I think we can safely agree that over 90% of us are in love with our jeans.
We all have that one favorite pair that we love and coddle, and cling on to – even after years have gone by. Well there’s good news for all the fashion addicts out there, because ripped jeans are coming back, stronger than ever this season! And there’s more – The older your pair, the better. The rips and fades add more character to your pair, and make it exclusively yours. So dig up the back of your closets ladies, and whip out your oldest pair of denims!
In honor of the return of this denim silhouette, below we have rounded up the freshest way to show-off these babies. From chic casual- Friday looks to stylish weekend ensembles, we have it all!
One: Keeping it elegant
For those of you who wrongly associate the “ripped” trend as being trashy, here’s how to wear your pair. Try boyfriend jeans that are slightly ripped at the knees. Pair with a simple black turtleneck, a white blazer, a sleek coat and a comfy scarf. Keep your outfit classy by adding a pair of pointy heels. Voila! Ripped yet chic.
Two: Bringing out the Badass
A leather jacket thrown on top of your favourite pair of slim ripped jeans. If that doesn’t spell badass , I don’t know what does! Of course, this look isn’t something you would consider wearing to the office, but it’s the perfect look for your night out. A basic white tee below your racy leather jacket will do wonders to elevate you entire look.
Three: The Winter-to-Spring Transition
Does Gigi Hadid ever get it wrong? Sigh. Here she demonstrates how to transition your winter denim look into a spring one. White denims worn with a slightly oversized coat that just about brushes your ankles – and those beautiful ankle strap heels. Take off your coat and ‘Hello Spring’!
Four: The Peek-A-Boo Fishnet
Fishnets are probably one of those accessories you’ve debated buying, only to come to the conclusion that you could never pull them off. Allow us to prove you wrong! Our very own supermodel Kiran Malik gives us major inspiration to work these tights into our existing wardrobe. They can give so much more edge, by adding that tough, fashion-forward factor to your ensemble. Practice this interesting way to wear your rips, and keep the grunge going strong!
