How is it possible for a frayed hem to look chic? I spent my childhood avoiding it (because in the 80s we either cuffed our jeans or had the hem sewn), and now I’m wearing them with heels. Who knew? It’s kind of like the poncho trend. Oh, and the gaucho one. Reliving my youth one garment at a time.
Either way, I’m loving this trend. If shredded up boyfriend jeans are not your thing or if you’re not sure how you feel about your knees being exposed, go for a frayed hem. It’s a fresh take on ripped jeans without totally committing to that look but still allowing yourself to have fun with denim. I picked a few you might like!
