Denim has experienced many transformations. Look back to when it was cool to have a big bell at the end of your jeans in the 70s. Now fast forward to now, that trend has seen another revival.
Take a look at the 90s, a time for everyone to dress like a skater. Wearing wide leg baggy jeans was all the rage. If you were lucky you even had the platform tennis shoes to match the oversized nature of the jeans.
In the 80s everything became acid washed and high waisted. Tight fitting jeans were a must have. If it wasn’t tight it wasn’t right. Fast forward to now- those high waisted tight jeans… are now considered ‘mom jeans’. (Eek!)
Throughout all the transformations that denim has experienced, one thing remains, this is the classic quality of the fabric. You have to admit that denim is one tough fabric. It has been embellished with studs, rhinestones, and even spikes. Although the fits and designs have waived, the fact that denim will always remain a classic has not. It is not a secret that it is a safe choice for deciding when a last minute what to wear. If nothing else seems to feel right a great pair of fitting jeans will always hit the spot.
Now that the experimentation phase of denim has died down designers have returned to what really matters. The fit, length, and cut of the jeans. Because no matter how many jewels or studs there are, if they don’t fit properly the whole outfit is a fail.
The denim of choice now is skinny jeans. First introduced a few years ago, this trend was expected to go out of style just like its peers. But it has proven to have staying power and has found its way into the closets of many fashionistas.
Another contender is the boyfriend jeans. While slightly baggy and loose in fit, this item can be just as versatile as the skinny jean.
Last but not least, the bootcut and straight leg. These denim cuts have always been in style but since the denim market is so crowded they have not had their time to properly shine.
So when shopping for jeans this fall season, stick with the classic, never fading cuts. Your wardrobe will thank you for it later.
