Evolving Denim Trends – How to wear them now!


The engineered jeans, stone washed jeans, classic fit, boot-cut, flared, slim fit, skinny, straight fit, distressed jeans, and denim cut-offs – who would have thought that a pair of denims can be categorized under such terms.
Denims started off as utility pants made for the working class for their durability and inexpensiveness. Iconic stars like Elvis Presley and Marlon Brando were amongst those who made the jeans look 'cool' and, eventually, made it popular amongst teens. The ideals of comfort and warmth have transitioned into something super sexy, skinny, and bootylicious.

From classic mom jeans to distressed ripped jeans, denims have come a long way. The 50s started out with everyday comfort jeans and then, with the evolution of rock culture, the high waist skinnies dominated. Audrey Hepburn was the initiator of the ankle length pants/jeans style. Bell bottom jeans and stone washed jeans were the fashion choices for the 70s funk and pop culture. The 90s started off with the awful 'lowest' baggy jeans trend but later on, the high-waist straight fit denim caught on. The F.R.I.E.N.D.S cast (Rachel and Monica) made the straight fit jeans with crop top really popular.
Segue to the 21st century, the jeans community is trending globally. Celebs like Miley Cyrus have been sporting mom jeans and baggy jeans. Sarah Jessica Parker is the reason for making the boyfriend jeans our wardrobe staple.

Trust these tips to make your faded distressed denims look uber chic and fashionable.:)


The Classic High Rise



Sarah Jessica Parker carries off this classic pair of denims with a crop top and spiked heels. For a sporty twist, wear it with a cropped tee and a pair of sneakers.


Mom Jeans



Mom jeans have made a strong comeback and the streets of London are adorning the mom jeans in style. Check out Miley Cyrus teaming this pair with a chic blazer. For a comfort look, pair it with a bralet and a kimono.



The Boot Cut Denim



Inspired by bell bottoms, boot-cut denims are perfect for skinny or apple shaped women. Wear them with wedges or heels and they instantly add inches to your shape.


The Boyfriend Jeans



Always add a touch of feminity when wearing a pair of boyfriend jeans. This style helps you to balance out the loose fit of the jeans. Pair them with pointy heels and curl up the ends for a chic look.


The Slouchy/Baggy Jeans


After the 90s trend of “drop-down” baggy jeans, this style has made a comeback and petite girls are wearing slouchy jeans again. Check how Miley Cyrus wears them with an edgy rock chic look.

Even though denim jeans have evolved a lot, a classic pair of jeans is all you need to strut any look and to pin you as a fashionista. :)
