Every season brings new denim styles with ripped and distressed details, especially in the summer. However, I always feel like it’s more of a Fall staple, almost symbolizing the switch from the lively, bright days of Summer into the breakdown to darker, cooler days when many of us would rather spend our time indoors hibernating, dreaming of the next cycle into Spring and Summer. Leaves start turning brown and falling to the ground just like ripped and distressed details become perfect companions for boots, jackets and the addition of layers. If you are like me and live in California, sometimes the beginning of Fall is warmer than our summer months, so ripped jeans can continue provide a little cool ventilation across seasons before things really cool down.
Joe’s has just released their Fall 2016 collection, which does include many clean denim styles for those not quite partial to distressing, but I noticed it seemed highlighted by all sorts of new ripped or patched up pieces to welcome in the upcoming season. Apart from jeans, we also have the Lyndon Pullover in either black (Onyx) or grey (Heather Grey). I don’t often see ripped up knits…in fact that last that I can think of is the popular ripped up star sweater from Wildfox last year! I’m sure there have been more, but it’s always an interesting style to see pop up now and then. In the denim department, we see raw and undone hems continue on, which is awesome because it was my favorite recent denim trend!
The Debbie Boyfriend Slim Crop in Ninette is such a classic Fall piece to me; a dark relaxed but fitted piece with a few ripped and abrasion details. The Rolled Skinny Mid Rise Ankle in Addison stuck out to me because I dig the rip detail over the left knee (something a little different than the popular knee rips this summer), and The Icon Mid Rise Ankle in Mando is a gorgeous grey jean with knee rips that would look so perfect under tall boots, or flats to show off their raw hems! If you like just some simple knee rips with an otherwise cleaner style, The Icon Mid Rise Ankle in Terri is a pretty choice (check out that wash)! I grabbed all of the pieces with beautiful ripped and repair details…check them out below! I love them all.
