3. Pick a Style
There are countless styles of distressed denim pieces, especially when it comes to ripped jeans. The style of ripped jeans you choose can have a big impact on the overall finish of your look.
Skinny jeans with subtle slits in the knees are the perfect trendy addition to a sleek and feminine outfit. Pair slim distressed skinnies with a relaxed, off-the-shoulder blouse and block-heeled booties or gladiator sandals for a laid-back yet polished everyday look. For a more carefree finish, try high-waisted mom or boyfriend jeans. Cuff them at the ankles and throw on a fitted crop top to keep your look streamlined and put-together.
4. Wear a Dress
If you want to create a flirty and feminine finish for your look, pair your distressed denim with a dress. The right dress can effortlessly complement a wide variety of distressed denim pieces from a trucker jacket to sleeveless vest.
If you want a casual and carefree vibe, pair an oversized denim jacket with a snugly-fitting mini dress or go boho with a looser midi or maxi dress. For a more feminine finish, try a gently ripped denim vest with a short, relaxed floral sundress. As a general rule, go for patterned dresses over solid colors. Patterns help balance out distressed denim better than solids; branch out and try stripes, floral, or a geometric print.
