Go on to shop the seven biggest denim trends of 2017.
The step-hem trend has taken on new life in 2017 as it worked its way up to the waistline. This eye-catching detail is unique and so flattering.
"Shadow jeans" is a term we coined ourselves here at Who What Wear. This trend refers to darker paneling on the inside/outside of the bottom of the leg that looks like the coolest shadow we've ever seen.
We've been seeing a lot of exposed zippers, whether it be down the side of the leg, or along the back. Normally, zippers can give off an extremely edgy vibe, but this particular trend feels just right for a multitude of style personalities.
You know how the seams of denim look when you turn them inside-out? Well, that aesthetic is officially a trend and it looks extremely cool on skinny jeans and boyfriend jeans alike.
This style is definitely not for the faint of heart, but for those of you brave enough to try out this risky denim trend, we personally love styling it with a bodysuit and naked shoes to create the perfect going-out look.
We are seeing split seams pop up all over the place in a variety of styles, and the subtle detail is what can take any outfit from basic to forward, instantly. We particularly love the trend in a boot cut and cropped flare.
In case you needed another pair of jeans that are perfect for going out, we found them for you. Lace-up jeans add just the right amount of fashion-girl mystery you're looking for without appearing too over the top.
