One Girly Element

I love denims for their versatility. The blog title makes this obvious! I even wrote the 'Evolving Denim Trends – How to wear them now!' post about it. :)

I have been craving distressed jeans for a long time now. After a lot of searching and trials, I've finally found my perfect pair of distressed jeans. Ting! (showing off my teeth in happiness :P). 
I still doubt if I can ever pull off “ripped jeans” (my mother named it, “bhikari jeans”). Which reminds me of a scene from The Mindy Project where Danny says, “Why do people wear torn jeans? the only hole these people have is in their brains.” :P Though I truly believe that if ripped jeans are styled appropriately, not only do they look RAD but also your style quotient rises immensely. More importantly, one should be able to carry them off without making oneself look like a bhikari! Katrina Kaif could look good in almost anything and everything. Random thoughts aside, back to my fascination for distressed jeans. I bought these distressed jeans (wearing them in the post) from Zara. When buying them, I thought of wearing them only with a plain tee. But the styling ka keeda in me wanted to break out and to try something new and different (cliché, I know! :P). 
While putting the pieces together to style this look, I realized something important – when wearing distressed jeans or ripped jeans, add that ONE GIRLY ELEMENT  (unless you are going for the absolute street look or sporty look). Here is a FOOL PROOF TIP – add one girly element like stilettos. Wear a chic blazer to go for a semi-formal look. A pretty floral top can also help in balancing out the rowdiness of the ripped jeans. An example is Anushka Sharma's P.K. look. She is wearing pretty pastel colored sweaters with ripped jeans.

Check out the pictures below to see how I have styled my look with distressed denims. We found a wonderful opportunity to shoot inside the beautiful Taj Deccan, Hyderabad.

How beautiful and innovative is the idea to display spices in a Restro.

You are so right about adding a girly element to it like a pair of stiletto or something. Hahaha that Mindy project reference cracked me up.
