The Denim Directory
Raw Cut

Delving into the details this season, denim gets the raw cut treatment as we focus on released hems and frayed edges. Across all our favourite leg shapes, frayed hems come in varying degrees from a subtle raw hem to heavy fringing. We highlight the key jeans for spring and the best way to wear this trend now.

A high-rise cigarette fit that's cropped just above the ankle, Ruby is one of J Brand's newest styles. This pair comes in our favourite indigo blue wash for spring, Lovesick, which is made from comfort stretch denim. Cool raw hems take denim back to its off-duty roots but we think this 'do-it-all' jean looks great dressed up or down.

The best part of the raw hem trend is that everyone can wear it, because it's not limited to one fit or brand. You'll find frayed, raw hem jeans available in just about every style from skinny jeans, like AG’s classic Prima, to this year's must have straight leg jeans and even bootcuts and flares.

If you've never tried Citizens of Humanity jeans before, now is the time. Their Drew high-rise fray is the must-have silhouette of the season as far as we're concerned. Here a feminine, crossover kick flare offers cool contrast to a tomboyish silhouette that sits high on the waist and crops at the ankle. We're styling this black wash with cashmere knits jumpers and Iro jackets.

It is possible to look both on-trend and polished in raw hem denim. Simply add a pretty blouse and heels to a pair of fashionable, frayed hem jeans and you've got the perfect outfit when you want to look pulled together for denim-friendly days at the office. Case in point: AG's new Isabelle looks effortless paired with Vince blouses.

J Brand’s bestselling Selena has had a makeover. With a frayed and slit hem, the Selena’s bootcut silhouette is further exaggerated, making for a major fashion statement. In striking white denim, we suggest elevating this pair by wearing with a neutral palette of nudes and greys.

Also available in black and photoready bluebird, the Selena works equally well for those off-duty days. Style her with a mac and easy button-down shirt on the weekend this spring when you want to look stylish but still maintain a low-key, casual vibe. Trainers will help show off her cropped length.
