By Vaishali Valecha

Updated - Oct. 25, 2019 5 min read

From runway models and celebs to the streets, ripped jeans is one trend that is evident in each and everyone's closet. Frayeddistressed and torn- every similar term constitutes to this 90's style. Knee slit, thigh rip or scuffing around the pockets, the choices can be overwhelming but fret not as we have you sorted with our guide on how you can style your favourite pair of denim. 


1. Soundarya Thakur

Soundarya shows us how to style a monochrome look to perfection by playing with different shades of the same colour. Style a pair of acid washed knee ripped jeans with a darker toned denim shirt, top it off with a lovely light blue knit cropped and frayed jumper. The contrast of different tones of blues in her outfit compliment each other really well. Add the classic white sneakers, pair of basic diamond studs and a watch to accessorize and you'll be good to go.



2. Heena Vaishnav

An amalgamation of pretty florals and casual denim, Heena's outfit is ideal for daytime brunch with your girls. The key to styling this look is taking two separate shades of denim, style a lighter tone for the knee ripped jeans and an oversized comfy denim jacket over the floral tank top to give the perfect denim on denim look. A double-buckled belt and nude strappy heels along with a statement junk silver neck piece are all you need.




3. Ashmita Gautam

Ashmita's look is edgy and quirky. The fringe detail at the bottom adds a twist to the basic distressed jeans. Pair that along with an off-shoulder graphic tee and knot it up for a cropped effect. You can choose fun quotes, your favourite movies or show love for your deity just like her while selecting the print for your t-shirt. A pair of ballerinas, a clutch to carry your essentials, retro sunglasses and some dangling earrings will finish your look. 



4. Saili Satwe

Saili is slaying the distressed jeans trend. She styled the jeans with a foiled print top with a dynamic plunging neckline that adds the amount of spice to the look. The belt snatches the waist giving the torso a great definition. Stacked up dainty neck pieces for the jewellery and a pair of stilettos will amp up the look even further.



5. Paridhi

Wanna add an oomph factor to your look? Add a pair fishnet stalkings under your ripped jeans and let the fishnet peek through them rips. Paridhi's look is sexy yet comfy at the same time. She paired up a solid white cropped hoodie with rainbow stripe details with the knee ripped jeans. Finish off the look by adding a pair of white heels and cat-eye sunglasses to beat the heat in style.



6. Devika Choudhary

A day filled with fun-packed activities like a photo/food walks, shopping session with your fashion bestie or a regular college day, no matter what your plan is, this casual and comfy outfit is going to take you places in style. Devika's classic red Levi's tee paired up with torn and toned jeans gives a simple and chic vibe, perfect for a daytime moment. A basic baseball cap, sleek belt and white vans. To accessorize add a watch, a pair of silver hoops and white glass frames to complete the easy-going look.



7. Palak Joshi

Street smart is what we'd refer to while talking about Palak's look. A basic black tank top with high waisted distressed jeans are great for a girl next door vibe. Super chic and classy! The random paint splatter detailing adds a little quirk to the jeans. To jazz up the look pair a jersey style bomber jacket on top. Add a small satchel for the essentials and a pair of white sneakers to strut on the streets in style.



8. Swati Kaushik

One can never go wrong with the classic white top and blue jeans combo. But why not add some pizzazz to the look by going for a lovely embroidered crop top just like Swati. Acid washed distressed jeans helps pop the white of the top. A pair of nude or white pumps, some nude and natural makeup and a dainty bracelet will complement the look really well. 



9. Reshma Rachita Mishra

Who says the ripped jeans trend can't go well with traditional pieces? Take some inspiration from Reshma's elegant indo-western attire. An achkan style collared long jacket with the basic combination of a black top and a pair of blue ripped denim. You can add a pair of gold jhumkas and stack some dainty bracelets for jewellery. Orange strappy heels go really well against the gold accents of the jacket.



10. Shweta Singh

Shweta's look is great for the movies or a casual day outing with your close ones. A solid coloured t-shirt with basic blue toned jeans is best when you're in a doubt. If a solid colour is too simple for you then go ahead and switch to graphic or slogan tees to make a statement. The visor hat adds the right amount of edge to the look. Follow along with a timeless watch, a pair of oversized retro sunglasses and casual white sneakers and you'll be set.



DIY Hour! 

Choose a basic pair of jeans and get crafty! Grab a pencil and mark the spots where you want to create the rips. Next, grab a pair of scissors and cut through the marked areas. Once you've made the basic slits, begin to shred and scrape the material to form threads and frays. If you want to add that washed out/worn out effect, go ahead and use sandpaper to rub against the fabric and voila, you're done.
