Ah, Denim, so deeply woven into our everyday outfits and every few years a new wave of style and trend either makes its debut or comeback. Think skinny jeans, many would say that it is on its way out, but I think it is no longer consider a “trend” but rather part of the classics. And with the fading spotlight on the skinnys, bring on the abundance of denim options! I often browse through Shopbop to check out the Hot Selling Trend as Shopbop is one of my favorite site to find the best styles and most selection with all the different designers and price points they offer. Let’s not forget their Friends + Family Sale going on right now 25% off Regular & Sale items with code INTHEFAM through the end of Thursday 4/7!!
As the weather is getting warmer and color palates gets lighter for spring, I thought I’d sound off on some denim trends that I think that is either already in Trend or emerging on the trendometer. You’ll see how I’ve styled these trends in my past outfit posts, as well as some great options at different price points to consider buying. Now let’s start talk denim!!
Denim Trends You Need to Know Now
Slim Boyfriend – This is a LOT more attractive than the original Boyfriend jeans because let’s face it, while it may be comfy, the Boyfriend was not that flattering and when not styled correctly it looks down right frumpy and butch. Plus it doesn’t really boost our self-esteem to be looking like our SO, so I was pretty happy to see that the designers and brands took note and put an updated and more refined touch to the popular style.
The Flare – Whether you flare a little (petite flare, boot-cut) seen HERE or flare a lot (bell bottom, kick flares) like THIS, the revival of all things 70’s-inspired kick started this once popular style (2000’s anyone?). I personally prefer a petite flare over wider legs, but it is fun to try a wider style once in a while to kick things up a notch. I recommend trying out a few to see where your comfort level lies.
Cropped Flares – Its basically the culottes of jeans. This new silhouette is the new darling for bloggers. It’s flattering and perfect paired with a fun ankle boot for the cooler weathers and wedges for warmer climates. I have yet to experiment with this denim style given that I’ve only warmed up to the culottes recently seen in my previous post, but do expect to see my spin on it very soon.
Fringe/Frayed Hem – This trend is for the fashion forward gals, I mean just look at the surging popularity of 3×1 Jeans on major bloggers and you’ll see why. The signature WM3 cropped fringe jeans is literally sold out the minute a new shipment hits the shelves in stores like Neiman and Barneys and Saks. Other brands took notes and crafty fashionistas took to their DIY skills and followed.
White Jeans – I’ll be the first to admit that like the culottes, I was not a fan of white jeans initially. Never-mind the high maintenance especially when you have two toddlers who can barely eat on their own, it is also known that the color white adds visual space horizontally. The last thing we need is more thighs or butt than we already have. But, that said, I have since embraced it and look at it now, the color has span across all spectrum of trends.
So these are a few trends that I’ve seen emerging or already blossomed thus far. I’m sure there are a lot more but for now I think we have enough options to experiment with and with the Shopbop sale, the kid in candy store syndrome is pretty strong in my case. Hope everyone a great hump day and Carpe DENIM! 🙂
