Fashion Trends

Le Fray.

UPDATE: I just announced (as of 9:45 AM CST!) a winner for these adorbs Baublebar earrings in the white color on Instastory!  Check it out!

I know I relatively recently talked about my obsession with raw hem denim, so it should come as no surprise that I’ve been gravitating towards other pieces with a frayed aesthetic, too.

{Y’all is cool.}

I’m primarily smitten with this Ulla Johnson dip-dye fray-hem dress ($345), which would be perfection with a pair of of-the-moment slides (like those Loeffler Randalls I died over recently).

I had to do a quadruple take when I found this adorable lookalike style from Anthro for $138!!!  #Youwillbemine.

At the higher end of the spectrum, new-to-me designer Marques Almeida has some AMAZING pieces, all with frayed edges, like this top ($510), which somehow looks ladylike despite the denim + fray situation.

These Jeffrey Campbell sandals ($145!!!) also turned my head.  What an amazing way to spice up a simple LWD, like this $75 stunner (currently at the top of my lust list).

I’m also into this frayed denim dress (Chloe, on sale for $525).  Get the look for less with this Madewell find or this Current/Elliott style.  I’d pair this with some refined bow-topped mules from hot new line No. 21 ($559).  P.S.: are you sensing a #microtrend here?  Those Brother Vellies bow-topped sandals I showcased under pick #2 here are definitely in a trendy zone right now.

And, speaking of shoes, these canvas frayed-edge Schutz heeled sandals ($190) make my heart explode.  Love the neutral color and the ankle buckle.  They’d go with EVERYTHING in your summer wardrobe.

+Or, why not combine my new obsession (bow-topped mules — check out hip new line Brother Vellies covered here in pick no. 2) with the frayed look in the form of these $100 slides?!

Also — a different kind of fray — but I really love the look of these Preston + Olivia frayed hats ($205) for the beach this summer.  Tres chic, ca.  You can also get the look for less with this $54 Michael Stars style.

+This blush frayed top is around $100 and nails the look.

+Love this frayed denim top from Anthro ($88).

+Ooo, these cool platformed espadrilles ($190)!  Also comes in a flat version ($175).

+NOT frayed, but I love this denim dress with its dramatic bell sleeves (on sale for $117).  P.S., more bell sleeved goodness here.
