There’s no time like the present to break away from the norm and try out new trends. And of course, that mantra includes your denim selection. While tried-and-true jeans are a must for any gal’s wardrobe, we’re guessing you already have *quite* a few pairs of said tried-and-true-jeans. Let’s shake it up a bit, shall we?
Instead of opting for your standard, hum-drum jeans, why not try out one of these killer new denim trends instead?
In 2017, denim is getting all sorts of sartorial love from your favorite designers. That means major upgrades in the hems department, plus a renewed passion for patchwork. We’re also seeing a sharp shift away from skinny jeans towards comfier, cozier straight legs and boyfriends cuts, which is cause enough for our legs to break out into an uncontrollable happy dance.
Without further ado, these are the denim trends you should ~defintely~ (read: abso-freaking-lutely!) try for 2017.
1Cropped & Frayed
These bad boys are an instant classic, with a flattering cropped-flare shape and a raw-edge hem. And with fans like Emma Roberts, they’re already cool-girl-approved.
