What's Up With The Ripped Jeans Trend?

I needed a new pair of jeans so I went to Kohl's. It's a store full of glorious items and I knew I'd find what I'd need.

At least I thought I would.

I walked in and searched for jeans and I found this:





And then this:





I blinked, confused. Where were are the normal non-ruined jeans? I walked further and saw these:






"What's happening?" I said out loud, frightening a customer beside me. She scurried away. I suppose I looked perturbed, because a worker asked if I needed help.

"Yes," I answered, flustered. "Do you have any jeans without the rips?"

She smiled. She was either thinking, "Oh man, I KNOW, this ripped trend is ridiculous!" or, "Oh my God lady, get with times. No one wears non-ripped jeans anymore." But she showed me regular jeans that I couldn't stick my entire arm through. They were just in the back where the other uncool clothes sit.

I admit, I don't get the torn look. Why on earth would I pay money for ruined jeans? Some people might be all, "But it's the style!" and I'll reply, "But why? Who decided jeans that looked like they were in a fight with a jungle cat is the style? And why are people going along with it?"





People can wear what they want. But me? I'll always be in jeans that a toddler can't stick his face through.




My daughter loves her ripped jeans. She is all about the trend.








Do you wear ripped jeans?

  3. I have accepted the trend and have a few pairs of ripped jeans now. I will get some regular clothes the next time I shop and hopefully the trend will pass.

  4. Ripped jeans is indeed a trend nowadays. Before I used to wear a little ripped because of over usage now you could really buy a ripped one. Well, they say it's fashion trend.

  5. I do not wear these ripped jeans. I had a pair of normal jeans that had a tear in them and it got bigger so I tossed them.

  6. I never really understood this trend, why would you want to wear something that looks like it's falling apart? Thanks so much for sharing this with all of us!

  7. I do not get it either, but fashion doesn't always make sense. Meanwhile my son and his cousin all have these types of pants!

  8. Haha! I love most ripped jeans. It makes me think of my teenage years working at Abercrombie, haha!

  9. I remember these when I was younger. I didn't get them then and I don't get them now, I'd just be worried they would rip more.

  10. I totally have some of each. My hubby got my ribbed jeans for me and I do like them.

  11. I love the ripped jeans trend! I have a few pairs my self.

  12. This trend has been around for a while. I like it though. I have both styles. There are ribbed jeans that are definitely too much, but I try to stick with the conservative ripped ones hahaha

  13. I actually love the ripped jeans. They are one of my favorite looks. I have been wearing them for years.

  14. I wore ripped jeans the first time around, back in the '80s when the rips were generally because we'd bleached the #e11 out of them in the washer for something like 18 hours, so the fabric was basically falling apart. Once and done is more than enough for me on this trend, so I'm right there with ya, Mama. #momjeans all the way

  15. They can't wear them at my daughter's school, thankfully! But my niece can at hers. If she can't find ripped jeans, she'll chop hers up. Drives me INSANE!

  16. I have to admit that I love a good ripped jean. I used to buy them from a charity store, sand them and then rip more holes in them using a razor blade. I would still do it if I weren't so hell bent on preserving my clothes now.

  17. I am cool with the ripped jeans trend to some extent. I've seen so many with huge holes! However, your daughter really rocks her jeans! So gorgeous.

  18. I don't wear ripped Jean's, but I think they're cute. It's all my teenage daughter wears!

  19. No, I don't wear ripped jeans. I also don't get it either. My oldest does have one pair with some rips in them, but I just don't get it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Haha, I don't get it either and don't buy them. I do wear a modern skinny look though, so no totally mom-jeans look here. And interestingly enough, none of my adult daughters wear ripped jeans either, although all of them have great style.

  21. Your daughter is adorable. I have 1 pair of ripped jeans but only because I was out of town and needed another outfit and that's ALL they had in a 4. I don't wear them but I did then. I feel like I'm too old for them but it's hard to find any good ole plain jeans in my size.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I don't care for them either. One time I bought a pair to try them on, and I felt too old to be wearing them. I'm in my early 40s but I'd rather have stylish jeans that aren't filled with holes.

  23. I do have a few pairs of ripped jeans and my mom always asks me about them lol. I have mixed feelings about ripped jeans in general.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh yes! I have notice this trend. My kids have not gotten into the look yet!

    ReplyDelete
  25. You know, I have actually worn ripped jeans but it's definitely not my preference. I'll take a traditional pair over ripped any day of the week.

  26. I love that GIF lol! It's so fitting too. I have a few pairs, but I have to admit the ones you shared are really ripped! The few I own are less obvious and decently placed.

  27. Ehh ripped jeans aren't for me either. My kids can't wear them to school because of the dress code, so I've never even asked what they thought of them. But your daughter looks adorable so maybe I'm okay with them for other people, just not for me.

  28. I love ripped jeans :) still have some in my closet. I don't wear them often anymore, maybe I am getting too old for this fashion trend?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm one of those who really likes the ripped jeans trend, but I can totally see why others wouldn't. I also wear jeans that aren't ripped, though. :)

  30. I used to wear ripped jeans, but that was way before they were in style. I was too practical to throw out a pair of jeans just because I had worn out the knees.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I like it though. This is trend has been popular.I actually love the ripped jeans. They are one of my favorite looks. I have been wearing them for years.

  35. My niece is into ripped jeans. I always tell her to just ruined her old pants and don't buy a ripped one. Haha! Maybe I am too old for this fashion already. Lol.

  36. Ripped jeans are my favorite too! They are looks so cool and the design was so amazing! Love those designs

  40. Oh man I love ripped jeans... ha ha! It probably helps that a few of ripped jeans are my most comfortable jeans and I think they look super cute. However, I cannot have ripped jeans for "jean Friday" at work, so I do have non-ripped jeans that I love. Maybe I love my ripped jeans so much more because I can only wear them on rare occasion?
