For off-duty outfit inspiration, you can’t beat the latest wave of celebrities wearing ripped jeans. While we’re used to seeing celebrities rock over the top frocks on the red carpet, we’re just as likely to see them wearing oh-so-casual outfits off it. Ripped jeans are at the height of the grunge revival and they’re the must-have item of the moment. Check out these celebrities wearing ripped jeans and let us know who you think wore this distressed denim trend the best.
When it comes to celebrities wearing ripped jeans, Jessica Alba works a polished off-duty look. She teams a pair of skinny jeans, ripped at the knees, with a plain white tee and classic black blazer. Reflective sunglasses, a leopard print handbag, and cat-shaped shoes add fun touches to an otherwise timeless outfit.
Olivia Palermo is another celebrity to show us that the easiest way to dress up some ripped jeans is with a smart blazer. She teams some blue distressed skinny jeans with a white tee, contemporary grey blazer, and patterned loafers. It’s an understated everyday look that still speaks volumes in the style stakes.
They don’t call her a style icon for no reason. Here, Kate Moss dresses up a pair of very casual ripped jeans with a black turtleneck top, tux-style blazer, and patent platform booties. The jeans come in a very distressed bleach-washed finish and she wears them rolled at the cuffs, which adds a laid-back touch to an otherwise polished look.
Selena Gomez takes the trend to the next level in a pair of really ripped jeans. Here she wears jeans with strategically placed rips at the knees and thighs. They’re quite busy so she was smart to keep the rest of her outfit fairly simple, teaming her jeans with a flowy blouse, strappy espadrilles, and minimal jewellery.
Julianne Hough wears her ripped jeans with a bit of modern boho flair. She teams a pair of blue ripped skinny jeans with a printed blouse, tassel bucket bag, and camel booties. The look is laid-back and refreshed, and one that you could easily recreate on a budget.
Rihanna is always at the forefront of street fashion, so it’s surprising that she’s taken a less is more approach to her ripped denim look. She wears a pair of light blue ripped skinny jeans with a printed t-shirt and light pink strappy heels (to match her eye-catching pink cropped hairdo).
Kendall Jenner brings it back to basics by pairing her faded ripped jeans with a plain white tee. Her accessories create quite a contrast, however, with the buckled biker boots being quite grunge and the quilted handbag more of a classic touch.
Camilla Belle takes a preppy approach to dressing her ripped jeans. She teams some cropped ripped jeans with a collared short-sleeve blouse and slip on espadrille shoes. A printed head scarf and powder blue structured handbag complete this casual daytime look.
We’re more used to seeing her wear the classic model-off-duty outfit of skinny jeans and a leather jacket, but here Miranda Kerr wears some looser jeans with a slight tear at one knee. She dresses up the slouchy jeans with a grey t-shirt, navy blazer, pointed shoes, and designer handbag.
Nikki Reed works a relaxed look by teaming her ripped jeans with a plain tee, khaki jacket, and brown ankle boots. It’s the kind of outfit that you could easily recreate using items from your own wardrobe. The large tan tote is also perfect for carrying all your day to day essentials.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wears her ripped jeans out at night. She dressed up a baggier style of jean by teaming it with a furry sweater, pointed heels, gold patterned clutch, and chunky chain necklace. A slicked back pony tail completes this stylish look.
They all look effortlessly chic in their ripped jeans, but which of these celebs pulled off the look better than the rest? How do you wear ripped jeans, or have you skipped this trend?
