The ripped jeans is now very much in vogue. Indians term it as ' shabby fashion.' It has worked well in most countries and is fast catching up in other places too. Teenagers especially, are crazy after this style and they sure know what looks cool on them without getting influenced by the latest trends.
Ripped jeans have been worn as a fashion statement since the 1970's. During the 1970's many chose to deform their jeans in an effort to separate themselves from mainstream culture. Ironically, the mainstream eventually embraced ripped jeans. Today ripped jeans and patched jeans have become part of the fabric of American culture. Both styles are now welcome in places that range from the dorm room to the board room, the art studio to the art opening, and the vegetable garden to the garden gala.
