Mum Jeans, Frays, Crop: 5 Denim Trends Coming To A Wardobe Near You

Farewell straight leg. It’s time to welcome mum jeans, frays, crop and more to the family. Yep, you now have at your fashion disposal a new generation of styles to build a lasting relationship with. Here are the 5 denim trends coming to a wardrobe near you!

Stylist Claire Fabb from Style by Yellow Button has her finger on the 14 ounce rivet when it comes to fashion. She knows what we’ll be wearing next, before it hits the shops. And, in support of Jeans for Genes Day, Claire has kindly shared the top trending jeans styles about to hit our hips. Now you can score the ‘best dressed award’ this Friday, August 5, wearing your jeans to raise funds for the Children’s Medical Research Institute and look like an early adopter in the process.

Mum Jeans

Remember the 80s, when high-waisted, belt cinched and baggy upper legs were on every gal’s hips? Yep, they’re back. And they have a slightly insulting nickname – ‘mum jeans’. “These are so popular right now,” says Claire. “They’re such a laid back look and can be really comfortable. If you’re going for a mum jean be sure to choose a pair with a high waist and avoid wearing a long layered top. Instead, wear a tight top tucked in or something that sits at the waist.”

Cropped Jeans

Ankle biters or French chic? The fashion set say très chic, darling! “I’m loving the French inspired crop jean at the moment – it’s very Jane Birkin from back in the day!” says Claire. “The important thing for this look is that less is more. If you’re donning this look wear it with a small pump or basic ballet slipper.” Cropped jeans come in a load of style, from skinny legs cut from stretch denim that sculpt your curves, to slouchy boyfriend fits and even mum jeans.”

Flares

Yep, prepare to embrace the season’s 70s feel with curvaceous flares – a fast-track way to add shape and balance to slim and straight figures. The new spin on the flare is not super-exaggerated. Rather, it’s slim at the hips and thighs, coming out only around the calf. A little more sophisticated and elegant than the hippy style, so it suits most bodies. Cuts that sit high on the waist will amp the appearance of longer, leaner legs. “This look is back and it’s the easiest way to look taller or slimmer,” says Claire. “Wear flares with a heel or boot to add elevation.”

Frayed Hem

Don’t be a-frayed. This trend comes in all styles and from minor fray detailing to exaggerated. “These jeans are another gorgeous look, especially if it’s going to be a sunny afternoon as they look best when showing a bit of bare skin,” says Claire. “Wear with a simple sandal and have your ankle showing for understated cool elegance. The perfect transeasonal look, cropped jeans should be a staple coming into summer.”

Jean & Sneaker Combo

Choose from slouchy boyfriend jeans to skinny leg and mid-waisted, then sneak on a sneaker and go! “The sporty look is fashion forward,” says Claire. “This looks best with a cropped jean as you want to avoid the Jerry Seinfeld look. Wearing with a simple white sneaker is a good look, however, feel free to play around as there are some cool sneakers around at the moment. Why not try a bold gold or even a pattern?!”
