Rising Hemlines

Slim & Frayed-

The best way to stay on trend is to remember that the style is to wear your jeans above your ankles so when you wear your ankle boots, you should still see some skin like in the photos below. We know this might be tough to try at first when you feel like you're wearing "high-waters," but once you master the look and realize that you can wear any shoe in your closet with jeans now, you'll quickly fall in love. Another way to "raise" the denim style bar is to try fun alternatives like a cropped flare or step hem. Check out how these cropped styles that are either here or arriving soon! 


We always love a skinny ankle style and these new Articles of Society frayed edge denim give a cleaner way to distress your denim. Plus, it's easy to see how thy look great with boots or sneakers. This seasonless trend will carry you through your next denim update and you that effortless street style you everywhere on Instagram. And at the great pice points, you can not lose sleep over trying a new trend! 

*TIP- If you haven't found the perfect ankle length, roll your skinnies once or twice to get the right look! If your thinking you have roll a third time- don't do it!  Keep the look slim with two cuffs or cut your jeans and try to get your own fray going.
