I started with this long jeans, ripped at the backside. It is also a little bit too small for me now.

Shorten it, fix the hole, then make it wider.

Outfit - Classic plaid shirt + black shirt, jeans and boots

Tried combination with a new shirt, which is open in the back.  I'd call it a dark, grunge outfit yet classy enough for everyday wear, haha. 
Black shirt: from RE-BELLO (italian company producing fair, organic clothes), bought at Wearfair 2016 (in Austria). It is open in the back and has a very loose fit.  Plaid shirt: classic, nothing special, I think from VERO MODA.  Jeans: also nothing special, old, cheap ones from orsay.  Shoes: cheap and quite some years old, they are from Deichmann.  Necklace: honestly don't remember, some junk jewelry.  Lips: 4LK Lipstick pure red Hairstyle: nice and sleek haha - nooo that's not greasy ;-D
