You can't go anywhere without seeing ripped jeans these days. I remember the last time they were "in" I was slightly too young to embrace the trend, so I have gone head first this time around! Now, there is ripped , and there is RIPPED!!! Here I'm talking about the trend of the extreme (some may say excessive) ripped denim, the most popular being the Rag and Bone Dre Thrasher jeans. I wanted to give some different styling options for people who might not be sure if they want to embrace the trend for a variety or reasons; age, lifestyle etc. I don't really believe to heavily on there being an age restriction on fashion. I think if you feel comfortable in something you can ROCK it. That being said, for me personally, I definitely won't be picking up my kids from school in these jeans.... there is a time and place I think .
Here is my first look. I love a nice blazer with the jeans as it adds a bit of class and I think makes it a bit more appropriate for my lifestyle and more age appropriate as well. When I first bought these jeans, I had this Smythe Blazer in mind with it.
This next look is by EstherandSasha from Instagram and I love the soft colours and feminine touches. I think the first time I started to think I could pull off these jeans was when I saw them on her. she always dresses very feminine and classy , so I knew there were ways to wear the jeans in a classy , more dressed up style.
Jeans: Thrasher <here> | Cardis: Zara , Shoes: Louboutin Decolette similar <here>, Turtle neck: Marciano
Here are some other more casual options. It also hides a lot of the jeans in case you need to ease your way into wearing them !
Here I am in my Thrashers the first time I wore them out with my husband. I threw a big coat on top to ease him into the look lol.
Here, I'm wearing them with a very casual off the shoulder T for a cool rocker vibe. I feel the heels are necessary to dress up the look a bit.
I love this look my friend TheBleachedBlonde put together with her Thrasher jeans. Its classy but still playful!
PinkBlondeBrunette seen here in her thrasher jeans with the most amazing Balmain shoes!
WHITE HOT RIPS
Now, if you want to get REALLY ripped up, take a look at Sydney fashion blogger in her jeans here. I know I could NEVER wear them, they are too extreme for me personally but I think they look amazing on her. Again, it depends on ones lifestyle and personal preference.
Some flat shoe options
So, love them or hate them, ripped jeans seem like they are going to be around for a little while anyways! Have you joined the movement?
