Style File: Ripped Denim
It's on trend. But should you wear it? And if you do, how?
Balmain Runway looks
It has been on the runways for a few years now but it seems it is now on the streets everywhere you look—the ripped and shredded denim trend. Yes, it is here. Should you participate? I have a few thoughts.
If you are going to join the bandwagon on this trend there are a few things you want to consider. Make sure the rest of your outfit is somewhat modest and covered up or you will simply look like the homeless or lady of the night.
It is rather chic with a great pair of heels, a very buttoned up shirt and perfectly tailored sports coat. It’s the juxtaposition that makes it work. It’s the lack of skin showing everywhere else and cleanliness of the rest of your outfit that makes your rips not simply a mess.
It’s a fun trend. It’s having a moment. Give it a try. It won’t please everyone. But who wants to do that anyway.
