Frayed, ripped, torn, destroyed denim are a big part of Spring's 2013 trend list. Distressed detailing takes denim to a whole new level of casual-cool. Ripped denim is no longer considered grunge-only, worn with a silky blouse and heels gives an edgy vibe to a rather classic look. Beware of the bad placement rips. A huge rip that bares the lower part of your butt, well that's a little too rebellious and trashy for me. You want the rips to be natural looking in spots like the knees, the pockets, etc. and not extreme.
No need to pay top dollar for this trend. Buy yourself some cheap jeans, skirts, overalls, shorts, etc and DIY. The best "How To Distress Jeans" tutorial I've found on-line is by Free People. Check it out and have fun with it.
