Would You Rock It?: Ripped Tights

It looks like 2009 is the new 1992. As we know, Grunge is back and it seems like the ripped tights trend is taking over our streets. Taylor Momsen (Gossip Girl), Miley Cyrus, and Shenae Grimes (90210) were the latest pop tarts seen rocking this look, but I don’t think anybody could do it the way Courtney, Miss Love if you’re nasty, does it on this month’s Elle UK. Work it girl!

    One time when I was about 7 or 8 years old my mom freaked out because I got a big rip in my brand new tights. Ever since then ripped tights have been a weakness of mine, regardless of whether or not they were in fashion. On the other hand, when the rips are obviously intentional (i.e. not of natural causes), it looks ridiculous and lame.

  2. i actually came across others taking it to the next level and using ripped tights for sleeves. http://www.fashiontoast.com/ peep the post from jan 25th. i guess others can pull it off, but i’d look ridiculous.

    If The Tights are BLACK and OPAQUE..then yes, i Shred them..make holes in them..pull and ladder them..sissor slash them..ciggarete burns..sandpaper drag them..cheese grater treatment ..even pour a very stong undiluted Bleach on them which almost destroys them if youre not careful…got most of these tips from school..so school opaque Black Tights dont last me more than 1 week!!
