No news this: what is currently trending in the fashion world may see a dip in a year and top off the fashion charts decades later. But if there’s one item that has seen a high through it all, it’s got to be a humble pair of blue jeans. While several trends come and go, a pair of denims is forever. And this view has been reiterated by Lyst, the global fashion search platform used by millions of shoppers every year. According to the data collated from their annual fashion report (which was tracked from more than 100 million searches by 80 million shoppers in 120 countries), in 2017, the word denim was searched on the Internet every two seconds. Surprised much!?
Given how popular this piece is around the world, we at WODROB decided to list out six the denim styles that you must have in your closet. We’ve also rounded up a few denims that you can get your hands on, in case you’re looking to upgrade your wardrobe right now. Scroll down and get shopping!
Skinny jeans have hands down been the favourite for most fashionistas. They enhance the curves and are also very easy to style.
WODROB Styling Tip: Practically, any top works well with a pair of skinny jeans. If you’re looking to keep it proportional, opt for a top with a flowy silhouette to add volume to this look.
Straight Leg Jeans
With a super-relaxed fit, straight leg jeans help lengthen your silhouette making you look taller.
WODROB Styling Tip: Team it up with a white shirt and cinch your waist with a belt for a structured look. You can pair it with ankle-length boots or flats depending on the look you’re opting for.
The opening for the leg is slightly wider than usual. The name comes from the idea of pairing it with boots hence the flare towards the hem.
WODROB Styling Tip: If you believe ‘more is more’, then pull off a retro look with a bell sleeve top or a bodysuit and bootcut jeans. No points for guessing that a pair of boots will go with it.
Androgyny in fashion is a popular trend for a while now. These derive the name boyfriend jeans given it’s a style borrowed from men.
WODROB Styling Tip: To attain a cool, laid-back vibe, team it up with tee and sneakers. Throw over a varsity jacket for an athleisure look.
The bottom of these jeans have a large flare and is tighter towards the hip and thigh.
WODROB Styling Tip: Team up a lace top with your flared jeans for a feminine look. Add a pair of kitten heels to finish off the look.
Low Waist Jeans
In the early 2000s, we witnessed this pair of jeans on just about all our fashionistas and pop stars. And now, they’re back in fashion again.
WODROB Styling Tip: A good fit is important when trying to pull off a pair of low waist jeans. Though crop tops are a favourite piece to pair these with, you can also opt for a camisole top for an off-duty look.
