Sometimes adding a little bit of edginess to your ensemble is easier than you think! One street style look we’ve been dying to try is shredding up pieces of our clothing. From shirts to dresses to tights, nothing is off-limits for this take on the grungy ’90s trend, plus it’s adds an instant touch of texture to any ensemble. We know that most people are hesitant to start tearing up their wardrobe right away, so we found girls who sported this punkier look in the most classy (and cop-worthy!) of ways. We’ll bet by the end you’ll be wanting to pull apart ALL your favorite pieces!

Once you get past that mouthful of a blog title (trying saying it ten times fast!), you’ll see the lovely Amsterdam-based blogger Cindy and her city-chic style. She sported a torn-up Rouge et Noir white tee under an open leather jacket, skinny black jeans, tall black leather boots, and chain cross-body bag. We like that she tucked in her shirt to pull the entire look together, and DANG, girl’s got hair for dayyssss.

Lydia Ellis of Lookbook
We’ve seen countless ladies wearing torn-up tights around the hood, but it takes a certain gal to work them into a class-act ensemble—that’s why we love Lydia! Our UK lady wore a studded collar Topshop leather jacket and a buttoned-up-to-the-tippy-top white studded shirt tucked into high-waisted American Apparel shorts. We’re obsessed with her commitment to sporting these super-shredded tights with snake skin Topshop oxfords for an all-out school-girl-gone-grunge look.

Rebecca Lien of Fashion Infusion
New York-based fashion blogger Rebecca DIYed her shredded sleeveless black shirt on just the back for a subtle hint of skin. She paired this with cutoff Marc Jacobs pink shorts, killer Jeffery Campbell Lana booties, THE Alexander Wang studded bag, and Lanvin x H&M sunglasses. We’re kind of obsessed with this badass look and can’t WAIT to try it out this summer!
