Denim Devotion

If you’re anything like me, you probably own more than a few pairs of jeans. Skinnies and flares, distressed and boyfriend, high waisted and low slung. Just when you think you’ve got every possible trend covered, along comes another take on the denim staple. Enter the staggered, or step-hemmed, raw-edged cropped jean. We first started seeing this denim incarnation a couple of years ago and now it seems everyone and their mother has adopted the trend. In fact, the brand Mother seems to be cornering the cool-girl market with fans including Miranda Kerr and Gigi and Bella Hadid wearing their ankle baring, frayed pants all over the globe. But they’re not the only brand jumping into the fray. Here I’m wearing a stellar option from Frame. I’ve paired mine with a mustard yellow pseudo-varsity sweater (a gift I received from ModCloth after a fun shared TV moment), and a spring-ready ankle boot from Jerome C. Rousseau. A word to the wise, this denim shape, especially if it has a little flare, could make you look inches shorter, so proceed with caution. But do slip into a favorite pair of blues, whether new or old, ’cause there’s nothing better.

With love,
