Draughty Denim

By Lori on Jul 02 2014

The irony of ripped denim is that it takes work to make something look so careless. The laid back and careless factor of ripped jeans is what makes them fashionable. For Summer 2014, shredded jeans continue to become a versatile style whether you're going for casual or sophisticated.

For a casual approach, try the boyfriend fit jeans. They are best worn rolled up and with a slight heel in order to not cut your height in half. Jessica Alba wears hers with a pair of ACNE heeled boots, comfy and stylish.

The favourite skinny ripped jean can be worn with heels to dress down a more formal ensemble. Take notes from Olivia Palermo and Poppy Delevigne. The skinny can also be worn with flats but we'd opt for a pump or boot over a sneaker.

Alternatively, go for that rock-chic vibe like Elle Macpherson and go for excessively shredded jeans, paired with boots and a graphic T-shirt.

However you wear your distressed denim, make sure you still look pulled together and not like you've just fallen over and ripped your pants. Lipstick or sleek shoes are a good start!
