This Friday my style is all about my DIY ripped jeans. Yes, you got it right. I took scissors and ripped my old Levi’s blue jeans. I must admit, doing that wasn’t easy. Not emotionally nor technically. But it worthed. Don’t you think? Thinking about all the things I do in the name of fashion. Makes me feel a bit silly sometimes. Well, as long as I look stylish, I’m fine with that. So, DIY ripped jeans are on this Friday.
I already wrote about the fashion buzz the ripped jeans made weeks ago. Either in black or in blue, you can’t miss this fashion trend when wearing the ripped jeans. Although, the line between looking stylish and looking sloppy in the ripped jeans is even thinner than you might imagine. You can’t wear everything you have in your closet with your ripped jeans. True, the black ripped jeans many options, yet to you need to limit yourself to get that chic look everyone will talk about. Anyway, enough about the black ripped jeans for now. If you want to find out more about how to wear the black ripped jeans, go here. I wrote about them before. Only one thing to remind you, before I head on to the blues ripped jeans I’m wearing today. Remember, the most fashionable and chicest way to style the ripped black jeans is to put on some white embellished sneakers and the fishnet stockings.
MY FRIDAY STYLE
As I wrote before it is all about my DIY blue ripped jeans today. I had these jeans on the bottom of my closet for years now. Honestly, they were waiting for me to finally get them out, folded on the bottom shelf of my closet. The thing is, that I never really knew how to wear them to look chic and self-confident wearing them. I still think they make me look fat, though. However, at least they look chic now. After I took the scissors in my hand and ripped them. Anyway, more about my DIY ripping project later. First, a lesson on how to style the blue ripped jeans.
HOW TO WEAR BLUE RIPPED JEANS
Wearing the ripped blue jeans is nothing like wearing the ripped black jeans. It takes much more effort to make this outfit looking stylish, chic and moreover classy. To elevated this outfit you need to wear at least two somehow elegant pieces with your blue ripped jeans. The first piece to put on is certainly nice heels. Put on some heels in natural colour. Preferably in white. You know, the white shoes are the “it” shoes this season. You can opt for pumps or ankle boots. It’s still winter after all. I went for the pumps. Blink on one eye when looking at my photos. It was snowing, so I had to wear ivory heels this time. The same one, I ruined last weekend, when I wore them in the rain with the tweed skirt. By the way, you can check that outfit here.
Secondly, you need to put on a classic shirt or a thin dark turtleneck pullover. I’m wearing a black shirt this time. And styling that blouse with refined black leather gloves and small black satchel. Another it piece of the season. I wear it as a handle bag, though.
Wrap your outfit with an elegant coat that ends in the middle of the biggest hole in your jeans. So here you have it, a perfect casual Friday style, with a slight dash of elegance, which perfectly ends the working week and brings you straight to the weekend.
SHOP MY STYLE
I’m wearing Levi’s jeans, Weekend Maxmara double breasted ivory coat, black ruffled blouse, DKNY mini black tote, Burberry black leather gloves, and Fornarina ivory pumps. Again, I found some similar pieces of clothing that I’m wearing from the designer and high street retailer.
Almost forgot to mention the makeup I’m wearing this Friday. Nothing special, though. I’m wearing dark velvet Burberry lipstick, Burberry plum eyeshadows and Dior rosy blush and mascara. You can find all the products I used in a gallery bellow.

DIY RIPPED JEANS
Finally, about my DIY ripping project. I still can’t believe I did that. Obviously, I don’t regret it. Despite all the cuts on my hand and knees. It seems like ripping my jeans while wearing them wasn’t the best idea at all. Making the perfect holes in your jeans isn’t as easy as it sounds, you know. Especially if you are so bad with scissors, as I am. I should probably say, don’t do it at home, by yourself. Still, I know you won’t listen to me. And before you know, you will be sitting there in the middle of your bedroom floor with scissors in your hand. And surrounded by at least two pairs of torn jeans.
At this point, the best advice l can give it to you is to get yourself ripped jeans from the professionals. Read in the store. I did the homework for you and found some fabulously ripped jeans. From designers and high street retailers. You can find my selection of the best blue ripped jeans here on my Chic List – The Blue Ripped Jeans. And if you prefer darker jeans, the selection of black ripped jeans here on Chic List – The Black Ripped Jeans.
Then again, if you feel ready to ruin some jeans and turning them into the most stylish piece of clothing this season, here is what you need to know.
- Try on the jeans before you take scissors in your hand.
- Take a pencil and mark the holes.
- Find some not so sharp scissors or even better knife. I actually used the alpha knife. You know what I mean. That knife you usual use to cut the paper.
- Maka a line cut. Then use your hands and tore the jeans.
