Wow, Katie Looks So Cool In Her $400 Mauled Jeans

The distressed skinny jean trend has me torn (yes, I said it) because it speaks to two dueling sensibilities of mine.  While I adore the carefree rock 'n' roll vibe, my preppy streak dictates that leaving the house in torn up clothing is just never going to happen. At least celebs like Katie Holmes (shown here in PRPS Dart skinny jeans, $360) know how to make the trend work.  As always, it’s about balance—keep your top half subdued to avoid looking like the cat went ballistic in your closet.

But what we can't figure out is why one would shell out nearly $400 for a pair of jeans that are basically falling apart. While these Current/Elliotts ($216) are not as pricey as Katie's skinnies, they're still over the $200 mark. And bebe's Rolled and Destroyed Skinny Jean ($139), while fun in that 80s throwback kind of way, still hits triple digits. Why not put some scissors and sandpaper to good use on a pair from the back of your closet?
