Frayed at the Hem

Frayed at the Hem

Trends lately are the trends that have come and gone and are now back again. Say that three times.

Every now and then, designers up the anti on reinventing the jean, and these days, the fashion moment taking the world by storm is the frayed hem denim pant leg. That’s right…fringe hem, raw hem, undone hem, frayed hem, released hem. It’s the late 90s and early 2000s fad that ripped through the pages of every magazine and like we said, it’s back again.

These raw hem edged pants have infiltrated every fashion darling’s wardrobe, and it’s not in the D.I.Y. way we remember. Fashion designers are selling these ultra chic jeans already ripped! The undone hem adds either a slightly frayed or sizeable fringed detail that skims the ankle of a cropped or uncropped jean.

Frayed hem fever is everywhere and has assumed the role of catapulting jeans to the next fashion level. It’s always refreshing to see an updated, subtle twist on a classic wardrobe staple.

Three trends in one! Rock a raw hem, leg-lengthening high-waist flare jean for the ultimate stylish expression.


Nothing beats a classic white tee, relaxed jeans, and sneaker ensemble. The distressed, ripped wholes coupled with an undone hem modernizes the look to keep up with the current denim movement.


Jeans can be fancy too. Spruce up your denim with sky-high heels, a sleek purse, and an ontrend top. The stringy trim adds a splash of edge to a classic, mature look, and we’re digging it.
