Ripped jeans are more weekend attire than office outfit, but that’s not to say you can’t dress ’em up a little bit. Instead of pairing your ripped jeans with anything that makes you look like a hobo (aka oversized sweaters and sneakers), why not wear them with pumps and a button-down blouse? It’s an unexpected twist that’s sure to amp up your outfit. You’ll find that the mix of styles actually has an effortless quality that you don’t get with just a plain old dress and heels, or even jeans and a tee. And where does this carelessness come from? It’s all in the ripped jeans baby! They give you a casual, yet still polished look.
