It’s a safe bet to say that there will always be room in your closet for denim staples. Although a good old chambray shirt or our trendy boyfriend jeans aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, we wanted room for some newness. This summer, we’re welcoming six trends that are either debuting or making a huge comeback among the fashion crowd. Whether you’re in the mood for irresistible new silhouettes or want to make a fashion statement the classic way, you’ll be sure to find your new favourites among these six denim styles. Plus we’ve got styling tips on how to rock each pair like the trendsetter you are.
It’s no secret why flare jeans have stuck around since the ‘70s as a trusted denim silhouette. Both flattering and comfortable, they can take you from day to night, anywhere from the office to a concert. Already own your favourite pair? This wash is the perfect upgrade for summer.
If you happen to be a huge fan of the crop top trend, opt for high-waisted flared denim for an extreme slender silhouette. This will help create the illusion of an hourglass figure and will make you appear a few inches taller. Pair the ensemble with an open-toe sandal for a chic and easy summer look!
Unlike skinny or boyfriend jeans, wide leg denim can flatter any figure, especially if you find the perfectly fitted pair. Not to be confused with flared denim, wide leg trousers actually feature a wide opening from your thighs down, as opposed to the super hip-hugging ‘70s denim flare. Either paired with a button-down, an XL sweater or just a plain tee, they’re a safe bet for the office, the weekends and everything in between.
If you happen to be more on the curvy side, try drawing attention to your waist by pairing your favourite wide-leg jean with a simple, plain t-shirt, casually tucked in. The only thing left to do is to accessorize properly with a nice pair of heels and a matching bag.
Cropped jeans are a huge trend for summer. When the time comes to actually style the trend, you want to make sure you’ll end up looking more modern-chic than “mom-chic”. The figure-hugging denim has been a staple of women’s wardrobes since the mid-2000s and is ideal for occasions that aren’t too dressy but still call for a little something special. It’s a great way to show off your favourite pair of footwear, on top of being breezy enough to sport during the warmer months.
Dare to show off your feminine side with a light wash, cropped fitted denim and a crisp white, flowy bohemian blouse, tucked-in at the front and left out hanging at the back. The oversize style of your top will give a nice movement to your ensemble, while still keeping the attention on your legs. Time to put on that gorgeous pair of sandals and grab a matching bag for the ultimate city-girly vibe !
Denim trends come and go so quickly that it’s almost exhausting to keep up, but if there’s one type of jean that’s become a modern classic, it’s the artfully destroyed pair. There’s nothing like the undone, seamless detail of an unfinished hem to take your off-duty denim look to new heights. Yes, frayed jean hems are officially a thing, with a rip that is both casual and cool making such a style easy to wear.
During summer, soften your raw hem denim looks with a breezy, short-sleeved top and a cute pair of open-toe sandals in a neutral tone for a casual, yet feminine allure. The combination will create a stunning juxtaposition of refined and rough for your days off-duty.
A tattered look certainly isn’t an easy one to pull-off; you want to aim for that perfect combination of torn but polished, distressed but collected, and effortless but chic. However, you will want to make sure you pair your distressed jeans with separates that will do these tears justice so your favourite weekend denim can look anything but sloppy.
We decided to bring back the denim on denim trend which is known to dress-up any pair of jeans, from the neater ones to the most destroyed. Touch base with your inner tomboy and go all-in with a full-on head-to-toe distressed look, wearing a slouchy boyfriend shirt under your favourite denim jacket. Your best effort at a minimal look!
To whoever said high-water pants weren’t a thing, we’ve got some news for you… When you fuse cropped denim with a flared hem, you get the cropped flare, the new and fun fashion fit of the season every “it” girl is already going nuts for. We now have a great silhouette that lets us display a little bit of leg action while giving our favourite footwear a chance to shine. Yes, the new denim length is kicky and totally stylish!
With the right hemming, a good heel does wonders ! Even though kick-flares work with pretty much everything, from sneakers and boots to brogues, a delicate and elegant heeled sandal can make your trousers look a hint more sophisticated, and accentuate the feminine side of your outfit. Top the ensemble with a maxi cardigan for a cool and casual, yet uptown aesthetic.
