It's no secret that denim hits high on our list of must-have pieces. I tend to slip into a pair of jeans nearly every day of the week. In the last year alone, I've put a number of silhouettes to the test. Cropped flares? Yep. Vintage-inspired straight-leg jeans? They were pretty much the only thing I wore all summer. And with a brand-new season on the horizon, what denim trends can we expect to see in 2018?
After looking to the spring runways and cool street style girls, I've got a few predictions to make. One style quickly gaining popularity is jeans with exposed stitching—making for a bold design that feels fresh and cool. The shift from light-wash to slimming dark-wash denim is also becoming more prominent. And with '90s-inspired baggy styles popping up everywhere, skinny jeans just might lose their spot on the list of staple denim. Here, shop the cool denim trends we'll be seeing everywhere in 2018.
