It’s a fact universally acknowledged (at least at the Lucky offices) that every woman wants to look chic—but effortlessly so. Nailing that I-just-woke-up-like-this look, however, is harder than it sounds. Which is why we’re thrilled to present you with this genius shortcut: Give your skinny and boyfriend jeans a dose of laid-back charm by snipping off the hem and letting it fray. Man Repeller blogger Leandra Medine, J.Crew president Jenna Lyons and fashion consultant Yasmin Sewell are already onboard with the style—and it’s easy to see why. Worn with ladylike pumps and a pretty blouse or sneakers and a T-shirt, artfully undone denim adds just the right amount of imperfection. Our favorite part about the trend? It won’t cost you a cent, provided you have a good pair of scissors handy.
