Denim is always a go to in your closet because of its versatility. It goes with almost any top and any pair of shoes. But what about when you want to take your jeans from the neutral outfit accompaniment to the focus of your outfit? This fall and winter, be on the lookout for these denim trends and try incorporating them into our outfit to spice up your jean routine with denim options that will turn heads but keep your outfit classic.
1. Frayed hems. Frayed hems are the new destressed jeans (although the perfectly crafted rips and tears will always hold a special place in our hearts). They give your jeans the distressed look without completely going there. They add personality and a little flash, all while looking like a typical pair of jeans. Another great thing about this trend is that it’s something relatively new. Styles like skinny and flare may move in and out of style but this trend hasn’t circulated in recent years.
2. Two-toned jeans. This trend is a little bit more of a statement. It’s a combination of two washes meshed together to create a blended look. But, to make sure this look is pulled off correctly, the washes have to have enough contrast in tone but not too much. When adding this trend to your closet, do your research to make sure you get the right wash pairings.
3. Floral Embroidered jeans. And just when we thought jeans couldn’t get better. Adding the colorful and textured floral embroidery to jeans are a great option to make your jeans a statement piece. Another reason we adore this trend is that this look can be a DIY project to an old pair of jeans that needs a little more love. Hand stitch the patches onto jeans in an accent colored thread to make those old jeans your new favorite jeans.
4. Grommets. Feeling industrial? If not, you better start! Get ready to see grommets down the sides of jeans this fall. This trend is new and coming in hot. Jeans with grommets tend to be toward the edgy side but can easily be incorporated into a fashion favorite.
5. Flare jeans. Bet you wish you hadn’t gotten rid of all those flared jeans from years ago because the flare is back and better than ever. While we’re definitely not ready to give up our skinny jeans, make some room in your closet for flared jeans to jump on the boho train.
6. Patch work. As you might have noticed, in the upcoming seasons it’s all about mixing and matching denim washes to create a fun, yet balanced look. With the patch work trend, it is more about pops of different denim colors rather than combining two washes. This look is a little harder to pull off if you try to do this as a DIY project. We suggest splurging on a pair if you really want to rock this look.
