Bye-Bye, Blue Jeans: Say Hello to Spring 2019’s Denim Trends
Classic blue jeans are a wardrobe staple that we’ll never deprive our closet of. We’re a blue-jeaned baby at heart (please excuse us while we go sing our best rendition of Tiny Dancer), but we’re itching to ditch the dark hues for fresh, spring-inspired pairs. Our insider secret? Our stylists are trading in traditional for daring, and we’re 100% here for it. Whether you’re looking to switch up your off-duty denim or need a new office-appropriate pair, we’ve got you covered with the top denim trends to invest in this season.
Oh, white denim. We’re so thankful that we get to wear you year round. If you’ve been sporting them throughout winter in a warm cream hue, it’s time to brighten it up with a crisp white. Pair them with stripes for a slightly nautical feel, or, if you want to try out a street-savvy style, go head-to-toe white. Whether you opt for the same exact shade or a mix of similar hues, a monochromatic ensemble is sure to turn heads–and that’s a look we can get behind.
For spring, there’s a kaleidoscope of colors to choose from when it comes to denim–purples, yellows, reds, and greens are especially prominent. What we’re most excited about is that your colored denim doesn’t have to be paired with basic pieces. Adding a print or mixing different colors (whether they’re in the same color family or not) will give your ensemble a truly modern feel.
Okay, so maybe we lied. 😬 (We just can’t quit you, blue jeans!) But while you don’t have to give them up completely, we’re seeing a strong shift towards a faded straight-leg instead of the deep indigo skinny that’s been a mainstay in past seasons. We love the nod to the nineties and are crazy about all of the different options out there. Don’t be afraid to play with the hemline a bit. Try out a step-hem, a raw hem, or even a two-toned hem to give your look some personality.
