Two Outfits, One Fringed Jean

Two Outfits, One Fringed Jean

I've been studying all the styles of distressed jeans including the fringed look. Actually, the fringed jean has been around for a few years and continues to be a fashion statement.

I chuckle when I see DIY instructions to fringe or make your jean edges ragged. So many steps! Baby Boomers would have cut the jeans and tossed them in the washer and dryer. We would  have then worked the fringe with our fingers while actually wearing the jeans. It was no big deal.

Fringed jeans are available in cropped, wide leg, boot cut, and skinny. Some have uneven edges; others have long fringes. The possibilities are endless.

I decided to keep this fashion statement simple, a boot cut jean that has minimal fringe and hovers just above my shoes. Now, what to wear? Do I go dressy or casual?

First pictures are a slightly dressy look, but I kept it on the casual side. Black tops always work with any type of jean.

My top is by Chico. It has a banded bottom, so I can wear it high near my waist or low on my hips. I chose to go low. I added a statement necklace and bracelet. Then I chose my bronze wedge shoes with a black and tan purse.

The shoes add some height and a little bling to my ragged edged jeans.

Let's go more casual:

I decided on a white tank with a long cardigan sweater. The sweater is from Old Navy, a great fall piece.  I added a long necklace, a belt or not, large bag, and the piece of resistance: my animal print sandals.

If you're going to go with a fringed edge or distressed jeans, have fun with your accessories, especially shoes. I could have worn heels, or a cap toe shoe for a change up. When the weather gets cooler, maybe short booties.

Well, there you have it. The fringed look is here for a while longer, so you might as well have some fun with it. Perhaps, it's not your look. Remember, you decide what's your style.

Have a wonderful weekend, Folks :)
