Ripped jeans. If you don’t own a pair, get some. Any Fashionista ought to own a good pair of ripped jeans, given their versatility and sheer comfort. With spring slowly approaching, ripped jeans can be the perfect transitional piece in any wardrobe.

Living and studying abroad, it is often hard to find stylish yet practical pieces for everyday wear. With the weather fluctuating on the regular, and traveling in and out of countries, basic but comfortable clothing is always required. Ripped jeans offer the perfect combination of practicality, comfort and style that not only fulfills this Fashionista’s needs, but satisfies her style as well.

Google search “DIY Ripped Jeans” and you will find that ripped jeans are not hard to make. If these jeans, which happen to be the ones I am coveting at the moment, or any ones that you see are a little too pricey, DIY is an awesome way to create a pair of designer-worthy jeans in your own bedroom. Goodwill and other thrift stores are also great places to find some great jeans to suit your ripped jeans craze.

In her outfit, this Fashionista chose some light-wash ripped denim jeans and paired it with a side-slit T-shirt and some vibrant red sneakers. The combination of these elements, though starkly different from one another, work quite well together.

Not feeling the full-on ripped trend? Try these subtle ripped jeans. They will not disappoint!
