The irony of ripped denim is that it takes care to engineer something so careless. But it's that careless factor that keeps it on the fashion radar. For summer 2014, torn jeans continue to grow up and evolve, able to be worn in the most casual or most sophisticated of ways.
When talking about ripped jeans, the main challenge consists in trying to maintain a state of comfort, while still aiming for the distressed jeans to look efortlessly pulled together. The chicer, the better, but the stylish doesn't necessarily come by the way of channeling your feminity. From classy, edgy and super-tough approaches, to menswear inspired takes on the trend, the ways to enhance the shredded jeans appear rather endless and admittedly exciting. Complete the statement with slick heels to keep the balance leaning towards sophitication, or embellished flats for a super cool-slouchy look.
For today's post I chose to combine my ripped jeans with a traditional blouse. The Romanian traditional blouse also called "ie" has earned its place as a source of inspiration for fashion designers worldwide, including heavy names such as Tom Ford, who based one of his 2012 collection on traditional Romanian motifs. Every part of the ie, from the fabric itself to the intricate embroideries on the chest and sleeves, is entirely hand-made, and the design hasn't changed for hundreds of years. Every ie tells its own story.
When my father saw these shoes he told me: " oh, well, now you can be seen from an airplane" and I started to think he might have been right :) Despite his words, I still loveee these shoes because they can turn any dull, common oufit into a blast.
Thank you for reading and keep on smiling!
