STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Destroyed With Plaid

Style Advice of the Week

I’ve always been a fan of distressed, destroyed, ripped denim ever since Miley Cyrus started to really wear them during her “Miley and Mandy Show” phase in 2008. Similarly, I caught this Fashionista leaving the Yogurt Studio with her froyo in hand with this girly, yet edgy, outfit.

From my experience and in my opinion, destroyed jeans are cool enough and warm enough to be worn during the fall season. They were deemed as an inappropriate form of clothing in high school and by my parental units. Finally being aware of the fashion dos and don’ts in college (and in life), destroyed jeans are definitely a do when done correctly and fashionably. Ripped jeans can be dressed up or dressed down, and this Fashionista dressed it down perfectly with an light jersey top and cozy, plaid flannel.

If you’re an avid follower on denim trends (and even if you’re not), invest in a pair of quality distressed denim like this one by AG Adriano Goldschmied or a lighter pair by Juicy Couture.

There’s something sexy and hardcore about ripped jeans, and who doesn’t want to be associated with being sexy and hardcore?
