Dressing up in summer denim
With the summer comes that perfect pair of denim to match those chilled summer vibes, but sometimes you need some inspiration to make sure your look is on-point in the sunshine. Not anymore.
To make sure you wardrobe is flawless this summer, here are some must have denim trends that you should be aware of. Retailers of cropped jeans for women – Trilogy Stores are here to show you there is a more sophisticated way to wear denim during the warmer months, and one that lets you team all your favourite fits with the hottest clothing trends of the season too!
Try straight and not skinny
Experimentation is a must this summer, so try to get out of the habit of those go-to skinny jeans. Higher rises and jeans with a looser fit are taking over from the skinny-leg phenomenon. Fashion is now championing a straight silhouette and a more relaxed fit – and this is fantastic news as we move into summer where skinny legging-like fits can often feel clingy, restrictive and uncomfortable.
Why you should wear them
Even though they’re a different fit, they work in a similar way to skinny jeans; don’t worry though, they’re more forgiving, which is good if you’ve got curvy hips – fuller thighs – and thick calves.
How to style these jeans
Keep the silhouette tight but not skinny through your hips and thighs; this will give you a boyfriend jean look without them feeling too loose. Our favourite straight leg jeans this summer – the Isabelle by AG, Jacqueline by Paige Denim and Elsa by Citizens of Humanity – all have cool, cropped legs making them perfect worn with heels and flats alike. We’ll be styling ours with embroidered blouses or classic shirting for a luxe yet laid-back feel.
Or try cropped jeans: As an alternative to skinny jeans, cropped jeans are now a trend in 2017. For SS17 our preference is AG’s Isabelle. This straight-leg jean is a more modern way to wear white denim thanks to its high-rise and cool released hem.
Styling with Isabelle
The Isabelle fit helps to create loose, wispy threads at ankle, which help to create a streamlined shape that is a skinny fit through the hip, thigh and leg.
Wearing these jeans
Often common with white denim, the Isabelle isn’t a stiff denim, which makes it great as an everyday pair of jeans. For weekends why not style with a chambray or colourful striped shirt tucked in for an effortless vibe. Dress up with boho, beaded blouses or off-the-shoulder tops for a chic, statement outfit.
Achieving a look that’s vintage: Authentic denims are on-trend this summer, so think vintage! Many brands have brought out ‘vintage’ collections to cater to demand, blending original fabrics with added comfort stretch for a modern feel and softer, lighter handle for summer. This trend for heritage-feel jeans isn’t going anywhere so invest now if you haven’t already.
Why we love them
You can match embellishments and embroidery with a pair of faded true-blue jeans, for that quintessential boho look. What’s even better, is that fashion accessories are one of the top trends for 2017.
