A good pair of denim is a staple in any closet. You can dress them up or down and wear them practically anywhere — everybody knows that. But you can also get good jeans from a lot of popular retailers, so when a lot of people become obsessed with a particular pair, it causes us to take notice. Especially if that pair racks up a wait list of 429 people, as Refinery29 pointed out.

The Most On-Trend Denim For SS17

SS17-StyleP-0735

It used to be enough to throw on a pair of skinnies and you were right on trend. Not this season. Denim offers a multitude of possibilities for spring/summer. These are the most on-trend looks of this season.

SS17-StyleP-0735

super-wide
Seventies-style flares have almost become a classic. If you love a wide leg, but want to keep your denim look elevated and utterly on trend, go super-wide. For the most flattering silhouette, choose high-waisted jeans and wear with wedges for an elongated leg.

Eighties style If you remember Bananarama, then the eighties pop band is your inspiration here. A cropped jacket in a stone wash is just the thing to transform your outfit from meh to totally...

What’s Your Denim Identity?

SS17C-CHerrera-007 (1)

Denim may be a classic staple but the way we choose to wear it is hugely personal. Which denim diva will you be this season?
For Retro Queens
The seventies-style flare remains a favourite for its flattering cut and leg-lengthening properties. Keep your look on the right side of retro by avoiding embroidered or broderie anglaise tops. A simple silk shirt and metallic shoulder bag keep this outfit in the 21st century.

For Quirky Classicists
You like sharp silhouettes and quintessential shapes but with a bit of a twist, so a classic trench reimagined in denim fits your style sensibilities. Keep the rest of your outfit understated and let your denim trench be the showpiece.

Leave Jeans Alone

landscape-1492524228-elle-sad-denim

I need someone to explain something to me. It is very confusing and I don't understand it. What is happening to jeans? Is there a conspiracy against jeans? As Racked pointed out, many sins have been committed against jeans in recent times. Wherefore? Whyfore? They are just a humble working pant!
You're a fashion-minded person. You've known for a while that all is not right in the world of denim. But if you think you knew just how not-right it has become, you are wrong. So, so wrong.

‘Bare Butt Jeans’ Are a Thing, and We Don’t Know How to Feel

GettyImages-172215362
Just when it seemed like 2017's denim trends couldn't get any more out of control (looking at you, "clear knee" jeans), Vetements introduced the craziest new look yet: bare butt jeans. In case you were wondering, it is exactly what it sounds like — jeans that show off your butt or whatever cute underwear you have on underneath. On Wednesday, the French fashion brand shared a sneak peek at its upcoming Vetements x Levis collaboration by way of an Instagram picture of the questionable-looking denim pants. From the photo, it looks like there are zippers down the backs of the jeans's legs, as well as one smack-dab on the back-center seam, which leaves the wearer with a bare booty and a...

How to Get the Vintage Denim Look Without Vintage Jeans

011317-non-vintage-denim-2
Unearthing that perfect pair of vintage jeans is the sartorial equivalent of a pot of gold. It's rigid in material, it sits high on the waist, its wash is neither too dark nor too light, and it boasts a silhouette that's straight, with a slim fit. Oh, and it makes your butt look really, really good. But when you don't have the time or the patience to sift through stacks of denim in search for this elusive unicorn of a pair, then it all seems like a lost cause. Factor in confusing vintage sizing and the sheer volume of stuff in thrift stores, and it's enough to weaken anyone's resolve. Luckily, denim brands know this. They see the demand, they understand...
