Torn With Glam

You paid money for torn up jeans? Um, yes, replied the teenager to her father at the check out line in a store.  As I listened to these strangers conversation, I was thinking how funny it sounded, but I had just done the same thing. And I'm older. The more distressed the jean, the trendier and the more money we will pay.  It's a cool trend that has been around for a little while, only the jeans are being shredded even more this season. The  jeans I am wearing are tame compared to the currently trending styles. 

Tips to Glam up your distressed look: Add a blazer over a tee, slip on a pair of sexy heels, wear a statement piece of jewelry.  Chandelier earrings add a touch of glam to tee's and jeans day or night. Try wearing your hair up, I love a classic ponytail, but braids are really hot right now.

Tips to Toughen up the distressed look: Wear booties, add a leather jacket, or wear your hair down with waves, try a rocker tee and sneakers.

If you are wondering why I touch my hair so much in my photos, it is because I am trying to keep it from falling in my face and looking crazy as it grows out.  I love my comfy boyfriend jeans and while others may not agree, I consider them a wardrobe staple. 

How do you feel about this trend, yay, nay or cray?
