Members Only Ripper Skinny Jean
Available at: singer22.com
As I've watched the trendy denim get progressively more distressed, I've wondered when we'd get to a straight up '80s-style ripped jeans look. I believe that day has arrived... and I don't hate it as much as I thought I would. My memories of wearing ripped up jeans in middle school are more about slashed up knees and the occasional scandalous rip where the back pocket should be. This time around the distressing is more natural looking, and a little more artful than what a 6th grader with a pair of shears could pull off.
Gossip Girl cutie Taylor Momsen was recently snapped wearing a pair of skinny jeans that definitely hit the advanced end of the ripped and distressed continuum. Yes, the last time we saw serious ripping in jeans was the '80s, but the progression of distressing was bound to lead here and holes in your denim need not look like a throwback item. Paired with a modern drapey tee and super strappy heels, Taylor's jeans don't look the least bit retro.
Want to steal Taylor Momsen's super ripped jeans look for yourself? She's wearing the brand new Ripper Skinny Jean from Members Only. This new skinny jean is currently available on pre-order in Cornflower Blue and Mid Blue Wash (seen on Taylor). The combination of distressing and strategic ripping actually looks really fun-- perfect for a night out or shopping in the see-and-be-seen part of town. You know you're ready to take the plunge.
