2 – Pretty in Pink

For those days when you want to be kinda grungy with your ripped jeans, but also super cute too, just team your distressed denims with a loose pink sweater and some romantic curls in your hair. A pair of sunnies completes the look, and you could wear the combo with nude killer heels for a more dressed up affair. You could even add cute little Converse pumps for something more casual and day-time easy. We must admit, we do love this look with those heels.

4 – Ripped Denim + Leather

Denim and leather go together so well, we’re surprised more people aren’t doing it more often. With a white tee or vest and white Converse trainers, this would be a perfect daytime look, the leather jacket thrown on for when the weather gets a little chilly. When the evening draws in and it’s time to get dressed up, change the vest / tee for a cropped top, and switch the sneakers for heels. Bob’s your uncle, you’re done!

For the record, we found these jeans on ASOS. If you click on the image below, you’ll be taken right to them. They’re only £32!

5 – Ripped Denim + Fishnets

This is a big look for right now – fishnet tights worn underneath ripped denim jeans, but it’s not a new concept. People have been wearing funky leggings and tights under jeans for a long time, the fashion is just evolving a little. Give it a try and see what you think. You won’t ever know whether or not you can pull off the latest fashions unless you actually give it a try.

6 – Ripped Jeans + Lace-Up

We actually predicted the lace-up trend to be one of the biggest for spring 2017 fashions, and here we see two trends working together. The ripped jeans trend, and the lace-up shirt trend. Together it makes quite the sassy and sexy little combination, don’t you think?

7 – Ripped Jeans + Tee

For when the warmer weather hits, simply throw your ripped jeans on with a simple tee and a trucker cap. You have a day time look that is perfect for kicking about town in. It’s totally cool and effortless too. High waisted jeans are a super great choice because they’re flattering on all body shapes and types. Get yourself a slogan tee if you feel like being cheeky, and you’re pretty much good to go. The trucker hat even covers though greasy roots you were using as an excuse not to leave the house …

8 – Ripped Black Jeans + Tartan

We love tartan everything, and we actually think that black jeans and tartan were made for each other. That’s especially the case with punky ripped black denims and an oversized tartan jacket or shirt thrown on for good measure. You could consider wearing black ripped denims with a simple tee, a tartan shirt wrapped and tied around the waist. What do you think?

9 – Ripped Denims + Stripes

It’s a look that works perfect for spring – a black and white striped shirt, three-quarter sleeves for when it’s not quite warm enough for little capped sleeves – thrown together with black ripped denim jeans. We’d probably pair ours with a pair of Converse trainers, but we do love the way that nude heels have been throw in with this look to sass things up a little. For the record, nude heels instantly make your legs look longer. Did you know that?

10 – Ripped Mum Jeans

Have you ever noticed that jeans with rips never stay jeans with rips for long? Before you know it, you’ve shoved your foot through the little rip and made it a bigger one, eventually making it so big you can basically see your whole half-leg through it … Every pair of jeans we’ve owned has gone down the same way, and we’ve decided to embrace the rips. If they get so big you could fit your leg through it, so be it. We’re still rocking it. For the record, Kim Kardashian loves those big rips in her denims, so if it’s good enough for her, it’s good enough for us.

13 – Lazy Ripped Denims

We know that some days you just need something easy and casual to throw on and kick around in, and we like this look for that. It’s one of the ways to wear ripped jeans that doesn’t take too much time or effort. It’s a sweater, some boots, a scarf, and a big jacket. Sunglasses will help to cover those eye bags you can’t yet be bothered to conceal with makeup, and a hat will also help cover up those greasy roots too. I think we might be on to a winner with this one, don’t you?

14 – Autumn Shades + White Ripped Jeans

Would you ever have thought of putting these shades together with white ripped denim jeans? No, we hadn’t either, but we definitely kind of love it. Especially seeing as we have a khaki top in our closet that’s begging to be worn, and a pair of white denim jeans that we’ve never known what to pair with … It’s definitely a combination that works, and we even have a pair of brown boots that would go just perfect. It’s almost like this outfit was meant to be!

15 – Punk Rockin’

One of the ways to wear ripped jeans that screams attitude, how about this punk rocking look? Add a hat and some sunnies, and finish it all off with a rock-band tee, and what do you have? A look that is effortlessly modern, fresh, punky and cool, no effort, time or dedication necessary. Who’d have thought being so cool could be so easy?

Just a little handy tip for you – if you have old jeans that you no longer wear, don’t throw them away. Take a cheese greater to them to muss them up a bit, and you’ll be left with jeans like these … which we’re sure you definitely wouldn’t want to throw away!

16 – Ripped Jeans + Camo

Another easy every day look, this ripped jeans and camo jacket one is easy, breezy, and actually pretty stylish for something so thrown together. We really do love the way that this look has been worn with those blue heels. You could add high-top trainers if heels weren’t quite your thing, or even little cute ballet pumps if you didn’t want to be quite that casual.

17 – Shirt + Jeans Combo

On those days when you mean business, and you need to look like you mean business too, how about this shirt and jeans combo? There are your ripped jeans in there, but worn with a structured shirt, slightly off-key from the regular man-style shirts that you may usually team with it. Smart, sassy, and just the right amount of business meets pleasure. That’s why we loved this look, how about you?

18 – All-Black Ways to Wear Ripped Jeans

And on some days, you just need to wear all-black-everything, don’t you? This outfit is a perfect way to do just that, and one of the ways to wear ripped jeans that we loved, quite frankly. Add black boots, the punkier and edgier the better, and then throw on a plain black tee. If you have a ripped one, it’ll add even more of a punky and modern edge to the entire look. A pair of black sunglasses brings it all together perfectly.

This look combines a number of trend hits in one – those fishnet tights underneath the ripped jeans, and then the khaki sweater with the camo jacket over the top.

It’s never been so easy to keep up to date with fashion.
