The Denim Trend Changing the Scene

Whether you love denim or have a love-hate relationship with it, one thing’s for sure: 2017 will be the year of the demi denim trend. Thanks to Ukrainian designer Ksenia Schnaider, the skinny-meets-baggy jean style is gaining popularity. And if you ask us, the unique silhouette, while daring, is the perfect solution for those days when you just can’t decide between a slim leg and an oversize fit.

The bold design is part Bermuda shorts, part skinny jeans, and there’s a lot of distressing involved. The jeans sit on the natural waistline, flare out slightly in the front from the back they look like a straight-leg style, and are torn at the knee, exposing some skin. From the knee down, the silhouette takes on a straight-leg cut and the hemline is frayed. This jean style has cool girl written all over it, and we’ve already seen Gigi Hadid embrace the two-in-one layered look, so it’s only a matter of time (aka next month at New York Fashion Week) before our favorite street style stars take the denim trend to new heights.

Some Serious Trends, Guys are secretly loving!

The best thing about fashion is being able to dress completely for yourself, putting on what makes you feel your absolute best. However, getting an outsider’s perspective never hurt either and that’s exactly what the fashionistas at Who Wore What did. Who Wore What completed a survey of a handful of men and women on their perspective of what looks great to them on the female body. We were pretty surprised at the responses… the current trends they liked on women included ones like “statement sweatshirts” and “pantsuits.” Shocking, we know!

Perhaps, we’d underestimated the opposite sex’s ability to appreciate the finer points of fashion. Duly impressed, Who Wore What compiled the best responses and we thought we would share these trends with you. We think that you should not only applaud young ladies and men on the streets for their trend savvy suggestions but also you should invest in these trends ASAP. So get ready to see the shocking opinions of what guys & your fellow femme’s secretly are loving on you!

Of course fashion is about self representation and being able to dress for one’s self is the most important and influential part of the fashion industry, however we can not deny that hearing the perspectives of others helps determine some of our fashion statements. Maybe you weren’t too sure about wearing oversized sweaters or fitted sweatpants… but hearing that these trends are catching eyes might crack your shell to giving them a try. Either way its about what makes you comfortable, and what makes you feel good both inside and out. We hope you give these trends a go, and be careful not to break any necks on the way.
