7 Fall Denim Trends for Every Body Type
The ’70s had bell-bottoms, the ’80s had skinnies and the early aughts had (shudder) ultra-low rises. So what’s going to be 2017’s denim legacy? A little of everything—which means there’s a flattering fit for every shape.
Much as we loved the cutoff minis of our youth, they’re a little harder to pull off after age 22. Pear-shaped gals (or anyone who wants a little extra coverage) will dig the retro vibes of a longer, A-line silhouette.
Does the track-pants trend still feel a little too Sporty Spice for your taste? Ease into it with the extremely wearable denim version: It’s great for elongating short legs.
Ubiquitous raw edges have evolved into full-blown hippie fringe, and we’re not mad about it. Tall gals in particular can rock the trend like nobody’s business.
High rise, full legs, can’t lose. (Especially if you’re looking to balance out a long torso—just be sure to wear heels.)
Love uneven hems? Try the upside-down iteration on for size. It has the whole deconstructed look down pat while simultaneously cinching in a not-exactly-hourglass middle.
After several seasons of vintagey fades reigning supreme, deeper indigos are finally back in the picture. Which is excellent news for anyone who could benefit from the overall streamlining of a darker hue.
Wear it solo now and with a turtleneck later—either way, you’ll appreciate the extra waist definition. (Roller skates optional.)
