Whether you love denim or have a love-hate relationship with it, one thing's for sure: 2017 will be the year of the demi denim trend. Thanks to Ukrainian designer Ksenia Schnaider, the skinny-meets-baggy jean style is gaining popularity. And if you ask us, the unique silhouette, while daring, is the perfect solution for those days when you just can't decide between a slim leg and an oversize fit.
The bold design is part Bermuda shorts, part skinny jeans, and there's a lot of distressing involved. The jeans sit on the natural waistline, flare out slightly in the front (from the back they look like a straight-leg style), and are torn at the knee, exposing some skin. From the knee down, the silhouette takes on a straight-leg cut and the hemline is frayed. This jean style has cool girl written all over it, and we've already seen Gigi Hadid embrace the two-in-one layered look, so it's only a matter of time (aka next month at New York Fashion Week) before our favorite street style stars take the denim trend to new heights.
