Mid-Rise Flare Jeans
We all know high-waisted jeans had their heyday in the 70s, but they made a comeback in 2010 and had a major renaissance in 2017. Not only do flare jeans lengthen your figure, but they also enhance it and give a more balanced look thanks to the “bell-bottom” ankles. Plus, they’re way more comfortable than skinny jeans. What’s the go-to trend for flare jeans in 2017? Deep indigo mid-rise flare jeans with frayed edges – rock them with an oversized sweater and some ankle booties and you’re good to go!
Lately, we’ve been seeing a lot of designers play with patchwork denim designs – basically a mash up of different washes in one jean clothing item. It’s fun and can really kick your casual outfit up a notch, from drab to fab! One tip - keep other aspects of your outfit simple. If you’re going to wear a pair of high-rise patchwork jeans, throw on a simple tee and some fashion sneakers in a singular color to look put together without going over the top.
Embroidered jeans can be tricky. If there’s too much going on, they can look tacky. That said, if balanced with a pop of color or dark top, you’ve got an outfit that is sure to catch everyone’s attention. Think of these jeans as a focal point piece of artwork in a room with neutral furniture and fixtures. Let your beautiful jeans can be the star of the show!
Denim Mini Skirts
Who wears short shorts, or skirts in this case? Apparently, everyone because the denim mini skirt trend is here to stay. Wear as is in warmer weather and then transition to cooler temps by adding a pair of knitted tights, a cozy sweater, and some combat boots.
Light Wash Jeans
Guys, we know you usually stick to a medium or dark wash pair of jeans. While you look great in them, it is time to switch things up a bit. Give light wash jeans a try by adding a cool graphic tee and pair of Vans or Converse.
If you didn’t get the message, we’re collectively over the skinny jean trend. They had their day in the sun, but lost out to the loose-fitting demin. In other words, you can breathe again! Not only is this style more comfortable, but it is also boasts a more mature fit – it just looks better and works on most body types. We promise you – once you try loose-fitting jeans, you’ll never want to go back to your skinnies.
Rough ‘Em Up a Bit
Women are used to distressed jeans – men not so much. Luckily, rips, holes, and frayed edges are starting to become more common and we’re excited about it! Why? Doesn’t it just add an edgier look? We’re into it, and in full support of this distressed denim trend. Bonus – want to go even edgier, adding an added element of style and mystery to your look?

Similar to women, embroidered denim items are becoming fairly popular in the men’s department as well. One of our favorite styles of this trend that is a decorated denim jacket. There are some versions that have huge, full designs on the back, while others have well placed badges and patches throughout. However, if you’re not convinced, you can’t go wrong with the classic jean jacket.
