Style: Blues Clues

Get the skinny on which pairs to purchase–and how to wear to look instantly on-trend.

 

When it comes to fashion, there’s no such thing as shopping “easy” denim. Most recently, high waists have trumped low waists, wide-legged styles have scooped skinnies, and salespeople seem to have a vocabulary all their own (who made up “jeggings”?). While the classics are still cool, simply relying on your Levi’s 501s would mean missing out—especially this season when denim is defining the hottest trends. From retro fl ares to rainbow-bright washes, a number of new denim styles will replace your basic blues. So, now’s the time to indulge in denim—lucky for you, we’ve done the leg work to compile a list of exactly what’s sexy this second.

FLARES
For the must-have ’70s-inspired look, throwback bell-bottoms are essential.

SHADES
From neutrals to brights, anything other than blue looks of-the-moment.

CROPS

Slim-cut capris and roomy gauchos in worn-in to indigo-blue washes look new again.
