You Said: No to Ripped Up Jeans

June 14th, 2009


authentic-destroyed-wash-straight-jean_060809We asked: Would you wear Ripped Up Jeans?

You said:  No to Ripped Up Jeans, with a 65% to 35% vote.

Style tip? Ripped Up Jeans are one of the biggest trends for Summer 2009–but it’s not being welcomed by the very practical Omiru community.  It’s no wonder - these distressed jeans aren’t really for every occasion….and really wouldn’t work at work, even on Casual Friday.  But for those weekend days, if you really want to wear Ripped Up Jeans, we’d recommend pairing them with an sophisticated top - think a well-tailored blazer or a classic white shirt to create a elegant-with-an-edge look.  BTW: this advice holds true for both women and men.

Next question: Jelly Shoes rocked in the 80s, and they’re making a comeback this year…in much more sophisticated styles, thank goodness.  But what do you think about Jelly Shoes?  Tell us, would you wear Jelly Shoes?   Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    Hah! Vindicated! I thought I was the only one shunning ripped jeans.

    I adore the jelly shoe comeback, especially the fabulous styles from Melissa.

    I always associate jelly shoes with blisters and sweaty, stinky feet. I’ll be voting “no”!

    I have two pairs of ripped denim, and let me say I’ve never received more compliments on any piece of clothing like my torn up jeans!

    Yikes– I remember the blisters too

    How about ripped jeans with jelly shoes?
    My vote: No to both

    Sweaty, sweaty feet which was offset by wearing multiple layers of thin neon colored socks with our jelly shoes. Mimi, add an oversized blazer to that outfit and it would be totally smashing!

    Basically who would wear ripped jeans to work…
    Really…are you that dense..
    Or who would wear them to a wedding! I love ripped jean. On those hot rainy days you can still have a breeze come through. You can dress then up or down on the weekends. But Jelly’s…
    Eww..come on! Its like wearing sneaker with no socks! It makes yur feet stinky and sweaty!
    Yes to jeans no to Jelly’s
