Jeans have become a staple of every person's wardrobe because of the garment's durability and versatility. Made of tough denim fabric, a good pair of jeans is easy to maintain, requiring no special detergent or washing technique. It also matches well with other types of clothing and accessories, from casual T-shirts and sneakers to sophisticated blazers and dress shoes.
Even the catwalks did not escape the popularity of jeans, with many fashion designers incorporating copious trimmings and embellishments, adding a touch of their personalities on the denim pants.
The recently concluded spring and summer runways displayed a range of denim styles that are expected to dominate 2017. Here are some of the top trends:
With a high-waist and tapered legs, the versatility of mom jeans is expected to push its popularity this year. Such garments look good with both trainers and heels. A tucked-in top and a nice belt can help bring balance to the style.
Oversized and turn-up boyfriend jeans will likewise be prominent. With the style, one can dress up with a pair of pointed heels and a boucle jacket, or keep it casual with chunky boots and an embroidered pullover.
Flares of all lengths are also making a comeback. Featuring slimming and leg-lengthening cut, the flared jeans match well with heels.
The cropped flare, meanwhile, will enjoy a large following as the style is tailor-made to suit most body shapes because of the cut of the legs.
Customized pieces are also among the anticipated denim highlights of 2-17. Accents include undone and step hems, fringing and super rips. Colorful embroidery and badge details, along with other chic adornments, will jazz up selections.
