Distressed to Impress
When I was a teenager, flare jeans were all the rage. I remember sitting in my grandmother's house and my aunt declaring that she wore them when she was a teenager and refused to wear that style again. Fashion is an endless cycle where new trends are reminiscent of trends in the past. The 90's are making a huge comeback and some styles I am happy to repeat, whereas others I am happy to leave in the past!
The latest trend to resurface is ripped clothing. The newest aspect to this distressed look are the rips to the tops. I think the ripped effect spices up a basic tee and elevates the look. The collar is still in tact which gives the top a choker type of look and the slit in the front is just deep enough to be sexy and playful. The temperature in NY has been up and down lately, so I paired the top with some ripped jeans and a moto jacket to stay warm and to keep the look edgy.
