Denim for this Fall is not for the Ordinary

Fall/Winter 2016 Denim Trends
Calling all of my bold spirits and not-so-perfect garment lovers: the denim trends of this Fall are in your favor! Denim has been slow moving in trends but they are picking up some speed lately. If you’re tired of “skinny” jeans, and flares aren’t for you, or heck, you’re just fashionably exciting, these trends may appeal to you.

Wide Leg Crop Cropped Denim Jeans Aamito Lagum Trend Fall 2016
1 / Replay’s Basinkim cropped jeans, $245 2 / Rachel Comey’s Bishop wide-leg cropped jeans,  $345 3/ Abercrombie & Fitch’s Cropped Stovepipe Jeans, $78

Wide-leg cropped jeans are quite the cut of jeans. They are not culottes (or if you remember gauchos, lol.) They are a cropped length, or “ankle grazer” length, with the wide leg silhouette. This pant is airy, and they can be a waist flattering fit like Rachel Comey’s pair above, or something loose with more of a boyish feel.

Embroidered Denim Jeans Blogger Michele Krusi Trend Fall 2016

Threaded on art and patches, embroidery on denim can be subtle and a cute accent or all out crazy.  High fashion designers like Gucci and Valentino have came out with thousand dollar embroidered denim items this past season (and of course I’ll let you Google that because it’s worth a search), and shops like ASOS are trying to get it to the mass. Embroidered denim jackets are also a big hit if you can find a really cool one. This is the trend that you can actually DIY if you’ve got a little sewing experience or just pick up a needle and thread if you’re ambitious.

Fringe Denim Jeans Blogger Laura Dittrich Trend Fall 2016
7 / Vale’s Run Free Fray Culottes, $167 8 / Fringe Denim Top on YooddStore, $49 9 / ChloĆ©’s Frayed Denim mini dress, $759

Fringed denim. Can I have a pair? Please, and now? Brand 3x1 has taken over fringed denim; their WM3 crop jeans have been spotted all over the recent Fashion Weeks. Other brands have put their spin on different denim silhouettes like culottes, dresses, and tops with accents of frayed and fringed hems. This is not like the raw hem trend either; it’s a more extreme version (go get you a pair lol.)
