1822 Raw Hem Crop Skinny Jeans

1822-crop-jeans

A cool neutral hue like gray pairs easily with everything and has a minimalist, modern feel. Pick a darker gray for a bit of a more polished vibe that you can dress up with heels and statement jewelry, or a light tone to skew more casual for running weekend errands with a pair of cool kicks.

To buy: $42; nordstrom.com.
