I think ripped jeans are great! Clean rips, messy rips, big rips, little rips, all kinds of rips! I don't believe everyone can pull of this look, so be sure you can if you do. From what I've seen, it works out the best when you cut various parallel lines, more or less the same length, don't exaggerate. Or really do exaggerate and make parallel close cuts all over the place! In this case it can be necessary to wear black tights underneath.
