3. Ripped Denim Jeans + Cardigan

While extremely distressed denim has unfortunately gone out of trend, ripped denim jeans still have a place in our hearts (and closet) this year as evidenced by this generation's affinity for loose-fitting jeans but with smaller rips. You can style this piece with a cardigan for a casual yet cool aesthetic.
