Diversity in Denim

Formerly a staple of the ultimate rock stars, skinny jeans have been ruined by the stretch of jeggings and are now rejected in favour of more relaxed styles. Thanks to designers such as Vetements, the fashion industry lusts for thick, authentic denim in a range of styles to fit their look of the day. Style Counsel presents its guide to navigating this new era, where the skinny jeans is ‘basic’ and the more volume your jeans have, the better.

1. Vintage Fits

Retro-inspired, stiff denim has become a coveted item in a fashion wardrobe. Demand for vintage Levis has been matched by new designs from Frame and MiH jeans.

2. (Cropped) Flares

Show off your latest shoe purchase with this style. Set just above the ankle, with a high waist and paired with a block heel, these jeans can be flattering and are the ‘new cool.’

3. Denim Culottes

This sounds horrendous but fear not some have managed the seemingly impossible feat of making denim culottes look good. For Winter, try pairing them with ankle boots whilst for Summer, pair with some delicate heels for a trendy contrast.

5. Hems

When the denim style is so distinct, designers are not creating distressed styles, only at the hems. Here you can find frayed hems, high-low ‘step’ hems and many more!
