20 Deconstructed Denim Fashions

From Intentionally Ripped Trousers to Layered Canadian Tuxedos

— May 15, 2015 — Fashion
These deconstructed denim fashions range from intentionally ripped trousers to layered separates that are inspired by the Canadian Tuxedo. Deconstructed denim has been around for years and is a staple of the 80s and 90s. Making their return into the fashion spotlight, distressed jackets and ripped jeans are an homage to the past and are a favorite among today's edgy youth.

When it comes to modern versions of deconstructed denim, looking effortlessly cool is easy when sporting jeans with a vintage wash or ripped detailing. Whether drawing inspiration from 80s glam rock or 90s grunge, these examples are a fresh translation of retro fashion references.

In addition to the past, these styles also look to the future and include garments that are more sculptural and experimental in their design aesthetic.
