Denim With Folded Turn-Ups
Pinnrolled jeans aka turned up denim style is also trending this year. This style is simple yet classy. You just need to turn up the hem of your jeans, That will give you a whole new shape to your overall look.
Usually, the hem of your jeans never sits perfectly above your ankle. Turnring them up for few stops will expose a bit of ankle which will give you a classy tempered look.
Turn-ups match best with rigid denims, because rigid denims will stay in place even when you fold them up for few stops. Try to wear them with a pair of rugged workers boot in winter. If the weather permits, then you can try any normal sneakers.
Distressed Ripped Denim
The distressed denim trend is continuing its rage from previous years. And, in my prediction. It will stick at least until 2020. Maybe it’s a bit overused style as almost everyone tried it last year, However, if you carefully handle the style, you can still stand out from the crowd and make a fashion statement.
This year’s distressed denim is all about bleached, raw edged, ripped style. But, the key is to try one style at once. If you mix all these patterns in one jeans you wont look good. Try to pick just one style to make it pop.
Keep everything simple. Do not wear jeans that has too many holes. This simple balance will give you a smart-casual look.
