The Luxe For Less: 10 Drool-worthy Frayed Denim Looks

 

As fashion week moves swiftly on to Gay Paris, our eyes are still on the street style!

If street style was a magazine, denim yet again made the cover, but this time, it had more of an undone vibe. Cue my latest obsession: frayed denim.

Ahhh....Marques Almeida, you have seriously made us want to take a pair of scissors to our fave denim pieces and just hack away! 

But just before you pick up those scissors, listen up! A good pair of jeans is like a best mate, they are always there for you and are an instant pick up, so why cut em up? Do your old trusties a favor and invest in some frayed denim pieces.

Here's my Marques Almeida lust list **drools**: 


If you're wallet is feeling lighter than Donald Trump's brain, fear not! I am back with a brand new rap my luxe for less series and have been bargain-hunting away to find these street style-inspired pieces just for you!

So get ready for ten street style frayed denim looks I can't stop lusting over and my budget-friendly options! Your wallet will thank me!

1.The Top Of The Game

Who cares about the rest of the outfit when the top makes you literally collapse into a pile of your own drool? With romantic ruffles juxtaposed with raw, chunky denim, we are left with that 'undone beauty' that was so popular on the A/W 2016-17 catwalks.

2. The Cold Shoulder

This is the perfect transition look for those entering Spring! A long-sleeved off the shoulder shirt has just enough coverage, whilst these wide-leg frayed culottes have some serious 70s styling power!

3. Doubled Up

If you want to stick with your old trusties down below, why not mix it up up top with a frayed hem tank top? Go for an over-sized, crop fit for that chic, hobo look. Keep the shoes and accessories polished and feminine and watch heads turn at your effortless look!

4. Neon Pop

If you're climate is still a little chilly, layer a frayed denim dress over a neon or bright coloured knit. Who knew hacked out shoulders could look so darn good?

 5. Feelin' Skirty

Simple and sophisticated always works and Jessica Stein has proved this with this classic blue shirt and distressed blue skirt. I love a good oxymoron, and I don't think juxtapositions get any better than ripped denim and a Chanel boy bag!

 6. Summer Uniform

If I had to remain in one outfit for a month, it would be this! This multi-hued, double-frayed-denim extravaganza is made for tanned legs and sandy toes. Wear with beach waves and coconut scented sun screen.

7. Riviera

Feeling shy about this trend? Opt for a top with only one frayed hem for a more polished vibe. Add a patent black bag, dark jeans and a neck scarf for the perfect Paris Fashion Week look.

8. Frays N' Mules

Go for a frayed jean that falls at the lower calf. Half-mast-Harry's are officially in and what better way to show off your shoes? Mules are the perfect pairing for this trend.

9. The Basic

With every trend, there is that piece that can be dressed up or down for every occasion and this dress is certainly that! Add some sex appeal with sky high heels or go boho chic with chunky jewellery and gladiator sandals.

10. Patchwork

If you're the dare devil of fashion, why not take a bungee jump in a patchwork frayed number? This fashionista has made hers even more quirkier by layering over a white shirt and teaming with sporty kicks.

  11. I would probably skip this trend, even though some of these are pretty, I don't think I'd pull off. 5, 8 and 9 are more wearable for me :) xx
