You own the perfect pair of skinny jeans in three different washes, have found a straight-leg style you’ve been wearing on repeat, and even claim ownership of a pair of embroidered jeans packed away for Coachella. But if you’re after denim that will bring something new to your wardrobe, get ready to try two-tone jeans.
Beloved by fashion girls like Pernille Teisbaek and Aimee Song and fully embraced by street style stars, this denim trend—which has been around for a few seasons, but is more prominent than ever right now—is undeniably cool and lust-worthy. Each pair makes a statement, but we also love that you can focus on one feature depending on the style you wear. A pair that is darker along the side seams will lengthen your legs while a deep indigo hue at the waist will point the attention there.
