If there is one thing that is big this season, it’s denim. Even though it was never really out of fashion, denim is making a comeback, with pieces like denim dresses, skirts and playsuits (I’m actually wearing a denim playsuit right now as I type this!) being the key pieces for summer. What is even bigger, however, is raw edge denim. I’ve been a big fan since I got my hands on this raw edge denim skirt from ASOS (worn in this outfit post), and now that I’ve also got this Zulu & Zephyr frayed edge top, I’m damn right obsessed.
Frayed denim also looks amazing with another key trend for the season: suede button up skirts. The button up skirt has been popping up all over the place (also in denim!), and the two tones of this suede skirt from ASOS with the denim of this top is a match made in boho heaven, if you ask me.
I wore this outfit on one of our last days in New York, spent aimlessly wandering around the city without many plans at all. I think it worked well with the casual Stan Smith sneakers, however this outfit easily transitioned to something dressier by adding a pair of tan heels to match my GiGi New York crossbody – I really should start using a different bag but I’m obsessed!
I’ve picked out a few of my favourite raw edge denim pieces available at the moment (ASOS has a really good range) below, and as you can see, there is a lot out there!
