The fash pack might have resorted to super furry animal coats and a couple extra layers to cope with the icelandic temperatures over at New York Fashion Week, but they are willing to pick up some goose-pimples for a statement knee flash.

One of the biggest trends to emerge on the sidewalk is exposed knees. This goes from the Karolina Kurkova gentle slash to colossal gaping holes. So how ripped would YOU go?

Diesel Black gold, shredded baggy stretch denim - £321

Boohoo, Rhonda Extreme Wash Open Knee Boyfriend Jeans - £25

Paige Denim, Jimmy Jimmy mid-rise cropped girlfriend jeans - £285

Current/Elliot, the boyfriend cropped mid-rise jean - £260

J Brand, Mercy skinny mid-rise jeans - £255

Rag & Bone, Distressed cropped boyfriend jeans - £235

A number of denim brands, from Current/Elliot to Paige, will destroy your jeans for you. Just remember the rips will get bigger and bigger as you wear (and wash) them. If you don't want to buy something destroyed, you can alternatively invest in a pair of scissors. When it comes to shredding your denim, go for a thick jean and don't be scared to rip. Shini from Park & Cube has some excellent tips for shredding your denim, as she gives a step by step guide to getting ripped.
