These days, denim is anything but basic. It comes in waxes, washes, colors, prints, patterns, and everything in between. Better yet, new styles arrive all the time, which is why it is time for another update on the types of denim you should be wearing right now. With that said, we have rounded up four stars to use as muse, so click through to today’s Style Spy story for the details on the must-try denim styles of the season and who is wearing them.
Yes, jeans now come in velvet. January Jones was recently spotted wearing a pair of Citizens of Humanity’s Avedon Stretch Velvet Skinny Jeans in Rose Petal ($195). These are perfect if you want to take a step up from the denim of old and try a luxe new fabric. Other great options include: Free People’s Velvet Cropped Jeans ($88) and Lucky Brand’s Velvet Charlie Super Skinny Jeans ($99).
For a bold rocker-chic look, do as Jessica Alba has done and pick up a pair of metallic jeans—not only will you catch the eye, but they can be dressed up or down. Sadly, Jessica’s favorite pair—Goldsign’s Lure Floral Jeans ($297)—are sold out, but there are tons of other options available including 7 For All Mankind’s Metallic Floral-Print Jeans ($99) and Blank Denim’s Gold Foil Skinny Jeans ($98).
When you want the look of leather without the price of leather, a pair of coated jeans is your best friend. For proof, look no further than Lea Michele and her pair of Citizens of Humanity Rocket Skinny Faux Leather Jeans ($229). Better yet, if forest green is not your color, don’t despair. You can also check out Zara’s Wax-Coated Denim Pants ($60) and J Brand’s 901 Coated Super Skinny Jeans ($218).
Of course, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley would look good in a paper bag, but she looks really good in Citizens of Humanity’s Dylan Boyfriend Jeans ($228). The key to wearing a slouchy style like this is to pick out a fitted top, just as Rosie has done, which helps to create balance. Other great options include: Current/Elliott’s The Boyfriend Cropped Jeans ($229) and Artisan de Luxe’s Vermejo Embellished Boyfriend Jeans ($208).
