Kelsea Ballerini in Parker Smith

If you haven’t noticed, jeans with rips placed strategically over the knees has been pretty hot this summer…especially the black varieties. However, there are plenty of other awesome washes in this style as well, as brands everywhere adopt this popular trend. Along with raw hems, this has been one of my favorites, and bloggers and celebrities everywhere are Instagramming it up wearing jeans with knee rips. Here is country singer Kelsea Ballerini in Parker Smith, wearing the Ava in Sky High. It is indeed a high rise jean, with a 9.25″ rise and an ankle-skimming cropped 26″ inseam. It features a truly lived-in, vintage inspired medium blue wash, with slight distressing throughout and as mentioned, two big not-quite-blasted-through rips over the knees. Rips like these are ready for additional customization by the wearer, as you can see on Kelsea! If you haven’t kept up with our numerous posts about Parker Smith, these jeans are so freaking soft…so soft that they will never feel constricting. They also were originally made to fit curvy bodies, so buy with confidence! You won’t be disappointed!

  1. Nothing new.
    I like the back view, though. No halo on the butt.
    This 26″ crop is really awkward. The model must be about 5’5″. Taller than that should just get a great pair of jeans and cut them off where you want them.
