A guide to styling a timeless classic for a sporty or sexy look. Choose your favorite style from a variety of denim shorts transformed into contemporary and striking outfits.
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.
Let’s be honest, nothing in your closet earns its keep like a good pair of jeans. You can dress them up, down, sexy, grungy, and everything in between. But finding the perfect pair is no easy feat. To make things easier, Pinterest compiled the best denim silhouettes for Spring 2017 according to what pinners are sharing.
1. Two-tone denim: This is the style that has grown the most in popularity. It’s up 381 percent so it’s in your best interest to jump on this trend now. You can get the look with William Rast Two-Tone Cropped Jeans ($80). Pair ’em with your new sandals and crop top all summer long.
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.
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.
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.
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.
