One of the trends that seems to be really popular is the undone (or released) hem on jeans and denim shirts. What I really love about the undone hem is that it reveals the different wash tones and folding marks of the original hem. It creates a sort of striped patterned detail that is attractive to the eye. I have three different pairs of jeans with undone hems and I love to mix and match them with denim tops to create a contrast of washes. The brand Current Elliott has multiple denim items with undone hems. I bought two pairs from them, one of them pictured here. I matched with a denim top, also with an undone hem, for a monochromatic outfit. The top is from Madewell, one of my favorite stores to buy shirts. Recently, they had a sale and as usual, I couldn’t resist the splurge.
