Edgy Denim Trends For Spring 2017

Edgy Denim Trends For Spring 2017

All of you who can’t think of a closet without the beautiful hues of denims, I’ve got some great news for you – your beloved fabric isn’t going anywhere in 2017. Although, this year it’s not just about adding a new silhouette to the rotation but about taking your denim game up a notch. Creative fashionistas are ruling out the usual denim look with some refreshing styles – from unconventional cuts to size-inclusive labels and some very interesting finishes.

Street fashion ushers us into a whirlwind of ultra-dramatic flares, glamorous pearl-embellished details, and funky, ruffle-trim cropped jeans. And if you were of the impression that nothing could beat this, then let me introduce you to the very cool denim jacket which is back on popular demand. I’ve put together the denim must-haves of the season to help you build a better denim wardrobe for Spring 2017.

The Patchwork Jean

A major trend for spring this year is the creative flair of patchwork denim. Striking a quirky balance between the dressy and the messy, the patchwork jean features the addition of unconventional pockets to colourfully embroidered patches to niftily pieced-together boyfriend jeans. Pair them with a simple tee or even convey that retro vibe by taking a trip to yesteryear fashion with a vintage-inspired jacket. With the promise of durability, your patchwork jeans come out of the closet – ready to wear, sans wrinkles – that’s why you need a pair of these.

Pearl-Embellished Jean

You may have noticed an overarching Spring denim trend for 2017; which is all about custom styles, with no limitations to one’s sense of creativity. From ripped and patched denims to bleached and asymmetrical ones, denim is in an exciting place right now. Pearl-embellished jeans are right in step –  with rolled hems and wider waistbands, and other fun details – they add a touch of whimsical and put a fun pair of jeans firmly in the season’s denim trend; proving that pearls really have a way of turning the most jaded items in your wardrobe into a thing of beauty.

Half Buttoned, Falling Off-The-Shoulders Denim Jacket

One particular trend that made it to the streets from the runways of the Spring ’17 shows is the one-shouldered style — this year’s take on the off-the-shoulder trend. If you are familiar with just one right way of sporting your classic denim jacket, then it is time for you to incorporate some freshness to the way you wear them; ease into the look the off-shouldered way – that’s the asymmetry with a gentle touch of sophistication. Throw them over your shoulders and button them up halfway through for an effortless vibe and this will become your go-to outerwear piece for the year.

Bright Spring Hues With Pop Colour Jeans

Though coloured denim has never truly gone out of style, it is making a bold appearance this season with punchy, cheerful colours that go remarkably well with coordinating neutrals. Just remember that the brighter the hue, the less you need going on everywhere else.  For example, tonal creams, greys and whites complement brightly hued denims for a crisp and balanced look. Start the day with a long-sleeved blouse paired with your pop colour jeans as you head to work and end it in a casual pair of sneakers and a loose tee to enjoy the evening with your girls.

Jeans with Dramatic Flares

Slim-cut jeans are a classic pair which can see you through any day, but if you’re eager to branch out then Spring 2017 promises to be all about bigger, breezier hems. From modern ultra-wide silhouettes to vintage-inspired high-waist bells; jeans with dramatic flares make street style look cool yet sophisticated. Perfect for a number of occasions, just like the comeback of high-rise jeans; dramatic flares are back with a bang!

Embroidered Denim

From intricately detailed embroidery to pearlescent crystal embellishment to subdued hues with elements of patchwork – recreating the soulful interpretation of 70’s glamour; one simply can’t deny the whimsical aesthetic of embroidered denims. Get into the embellished denim game by pairing yours with a sequin top for a brazen look or go austere with a simple white tee and let your denim steal the show.

Cuffed Jeans

Who hems anymore? Cuff your jeans this season and never look back! All things considered, street style is all about taking something straightforward and transforming it into something remarkable with the assistance of some basic additions. This season, the way to the ideal fitted jeans is no longer a trip to your local tailor, but instead an uncomplicated roll of the wrist for a double take–worthy result. Choose the length that you are comfortable with —mid-length or knee-length and make a statement with your cuffed jeans.

Ruffled-Hem Jeans

Your search for a placid version of the dramatic flares ends here. Intentional, ruffle-hem cuffs take away the brazenness but retain the dapper look of denim. Elements of soft chambray gently interweave into the ruffle accents to create a look that whispers the tale of comfort culture in the making. The ruffle-cuff advantage is that you can show off those classy pair of heels and let the soft ruffles flatter your legs. Pair with a pretty blouse or a casual tee and a structured blazer.

The Kick Flare Cropped Jean

I know we’ve built up an association with our classic skinny jeans over the years, but the cropped kick-flare denim guarantees to convey an invigorating change to that everyday look. Cute shoes and curvy looks go well with this style because most of these jeans come in a mid-rise or high-rise design, where tucking in your blouse will define your waistline. Platform heels or loafers go best with this style.

 

Conclusion: With the level of comfort they offer and the unshakable place they have assumed in the fashion world, denim is easy to fall in love with. The durability of the fabric and the inclusion of pockets make them practical too. Dress them up with an elegant top and glitzy stilettos or tone down you look with a casual tee and sneakers. Perfect for a number of occasions, denim is cool and reliable. And like I promised, this spring’s selection is playful, vibrant and full of liveliness. I hope you liked my recommendations for denim additions to your new season wardrobe.
