Ripped denim has slowly sneaked into most people's wardrobes. I think a lot of people always had a pair of ripped jeans hidden in the deep dark depths of their wardrobe. Whether you took a pair of scissors to an old pair of jeans or shorts and ripped to your heart's delight or you bought a ripped pair, freshly ripped by a machine - either way I am sure you love them!
I bought this pair of shorts in Forever 21 two years ago. They are one of my most comfortable pair of shorts, and I pair them with pretty much any top or tee that I have.
