Springtime means that it’s not too cold, and not too hot. It’s the perfect time to break out the more “fun” pieces in your closet without worrying about functionality/temperature. Fringe-bottom jeans falls under this category, and we wanted to show you fringe jeans as fun as the pair Rihanna is seen wearing below!

Fringe-bottom jeans have also been worn by stars like Kerry Washington, Emma Roberts, and Khloe Kardashian. The detailed bottoms make for a head-turning look and the edgiest street style. Just take a look at Kerry’s stylish outfit below, for example! The Scandal alum once stepped out in a pair of cool 3×1 WM3 Straight Crop Fringe Jeans. The hipster-style pants retail for an estimated $295, but they’re on sale for $103 at Fringe-bottom jeans have the perfect cut that allows for a statement shoe — just as Kerry did with her look. She paired her jeans with multicolored, open-toe sandals. In addition to her statement shoe, the actress donned a black tank and an effortless ponytail

With fringe jeans, there’s no need for an embellished or flashy top. Take a page out of Rihanna and Kerry’s style books and shop our top fringe denim picks, below:

1. Low-Rise Fringe Jeans

For low-rise fringe jeans like Rihanna’s, take a look at this Y2K-inspired pair with fringe detailing at the bottom. Now that we’ve been riding the high-waisted tide of jeans for a while, people are dipping their toes back into the pond of their low-rise predecessors. One Amazon customer gushed that they “love the retro look” of these jeans, while another noted that these unique pants “look amazing” and “fits perfect!!” $20,

2. Urban Outfitters’ BDG Wilco Destroyed High-Waisted Cropped Flare Jean

Don’t want your fringe jeans to have too extreme of a flare? Or, perhaps, you are you looking for a high-waisted fit. We predicted some shoppers might, which is why we included Urban Outfitters’ high-rise jeans that are a perfect blend of ’70s influences (distressed detailing, flare legs, faded blue denim) with modern style (AKA, the slenderizing silhouette). $69,

3. Universal Thread High-Rise Vintage Straight Cropped Jeans

Fringe looks just as good on a pair of classic mom jeans. The rough edges of the cuffs gives these pants that desirable vintage look, and will also feel like a great find from the thrift store since the jeans are “engineered with a heavier weight fabric for a broken-in feel,” according to the product’s page on Target. The wide-legged fit of these jeans will pair perfectly with a loose tee for a breezy spring day. $30,
