I’m a blue jean girl at heart and I would wear denim 7 days a week if I could. Am I speaking your language?
I also love a good pair of ripped jeans and today I’m sharing 3 simple ways to dress them up plus the one shoe you will wear all year long.
First things first…
I will be pre-shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this morning and have a blog post up on Friday morning with all my top pics from the sale. I will also have a Nordstrom Gift Card giveaway raffle on my Friday blog post so be on the look out for that. Early Access for Nordstrom cardholders online shopping opens at 11:30 CST on Friday, July 12th for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Please let me know if there is anything in particular you want me to look for.
Are you following me on Instagram? I will be doing lots of stories there as I peruse the sale and try things on so I would love for you to follow me. I also post lots of content on Instagram that doesn’t always make the blog.
HOW TO DRESS UP RIPPED JEANS
Ripped jeans are here to stay and while they were once considered ‘grunge’ we now pay good money for all those tears. In fact, the more rips our jeans have, the more expensive they are. Call us crazy, but ripped jeans have proven themselves worthy! While totally rugged, ripped jeans can actually look dressy and polished.
Here are my three simple tips to dress up your ripped jeans:
1.) Wear Heels
Without a doubt, the number one way to look dressier in your ripped jeans is to throw on a pair of heels, whether it be pumps, sandals, mules or boots. This will instantly add a touch of glam to an otherwise VERY casual denim look.
2.) Keep Your Accessories Elegant
Make sure your accessories are elegant and posh. A designer handbag, an exquisite belt and chic sunglasses paired with your your ripped jeans will make you look extra polished in even the most shredded jeans. Trust me on this.
3. Wear a Chic Duster or Blazer
Pair your jeans with a chic duster or blazer. No matter how ripped the jeans, a classy topper with take you from drab to fab. In fact, this is what I am most comfortable wearing 9 times out of 10. Read more about how to find your signature style.
You do not have to spend a lot of money on a blazer or duster. One of my all time favorite blazers is this one here for $88 and it looks so great with ripped denim. My chic utility duster is only $100.
WHAT I’M WEARING:
When I found this utility duster by Topshop, I knew it would be a fun piece to add to my closet. It elevates any look and is super versatile in either ivory or black. I love it styled over ripped jeans but it is really beautiful over a white blouse and a pair of slacks for a more professional look or over a pair of bermuda shorts for a fun, summer casual look.
My latest jean obsession are these Mother ankle chew jeans. These high waisted jeans are faded, ripped just right and fashionably frayed at the ankle. The cut is very slenderizing and I have literally worn them every day since they arrived!
I’ve accessorized my look with a Gucci Belt (wearing a size 80), my Prada handbag (be sure and check the Real Real for great deals on designer handbags) and my favorite sunnies, the Le Specs Air Heart.

The Shoe You Will Wear All Year Long!
My snake print mules by Steve Madden are my most worn shoes to date! They look and feel way more expensive than the under $100 price tag. I love the texture of these shoes because they feel like real python/snake! This is the shoe you will literally be wearing four seasons a year making them a MUST-HAVE. The colors and rich texture of this mule make them a perfect trans-seasonal shoe to wear with so many outfits. I adore this mule with jeans as I am wearing here but I also think this mule looks great with pants, skirts and dresses. They are available here and here. I would grab them soon as they have sold out at two other retailers.
