Ripped jeans skin was showing, hot night wind was blowing, where you think you're going baby?

Firstly, let me apologise for the inclusion of Carley Rae Jepson lyrics in this post, I just couldn't resist. Of course it will make more sense (even if it doesn't become any more justifiable) when I tell you that this is an outfit post centred around the upcoming trend of *intense melodramatic drum roll* ripped jeans.

My go-to Topshop blue jeans have been coming to the end of their life for a while. The once skin-hugging pair now sag and wrinkle like a pair of boyfriend jeans. While I can't bring myself to chuck them out until they're truly beyond salvation, I did decide it was about time I invested in a new pair, which led me to the following Topshop black ripped skinny jeans. Whilst I did contemplate simply slitting a pair of old jeans, I soon realised I'd inevitably end up destroying them and would lose the joyous comfort of brand new Topshop skinny jeans.  
The fact that these jeans provide the general comfort and practicality a pair of jeans should, whilst having a slightly quirky edge to them is certainly very pleasing.
I was worried that by opting for black over blue in colour, I'd run the risk of no longer having a pair of jeans that can be thrown on with any combination of garments but they're surprisingly versatile. While my mum was not so impressed with my purchase of another black piece of clothing (the slits causing a slight breakdown) she did admit to liking them once they were on. Success.

Here's an outfit from this weekend featuring the aforementioned jeans, as well as some of my favourite versions of the trend on the high-street at the moment.

P.s. my overly colourful nails are a result of complete boredom during the week and I apologise.
