The frayed hem is a popular trend right now and one brand that will carry on the style into the new season is MOTHER Denim. I would say they were my highlight when I visited MOTHER to see the new collection. The style is so well thought out and the cut along with the array of washes they come in is amazing. I couldn’t wait to do a post on them and you can see how I styled The Looker Ankle Fray in Guilty as Sin below.
This style just gives an edgy vibe with the frayed detailing and the distressed knee, so doing a monochromatic biker inspired look was a given. I chose to pair them with an R13 leather jacket to add even more of a tough vibe to the concept. I then kept everything else pretty classic with some Margiela boots and a simple black t shirt by TOPSHOP, but wanted to add a chic sense with this 3.1 Phillip Lim bag. It feels like an unexpected pairing with the look, yet feels right because of the embossing of the leather.
With the distressing, the pair can also go on the casual side very easily. My first thought of a shoe pairing when I saw them was chukkas. It may be due to how I would wear them myself, which is with a similar pair like these Common Projects. I then didn’t want to stray from the easiness too far, so I chose this graphic t shirt by TOPSHOP and backpack by Opening Ceremony. A graphic t shirt and distressed jeans just go hand-in-hand. Though simple, I find a little jewelry like this Cartier bracelet gives the look just the right amount of elevation to bring it all together.
I haven’t done a look with heels in quite a while and decided to do at least one as you can dress these up as well. You can’t go wrong pairing any pair of denim with suede shoes. Both wear into something so magical that only they can achieve. I chose this pair by Stuart Weitzman because they are so classic and are a great subtle contrast to the jeans. As the weather is warm, I thought another look with a t shirt would be redundant, so I chose this camisole by TOPSHOP. I opted for this Haider Ackermann bomber jacket (get a similar one here) for a color contrast and being that the first look was all black. The Ray-Ban wayfarers are the finishing touch as you cannot go wrong with them and they just make any look feel cooler.
The lovely Kate Walsh was snapped while out and about in Los Angeles, California last week. She seemed to be in good spirits as the paps got shots of her.
Kate was wearing a double denim outfit for the day, pairing her Mother The Dropout with a similar washed denim shirt. We don’t often see this type of look with the pairing of these shoes, but I think the denim on denim is fantastic! Buy Mother online at Shopbop.com.

Heidi Klum was spotted dropping by the grocery store in Los Angeles, California. The supermodel wore a pair of the MOTHER Denim The Looker Skinny in Graffiti Girl with a printed yellow t shirt and some gold Birkenstocks.
I don’t think there has ever been a pair that has looked bad on Heidi. We have been catching her more frequently and in a variety of cuts, which I enjoy a lot as we usually catch people exclusively in skinny. On another note…I just noticed that Heidi removed her tattoo on her arm. I always thought that it was a great one because it was so well designed.

Cara Delevingne was caught during a stroll through New York City. The model/actress wore a pair of MOTHER Denim Short Short Fray in Graffiti Girl with her signature shirt with saying and some Chanel sneakers.
It’s a nice sighting to get of Cara in some shorts as we mostly see her in skinny jeans. As she is usually based in London, I can see why she mostly sticks to longer styles. I hope to see her in more shorts as I am interested in seeing how else she would style them. You can click here to purchase MOTHER from SHOPBOP.
