Who doesn’t love a good pair of jeans? If you’re like me, it’s your go-to piece of clothing that never lets you down. Now that we’re at the beginning of the year, we’re wondering about 2017 denim trends and which styles to break out or go shopping for. Is the skinny still in? Are bell bottoms making a comeback? Should we put away those boyfriend jeans?
Jeans have been around for over 140 years, but even along that journey there have been changes along the way. New trends bring with them styles and options that help to create a look and define an attitude. The same goes for the 2017 denim trends that will be hitting the market in the coming weeks and months.
“There are some exciting jean fashion trends that are on the horizon,” explains Jonathan Greenberg, chief operating officer of Swat Fame Inc., who manufactures the popular STS Blue line of jeans. “They will give people a chance to show their personality, as well as add to their personal style.”
Here are the 2017 denim trends to watch out for:
All About the Ankle
Jeans that are ankle length and have ankle detail will be a big hit in 2017. Variety will be everything on inseams ranging from 29-26; such as a step hem, curved hem, raw hem, and fray hem. They’re a perfect opportunity to highlight your new shoes.
I love that this style is back especially because it gives a little something extra to your denim. If you don’t have any jeans that come with embroidery, consider getting some iron on patches and giving new life to an old pair!
Black is Always in Style
Black denim was a huge trend in 2016 and will continue this year. These are easy to dress up for any occasion and lets face it, black will never go out of style.
Deconstructed Boyfriend Jeans
I’m not a huge fan of boyfriend jeans but a skinny boyfriend, that I’m definitely into. If you’re more into the skinny jean with a boyfriend vibe, these are the ones for you.
As always, Los Angeles is a major trendsetter in jeans and in fashion.
“LA helps to set the trends that the rest of the nation follows,” says STS Blue creative director Evelyn Ober. “We can’t wait to show you our spring collection and know they will be a big hit with those who love STS Blue, as well as those looking for something on trend and is effortlessly cool to wear this New Year.”
