Jamie Chung wore head-to-toe American Eagle #AEOStyle while ice skating, tossing snowballs and going on a hot chocolate run with her friend’s daughter in New York City recently. We’re loving this classic sweater, snug-fitting jeans, and the pop of color in he beanie hat.
The trendsetting star looked cool and casual in her Fair Isle Crew Sweater and red Ribbed Beanie—both holiday pieces from the brand’s “Legendary Gift” collection—completing the laidback look with a pair of the brand’s signature destroyed Skinny Jeans. Below are additional details on her outfit as well as a link to download hi-res imagery of the individual pieces.

More spring outfit inspiration coming your way today with a stunning look by blogger Viva Luxury. She combined a pair of destroyed vintage-inspired boyfriend jeans with some sleek separates and accessories in mint green and coral. We’re loving the results, which you can shop below.
When seasons change, it’s hard to strike a balance between the one forecast and the next. Late summer is probably the easiest to dress for though, because you can always throw on/remove a jacket or a cardigan without much fuss. Try a pair of cuffed boyfriend jeans paired with a tucked-in top and a summer blazer for an early fall look that will stand out against everyone’s immediate transition to darker hues (while still shielding you from chilly breezes). Polish style blogger Martyna pulls off the look with ease below. Scroll to get it!
For an utterly breezy and casual springtime outfit, take a cue from style blogger Andy Torres. Light wash jeans look excellent with bolder hues up top, but they’re in a whole new element when worn with chilly neutrals. She paired her destroyed skinnies with a gray sweatshirt top and classic trench coat, and pulled it all together with solid silver and black accessories. Get the look below!
Here in the Denim Therapy office, we see our fair share of rips and tears – especially in the crotch area. But rarely do we see crotch tears that were made intentionally. As you can see, one of our new best customers is currently dealing with a case of a very jealous (and very vindictive), scissor-wielding, soon-to-be ex-husband, and she came to us for help. See, we really do offer endless types of therapy here. Stay tuned to see these jeans post-therapy!
One of our biggest repair projects to date showed up in the Denim Therapy office last week. Stay tuned for posts tracking their therapy session and the story of what it takes to go from a perfect pair of blues to this:
If you like the look of white denim but full length skinnies in white are a bit too cute for your tastes, consider taking a scissor to those babies and making them a true statement of glamorous rebellion! As shown below, white destroyed denim can be worn with a band T-shirt and rolled sleeves for a hung-over-from-the-coolest-concert-ever aura, or you can add a pretty bohemian trapeze top to gear it in the free-spirited festival-direction. For shoes, anything from converse sneakers to a serious pair of platform heels will make it happen. Don’t forget—all you need are a pair of scissors and a mission.
Are you in the Halloween spirit yet? If you’re like me, you’re still scrambling to put together that last minute — but awesome — Halloween costume that involves nothing more than some zombie makeup (white face paint, eyeliner and purple eye shadow), teased hair and ripped up clothes. Living in Los Angeles, it sometimes feels like Halloween year-round, but on Sunday, we’ll really commit to that creepy look!
And, of course, you’ve got to throw in the distressed and mangled jeans for cool appeal. There are still lots of ripped up, shredded, destroyed and frayed jeans featured online for your DIY inspirations. In my search for varying degrees of ripped jeans, I must say, Blank Denim really picked up where Current/Elliott left off on the destroyed jeans factor. They really owned their ripped jeans this summer. Cheap Monday also has some super frayed jeans that give everyone a run for their money!
