Cropped Frayed Hem Jeans. They are casual, versatile, hipster and chic and can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. This style has been around for quite some time, but is feeling on trend at the moment, especially when paired with strappy heels or ankle boots. Whether you are going out on a weekend or putting together a work-appropriate look, you can easily put cropped frayed hem jeans in your wardrobe rotation.
I love the notion of ‘high-low hem’ or ‘mullet’ hem as translated in a pair of jeans. Mother Denim’s Insider Crop Step Fray comes in black and white denim, as well as a few versatile shades of blue. Mother Denim is known for their flattering fits and this pair is no exception. Seen on celebrities like Emma Roberts, this pair has a high waist that gives it a vintage feel.
While the fray is only needed on the hem of your jeans, you can get away with some additional distress as seen in this pair above. Somehow these ripped and frayed cropped flares look dressed up when paired with white Kirkwood pumps and a color-block sweater. The hem of the white button down blouse peaking out adds some structure to this look. Achieve a similar look with the Jodi by AG Jeans.
When it comes to cropped denim, the wider the leg the better! These ones also give the illusion of a wide cuff. Achieve your inner rebel muse by adding a pair of black ankle booties. Similar style by Rachel Comey. Also available in black.
Why not wear this style for work? If you keep the rest of your look professional, a bit of fray can add some edge to your outfit. Keep the denim wash darker, like with this pair by Frame. Add ladylike pumps or booties and sophisticated accessories to round out the look.
