With the still-blooming trend of rips and tears, I decided to get in on the action in my very own, skint-student, way.
My best friend, Jenisha (hey babes), and I decided to go on a night out in Leicester this recent Bank Holiday Monday – on the Sunday, that is. We decided to go pretty casual as neither of us could be bothered to go the full shebang.
I simply did my make-up carefully – using all nudes as usual – and decided to throw on some light blue jeans, my Calvin Klein sports bra, a mesh top and a light-weight camo jacket. I accessorised with some heeled army boots and my Ariel-approved mermaid, holographic bag.
Getting ready early, I had time to obsess over my outfit and find 50 different problems with it. But one thing I couldn’t get out of my head was a picture of the new Queen of the Jean, Khloé Kardashian in ¾ length, ripped jeans. Being brave, I grabbed some scissors and ran to my Mum, who was watching a very interesting documentary on Prince.
After cropping the full length jeans to just under my new and adding 3 slits on each thigh, we got to work opening up the gaps and fraying them so they look nice and distressed.
It took about 15 minutes to create and I have since got a bunch of compliments wearing them!
Not bad for a few year-old pair of jeans and some scissors. Show me yours with #RippedJeans.
