So you've brushed up on the key autumn/ winter 2017 trends, but what can you expect in the denim department come September? There are four key pieces that will be big news this autumn, and it all starts with colour, as red jeans are the surprising must-have buy. Today, denim experts from Bad Denim and Paige reveal the four headlining looks you need to know when it comes to your jeans (required reading for anyone looking to upgrade their skinnies).
Scroll to find out about the four key denim trends for A/W 17.
1. It's All About Red
We reported earlier this year that red denim was a micro-trend, but it's set to be huge once autumn arrives. Double up with even more red for added impact.
2. You'll Want A Denim Midi Skirt
The Who What Wear team is in agreement that the one denim piece we're all after right now is a high-waisted denim midi skirt. Opt for a style with a slit down the front like Lisa Aiken, Net-a-Porter's fashion director.
3. High-Waisted, Straight-Leg Jeans Are Going Nowhere
When it comes to cut, there's still one silhouette that is still on top—high-waisted, straight leg jeans. As Paige Adams Geller, the founder of Paige, told us, "It's definitely still all about high-rise straight leg. I think you can embrace it any way you want." A classic pair of jeans, making it an anti-trend trend, if you will.
4. You'll See These Jeans Everywhere
According to the trends skinny jeans are still out. Erin, founder of Bad Denim, adds: "For A/W 17, shape-wise, it's all about the wider leg, worn at the mid- or high waist, balancing the shape by hugging the hips. Kings of Indigo's barrel leg and Re/Done's stovepipes are so perfectly right on. I like to wear it a little cropped, too, so there's some ankle showing and the volume isn't overwhelming." Rejina Pyo's culotte-style wide-leg jeans have been already been a standout style of the summer.
