Ripped-up jeans tend to have a certain love-worn appeal, as if you’ve owned them forever. They lend your look a casually cool vibe that’s spot-on for spring. From skinny silhouettes to baggy boyfriend shapes, the denim craze can be worn on weekends, or in the workplace if your profession lends itself to such devil-may-care wear as obligatory rips.
Today on the Fashion Hunter, we explore the entire version of Friday’s weekend wear post, concurring that denim has this magical ability to casualize nearly everything. Keep in mind that even the most intentional of rags, holes and all, are a statement of choice, rather than a prescribed dose of medicine.

The deets: Rag & Bone jeans, The Jefferson blazer is also Rag & Bone (I’m a big R & B fan) worn with a T by Alexander Wang black halter top. I love that the jacket curves in just the right places. For a pop, I added nothing but a simple Alice and Olivia lucite box clutch, Von Zipper sunglasses, and a Fallon black choker.
Jeans are jeans, but style is what you do with them. Personal style blogs are catalysts for breaking the hard-core rules of fashion today. Style is not what defines a woman, but rather, it’s the confidence to pull off almost anything you want to wear. I’ve been very particular about the jeans I choose, but that doesn’t eliminate the fact that no matter what, the crotch department never looks good. Ripped up and slouchy in just the right places, they successfully conceal the body parts that have been in hibernation for way too long.
Fans like Mary-Kate Olsen and Elle Fanning are wearing them, because they are so nonchalant and oh so cool, but everybody can get in on this.
Let’s start this conversation, what are your favorite jeans and why? Do tell.
