Perhaps it’s time to confess: I have a love-hate relationship with ripped denim. It all started a few years back with a stubborn me totally rebelling against the style, something about it screaming tacky to me. Of course seasons past, the trend grew stronger and after writing quite an extensive article about it, I remember thinking “Hmmm… maybe they are not all bad“.
And for that I blame the girls & women who could put on a sack and still make it look fabulous. Shortly after I ordered my first pair of distressed jeans, this exact pair in fact, I was left with mixed feelings: loving them and hating them at the same time. It sounds crazy, I know. I love the way they appear all cool and effortless, the way they make me look a little bit edgier and the way they make me feel somewhat stronger (don’t even ask me why), yet they still spell out trouble.
I won’t wear them if we’re visiting the grandparents, if I have to do a lot of walking (which means lots of opportunities for people to stare), if I want to feel put together, but I figured a pair of heels, a nice watch and a slouchy sweater do help in achieving that polished look I’m alwasy after. And for me, that is compromise. And this is how I love to wear the ripped jeans best.
Confession over. Hope you’re having a great week so far, lots of hugs! XO
