We have seen ripped knits a lot. The thing about them is that you can style them either in a casual way or a more refined one. This outfit could be the "refined" one, because of the skirt mostly. It is pretty nice and elegant so when we mix it with the knit we get a look that is not elegant and not casual, it is one in between. You can try doing this type of mixture with many different pieces, you should try sometime I think the result was nice.
