Summer Trend: Ripped Jeans

by Fajr Muhammad

Ripped Jeans Trend
Jeans are made to be worn and worn-in. While distressed denim and torn jeans is not a new trend, stars and stylish ladies everywhere are dressing up their torn jeans. Paired with heels and crop tops, low slung, baggy jeans with holes and rips are both chic, casual and carefree.

Check out some style inspiration on how to wear torn denim this season!

    Yes, I could only wear this style with a nice pair of heels.

    Never! I’m now planning to invest non-trendy, high quality jeans that I know will last me a couple of years. Any recommendations for brands (I know about Lucky and True Religion Jeans) or stores to check out? Thanks!

    Personally, I never saw rip jeans as a trend but one of my go to favorites looks on my lazy/easy days. As mention how you pair it make or break the look. But I do think it is ridiculous that some pay an insane amount for rip jeans when you can go to the good will and buy a cheap pair of jeans and rip/distress them yourself.

    Please!!! Sistahs been ripping and distressing jeans since before Daisy Dukes. Do you have any i-DEA how much you distress MINDS??? I am walking along with absolutely NO thought of sensuality WHATSOEVER,…minding my OWN business, thinking wonderful, pure thoughts about the beautiful day, then along comes “SISTAH”, distressing a pair of jeans with a vengeance. Like she really has a personal vendetta or something. My eyes get entangled by a rip. Any attempt I make to avert my eyes is futile, any effort not to follow where that rip leads to…useless!!! She walks toward me ripped and I can barely breathe. Time stops…my breathing becomes shallow and beads of sweat trickle down my face. I bang my head on a stop sign and have to check for blood…that’s right, I said blood, because as she has captured my entire consciousness for the time being, I follow her passing to the rear. My God!!! the rip there is making me thankful for Jesus because I am and born again sinner, sinning his face off only to be brought back to reality by the stop sign I didn’t see. She is walking away and I experience an optical illusion of time and space bending and warping around her or is it concussion setting in!!! How cruel can a woman be???? Let me count the ways!!!
