how to style ripped jeans_revelle

Street style is having a moment, and we are SO here for it.

The best part about ripped jeans is that you can carry the look both ways by either doubling down on the edgy, street style look or pairing things back with more structured tops that add a touch of formality. 

Below, we’re breaking down our twelve top styling tips for ripped jeans, whether you purchased them that way, decided to DIY, or have just worn (and washed) them so many times that they now have rips along the knees. 

~Weekend~ vibes on the bottom, business casual look on top. Shoes-wise, we’d cast a vote for suede loafers.

Doesn’t matter if you’re sporting ripped skinny jeans, straight leg jeans, or more baggy mom jeans — a tucked-in button down always works. Bonus points if it’s a denim jacket or top…we LOVE ourselves a Canadian Tuxedo, especially when the jeans are dark-wash and the top is light-wash.

If you’re looking for a mix of fashion and function, a trench coat is it. 

No need to tuck it in tight. Just a portion of the front will do. 

There’s just something about a pair of ripped jeans with a tank top and leather jacket that WORKS. Pair with booties, white sneakers, or vans

Looking for a way to make the whole jean shopping process WAY easier?

That’s where Revelle comes in. When you join — which, BTW, doesn’t cost you anything — we’ll ask you a few questions about your beautiful body. From there, we work our magic (and by magic, we mean technology) to build your personal store. As you like (heart) and dislike (broken heart) jeans, we’ll get to know your tastes, preferences, and style even better so you can find your perfect pair.

This is our go-to for a night out. If it’s a bit chilly out, refer to #5…leather jackets all the way. 

Bonus points if you can layer the hoodie underneath a leather jacket (noticing a trend here?). 

Plus a thick blanket-scarf for cozy boho vibes all around.

It’s the perfect laid-back nautical look, and if you close your eyes and concentrate hard enough while you’re wearing this outfit, you’ll feel like you’re at the beach. Trust us on this one. 

To avoid clashing, we recommend sticking with one animal print item in your outfit. So, for example, if you’re going with cheetah jeans, don’t ALSO wear leopard ballet flats (or belt, or headband, or t-shirt). Less is most definitely more here.

And black high boots or high tops. The result is a chic, black-on-black distressed denim ensemble that can carry you from work to brunch to the bar.  

Ohh, how we love the humble bodysuit. It transcends seasons and occasions, with plenty of options for basics or more dressy that can easily be layered when it gets cold out.
