Trend Report: Spring Denim
By Kate Jansen
As winter slowly melts into spring, it’s time to shed leggings and sweats for this season’s latest denim trends.
White Denim: The old fashion proverb to not wear white pants after Labor Day does not apply this spring! White cropped skinny jeans are definitely a wardrobe must. Paired with patent heels, a flowy blouse, statement jewelry and a blazer, traditionally taboo jeans could look sophisticated and chic. For a more casual look, pair white denim with a simple V-neck tee and a menswear watch.
Printed Denim: Last fall’s sensation has hit major retailers again this spring. Printed denim is another wardrobe staple. They come in a variety of patterns and colors that are sure to revive your outfit. My favorite printed denim are polka dot shorts from Free People and pinstriped shorts from Madewell.
Distressed/Vintage Denim: Do you have a pair of ancient boyfriend jeans with a hole in the knee? Don’t throw them away–break them out this spring! Distressed, aged denim pants look great when paired with neon sandals and a neutral top. Cuff the bottoms of too-long pants to create a more unique look.
Denim Jackets: I am obsessed with my denim jacket. What I love the most about these jackets are their timelessness. I’ve had mine for five years and it hasn’t gone out of style. I love pairing denim jackets and vests with floral summer dresses. If you’re bold enough to pull off the denim-on-denim look, try pairing your jean jacket with printed denim.
