Denim is undergoing a transformation for Fall/Winter 2016-17, updating shapes with a fresh range of inspirational, fashion-forward themes. Essential new season styles create directional additions to the winter wardrobe, influenced by aesthetics derived from the worlds of sport, workwear, DIY culture and beyond. Pinpointed by Trendstop's denim trend experts, see how these F/W16 theme trends introduce a wealth of innovative developments into denim collections, renewing everything from colour, wash and surface to silhouette and detailing. This week, FashionUnited readers can discover 70's Chic Denim, a must-have womenswear trend that breathes new life into retro denim styles to create 70's-inspired pieces with a clean, contemporary appeal.
70's Chic Denim
This season, women's denim inspires a 70's mood with the use of striking patchwork prints, executed in tonal shades of denim blue. Clean lines add refinement to simple cuts, as seen in the form of cropped culottes and flared jeans. Meanwhile, more casual DIY looks can be created with pieced-together materials and raw edgings. Double denim coordinations make a modern statement with stylings of formal jackets and jeans.
In the Flat Finish trend, we see Fall/Winter denim emerge with clean-cut designs and anti-treatment styles. Purist shapes look chic, on show in A-line mini dresses and longline coats. Wide-leg dungarees can be layered over a tactile roll-neck knit for a winter 70's look, as high-waist silhouettes and shirt collar details enhance the revamped retro feel.
