Swedish clothing company Cheap Monday recently showcased its low-priced Spring/Summer collection. The collection is riddled with clothing items that are distressed, torn and/or acid washed.

Cheap Monday sticks to their classic denim styles and pairs them with loose fitting tees. This collection is a perfect match for any hipster or fashionista’s wardrobe.

Implications - Though some may see this style as a ridiculous innovation, homeless chic is something that is swiftly gaining speed. This unkempt, disheveled style is the antidote to decades of primped, over-processed looks that are difficult to maintain and tacky to wear. This should prompt companies to look into less artificial imagery in their products and campaigns. Stats for Homeless Couture Trending: Older & Warm
