We must admit, this ripped-and-tattered trend does have a certain appeal to it. There's something about looking effortless and carefree that even our models and celebrities can't stay away from. But how exactly can we wear the distressed denim without looking ratty in some scruffy old pair of jeans? This is where we get help from these stylish ladies who seem to know it best.
Scroll down and take sartorial notes from Kathryn Bernardo, Liza Soberano, Georgina Wilson, and Martine Cajucom on how to wear your distressed denims and still be well-dressed.
Our Preview cover girl Liza Soberano opts to keep it dainty and sweet while sporting the distressed trend. Balance out the edginess of your ripped boyfriend jeans by pairing it with something feminine like lace and a pair of ballerina flats.
Go a little adrogynous and cop Martine Cajucom's touristy #OOTD. A basic scoop neck tank top works well with a pair of boyfriend jeans for an effortless model-off-duty look. You can even throw on a leather bomber jacket to score some extra cool points.
Here's how our Teen Queen, Kathryn Bernardo, plays with denim. Add a youthful twist to your ensemble and show a bit of skin by donning the cropped top trend with an unbuttoned chambray shirt. You can also go for a white pair of ripped jeans instead of the usual lightwashed denim to keep it fun and interesting.
Here's an easy way to give a touch of sophistication to your ripped jeans' laid-back feel. Take it from Georgina Wilson to make an outfit look instantly chic. Follow her lead by pairing your distressed denim with a long blazer and a pair of heels to help you stay classy in a "scruffy" trend.
