When you think classy and sophisticated, we're sure denim isn't exactly the first thing that pops into your mind, let alone a pair of distressed jeans. But we say that cool, casual ripped jeans can be sophisticated, too! Read on as we share with you styling tricks you can do to make your distressed jeans look sophisticated enough to wear to dinner.

Choose a dressy top!

Because a pair of distressed jeans can look extremely casual, wear it with a dressy top to make your outfit look more refined. Drape an edgy leather jacket over one of your shoulders for brownie points.

Stick to a neutral palette.

Opt for a pair of distressed jeans in white instead of rugged denim or edgy black. Stick to a neutral palette when it comes to your top and your accessories to keep the OOTD clean and sleek.

End the look with strappy stilettos.

To balance the casualness of the ripped jeans, swap your favorite flats for a pair of strappy stilettos instead.

Excessorize!

While you can count on a pair of dressy heels to make your outfit look sophisticated, it doesn't mean that you can't wear a pair of sneaks anymore. Pair your distressed jeans with a cool pair of sneakers and play with accessories. From a trendy hat to a cool scarf, you can always count on some accessories to turn your casual OOTD into a sophisticated one in a snap!
