2017 is denim’s best year yet. But before we go there, let’s take a minute to reflect on the evolution of jeans. It all began in the late 1800s when Levis Strauss teamed up with the tailor Jacob Davis to craft a pair of durable “work pants.” Who knew decades later they’d become one of the most commonly worn garments in history?! Over the years we’ve witnessed this classic pant change with the times – for better and for worse. Fast forward to 2017 and “mom jeans” are back in style and the more rips in your pants the better. But it doesn’t stop there. Over the next few weeks I will be showcasing the latest and greatest in jeans and how you can go about styling them. Today we’ll cover the side slit jean trend.
Across the board, unfinished hens are IN. From rips, fringes, high-low hems, to slits, you name it it’s out there. Today we feature side slit jeans from the one and only Storets. I am in love with this trend because it is a comfortable alternative to dress pants. If you didn’t see the back pockets, you could easily mistake these stunners for a pair of powder blue slacks! That’s the kind of versatility I always look for.
When styling trendy jeans it’s important to consider their level of fancy. For example, destroyed or distressed jeans are casual. Pearl embellished jeans are dressy. In this case, side slit jeans fall right in between. Fancy is my middle name so I paired these bottoms with a sheer crop top. As you can see, I could literally swap the jeans for dress pants and the outfit would have the same affect! Next time I’ll go down the casual route and pair them with an embellished tee and mules or fishnet stockings and pumps during the fall. What is your favorite denim trend this year?! Stay tuned for Friday’s look featuring “stem hem” jeans.
