While summer attire is fun and breezy, there’s just something about fall fashion that makes dressing for cooler weather even better. A closet staple for fall is denim — denim jackets, denim tops, denim pants, and the list goes on. When it comes to jeans, they can sometimes look all the same, which is why stars like Kerry Washington, Emma Roberts, and Khloe Kardashian have stepped out in frayed jeans or fringe bottom jeans. The detailed bottoms make for a head-turning look and the edgiest street style.
Kerry is one of our favorite style stars when it comes to fringe bottom jeans. 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 $171 at ifchic.com. 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 Kerry’s book and shop our top fringe denim picks, below:
