The tattered jeans

img_8553The history of ripped jeans, is the most organic of all clothing style origins.What is now considered a trend , was the complete opposite earlier on. Ripped jeans were simply a result of over-wearing. Prior to the 70’s they were associated with the less fortunate or working class who could not afford to part with their denim.


However, clothing played a huge role in self- expression in the 70’s. Some wore distress in their jeans with pride, or covered the holes with expressive patches. These distressed, patch wearing, bell bottom, jean-wearing, misfits not only protested for peace, but for our rights to wear extremely casual clothing. Thank you, hippies.

Our tropical  Kenyan weather makes it a perfect time to be casual and cool. The best way to bring out your striped shirt is with fun accessories and heels. Add some layers with a light army coat. I love crop tops because they tend to accentuate my upper torso.

I threw in my orange heels that I was gifted a few years back  by my sister, to bring in some colour to the look.

Wearing your hair up is also an added advantage, if you want more focus to go on your look and your face.img_8551

If the coat gets a little over bearing because of the heat, you could still hold it in your hand and still  look gorgeous doing so.img_8550
