Jeans for women 2017.From interesting finishes and unconventional cuts to modern, size-inclusive labels, denim is in an exciting place right now. There’s a lot of variety and even more creativity happening in the industry. That said, a good number of denim trends that made baby steps in 2017 will likely hit peak ubiquity in 2017 while others that hit hard (Frankenstein jeans, we’re looking at you) will likely become less prevalent.Here, some ideas if you’re looking to build a better denim wardrobe in the new year.Following a boom in demand for vintage Levi’s and other old-school jeans, brands like Frame, MiH Jeans, and Khaite (a new label) are releasing their own ultra-stiff, retro-inspired denim. While breaking them in can be a process, the structured fit is a fresh and flattering alternative to the paper-thin stretchy fabric that has dominated shelves for years. Your bum will thank you, trust us.Hard-earned fading is one thing, but we’re tired of the machine-made, dialed-in distressing you see on every other pair of jeans. Next year, break in a pair yourself or go for a deeper, darker wash. Or, for something new entirely, try a pair of jeans in a hard white, not-quite-white, or an earthy tan hue. These neutral-color jeans still go with everything in your closet—try a pair this winter with an oversize black sweater and black boots— while appearing more like an “outfit” than your standard baby blues. If you were to look at snaps of It girls last year, it’s not skinny jeans you’d see but rather looser and flared finds. That’s why so many trend experts (including us!) discussed the end of skinnies once and for all. But to be totally honest, as Kendall Jenner and Olivia Palermo recently showcased, the style has become more of a classic staple rather than something that needs to be completely phased out.So in honor of the return of skinnies, we’re showing you nine fresh ways to wear this denim silhouette this year.
