Jeans are one of the most essential things that anybody can have in their wardrobe, and basically everybody should own at least one pair of jeans. It is hardly surprising really when you really consider just how versatile they really are; you can dress them up or down, they slim and lengthen your legs, smooth you out and make your curves really look great and when you have a pair of jeans that makes you look great, you are sure to feel great and get a confidence boost too.
Like with any fashion item though, jeans also go through their own phases and fads, and since they are such an integral item to our wardrobes, it is important to make sure that you keep an eye on jeans trends too to help make sure that you don’t look dated. To help you out, we’ve made a little list here of some of the key jean trends that you’ll be seeing this spring-summer and into autumn this year. Read on to find them out.
If they were big last year, then this season embroidered motifs on your denim are huge with the biggest tendency being towards floral designs. They are a bit of a retro look, but are a great way to add a bit of interest to a pair of jeans. Many of the motifs are brightly coloured too and can transform a boring pair of jeans into something that look a bit more upmarket. You’ll have already been seeing these designs everywhere from top designers, to high street and supermarket retailers, so it is high time that you gave it a go if you haven’t already! If you are really on a tight budget then you can easily add some patches to a pair of jeans that you already own yourself; pick them up at a haberdashery for an instant fashionable addition to an existing pair of jeans.
Love or hate this trend, ripped knees, which are a bit of a hangover from last year, look like they are here to stay for another season. To get this look right, it really does look better on a more traditional pair of classic blue jeans rather than on the various other shades out there. The thicker the denim, the more authentic it looks too so try to avoid those super skinny jegging type jeans that boast this look. Again you can always rip up a pair of worn jeans to create this look easily enough.
A throwback to the early 1990s, double denim is one of those trends that can stalk that fine line between fashion chic and fashion disaster, but this season it is most definitely back in vogue. Team your jeans with a tie-dye denim shirt for example, or with a cute little denim jacket for a practical yet edgy look this summer. You can even go for a pair of denim effect pumps or espadrilles instead if you fancy. This look again works best with brighter blue shades of denim.
