As new styles are being advertised to stock up on for the fall season, a pattern emerges as frayed denim is being popularized beyond your typical cutoff shorts. Shirts, dresses, and cropped pants are embracing the fray as designers work with it like a typical embellishment, manipulated into something unique and beautiful. Want to get in on this trend? So do we.
If style star Pandora Sykes wears it, we want it. Something about the trend being denim makes it feel ultra-wearable, and like it will easily translate from day to night, casual to professional.
The frayed crop top.
Here from Nastygal. I have mixed feelings about the hi-lo hem returning to popularity, but love the fray. What are you going to do?
There's a less-intense and more wearable version of the style here at Forever21, and a more demure version of the style here from Zara.
The frayed tunic dress.
Find subtle versions of this style here from ASOS, and here from Zara. A sleeveless version here by Forever21, just begging to be layered over leather leggings, under a chunky sweater.
The frayed skirt.
Find a mid-length version here at Zara, a shorter version here also at Zara, and a pencil skirt with a frayed hem by Blank NYC here at Shopbop.
The cropped and frayed pants.
Find them here at Forever21, or a more dramatic (albeit expensive) pair here by Vale at Shopbop, or try this crazy cool pair with an uneven frayed hem from Zara.
From tunics to cropped everything, this style is just begging to be layered come fall!
