When I first went to college, I asked for a pair of ripped jeans for my birthday. The exact pair I had in mind were loose-fit, flared, and a light wash from Hollister. My dad agreed to purchase the jeans for me but balked at the rips and the price. “I’ve never paid this much for jeans in my life. And these are ripped up all over the place!” I’ll never forget those jeans. They looked great on my tan, slender (college age) legs and I felt so cool wearing them.
My tastes have changed quite a bit since then, but I still have a small place in my heart for a good pair of ripped denim. I’ve noticed ripped skinny jeans all over the blogging world and I think it’s time for me to take the plunge (much to B’s dismay-he’s not a fan of ripped jeans or denim with holes.) Today’s ripped jeans are more form fitting and have either the smallest slits or carefully placed rips, making them look more polished and deliberate than my old Hollister jeans. Paired with a striped tee, leather moto jacket, and d’orsay heels and you’ve got yourself quite the alluring get up, right there.
