The Style Post: Ripped Jeans

Now that the cold is finally starting to lift on the coast, I’ve rediscovered an old style favourite from my teenage years: ripped jeans. I’ll admit this take is slightly more subtle than my H&M jeans that looked like the’d spent the night with Edward scissor hands but I still like it. Even if I am occasionally asked if I know I have a hole in my jeans. Thanks, Mum.

I posted these on Instagram a few weeks back and had a few people ask where they where from. The jeans were from Missguided*, but the rips were all my doing. I wanted to add a little something to an all black outfit one morning and after making a few cuts (1cm wide) into the knees I got ripping. If you’re feeling a little stressed and want to make yourself feel better then I’d definitely recommend giving this a go as it did feel very therapeutic. I have been told I look like I’m rocking the homeless vibe by my dad (yes, can afford multiple trips to space NK but not a pair of jeans?) and frequently get asked if my knees are cold (strangely not) but I like them. 15 year old Suzie would be proud.

    Oh, the nostalgia 🙂 It's really been a while! I love the look on you, especially considering your usual very lady like style, this just adds a cool little detail, that creates an edge 🙂

    Thanks for sharing!

    I love it! tried to do this to my own jeans a while back and ended up accidently ripping a hole of gigantic proportions in the exact opposite direction than intended. Not happy.

    Hahah looks good. I always find the originally rips in my jeans slowly grow and get bigger! xxx

    I love ripped jeans!
    And I understand the questions you get, I get them as well from people trying to be funny. They can say whatever they want, still wearing ripped jeans! (I'm such a rebel haha)

    I did the same thing with an old pair of Primark black jeans. Gave them a second life!
    I love the look of ripped jeans. As you said, they add a little something 🙂 x

    I own one ripped jeans and it's certainly my favorite 🙂 I wonder why I don't have more ripped jeans.. Where are the scissors then?;) lol

    05 Mar 2014 / 2:51 pm

    Love abit of clothes DIY but mine tend to end in disaster! This is a cool grungy look and I live in black skinnies so will definitely give this a go for spring!

    Ripping jeans is definitely stress relieving, but I always feel bad for taking a pair of scissors to anything I've bought though…

    I've been on the hunt for some ripped skinny jeans recently but have failed to find any – all the ripped jeans tend to be a boyfriend fit or loose fitting jean. I didn't even think to just cut a pair that i already had! Thanks for the idea, i'm going to give it a try! 🙂 xo

    This really looks cool! Probably wouldn't suit me only on the knees, but I reckon ripped slightly along the leg would look quite cool. x

    I used to have really ripped jeans back when I was 14 / 15 too; the way you've done them here looks really cool, I'd love to give them a go again x
