With a myriad of cuts and decades of styles to choose from, denims staying power is undisputed. Nothing defines an era like the jeans people were wearing in that epoque. That said, we all have our proclivities towards certain decades style that suit our taste and physique. We don’t all have a body that works for a late 2000s emo skinny jean but those who rock it couldn’t imagine switching their denim uniform for Jane Birkin 70s flare. Our denim identity is important.
On the runway for fall, the variety is in abundance from low slung wide legs to high waisted boot cuts. Designers are meeting and embracing the new conversations of inclusivity. Not everyone was born with the bum for a second skin pair of jeans nor does everyone want to be. Denim is an opportunity to highlight our waist down features we love to flaunt. If you lean more towards classic, there are plenty of dark denim skinny’s that work. Try these with a chic heel or tucked into a knee high stacked boot. If you love a more languid silhouette, try a flare such as the ones Natasha Ramsey showed us at Chloe. For those smaller in stature, a high waisted straight leg cut mixed with a platform heel can give an inch or two to any outfit. Finally, for the more experimental type, Gucci is offering up a wicked pair of loose slashed lovely denim for fall. Andy Warhol famously proclaimed “I want to die with my blue jeans on”. We get it. We might not need to choose our final cut yet but it’s always nice to make a choice that works for the long haul.
