Not Quite Skinny, Not Quite Straight
"For 2018, we're seeing skinny jeans evolve into a shape that's not quite a skinny and not quite a straight leg—the silhouette is very flattering and also very wearable, since it's not skintight yet it's still fitted. Our W4 High-Rise Shelter Slim just hit and illustrates this progression, and in a few weeks, one of our favorite new styles, the Higher Ground Crop, will drop, marrying this new silhouette with extreme distressing."
"Speaking of cropped jeans, cropped slim styles are still very relevant, although later in the season, we have longer inseams making a comeback."
"Holden and Slash are iterations of our fan-favourite fringe jeans. For 2018, hems are a little more understated, letting the washes and fits play a more substantial role."
