Denim has probably been in fashion since the day it was invented. People love practical, comfortable and stylish things and denim is definitely characterized by these. Denim can be sexy or elegant, edgy or tough – all depends on the fashion season and the character of the wearer. For Fall/ Winter 2012/ 2013 designers have left a lot of great styles behind but they do offer us a few really wonderful ones instead.
Denim Trends for Fall/ Winter 2012/ 2013
Colored denim. Colored denim has been in vogue since spring, but if for the warmer seasons designers presented pastel-colored and bright pieces, for Fall/ Winter 2012/ 2013 they advise us to try darker and more practical hues. Brown, burgundy, wine and plum are the best, but you can also experiment with earthy tones or deep blue ones for the same effect.
Cropped jeans. Super-long and wide-leg jeans are in the past. Designers offer us a variety of cropped denim as a change. Cut just above the ankle, mid-calf or below the knee, these jeans will look best with high heels. Heels will not only lengthen your silhouette (which is essential with this type of denim), they will also add a bit of glamour and sexiness to your look.
Ripped denim. It might not look very neat but ripped denim is getting trendier and trendier. And it’s no longer restricted to jeans only. We have seen lots of ripped shirts, jackets and shorts on the runway and those were combined with elegant blouses, lovely brooches in shape of flowers or bugs, and even sunglasses adorned with shining crystals.
Cowboy-style denim. Wild West comes as inspiration for Fall/ Winter 2012/ 2013 fashion season. Not only cowboy hats are now trendy, Western denim is also quite hot. Look for denim pieces adorned with embroidery, fringe and contrast details. Keep accessories minimal.
Denim jackets. We all wore denim jackets in the 90s and it was cool, but then this piece of clothing somehow disappeared, and we have seen it occasionally through the years. However, it’s time to bring it back and make it a daywear classic. Denim jackets don’t have to be boring, make them stand out by wearing them with items other girls would never dare to mix. Pair it with pants, fancy shirts and youthful tops, try it over an evening dress or a sexy blouse. There are plenty of options, you just have to finds yours.
Double denim. While all fashion books and stylists say double denim is a big no-no for a fashionista, designers have another opinion. They have reinvented the double denim trend and made it clean, fresh and modern. Do not restrict yourself to a combination of jeans and matching jackets any more. Experiment with denim shirts, cut-offs and accessories. Change silhouettes, play with colors. Double denim is always risky but if you do everything right that risk will pay off.
