While some people dread shopping for jeans (don’t get me wrong, it requires some serious time), I can’t say that I have ever had that problem. Instead of tossing pairs to the side, I am continually adding to my collection with new washes and cuts. The latest pair to join my growing pile: the Nudie Tilted Tor. The slim tapered leg is flattering cuffed or not, and the waist is slightly tilted to have a higher back rise, which I prefer. Nudie always kills it with the wash of their denim, and this pair is no exception. The light wash is SO perfect for spring, and the vintage feel fits perfectly with what is currently trending. It seems that Spring 2017 has a major focus on denim. Whether it be designers playing around with hemlines, adding floral embroidery, or throwing it back to the days when jean skirts were actually cool (yup, they’re back), this season is all about the blue jean, baby. So let’s talk about it! Keep reading to find out my 5 favourite spring denim trends.
1. DISTRESSED HEMLINES
Uncut, stepped, or lined with fringe, interesting hemlines add a touch of edge to denim and draw the eye downward to also show off those fresh spring shoes! Opt for a more vintage inspired straight-cut for a fresh feel.
While having a major moment on bomber jackets, embroidery is now popping up on denim too. What better way to welcome the new season than with springtime florals down the side of your jeans?
3. THE CROPPED FLARE
The cropped flare is a great way to show off your ankles and shoes, and while the wide culotte shape is popular, don’t rule out a slimmer kick flare option.
4. LIGHTEN THINGS UP
Warmer temps naturally call for lighter colours. Try introducing a pair of not-quite-white, or chalk coloured denim as an alternative to super light distressed denim.
5. THE JEAN SKIRT
The denim mini is having a moment! Pair it with a button down for a polished look, or rock a vintage tee, and old skool vans for a laid back vibe.
That’s a wrap! What’s your go-to denim for spring or is there a trend you are looking forward to trying? Let me know in the comments!
Until next time,
