12 Frayed Denim Pieces You Need in Your Wardrobe for Spring

Frayed DenimRemember in the 2000′s when it was considered the definition of cool to not hem your jeans so they would get all scraggly as you walked around? You might cringe at the thought now, but do not discount frayed denim completely because it is back. It appeared in numerous Spring 2016 shows at Fashion Month. However, note that the frayed denim pieces available to buy now are not the same as your jeans with the five-inch long denim tails covered in mud. They are more polished and less dirty. If you want something different than jeans, there are lots of other options to try.
