Are you there, Spring? It’s me, Margaret. Last month, we opened our hearts, our homes and our wardrobes to new season dressing. Spring trends and real-time buying made the tops of our to-do lists. But mother nature had other plans, and instead of ushering in higher hemlines and bare legs, the snow boots and puffer coats came sneaking back in like a bad ex.
As to not jump the gun this time around, consider this one word: transition. Sideline thoughts of flowy floral day dresses opt instead for polished and practical denim. Slow your skin-baring roll, invest in a solid pair of jeans and place your confidence in your wardrobe, not the weather.
Denim, you say. What’s new about my tried and true blue jeans? For starters, the cut. After seasons of searching for the *perfect* vintage fit, almost every designer has released a slouchy skinny this spring, and we can’t get enough. Once you’ve found the perfect fit, test out your wash – our new favorite offerings are naughties-inspired dark denim and creamy off-whites. We’ve rounded up Spring’s best denim trends, below.
1. The Slouchy Skinny
Had enough of every editor’s pins decked in inimitable vintage blue jeans? Well it’s time to bid farewell to that jealousy. Cult brand 7 For All Mankind has mastered the most flattering mom jean with their ‘Josephina’ cut. But if you’re in the mood for a splurge, no one does it better than NY-er Khaite.
2. The Dark Naughties Denim
Dust off your dark wash, indigo is absolutely in. From Calvin Klein to MaxMara and Tibi, the SS18 runways were ablaze with denim reminiscent of our Simple Life days. Dark, raw denim can look elevated on a night out, just pair with sparkling diamonds and a swipe of red lipstick.
3. The Creamy Dreamy
Ask any woman and she’ll tell you that finding the perfect pair of white jeans is a lifelong search. It seems that denim designers have heard our cries, issuing out perfectly off-white offerings in vintage cuts. We love Re/Done originals ‘The Stovepipe’ for a cant-go-wrong classic.
4. The Canadian Tux
It’s time to round up your rodeo blues – denim on denim is not only socially acceptable now, but it’s in vogue. But, you can’t just go for any pairing; there’s nothing worse than looking like a cast-off from Full House in too-light acid wash. To pull off the look, pick crisp denim in classic cuts and deep blues. Or, go for an all-white look that is undoubtedly fresh.
