Who doesn’t own a single pair of navy jeans in their closet? Denim is the endless, all-time trend, one you can use at occasions ranging from a trip to a coffee shop all the way to a fancy dinner. This season is definitely the time for you to update your denims as, in general, the trends are focused on retro styles and basics, concentrating on patterns and cuts rather than the designs themselves. Let’s get into the details…
1. BOLD TURN-UPS:
Basic blue jeans or raw denims are refreshed with these 10-15 inch turn-ups, exposing the contrast between the inner and outer layer of the jeans. This provides a modern and clean look, allowing you to pair it up with basics or button-down shirts, preferably tucked in so that the high waste appears to the public.
This season, wide-leg jeans are the ultimate favorite piece for celebrities and fashion enthusiasts, as the cut brings a hype/artsy mood to every outfit. When you combine the wide cut at the ankle with a high-wasted shaping, it gives a retro appearance and enhances your height. This style of pants works with any type of basic t-shirt, especially retro and vintage ones that are also ‘must-have’s in the fashion world.
3. 1990’S BAGGY JEANS:
These kinds of jeans are essential if you are going to add a retro mood to your ensemble. 1990’s baggy jeans complement streetwear looks, while dungarees lend a thrifted appeal in line with the resurrection of old-school brands. They look fashionable with any kind of basic tee, but of course, tucked in. You can also opt for a hoodie in order to combine the street-style trend with the idea of an old-school look.
4. BLOCKING JEANS:
Blocking jeans are definitely ‘hype’ this season. The 50/50 splits of colour come through on different blue tones, as well as other colours like white. These types of jeans enhance any basic outfit, and you can match it with any kind of sneakers or heels. The ‘blocking jeans’ cut brings a laid-back and ‘fresh’ mood to any outfit, although you can also pair them with heels (such as the image above, on the upper right corner) in order to create a classy contrast.
