Denim and jeans were making a ripple in the pond of fashion in late 2016 but NOW they are making a splash coming into the new year. And I think for awhile there blue jeans and denim were getting over shadowed by leggings last year.
Then Khloe Kardashian teamed up with Good American and a resurgence of jeans and denim everything came back in 2017. Albeit I don't think that Khloe is 100% of the reason that denim is making a strong comeback. I think that the stores are just carrying a wider variety of jeans styles.
Blue jeans have different hems now with fringe, asymmetrical hems and super distressed designs. Designers have really stepped up the jean game by designing more unique jeans and using denim as chokers, shoes and bags.
So yes the jean and denim world have been reinvented and will never be the same. But denim is something that is kind of classic and has never really changed over the years. The material is still the same. The blue jean colours are all very similar. If you buy anything that is made from denim it's never going to go out of style.
All you have yo do is reinvent your denim. You can cut holes in it, splatter paint on it or just wear it a different way. Jeans are jeans and are going to be worn the same way--on the lower half of your body.
So I decided to wear my jean jacket a different way and it changed the stiff denim jacket look into something less boxy looking. Button the last button and pull the jacket down past your shoulders and voila! You have a off the shoulder denim jacket or a off the shoulder denim top!
Don't be afraid to reinvent your clothes. You don't have to buy trendy clothes to feel like you are fashion forward, you just have to take some ideas, work them out and wear it.
