How do you feel about ripped jeans for kids? They seem to be on-trend right now, with more and more stylish moms who love to dress casual adding a pair of cool, ripped jeans to their kids’ wardrobes. Check out what other moms think about this trend and how to style them for your own laid-back kids.

Ripped jeans for kids… Yes or no?

When it comes to ripped jeans for kids, moms are on the fence… some think they’re super cool and stylish, while others are certain they’re only for playtime.

“My kids wear ripped jeans, but only because they’ve been worn-out so much that they’ve rubbed through the knees and now they’re ripped!” shares Ana. “We keep those for outside play.”

A mom of all boys agrees, telling us, “I just can’t get myself on board with this trend. I have such a hard time keeping my boys from getting holes and rips in their jeans as it is that I can’t imagine actually buying them worn-out in the first place.”

On the other hand, there are moms who are loving ripped jeans for kids… and for themselves! “I love my super-soft, worn-in, vintage-style jeans and I love when my kids wear them too.”

“My kids wear uniforms to school, so dressing casual on the weekends is a treat for them. My girls’ favorite jeans are ones that have rips and little holes in them. It’s their style and I don’t really mind.”

Where to get them

While you can easily pick-up a pair of ripped jeans at your favorite everyday store right now, there are a few shops that are also making custom ripped jeans for kids that take this trend to an entirely new level of style. Check out Susie’s Custom (Instagram: @SusiesCustom) for some of our personal favorites… but be sure to add yourself to their mailing list and follow on Instagram to get updates on when they’re taking new orders. These ripped jeans for kids go quick!

  1. I love these ripped jeans – and hey it helps make the jeans that already “accidentally” have holes in them look cool and still wearable! And, bring on the hand me down jeans! 😉
