Denim, Denim, Denim

Who doesn’t love denim? It was huge in the 80’s and 90’s, and it is STILL huge today! While I think it is important to always have a good pair of jeans in your closet, the trend for denim just keeps growing and growing. Before it was just jeans–now you have overalls, jean skirts, shorts, etc.

Remember when denim overalls were a thing? Well, now it is a BIGGER thing. Denim overalls have made their way back into style. And I couldn’t be more excited!

The most amazing thing about denim is that they are a classic fall staple! From the return of the bootcut jean to even the edgy embellished styles, denim is a MAJOR trend right now, especially for Fall 2017.

I thought that I would share with you all some of my favorite fall denim styles. Shall we get started?

While I am not brave enough to wear this style, it definitely seems to be a trendsetter. I am talking about Cropped denim jeans. It seems many celebrities are pulling off this look. The cool thing about these jeans is that you can easily show off your shoes– pair them with some cute sandals while the weather is still hot, or pair them with some ankle booties as the weather cools down.

Boyfriend jeans are still going strong. These are actually my favorites lately! I just love how comfy they are, plus you can dress them up or down. Pair them with some heels and a cute top and you are ready for a night on the town. Or simply pair them with converse, sandals, even cute booties and you’re ready for a casual day with your friends or chilling at the beach.

Skinny jeans are a must-pair. Personally, I feel it is important to have at least one or two pairs of skinny jeans. However, I probably own close to 4 pairs of skinny jeans. They run from white to black, to light denim, to dark denim, to burgandy, to red, I even have a couple high-waisted skinny jeans. If you haven’t guessed already, jeans are a HUGE part of my style. What I love about skinny jeans is that they are quite versatile– sometimes I like to pair them with cute booties, a sweater or flannel. While other times I go for a more relaxed look such as converse and a t-shirt. Jeans in general go with just about anything– there is no limit!

Denim overalls have made a major comeback! I remember as a little kid how big denim overalls were, and how everyone wanted a pair. Now that they have made their way back into style, adults are taking a whole new spin to denim overalls! The cool part about these is that they are super laid back and casual. I like to pair them with an off-the-shoulder top, crop top, or even a body suit. While there are so many ways to wear overalls– fashion is something I am so passionate about that I am always trying to step-up the cute factor.  I love that you can find a pair of short denim overalls or you can wear a pair of long jean overalls.

Denim dresses are totally trending right now. These adorable trends just keep getting bigger and bigger, and it’s difficult to keep up sometimes. Luckily, I am here to help you out. For starters, this adorable off-the-shoulder denim dress from Forever21 is to DIE for! It is so basic, and cute, and yet it looks super comfy– which is ultimately what everyone wants. You want to look cute but comfy!

Denim shorts are my go-to style, especially in the summer. What I love about denim shorts is that you can wear them to the beach– put on a cute bikini and just your shorts and you’re good to go. You could throw on a cute top or t-shirt, some high-waisted shorts, and sandals for a more casual look. You could even dress them up– sometimes I like to put on a pair of wedges, a crop top or something flowy and my high-waisted jean shorts and you are instantly ready for a day outgoing–perhaps wine tasting with the girls or late girls night out!

And lastly, one of my all-time fave denim trends has to be the classic denim jacket! A few years ago, I was in San Clemente, California, and I decided to go thrift store shopping. I walked into this one thrift shop, and as I was looking around I didn’t really see anything– and right before I was about to walk out the door this jacket caught my eye. I walked over and picked it up and noticed it was a DKNY denim jacket. It has a few tears in the sleeves, but I think that is what I liked about it. It had a story– whatever that story may be. I instantly had to buy it– and honestly, I have had this jacket every since. I pretty much wear it with just about anything.

It seems that denim jackets are a major trend right now, and I think they will be for a long time.

Without a doubt, denim is the trend you can rely on the most– it is so versatile, and it is a trend that seems to never go out of style. So the next time you decide to buy a new pair of jeans– think of all the ways you can style it and how it isn’t just a pair of jeans– its a must-have fashion staple!
