Lately I have seen a lot of women complaining about ripped jeans. Love them or hate them, they are not a new thing, and it seems they are here to stay.
I am forty seven years old and I remember back in the early 1990’s all the teen girls, myself included, were fraying, and ripping their jeans intentionally, to our parents dismay I am sure. It was quite a talent if you were able to get the knack of fraying, and ripping jeans “just so” and many girls would have that one friend who knew exactly how to do it. Of course she was kept quite busy ripping, and fraying jeans for everyone in her circle of friends.
So I am not so sure why this “new” fad is such a surprise to anyone. Like I said it is nothing all that new, except for that maybe we are paying for ripped jeans now instead of ripping them ourselves.
The difference of course is when they are made with rips, they stay in tact far better than trying to DIY it. I do not know how many girls ruined jeans attempting to rip them on their own.
Another complaint I have been seeing a lot of is “older” women wearing ripped jeans. Well, once again, at 47 years old, I like them, and I am not ashamed to say it. After all as far as I know, it was my generation that started it all.
Another thing I have always loved is layering, and again this is not a new thing, but lately I am into plaids, and multiple layering, including layering my ripped jeans with some cute leggings underneath.
I found by having three layers – the tank top, crop top, and jacket, I was plenty warm, even in this cold weather. That is why I love multiple layering! I can take off the jacket if I get hot inside, and toss it on to go out, without having to wear a bulky coat all of the time.
You may have noticed that I am also wearing the gorgeous Druzy stone necklace and bracelet set I received in my recent Maple Chevron subscription box! They truly do go with so many of my daily outfits. Love! Check out Maple Chevron using the link above.
