Tattered Tanks

Summer is coming to an end, but summer style doesn’t have to. One of my favorite items in my closet is my tattered tank by IRO. To be honest, I have several. They easily transition between seasons, layered under leather jackets, sweaters, and blazers.

I love the easy, loose cut of my IRO linen tanks and the holes are perfectly edgy. I wear little lacy black bras or bralettes (see my previous post) under the tanks, meant to peak through the holes. The look is flirty, casual with a rock star flair.

I make sure to pair the tank with jeans, leather pants, and colored denim to ensure not to show too much skin. Stacked bracelets in mixed metals and even leather are a must with this outfit. I always wear heels, the higher the better.

The linen fabric will stretch out as you wear it, but the more drapey it gets, the better in my opinion.

Distressed Denim

Isn’t interesting how we pay lots of money for jeans that are destroyed? My parents are always still mind boggled as to why I want jeans like this. Well, I do want jeans like this and love the broken in feel of destroyed denim. The key to getting the perfect pair of these jeans is the placement and amount of rips, tears and fraying.

I have several pairs all with varying amounts of destruction. My favorite brands of denim with this look are Hudson, American Eagle, J Brand, and Frame. Although I do not own any of the famous ‘Le Color Ripped’ Frame denim yet. 

The Hudson Nico distressed denim have minimal distressing and are so comfortable on the account of stretch woven into the jeans. My American Eagle pairs are ripped in the best areas and get better and better with each wash, as they have become more destroyed with time. J Brand makes some great options that have rips at just the knee and around the pockets, which makes for an easy way to break into this trend. The Frame ‘Le Color Ripped’ denim are slashed from the upper thigh to the knees. These are definately more sexy and a tighter fit as well. I have had my eyes on these for a while and many of my friends own them in both black and white.
