The One Thing You Should Never Wear With Ripped Jeans

The art of pulling off ripped jeans comes down to one important trick: Don't pair them with other distressed items. Since the denim style already lends streetwear edge to any outfit, adding in other worn-in pieces can make the look read as sloppy instead of cool. Instead, stick to pieces like a blazer and turtleneck for a polished outfit, a voluminous top and ankle boots for something on trend, or a simple T-shirt and a leather moto jacket to achieve a model-off-duty look.

Ahead, take some inspiration from fashion girls and see the outfits they're wearing with black ripped jeans, then shop a pair for yourself.
