Ripped jeans are those hip, edgy, and sexy denim pants that have holes in them. These holes can usually be found on the knees, although many pairs contain a scattering all throughout.

Sub categories include distressed denim, deconstructed pants, and torn jeans. They are quite popular these days, and many celebrities are incorporating them into their everyday street styles. That is no surprise considering that ripped jeans provide a stylish edge, especially when paired with the right boots and shoes.

Let us explore the different cuts of ripped jeans and how you can revamp your ripped-jeans look by matching them with the right pair of shoes.

1. Going the Boyfriend and Heels Route

Boyfriend jeans are denim pants that are folded above the ankle. Ripped boyfriend jeans look fantastic when paired with heels, whether ankle boots with heels, stiletto sandals, or pumps. Select ripped boyfriend jeans that are torn on the knees and have some bits of rips here and there.

3. Pairing Skinny Ripped Jeans with Sexy Shoes

Make a pair of sexy ripped skinny jeans look even sexier with a pair of hot shoes. For this type of ripped jeans, it doesn’t matter if you go for heels or choose flats. Heels create a more inviting look, but flats are great, too, for those easy, effortless styles that still maintain some sexiness.

Any shade of ripped skinny jeans will work just fine. Wear a loose-fitting blouse, which you can leave alone or layer with a blazer for a more tailored look. To emphasize your curves, a body-hugging top is perfect.

4. Going Rocker-Chic

Ripped jeans are also perfect when you want to rock that rocker-chic style. Simply add a leather jacket over a dark top, put on a pair of edgy ankle boots, and add the requisite studded silver accessories.

Whether you choose a pair of blue or black ripped denim, you can rock the style with ease.

5. Staying Comfy with an Edge

Nothing pulls off that comfy-with-some-style look than a pair of ripped jeans matched with an equally comfortable pair of sneakers.

If you’re tired of dressing to the nines and would just want to go easy and laid-back but would still want to maintain some style, try the ripped-jeans-with-sneakers combo or, better yet, the more trendy ripped-jeans-with-wedge-sneakers look.
