Ripped jeans aren't your standard classic jeans but they've become a new sort of class. They're not that good looking compared to a dark crisp jean or even one of those new crayon colored jeans, but they seem so attractive; and because they're so popular it makes you want to try it at least once! But why is it so hard to make it look like youre put together? and not thrown up. There isn't a rule on how to style yourself but there is a formula. There has to be a mesh between sane and appropriately crazy so that you don't end up looking like a 10th grader who ignores his mom every-time she yells "throw away those jeans!"

The trick is to play with textures, not really focusing on what matched. I paired my ripped jeans with high heel suede and metal sandals. This also looks appropriate with flat sandals but opt for the flat  sandals with the one metal band over the foot, just like these; less is more. I was choosing between a white silk button up and this sweater. It was cold, so I chose the sweater and added a nude tank underneath (as you can see, it's got a mesh fabric in the front and a chiffon fabric in the back). But if you choose a silk button up, add a crisp blazer on top. I added the classic leather bag and my black classic ol' raybans again to complete my look. 

Just in case you didn't know, your APPLE products will have a new update soon: the iOS 7! So keep checking your general settings or sign up to apple.com so that you know when to update. Apparently, it's better than buying the new iPhone 5s/ 5c!
