look fresh, go for structured and feminine tops like a sleek button-down shirt or a blazer that will make your looks modern while maintaining that laid-back feel.
