9 New Denim Trends To Try Now And Wear Through Fall
If there’s one piece of clothing that pretty much everyone has in their closet, it’s denim. Throughout the decades and fashion fads that come with, this staple remains, holding the very same importance as it always has. “In the 50s it was rebellion with James Dean, in the 60s it was flares and bell bottoms to go with the hippie movement, in the 70s it was very Americana, in the 80s it was all about designer jeans, and in the 90s baggy denim based on the fact that hip-hop and grunge were hot,” explains Jenny Applegate, Chicago-based personal stylist. “In the early 2000s, low rise, belly-baring denim was popular – with the terrible thong hanging out – and then skinny jeans became super popular based on new denim technology.”
Luckily, we’ve entered an age where the denim isn’t all that daring or disastrous, but rather relaxed, cropped, and vintage-inspired. “Today’s denim is anything but basic, and with skinny jeans becoming the trench coat of denim, they are no longer a trend,” explains Nicole Russo, stylist and founder of Let’s Get You. If you’re looking to upgrade your denim to reflect what’s hot right now, especially in time for fall, Russo recommends reaching for fashion-forward deconstructed styles, universally-flattering kick-flares or a new every day style in high-rise, straight-legged crops. “Anything with volume, whether in a wide-legged silhouette or mom-jean style rigid denim, is a safe bet for Fashion Week 2018,” she adds.
