My current obsession is the destroyed look.  I’ve loved it all summer on jeans and t-shirts –in my opinion, the more trashed and hole ridden the better.   Lately though, I find that I’m loving the look even more on sweaters!  Give me a sweater with frayed edges or intentional ‘runs’ down the body and I’m in heaven.  Designers like Raquel Allegra, R13 and 3.1 Phillip Lim have taken the destroyed sweaters to a new level, their garments are truly pieces of art with intentionally placed holes, runs and shredding.

Not ready for a totally destroyed garment?  Why not try something simple to start with like a raw edge t-shirt or lightly destroyed jeans.   Dress it down by pairing with another distressed piece, or dress it up with heels and more polished accessories.  Either way the look is totally carefree and modern.
