However you like your denim cut, the key to this season's denim update is to let rip! From subtle scuffs to full on gaping holes, ripped jeans are the staple style for this year and the ultimate way to update your denim collection.
Skinny ripped jeans
If you refuse to part with your beloved skinny jeans, you don't have to step into looser fits just yet. Ripped jeans have given a new lease of life to the ever favoured skinnies, so you can still rock them and be ahead of the fashion crowd. Keep things subtle elsewhere if you're going to choose heavily distressed details. Women can wear their ripped jeans with retro look sweatshirts and block heels, while men can keep things minimal with ripped knee jeans, a plain shirt and a pair of brogues. Remember to turn up your denim to give it a further modern twist.
Relaxed ripped jeans
The fashion world is starting to lean towards more relaxed denim fits, whether it's boyfriend jeans, girlfriend jeans or just a sly straight cut. Ripped jeans in these designs are super stylish and streetwear inspired. Women can wear their rip jeans in a high waisted style with crop tops and trainers for a cool hipster fashion vibe, whilst men's ripped jeans team well with worker boots and a denim shirt for a double denim American feel. This season is also all about the logos, wear your rip jeans with a slogan t-shirt for a casual look with a stylish side.
