Gone are the days of traditional blue denim, as the jean scene has undergone a much-needed makeover. From cut-off and frayed, to distressed and flared, today’s women’s jeans are anything but ordinary. As we enter fall (aka denim season), we couldn’t be more thrilled about the different denim trends that are hitting store shelves. This season, we’re most excited about the unraveled, raw hem as it truly takes denim to the next level.
This trend looks best cropped at the ankle and works as a skinny or wide leg cut. And the best part is, if you don’t feel like dishing out your hard earned money for a new pair of jeans this fall, you can DIY your own pair by cutting and fraying the hem of a pair of jeans you already own with a pair of scissors.
But most importantly, we’ve fallen for this denim trend because it can easily be dressed up or worn casually and is perfect for both the office and for après work cocktails.
Here are our favourite ways to style this swoon-worthy trend this season.
