We haven't been able to get raw-edge denim out of our minds since we called out the trend last September. And, fortunately for us, the fringed look just made its way into stores. Rejoice! Because, really, there’s something so unexpectedly cool about how a little wear and tear can actually breathe new life into those denim mainstays.
Still, we also understand how hard it can be to give up your clean styles in favor of pieces that look like you just had a date with Edward Scissorhands. But, trust us on this one: You can pull off shredding — as long as the amount of distressing suits your personal taste. If you normally lean toward classic silhouettes, go for a skirt or jacket with a few slight rips. Slightly more high-concept? Unleash your inner rocker with excess slitting.
And, to help you find the perfect pieces that fit you, we culled 11 raw-edge finds that will instantly refresh your denim game. From jeans to shorts (you know, to prep for spring) to jackets to vests, these picks will 100% tear it up this season.
