How to Rock it: Ripped Jeans

Hello everybody!  I have been seeing ripped jeans everywhere and sometimes, they are horribly worn.  Sometimes they look amazing but sometimes, they go very very wrong.

To wear ripped jeans, you first need to find the right pair.  A pair that fits you in all areas will be most flattering and will be the most versatile.  You can wear a pair of jeans once or twice if they are a little off but it’s best to wait until you find the perfect pair to actually buy them.

I think ripped jeans look best in light washes or black.  Black is my favorite because it works with nearly everything and is so classic.  I love to wear black skinny jeans with a rip straight across the knee with little fraying.  A lot of times, there will be large chunks of the thigh or knee area cut out but I prefer a little bit less than my entire thigh to be open.

Ripped jeans can be worn with many things like a flirty top, a band tee, or a crop top.  Almost Everything goes with black ripped jeans.  I only ask that you keep the rips under control.

Outift #1
Black ripped skinny jeans paired with a crisp white, boxy top with a bit of a shorter hem (maybe a bit of girly floral trim like this one from Topshop).  Add black or white heels and a small cross body bag.  Statement necklace optional.

Outfit #2
Black ripped skinny jeans with your favorite band tee shirt with maybe a flannel over top.  Add hightop converse or keds.

Outfit #3
Light wash boyfriend ripped jeans with either a band tee or a crop top that hits right above your belly button.  Maybe throw on a cardigan if you are a bit chilly and some hightop converse.

I hope you guys liked this post, it was just a quick one while I’m waiting for my Birchbox to arrive, I promise November’s Bircbox post will actually be posted in November this month!

Have you found the perfect pair?  Where from?  Let me know!
