Several denim trends are sweeping the fashion world this Spring. Here are several of them. This Spring's denim trends are all about the 70's! All of the below looks are available at Forever21.com! Simply search for the name of the piece in the search engine on Forever21.com to purchase!
Jumpsuits have always been popular, but this Spring opt for denim jumpsuit. I'm loving this cropped jumpsuit from Forever 21. It's flowly, and gives a bohemian vibe. Layer it with a kimono for a boho look or add a grunge band graphic tee underneath for an edgier look. If you're unsure how to style the outfit, start with the way it's styled on Forever21.com for inspiration! If you live in a colder climate where Spring weather is (typically) months away, opt for a long sleeved denim jumpsuit. I have a similar jumpsuit in khaki that I love to wear.
I love overalls, as you'll see in a later post. This overall dress is giving me a true 90's vibe, and can be worn in so many different ways! I would pair the dress with a black striped turtleneck and my extra large fedora. To accesorize, I would add my yin yang choker (because who says you can't wear a choker over a turtleneck) and either my leopard or white Doc Martin style boots or a pair of heeled black boots. If you're willing to take a fashion risk, add a pair of black tights underneath (I would choose my pair of lace fishnet tights) or a pair of black knee high socks. If you own a pair of Jeffrey Campbell like boots, they would pair perfectly with this dress!
Put away your denim button down shirt, and pick up the new take on a denim shirt, in a crop top form. Distressed denim has been making a comeback in the fashion world for the past few years, and is shown in the frayed look of the top. Denim shirts are incredibly versitile, so this top can become a major staple in your Spring wardrobe. I would pair this look with a flared jeans to give a denim on denim look. The Contemporary Denim Culottes below go perfect with this top. Finish off the boho look with a tan floppy hat, and clogs. Or add a leather jacket and tall leather boots for a grunge look.
I hate capris, if they're in your closet, toss them out. This Spring's capri pant is available in a gaucho style (you remember those pants you wore in middle school) and has a distressed look. This pant will look perfect with the top above. Or if you aren't quite ready for a denim on denim look, choose a white/cream turtleneck or a white/cream off the shoulder top. If you want add a hat or put some ways in your hair to give a 70's vibe. I would select a floral headband for headwear. For shoes, a brown chunky heeled boot would work great or a pair of gladiator sandals that lace up around the leg. I would wear my tan gladiator heels that I purchased from Shop Hopes with this pant.
Skinny jeans no more, flared denim is back! I love flared pants; they give you a sleek and slender look and give the allusion of a long leg, when paired with the right shoe. Any top goes with flared denim. I always prefer to tuck my tops into my flared jeans to give off an hour glass shape, as most flared denim is also high waisted, perfect for slimming the waistline. A turtleneck is my go-to look for flared pants, and suede or faux fur vest creates the perfect layering look for Early Spring. However, if you're not ready to go out and buy a new shirt for your flares jeans, pair the jeans with a V-Neck shirt and tuck it in your jeans. Add a heeled boot, wedged sandal, or clog shoe, oversized earrings and a cute hat, floral headband, or a thick tie back headband and you've got yourself an easy made outfit for any occasion. If you're feeling risky, tie a printed scarf around your neck like an ascot or a bow and create a true 70's look with your V-Neck tee.
