You can never have too much of a good thing, and right now, our thing is denim. After being somewhat cast aside for the first time in recent history thanks trending wide-leg styles, and prominent tailoring, denim is officially back on the radar. Searches for jeans and denim trends have been on the up since the beginning of the year, and new looks (such as patchwork, horseshoe and criss-cross waistbands) have been well received by shoppers. The more we move towards spring, the more we notice denim-centric outfits coming back to the forefront.
In the past few weeks alone, the Who What Wear UK team has reported on the rise of slouchy jeans, pinpointed 5 easy jeans outfits that all revolve around your favourite blues, decoded how French women style jeans perfectly 24/7, worked out which pair of Arket jeans are worth ordering and much, much more. What we have discovered along our travels is that there is no “in” or “out” when it comes to silhouettes. Although it’s true that skinnies are slightly less in favour than they were a few years back, they’re not off the table. Instead, we’re seeing that all cuts, washes and colours are applicable to the here and now because it’s all about choosing the right style for you and your wardrobe. We’re living in a more democratic denim world, and that means flares are being adopted once more by stylish women in London, Paris, L.A. and beyond. But which shoe styles work the best with flare jeans? We have some theories on that.
