The streets have spoken and the runway had no choice but to comply. Denim, a textile icon of sorts, has left its traditional place of jeans and jackets and has emerged as the “it” fabric this year. In 2017, we see a full resurgence of denim being used creatively across all genres of fashion. The traditional American classic has resurfaced on the runways in the forms of tailored suits, as seen at Gucci, adorn with floral embellishments as seen in Huishan Zhang, to full-length trenches as shown at Tommy Hilfiger.
The Denim Trend
Right now, is the perfect time to embrace the trend! Personally, I will be seeking some different silhouette options for my jean collection. I have been a faithful skinny jean girl for years. I am looking forward to adding some high-waisted options in lighter shades, as well as patched worked denim, and some fun trousers for something a little more trendy. I have always been a huge fan of denim dresses, so don’t be surprised if I feature an HTWITW rocking one of these funky options. Another way to embrace the denim trend is the classic jean jacket. The look, across all brands, are all about the details. Find or recreate your own jacket with patches, pins, grommets, spray paint or anything else that will make it stand out.
Denim has become very creative. Not sure if it is the historical pride in the traditional fabric that designers are embracing the material or if its just a continued appreciation of 90’s culture, either way, denim in its various forms is here to stay, even for fall 2017.
How To Wear It
The beauty of denim is that is can be worn in many unique ways. Elevate your wardrobe with embellished denim to create a more sophisticated look. Embrace the rejuvenated 90’s vibe by keeping it classic in straight leg or boyfriend tailored trousers or go all out in a form-flattering pants suit.
