Denim Style To Try Now

2014 Adam Katz Sinding

Move over distressed denim, there is a new crop of styles making a serious sartorial impact thanks to artfully frayed details on waistbands, sleeves and hemlines. Seen all over the fashion flock outside shows in New York, London and Milan, the polished denim takes a more delicate approach to the look as opposed to the in-your-face rips and tears of seasons past. Here are a few great pieces to add to your arsenal.

Get The Style For Fall


Marques Alamedia Denim Trench, $492

Polished enough for week days, try topping cropped black pants and a button down with this trench and finish with a red purse.

Shift Dress

Current/Elliott Shift Denim Dress, $238

Keep the '60s alive by wearing this denim shift over a black turtleneck and block-heeled ankle boots.

Long-Sleeved Top

Aries Frayed Edge Denim Top, $263

This assymetrical hemline flashes a little skin so if you want to go a more modest route wear a high-waisted skirt or pair of trousers. For an office-appropriate look, team with wide-leg white pants and nude pumps.

Pencil Skirt

Denimocracy Pencil Skirt, $165

We love this unique interpretation of a denim skirt. The frayed detail and light wash keep the pencil silhouette from feeling stuffy.


J. Brand Photo Ready Cropped Jeans, $227

Add stilettos to draw attention to the frayed hem of this ankle-grazing style.

Midi Skirt

Band of Outsiders Ruffle Front Skirt, $495

A great alternative to a printed midi skirt, this iteration looks great with a striped bateau tee and plimsolls.
