Real Mom Style: Raw Hemmed Jeans

Raw Hemmed Jeans!

Have you seen them? Do you like them? What are your thoughts? My first thought was, “those would be perfect for gals that are a bit shorter, I can cut all the jeans off that are too long and they’ll still be on trend.” I haven’t gone that far yet, but it’s a thought. I recently purchased my third pair of raw hemmed jeans and with how they’re appearing all over, they’re an easy and fun add to your wardrobe, especially if you like to mix up your jean collection.

I had some great conversations over on Instagram about raw hemmed jeans earlier this week & it was split right down the middle as to who liked them & who was ready to purchase/has purchased already. Either people didn’t like them at all, or they were nervous it would look as though they were trying too hard. Let me just say, if you don’t like them, that’s just fine because we all have different tastes and styles, but if you think you’re trying too hard, knock that out of your mind. If someone thinks you’re “trying too hard” then that’s their own problem. Love it, own it and rock on!

This week I wore my most recent purchased raw hemmed jeans and of course they come from one of my favorite jeans brand, Blank Denim NYC. You can grab these from various places, but I purchase through ShopBop.

I like these because they’re more of an ankle jean, with minimal distressing and a lighter color, which is perfect for spring. The raw edge is a bit longer in the back then the front and then as you can see, the front has two raw edges, giving them a unique and edgy look. These raw hemmed jeans also fit perfectly on my hips and have the perfect amount of stretch for all day comfort.

I wore this look for Mass this past Wednesday and then a busy day of running errands and grocery shopping with the two littles. I felt pulled together, comfortable and casual for an ordinary everyday.

If you’re looking to snag some raw hemmed jeans for spring, here are a few that other ladies I know love – the AE and Old Navy ones and then the ones I’m featuring and another pair from Blank Denim that would be perfect for spring.


Don’t just take my word on how great these raw hemmed jeans are. Ellen at That Chic Mom is wearing the same pair I am and she always looks super cute in them
