“Did you trip?”
“Are we experiencing some kind of recession?”
“Don’t your knees feel cold?”
2018 is a fashion-forward year, so it is a mystery to me as to why some people still give snide comments about ripped jeans. Ripped jeans are denim jeans with noticeable tears or rips, often on the knees, but also on any other part of the pants.
While it’s true that a huge percentage of the world’s female population got addicted to these jeans – I’ll say it now – it’s not just a female fashion staple anymore, it’s everyone’s, even men’s. So forget the snooty comments, because fashion isn’t about dressing according to other’s taste. If anything, it’s about dressing according to your preferred style. If you are a guy who’s hesitant about wearing these jeans, maybe this article will change your mind.
5 Reasons Why More Guys Should Wear Ripped Jeans
5. They are sexy.
Take it from someone like Matteo Guidicelli: a man who wears ripped jeans is walking in uncomfortable territory. But that’s the thing – being in uncomfortable territory will let you exude a simple yet bad-boy charm that is always worth a second or even a third look. The sexiness is tied to the man’s confidence, because you don’t see just any guy rocking an unusual, risky get-up, do you?
As Matteo sees it, “the ripper, the better.” It doesn’t matter what top you pair it with, the vibe is automatically called “wild and sexy.”
4. They are comfortable.
Some guys believe that ripped jeans are too warm for the Philippines. That’s not exactly the case. You can always find effortlessly lived-in, lightweight, and versatile pieces, so you can do basically anything while wearing them!
A new fashion line called the Avel X Matteo, for example, launched pretty recently – with carefully curated wearable, elastic, and comfortable ripped jeans. The best thing about these jeans is that you can wear them, and easily transition from day to night! They’re perfect to wear anytime and anywhere!
3. They are easy to mix and match.
A man can mix and match, be creative, and just be bold with his fashion choice when wearing ripped jeans. Be unusual. Make it look good. It’s all up to you. Thinking of going for a basic look with a plain white shirt and trainers? Ripped jeans can complete the look and even add a bit of spunk! Always wanted to try a grunge style? Denim can hold the outfit together and give you the style you’re aiming for. The fact is that ripped jeans conveniently go with everything.
2. They give you a new fashion choice.
If you’re not a fan of ripped jeans, it’s okay. One way or another, though, you’re gonna want to resist traditional ideas of what fashion is (simple and comfortable), and wear something new – like ripped jeans! When you’re ready to give ripped jeans a try, be sure to embrace them fully and wear them with confidence!
1. They will make you comfortable in your own skin.
Arguments about ripped jeans being only for “females” is not an unheard opinion. In fact, it’s the same reason why some men hesitate wearing them. Tap into your inner rebel and don’t let what other people say get to you. It’s all about how you feel and look while wearing your clothes. So if wearing ripped jeans will make you sexier, hotter, and 2x more fashionable, don’t be afraid to give it a go! You want more holes in your pants? BIG DEAL. Be comfortable in your skin.
