Of all the crazy things that girls do in the name of fashion, distressing jeans might top the list. Who doesn’t love wearing ripped clothes, and especially ripped denims. Denim is love but ripped jeans connect to the soul.
Wearing ripped jeans is a fine art, really. Done right, they look fashion forward and cool—but one wrong tear and you’re on your way to looking homeless. It’s clear, ripped jeans aren’t a new trend—not even close. The distressed style has fallen in and out of fashion favor since the 1980s, but it seems that lately they’re more popular than ever.
Check out how these style divas have taken this trend to the next level.
1. Kashvi Chauhan A.K.A The Glamorous Chic
Kashvi paired narrow fit ‘Big Hole Jeans’ from Aeropostale with a multi-coloured sequence top from Vero Moda. Although she has went for maroon flatform loafers, you can also pair them with heels and be party ready. The pop of a baby pink backpack and shades make the whole look just perfect for a day out.

5. Diya Mukherji A.K.A TheRunwayMadame
Trust the Runway Madame to be classy and basic at the same time. A white tank top with high – waisted ripped jeans is the safest bet. But only a blogger as amazing as her can think of adding a net cape to it and black stilettos to complete the ensemble.
