When it comes to denim we’re always looking to update our arsenal, which is why we’re loving the resurgence of frayed-hem jeans. Adorning everything from cropped flares to sleek skinnies, this jean-ius upgrade boasts its distressed touches along the ankle for a more subtle dose of cool. Wear these picks with a button up blouse, blazer and ladylike pumps for the office or sleek sneakers and an oversized sweater for the weekend.
