With fall quickly rolling in, so are the cool, new trends in denim. We all rely on our denim to carry us from season to season, using the ever-changing trends to constantly revamp our wardrobes. One of the best ways to ensure a great day is to make a statement wherever you go with the perfect outfit. We’ve got you covered on the six biggest fashion trends for denim.
Yep, still going strong! While these have been a hit for a while, they’re still making the scene and not going away soon.
Style trend: Pair them with your favorite stylish knee-high boots and comfy sweater, or throw on a sleek skinny top and booties, statement jacket and scarf.
Bring on the “Extra”
Extreme looks, such as extra-wide leg, super high-waist or low-cut and loose are statement looks. Vertically challenged? No problem. Extreme high-waist denim provides the elongated silhouette, and this season’s trend is embellishments, from exaggerated waists and darts to distressing, jewels, and button detail. Thanks to runways, low-rise jeans are making a comeback for 2022, falling loose and easy, rather than skin-tight.
Style trend: Pair with a wide belt or business jacket. This look is a conservative refresh of the old low-waist.
Straight-leg jeans work on any body type, and for that reason, maintain their superior fashion ranking. Look for updates to this modern classic this fall, such as cuffs, darts and raw hem lines.
Style trend: Pair with virtually any heel or the simple canvas tennis shoe.
The Utilitarian Look
Accented with cargo pockets, zippers, and various carpenter-style details, this look is rising in fashion popularity rather than its previous use decades ago for simple functionality.
Style trend: The Utilitarian Look can be chic with a paper bag waist, heels, and a detailed jean jacket, or short boots and a belt for a more casual look.
The jean jacket has always kept its place as a classic staple, giving you comfort and style simultaneously. For this fall, tailored jackets and bustiers are what’s hot.
There’s also a trend towards darker washes. Combining the tailored look and darker denim is going to give this fall’s fashion a modern kick.
Style trend: Denim bustier and a tailored jacket add flair and sophistication to any ensemble.
Skirting Around the Subject
Denim skirts aren’t just for your mom or Sunday church this fall. New York designers are saying that long, denim maxi skirts are an upcoming hot button. Think Jennifer Aniston circa early 2000’s.
Style trend: Pair a denim maxi with a crop top, sneakers, or stubby boots with an industrial flair.
Your favorite denim piece is a staple to creating your new favorite fall outfits, making a statement wherever the winds take you! Now it’s time to get those creative juices flowing and show off your latest denim sensation.
