Top 10 Denim Trends For This Spring

Denim never goes out of style, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t change with the times. Jean jackets, jean skirts, and actual jeans are taking center stage in fashion this season. What should you be looking for if you’re looking to update your collection? We’ve assembled the top ten denim trends to watch out for.

1. Denim with details: There’s something about getting DIY with your denim that is making a giant splash in fashion. Whether it be buttons, patches, pins or embroidering, this call for individuality is not something to be ignored this summer.

2. Mini Skirt: We don’t need to point out to you that the button-front denim mini has been everywhere this season. If you’re hesitant to get one for yourself because you think it’s too trendy, don’t worry. It’s the least ostentatious trend on this list and can easily be taken through the seasons with sleeveless blouses or slouchy sweaters.

3. Cropped Flare: These Jeans are having their moment right now. This style takes the flare of the 70’s jean with the tea length crop (that has been having a modern day debut for the past year now). For shorter people worrying how it will look on them, pair it with heels to elongate your legs. A jean should hit perfectly at the top of your ankle, not an inch above or below.

4. Long Denim Jackets: Stella McCartney re-introduced this polarizing look into her F/W ‘16 collection this month. Whether you think it’s too reminiscent of the infamous Justin-Brittany VMA’s look of 2001 or a cool nod to the era of Keanu in the Matrix, the look is going to be hitting stores near you very soon. Wear it with a cropped top and high waisted pants to create a balance between the long coat and your outfit.

5. All-in-One: Calling all riveters! The look of the denim one piece has resurfaced. Rompers, jumpsuits and overalls galore. The glory of a jumpsuit is you can throw it on and your outfit is finished. Worried the jumpsuit look is too youthful? Pair it with a moto jacket to give it a more grown up feel.

6. White Jeans: The preppiness of the white jean is perfect for the warmer weather. Dare to go white on white for the ultimate refined look or put an edgy twist to your ensemble by pairing the jeans with a bomber jacket.

7. Denim Dresses: What’s easier than a dress that matches just about every shoe in existence? Nothing. Denim dresses are the most versatile piece in your wardrobe. It’s perfect with your flats, booties, heels - whatever you’re in the mood for. Experiment your funkiest accessories with this simply stylish frock.

8. Vest: Want a piece that will last you forever and will keep coming back in style? Look no further than the denim vest. Bring this timeless addition to life by pairing it with bright tank tops and dresses this summer. Then transition into fall with lightweight turtlenecks.

9. Fringed denim: Short girls rejoice: the frayed bottoms of your jeans can now be considered in-vogue! Of course, the fringe look is more nuanced than that. Vests and jackets are great denim pieces to try for this trend especially at upcoming music festivals.

10. “Old School” Jacket: Remember the relaxed fit you had in your jean jacket back in the day? It’s now back in style. Rock the oversized look with a darker wash denim pant for the ultimate Canadian Tuxedo.
