Enter the Fray: Raw-Hem Looks We Love

April 18, 2019

A frayed hem adds instant edge to any outfit. We’ve been seeing a lot of raw hems lately, and we don’t think they’re going anywhere any time soon. Here are few ways to own the look and stand out from the rest.

SHORT & SWEET

Shorts were made for raw-edge hems. The first jean shorts invented were created by cutting off the legs on a pair of 501® Originals. It’s easy to DIY a pair at home — just follow our easy how-to guide.

Rather leave it to the experts? Our women’s 501® shorts and men’s cut-off shorts come with raw hems and never go out of style.

RAW EDGE & SELVEDGE

Our highest rise jeans yet, the Ribcage Straight Selvedge Jeans, are one of our favorite raw-hem looks for women this season. These universally flattering jeans feature an extra-large selvedge cuff at the ankle for a unique aesthetic. Wear them with a boxy, cropped shirt for fun head-to-toe outfit that plays with proportions.

RIPS & TEARS

For an alternative, lived-in look, opt for a pair of cropped, distressed jeans with frayed hems. With their versatile style, these jeans are easy to dress up or down. Keep it casual with a basic tee or elevate your look with boots and a moto jacket.

To get the look, follow our DIY guide to cropped jeans or check out our 501® Original Cropped Jeans with a cut-off hem.

PRINTS & PATTERNS

Make a statement with frayed hems and bold patterns. For an unforgettable look, wear your favorite raw-hem jeans with tropical or floral print shirts.

These are just a few ways to wear the frayed-hem trend. Show us how you wear them by tagging #LiveInLevis and @levis on Instagram.
