While lace-up legs on the Preen runway caught our eye, we've seen similar seam-ripping rocker looks in street style. Back in July, Rumi of Fashion Toast wore her lattice-cut acid wash jeans in a blog post titled "Deranged Denim," but we'd be delusional if we weren't inspired by those photos. We've seen party girls in tights with a barely-there side stitch in Canada, and brassiere-like hook-and-eye lined Acne Jeans in Stockholm. During fashion week Anja Rubik was spotted in a pair of slashed Wolford leggings, which has inspired a few DIY versions. Girls are all about styling these side-stripped details in their legs, and check out the photos we have to prove it.
