Back to School Denim Trends

Women’s fashion is constantly changing, but one time honored favorite when it comes to the fall is denim. Denim is universal; it’s great for casually lounging around campus or looking sharp as you head to your first class, and it can even be dressed up for that party you’ve been looking forward to all week. Having a staple pair means you can work them into nearly any outfit in a pinch, but this season denim is showing up more often as a statement piece and it’s refusing to fade into the background.

Mom Jeans are Universal

The vintage look has been a favorite among denim wearers this past season, and it seems like fall will be no different. With the ability to flatter any body type, while also remaining super comfortable, The Mom Jean trend caters to everyone. Plus, they’re the perfect transition garment; wear them with low rise sneakers or sandals in early autumn, or opt for a pair of ankle boots and an anorak as the temperatures begin to drop.

Trade in Your Summer Jeans for Dark Wash Denim

Migrating toward richer colors in your wardrobe is a common strategy as fall rolls in, but if you’re looking to prolong the life of some of your lighter garments, dark wash is the way to go. Choose a basic design and silhouette to let them fade into the background of your ensemble, or allow them to be the focal point of a look with a side stripe or distressed rips.

It’s All in the Details

Basic jeans are great when the statement piece of your outfit is elsewhere, but sometimes a little embellishment goes a long way. A bit of embroidery can still be worn with a simple print without being overwhelming, and unique additions along your jeans’ seams can help you stand out this semester!

Denim isn’t Limited to Your Average Jeans

Jean jackets have always been a fall favorite, but the denim trend isn’t even stopping there this season. Miniskirts and overalls are making their way back to the forefront of back to school fashion and denim is appearing in more unconventional ways than ever. Bodycon silhouettes like mini dresses and even jumpsuits seem to be a recent favorite among those headed back to campus in style.

Mix and Match Your Denim for an Allover Look

As denim becomes more popular among garments other than jeans, it’s becoming a trend to pair denim with even more denim. You can easily try this trend with a matching set, such as a cropped jacket and high waisted pants. If you’re pairing two different denims together, keeping them on the lighter side let’s you break up the uniformity with a vibrant top. However, mixing light and dark denim has been a favorite when it comes to the patchwork trend, which we can’t wait to see more of.
