As we all get older, it’s not about showing off the skinny legs, or figure-hugging clothing, but rather more so of feeling comfortable in your clothes. On that note, the denim styles at the moment are moving away from slick silhouettes to a more relaxed and voluminous feel.
The designers have reminded us of a pre-skinny golden age. Where jeans were thick, stretch-free and more of a statement than just an off-duty staple.
They are taking us back in time, as our moms always said “they’ll come back around one day” as sure as hell they did. Our fashion inspirations are all form the early 1900’s.
Shopping for jeans just got so much easier and made way for a looser look.
The Skinny Jean is dead, so long skinny jeans, we not sure if we will miss you or not, but so be it
The 5 new denim styles you need to get updated with.
Represents a true straight leg, loose fit and they usually have turn-ups. The boyfriend jean is the total opposite of the skinny jean.
Style them? Stay casual and settle for a classic T-shirt or cashmere jumper and for the evening, pair with a tuxedo jacket and shiny loafers or heels.
Deconstructed Vintage Denim
The new pair of denim jeans have been seen everywhere – the creation of a ‘cult’ jean. Deconstructed jeans are when two pairs of vintage Levi’s are taken, deconstructed and then sewed back together to form distinctive features like double-back pockets and uneven hems.
Style them? These jeans are the statement piece, so don’t over-think the rest of your outfit. By keeping your outfit fairly relaxed, a tee or shirt works best.
Highly characterised by its high waist, tapered leg, ankle crop and thick denim. The Mom jean borrows from the trends of the Eighties and Nineties.
How to style them? By embracing the Eighties feel, wear a tucked in crisp white shirt to show off the high waisted jean.
This new denim style takes the cosiness of the skinny jean in the upper leg but has a Nineties boot-cut flare or a Seventies bell-bottom. Cropped to an ankle-hovering length.
Style them? With emphasis being on the ankle, style this jean with a high-heeled patent boot or a trophy shoe, keeping it neat.
The ultimate statement denim is the return to customisation, where you can find add-on pins, studs, patches, monogramming, embroidery or custom distressing.
Style them? Very similar to the deconstructed style, the jeans are doing all the work here, so simplify your look: a basic tee with nice pair of shoes.
The best thing about wearing a pair of jeans is that they are extremely versatile. You can dress up the entire look to your own requirements, you can go from casual to glam by just swopping a few pieces.
