How to Rip and Score Your Jeans

Pinterest is often a place I look for inspiration, at the same time as trying not to become depressed with the hoards of skinny bodies I would LOVE to emulate. Summer fashion boards led me to grow a love for ripped or scored jeans, they look amazing with your favourite pair of stilettos and a giant clutch, or dresses down with some ballet pumps and a strappy top. 

How to Score Your Jeans 

1. Start by wearing your jeans and marking out the parts you want to be ripped.
2. Make two horizontal cuts which mark the bottom and the top of the rip
3. pull threads downwards one by one at the bottom of your second rip and you should begin to see a scoring pattern
4. Once all the threads are pulled you should end up with a number of white horizontal threads. Repeat in other areas of your jeans if desired.

Beautiful Bodysuits

No faux pas wardrobe is complete without a snazzy bodysuit, and whether you are opting for sultry evening wear, or looking for a top to wear with jeans, bodysuits are the way forward.  

Celeb inspiration comes from the wonderful Katy Perry, who wore a candy themed bodysuit complete with multicoloured swirls around the bust- eye-catching! Kate Moss went racy in a nude bodysuit with embellishments covering her assets, and a white ring-leader blazer for a (slightly) more conservative look.Leigh-Anne Pinnock of Little Mix grunged her sheer panelled bodysuit with leather-look hotpants, a chunky chain and a striking red bomber jacket. Jennifer Lawrence kept it classy with a fabulous slate sheer gown with a plain black sleeveless bodysuit. 

Bodysuits provide a sexy, fitted alternative to an evening top, the quirkier the better!
