You may have seen the Denim Hacker post about the denim trends to embrace in 2017. Since there are new trends emerging, there are some denim trends and pieces that should be left in the wardrobe, at least for a little while. So to help keep your style on trend in 2017, here are the denim styles that are out.
Those super tight, legging style jeans made from a thinner, stretchy denim are going out of style for 2017, in favor of a more rigid and structured style. The jegging may make you feel super hot as they hug the booty, and make the legs appear longer. But let’s face it, the jegging is not the most comfortable jean to wear, loosing some feeling in your feet is not unusual and nothing can be stored in their pockets. Plus, have you ever tried to pull a pair on over damp legs after a shower —it’s a nightmare. So maybe a little break from jeggings isn’t such a bad thing afterall.
By fake distressing, we mean the cheaper machine-made distressing effect that is so common it is almost ubiquitous. It isn’t original or unique, and there is nothing authentic about it…it is just a little boring and standard don’t you think? Instead choose a good pair of darker wash jeans, in a stiffer fabric with distressed details, or invest in a quality pair of vintage jeans, which have distressed over time, Levi’s have a great selection, but so will many thrift stores.
Tight Ankles and Turn-Ups
Jean silhouettes that are tight to the ankle and with turn-up cuffs are out for 2017. This year the feeling in our toes returns as the denim trends dictate that we can give our ankles some freedom, in wide legs, straight legs and flared silhouettes. The turn-ups have also went out of style, in favor of ankle details, like fringing, embroidery or other embellishments.
Wide leg silhouettes may be in for full length jeans, but the wide leg denim culottes that were big in the summer of 2016, have fell out of favor for this year. Instead look for a little bit of structure in a midi denim pencil skirt, which will be versatile enough to wear all year round. WIth a tee, biker jacket and boots in the spring, floaty camisole and sandals in the summer, denim shirt and ankle boots in autumn, and oversized jumper and tights in the winter. The denim pencil skirt is the perfect staple wardrobe piece, but save those denim culottes for a beach holiday, they will still look great over your bikini.
In fact save all of your denim pieces that don’t fit in with the trends of 2017. Denim trends go in cycles, so a style that may not be on trend this year, may be popular once again next year. Plus, you can never really have too much denim can you?
