STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Let It Rip

Writers write exposés. Fashionistos and Fashionistas wear exposés. It’s all one in the same, right? Ripped clothing articles have since reared their pretty little heads into the fashion realm and have completely taken over. The more creative people create the look themselves by engaging in DIY projects. Others buy clothes that already have the rips in them. I do not believe this trend is leaving anytime soon. Alexander McQueen showcased a pair of black, ripped denim pants in his spring/summer 2015 runway show. The pants were paired together with a grungy denim jacket to complete the look.

To the more conservative individuals, ripped clothing may appear as a dirty trend. “Who wants to wear clothes that are ripped up, anyway?” In reality, it gives Fashionistos and Fashionistas a more artistic flair. It also makes them more approachable because wearing anything ripped portrays a more laid back personality.

This Fashionisto is wearing a navy blue T-shirt over his ripped jeans and threw on a lightweight black jacket and a pair of black shoes. If you notice, he also has a pair of joggers under his jeans, which is perfect for the periodic wind chills that come and go throughout the day.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Regardless of the grunge look I’ve got going on here, I like simplicity. I don’t overdo my outfits with numerous accessories. See, right now I only have a gold chain necklace and a few arm bracelets. Now the frayed edges hanging from my kneecaps don’t seem so grungy.”
