The latest clothing trend is destruction or deconstructed clothing, which is basically good clothing that is torn, tattered, and patched in ways that make it look used and old. On the surface this sounds pretty stupid, I mean who wants to wear clothing that’s already basically destroyed, but then again how many of us have worn jeans with holes in them?

The new tattered clothing goes a bit further than distressed jeans by including tattered tops and shredded dresses as well.

The bad news is designers are still asking top dollar for destroyed designer threads (and in some cases it seems like there’s only threads left). But the good news is that with a seam ripper, a pair of scissors and a brick you can probably achieve many of these shredded looks at home, sort of a DIY clothing destruction project.

Although they say the economy is on the rise and things are getting better it seems as though clothing is getting worse. Is this a counter reaction to the economy or a direct response by dressing everyone in shreds? It’s hard to tell as the masses are still feeling a huge economic burden but the wealthier citizens are seeing an upswing. Either way this trend is hot with both the wealthy and the wishing-to-be-wealthy. So if you’ve got money then buy your deconstructed clothing and if you don’t have the funds, start shredding your own stuff.
