Fashion Favorites: The Year’s Biggest Denim Trend (Hint: It’s Not Skinny Jeans)

Our fail-safe skinny silhouette is feeling a little tired and restrictive these days. If you’re unconsciously nodding in agreement, it’s time to shake up your routine with the year’s biggest denim trend: the straight-leg crop. Whether you love your denim clean, cuffed, distressed, or featuring a step hem, for the rest of 2017, straight cropped denim is king.

 

Denim Trend: Casual Classic

Casual Classic

Tie up or tuck in a crisp white or subtly striped button-down, then add a bright bag, simple jewelry, and nude block heels. Keep this look intentionally casual by rolling up your sleeves and cuffing your lightly distressed denim.

 

Denim Trend: Femme Embroidery

Femme Embroidery

Reach for a pretty, feminine tank with embroidery, lace, or ruffled details. Complete your look with beaded turquoise jewelry, a neutral clutch, and bright tasseled heels. Our summer color picks: sunny yellow, fresh aqua, and fiery orange.

 

 

Denim Trend: Streetwear Edge

Streetwear Edge

Choose a destructed style to pair with a studded utility vest, striped crop top, and metallic slip-on sneakers. For a street-meets-boho take on this look, pair your denim and vest with a gauzy tunic tank and strappy lug sole sandals.

 

Denim Trend: Modern Tomboy

Modern Tomboy 

Create this easy-to-wear look with a patterned bomber, bright tee, and chunky-soled lace-up sneakers. Remember to keep your denim choice clean so it doesn’t compete with this bold print-plus-bright-color combo.
