Ripped jeans are a pair of denim jeans that feature tears, rips, incisions, or abrasions mainly on the knees yet not limited to the knees but on any other area on the pants from thighs to knees and beyond. Such rips impart a worn-out, and frayed look to the jeans as the tightly woven denim loses and the naked area of skin peeps out from beneath. Such jeans are a popular fashion statement. However, wearing them is a bold choice as they are loud and referred to as rebellion.
Origin Of The Ripped Jeans:
Ripped jeans have their origin in the Punk-rock movement dated in the 1970s. A movement led by the youth from all over the globe to break the conventional norms of the society- that they felt, no longer serve them.
The early rock movement inclined towards tearing apart consumer goods as an expression of annoyance and a symbol of rebellion against society. Then they adopted denim as their language of expression, and soon men and women started wearing teared-up jeans and jackets- aggressively put together with revolutionary slogans and pins.
So the movement soon turned into a fashion trend when the musicians like Iggy Pop, Curt Cobain, and The Ramones, among many others, started wearing them. With that already happening, the movement further jumped on the bandwagon of becoming a fashion trend when celebrities like Madonna and many others popularized it. Fans soon followed it by ripping their jeans at home. However, to warm their hands in the burning fire, denim brands start customizing them as consumer goods.
Since then, ripped jeans are considered quite a statement, and even now prominent names like Kim Kardashian, Gigi Hadid, Jennifer Aniston, Deepika Padukon, and Sonam Kapoor flaunt them from their prominent to casual public appearances, like red carpet and airport, etc. Furthermore, Meghan Markle wore blue ripped jeans paired with a white shirt to Invictus Games- when she made her first public appearance with Harry Windsor in 2017.
