New Jeans Trends
Phew! Finally a pair of jeans that won’t cause muffin top, doesn’t reveal our new thong from Victoria’s Secret every time we bend over, and covers that lower back tattoo we are now having second thoughts about. Suitable for most body types, the new high waisted jeans are leg lengthening and torso trimming – and they scream that you are so in with the newest fashion trend.
- Wear with snug sweaters, tucked-in chiffon blouses and slim-cut vests.
- Accessorize with clogs, boots, heels, wide braided belts
- Find a multitude of high waisted denim & pants by your favorite designers at Revolve including the pair of Tag jeans above.
Lately there seems to have been a gender role reversal and the lines have become blurred in fashion as far as what women should wear and what men should wear. Now we are seeing guys wear makeup and girl’s jeans, and girls who wear menswear like ties and trousers. We personally love those little menswear vests for women that are out right now – just bought one and it is hot! There is something sexy about wearing something traditionally seen on the opposite gender.
Cross-gender clothing is quickly becoming a hot trend instead of a rare occurrence. Obviously, wearing girl’s jeans does not make a guy gay. Guys have admitted that they sometimes prefer the fit of girl’s jeans because of the slender lines and cuts of the denim. There was even a recent discussion men who like women’s jeans in the HonestForum – why should men feel uncomfortably trying on women’s jeans if they prefer the fit? The fashion industry has begun to pick up on this because now designers like Diesel jeans, Chip & Pepper, and Armani Exchange are presenting new skinny and more fitted jeans for men. We think skinny jeans are very rockstar looking on men AND women!

We all knew denim was hot, but in Chanel‘s recent fashion show for the 2008 lineup, Karl Lagerfeld showed us that he loves the versatility of denim. His show had lots of Americana influences with stars and stripes in a red, white and blue theme throughout the show. We love the high waisted jeans on the model to the right!
According to what we are seeing on the runway, it looks like rolled pants legs may be the new trend for Spring/Summer 2008. Doesn’t this remind you somewhat of the pegged leg jeans look from the 80’s? We don’t think we’ll roll our jeans unless its going to flood.
