Unexpected Hero

The Step-Hem Jean

We think of an unexpected hero as an item in your wardrobe that rapidly becomes the star of all your outfits, when you didn’t anticipate it. The step-hem trend has appeared quite quickly, but we don’t see it falling off the radar any time soon. There’s a nonchalance about this style that instantly adds an air of cool to any look. Wear with dainty flats or, even better, heels and embrace the high/low aspect of this trend.

Top Tips:
  • Wear with a heel or super flats to take the edge off the toughness of the jeans
  • Go for a more fitted shape to keep it feminine
  • This can be worn with almost anything on top, just remember to tuck in for a more polished look
  • If your legs aren’t your favourite feature, avoid pale, washed-out colours and try a pair in black for the same impact
