Giving an outfit a fierce, laidback look is as easy as throwing on a pair of jeans. Ripped jeans, that is. Ideal for dressing down and achieving that chic, relaxed look, here are our favourite distressed jeans.

#1 The Classic

Rag & Bone’s skinny jeans are like the perfect porridge – not too high and not too low. Made from American soft, stretch denim, these mid-rise jeans are perfect for laidback sophistication that flatters all your curves. 

Rag & Bone's Skinny Distressed mid-rise jeans are available at Net-A-Porter

#2 The Casual

Throw together Mavi’s high rise, skinny jeans with your favourite old tee or a cheeky cropped top for an effortlessly stylish look. Plus, it’s an excuse to wear that ratty T-shirt which hasn’t seen the outside of your house for years.

Mavi's Alissa Ankle is available online at the Mavi website.

#3 The Cosy

These light-washed jeans feature subtle love-worn tears and a relaxed cut. Pair it with a cosy knit for a homely, casual outfit this weekend, or dress it up with heels and a long coat for a sassy work outfit.

#4 The New Age

Anything that involves white clothing may have me running for the hills, but if you’re confident enough with your pasta-eating skills, Frame Denim’s ripped white stretch-denim jeans are easy to pair with (literally) anything. It’s white after all. Just don’t drop anything on them.  

Frame Denim's Le Skinny de Jeanne jeans are available online at the Net-A-Porter website.

#5 The Grey

H&M’s dark washed grey jeans give the denim a well-worn, cosy appeal. Pair it with your to-go leather jacket, ankle boots and a plain white top for a smart look that’s deceptively easy to throw together.

H&M's Slim Regular Ankle Jeans are available at the H&M's website.

#8 For The Party

These boyfriend-style jeans from Lee are laidback and sexy (aka every gals goddamn dream).
