It’s always a struggle trying to figure out what to wear in the morning. Usually it’s pretty tempting to just throw on a pair of sweats and call it a day. As easy as that may sound, it’s better to dress for success than wear something sloppy, right? It’s been a growing trend to experiment with a rocker-chic style. Ripped jeans, leather jackets and a bunch of metal accessories can really help pull off an edgy look. This week, I’m here to help bring out your inner rockstar and educate you all on how to pull off a ripped denim look.

This Fashionista is wearing a destroyed denim jacket over a white V-neck T-shirt, paired with zipper embellished leggings and black ankle boots. She accessorizes with mixed metal necklaces, bracelets and rings. Although this outfit is pretty minimalistic, the details and accessories really give it an edge. The extreme horizontal rips in the denim jacket make it a bit punk, while the zipper detailing on the knees of the leggings give it a moto feel. This outfit speaks for itself; it’s put together, but shows that you have a sassy, bad girl side.

Her denim jacket isn’t crazy, shredded up denim labeled as a poor excuse for clothing; rather, the rips are meticulously and purposefully placed, making them look edgy rather than messy. She pulls off this extreme jacket by keeping her shirt and pants simple. This Fashionista’s look allows the jacket to be the focal point of her outfit, with the jewelry and gold embellishments only strengthening her overall rocker-chic vibe.

For those of you who are always looking to try something new with your style, experimenting with ripped denim is a great way to go. It’s an easy way to turn your average walking to class outfit into a fun, edgy look!

One Simple Change: If the destroyed denim jacket is a bit much for you, try out an oversized denim jacket. It will be a more conservative option if you really want to keep it simplistic and ready for the spring weather.
