They say mothers know best. The same goes for Mother Denim, the L.A.-based brand famous for their soft, durable and classic jeans. Mother also arguably gave birth (sorry) to the step hem jean craze with the launch of the mega popular Insider Crop Step Fray jean. We’ve all seen the frayed hem cut straight across (and we love it) but the step hem’s motto is business in the front and party in the back. Here’s how you can get the look – no scissors required.
