I’ve said it before – distressed denim is just my thing. I love a good rip, raw edge, or chewed hem. From subtle to all out destroyed I’ve tried lots of distressed denim. I rounded up my favorite pairs of distressed denim under $100 (some way under!) But in case this look is not for you – check out my favorite non-distressed denim finds here.
Goodthreads Mid Rise Jeans
I guess I have a thing for grey denim lately – feels a bit more dressed up than your average blue jean. These are a skinny jean with a slightly cropped fit and raw edge hem. There are lots of colors and hem choices available.

Abercrombie High Rise Skinny Ankle
Yup – another pair of grey jeans! These have a more rigid fit and the perfect chewed hem. They also have a bit more “whiskering” – the faded look across the thigh.

Abercrombie High Rise Super Skinny Ankle
I used to live in a pair of Levi’s with big knee holes, but I haven’t seen them in a while – so this is my newest update. They have a true skinny fit with slight stretch and a subtle step hem.

Articles of Society Sarah Distressed Skinny
These are my tried and true classic pair of distressed denim under $100. I have a few (3) pairs of these because they are just that good! True to size, but due to stretch I would size down.

Old Navy High-Waisted Rockstar Super Skinny Ripped Jeans
Switching up the rips to the thighs rather than the knees! These have a longer fit at the ankle so you can wear them over sock booties or tuck them into boots.
Abercrombie High Rise Skinny Jeans
These are the ultimate in relaxed and ripped fit. They aren’t quite a straight let, but not as slim as a skinny. I love the light wash and usually give the bottom hem a little tuck.

Kancan Gemma Mid Rise
I put on these Kancan jeans and quickly fell in love. The perfect placed tears and the unexpected distressing make for the ultimate in attitude. They are also wildly comfy!

The Drop Fairfax High Rise Ankle Skinny Jean
Lastly, these black jeans by the The Drop have been a go-to when I am feeling a bit edgy 🙂 While these can be dressed up they also have a casual cool feel to them.
