Hello, October. Hello pumpkin spice latte, crunching through leaves, Friday night football, and yes - hello, denim!
It’s time to dig into the details on what’s happening in denim for the season - including some old and some new trends!
Whew. A sigh of relief for you ‘skinny lovers’ is that the trend doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Whatever TYPE of skinny you feel best in - from super skinny with a little bit of stretch, to more of a cigarette cut that is a little more ‘breathable’ - skinnies are staying put. Posh has skinnies from all of the major brands, and can help you find the perfect pair for your shape. Keep in mind that booties are still hot, so if you haven’t tried your skinny jeans with a bootie of some sort, this may be your opportune moment.
LIVED-IN & LOVEABLE
We all know what happens when you’ve had your favorite pair of denim for YEARS. The softness, the worn seams, the signs of wear that show you’ve LIVED a little in them. That’s what distressed denim does, well, instantly! Not only can you see distressed examples on nearly every 'celebrity getting coffee’ instagram - you can see them in most any setting, depending on what you pair them with. Want to give your distressed denim an instant upgrade? Pair them with flowing fabric tops, or fitted items such as a classic blazer.
Speaking of playing ‘dress up’ - dark denim is still one of the most ‘dressed up’ styles of denim there is. This fall, we’re seeing LOTS of deep blues like navy and indigo in other fashion items as well as denim. And naturally, pairing dark denim with the ’new’ fall palette of jewel tones like burgundy, emerald or violet - works so well! Want to dress up your denim even further? Throw on a gold bangle or drop earrings with a little bit of sparkle. Dark denim makes feminine, flirty jewelry shine even more.
YOUR BEST BOYFRIEND
Boyfriend jeans are a lot like…boyfriends. They come in lots of styles and shapes, depending on what fits YOU best. We’re still seeing quite a few boyfriend style denims in every wash and length you can imagine. Nothing feels better for a cozy, comfy Midwest weekend than a pair of boyfriend denims, paired with a cute bootie, cozy oversized sweater, and a baseball cap. That’s our uniform, and we’re sticking with it for now :)
Finally, you know we had to mention flares. Actually, from a modern bootcut with a SLIGHT flare, to total, all-out bell bottomed flares, they are back in a big way this fall! Flares are not only fun to wear, they really do flatter a ton of figure types. Wondering how to best wear your flares? Actually, it’s all about proportion. Flares look great paired with more tailored tops, and generally work best with a chunkier shoe. For those of you with a real flare for trends might even want to try the newer cropped flare look! For the best figure flattering shape, make sure your flares are more fitted from the waist to the knee, then gently widen toward the bottom! And watch those hemlines. They should just skim the ground! There you have it, some of the best trends in denim for this fall. And thankfully, through Saturday, October 10 - you can get all of our premium denim on sale with our once a year ‘denim does good’ promotion going on in Sioux Falls!
