Chic Outfits Wearing Ripped Jeans

Deciding what to wear on a daily basis can be frustrating and time consuming. I always wonder how Olivia Palermo can make every outfit that she wears look so chic. Ripped jeans are my favorite to wear, but they are not always an appropriate choice depending on what where you are going. Normally ripped jeans are not something you would wear to an interview or in the office, but going out with friends or evening dinner dates may be more acceptable. 

There are many different ways jeans can be worn, but I want to give you examples and ideas of how to dress up your ripped jeans. 

1. Wear them with a classic pointed pump for a sophisticated look.

2. Wear them with leatherNow that fall season is right around the corner, it is time to bring out the leather jackets. Leather adds an instant rocker chic feel to any outfit. It is one of those pieces that will never get old. 

3. Wear them with a button down shirt. This is my favorite way of dressing up my ripped jeans. You look look polished, as if effort was made, and it is super comfy. Adding intricate accessories and a bold lip will complete this look.

4. Wear them with fringe. Fringe is perfect for fall, whether you are wearing a jacket or bag that has fringe details, it adds an "aww factor". By "aww factor"  I mean it captures the attention of those who walk past you. At least I am in aww when I see someone wearing fringe. A way to add instant fringe without over powering your outfit are fringe boots by Sam Edelman.

5. Wear them with cool sneakers. I love to wear my jeans with Adidas Stan Smith Sneakers.
 I always get compliments when I wear them, and they are often a conversation starter. 

6. My last tip for how to dress up ripped jeans is wearing a BlazerTo me, blazers are the icing to the cake. They have a transformative power of making dull and ordinary outfits look fabulous. Try it, I dare you! (Be aware of the cut of a blazer. Not all cuts will look right when worn with jeans or pants)

I hope my six tips will help you be effortlessly chic for whenever you wear ripped jeans!
