As much as I adore my dark flare jeans and skinnies, with a new season, comes new denim!
Flares, culottes, and destroyed denim are holding strong for SS16, with released, frayed hems, and kick flare crops becoming mainstream.
You may recall, I purchased mine back in July 2015, at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
(note for sizing reference, I purchased these in my regular size 27)
A new trend at the time, I had to play around with them quite a bit, to figure out how to style them. I have owned straight leg jeans in the past, but never a cropped pair, and definitely not a pair with a released hem.
Since last summer, we have become great friends.
I have found, next to my Citizens ‘Emerson’ boyfriend jean, this pair has become my go-to.
Previously, if you wanted a pair, it was a bit hard to track one down. Now, this style can be found everywhere from Tory Burch to Target, in petite (TopShop) to Plus Size (See Below) – at every price!
For me, the $135.00 I paid, during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, has been worth every penny! I have now worn this jean, through all 4 seasons, which makes it a real winner!
with flip flops and a breezy tank.
with espadrilles and off the shoulder top.
Paired with ballet flats and a cozy mohair sweater,
booties and long cardigan.
block heel loafers and fringe poncho.
Lace-up booties and printed boho blouse,
short booties and aztec jacquard cardigan (details, on this exact outfit, can be found in HERE, in a recent AskSuzanneBell What I Wore Outfit Post)
I love shoes, therefore a pant leg that shows off my shoes, is always a winner in my book!

Have any of you picked up a pair of released hem jeans?
Release hems can be found on many styles, but I find the straight leg is the easiest in terms of styling.
Here’s a post I came across, for DIY released hem, HERE
