The New Wave Of Ripped Jeans Isn’t What You Expect

They've become a staple in our wardrobes, especially for weekend brunching, and we've figured out how to transform them from sloppy to chic.
But, the new wave of destroyed denim is taking it up a notch. It's not just about rips and tears anymore — we're talking full-on sequins, crazy patches, and new silhouettes. Luckily, these jeans can still be easily styled in the same ways as your favorite go-to pair; most look best with a white tee or another basic top. Just be prepared to get a few double-takes on the sidewalk. Click on for 10 pairs of ripped jeans that make a statement.
