There's one jean style that I am sure you must have seen trending recently, jeans with raw hems that are shorter in the front and longer in the back. This style is called the uneven hem jeans. 

The uneven hem is a little unexpected and interesting. The shorter cut in front shows off ankles in a flattering way but the longer back hem adds versatility and is totally leg-lengthening. The best thing about this style? You can wear it with heels AND flats with no cuffing or adjusting!

Pair yours with a white button-down and heels to take things up a notch, or swap in a tee to keep things casual. And while we've all been busy shopping the trend, if you've got an old pair of jeans hanging around, feel free to re-create the look at home, without spending a dime, as you can recreate this look easy DIY moves. However, you decide to give the trend a spin, know that you can't go wrong with a step hem. If you want to rock this trend, here is a simple way you can recreate this without spending a lot of money and a number of ideas on how to rock this trend.

What you’ll need:

  • A pair of straight leg jeans Fabric scissors
  • Seam ripper or knife 
  • Ruler
  • Pen


Start by cutting the hem off the bottom of each leg. Cut just above the stitch line. Try the jeans on and measure how high you want the front of your jeans to rise. Take off your jeans, turn them inside out and make a few hash marks with your ruler. Draw a line across the front side of each leg. Measure 2 inches initially but you can add another half inch if you want it more noticeable.
