It’s safe to say that streetwear isn’t going anywhere anytime soon in 2018. If streetwear isn’t your vibe, ripped jeans are a good place to start. They’re edgy and cool but you don’t come across as a hypebeast or as if you’re trying too hard. Below I’ll show you a super easy way to wear distressed jeans this winter. I’ll also round up the best ripped jeans for men that you can shop online.
Around this time last year, ASOS gifted me with this pair of distressed skinny jeans. I’ve worn them every other day since then. I love ripped jeans because they add a little more character to your look than a typical pair of jeans.
Lately, I’ve been into juxtaposing streetwear with more smart styles. Style is all about bending the rules so distressed denim is more versatile than you think. Of course, you can wear ripped jeans with a t-shirt. But they also look great when paired with a sleek overcoat or crisp button-down like I’m wearing in these photos.
The key is paying attention to the fit. The wrong fit can throw off the entire look. You want a pair that tapers at the bottom for a cleaner silhouette. Dressing up ripped jeans also calls for a dressier shoe like suede Chelsea boots. I have a black pair of ripped skinny from ASOS as well as my light blue ones. Black is going to be your dressier option because black is always sleek. Click on the slideshow below to shop the best ripped jeans for men. Check out this guide for another round up of jeans.
