Denim is living a moment of increasing popularity among fashion buyers of all ages and genders. “A trend that started off solely with the high-waisted skinny soon spread into the popular mom jean. Any style that emerged from that point on has come in a high-waist cut”.
This makes the variety of fit-cut-wash combination quite extensive.
Starting with the new era of wide leg, the jeans have become an essential fashion staple for every wardrobe. There are so many interpretations and variations of this iconic garment that is possible for everyone to find the right style and fit.
Before you choose you next pair of jeans you may want to consider a few things: how long am I going to keep my next pair of jeans? Do I want a comfy pair of jeans or a trendy one? Am I going to use it at the office or to go out into town? Do you want to buy a pair of jeans that is also sustainable?
You should be aware of the fact that the denim fabric has an impact on the environment and some denim manufactures are now trying to reduce this impact by switching to natural coloration instead of chemical ones, use of Lyocell fibre instead of cotton and use recycled metal parts for rivets and metallic buttons.
One of the criteria for choosing a sustainable product is also the durability of the product itself. If you purchase a good quality product that will last you for many years to follow you are already on the path of sustainability, and one of the most truthful ones if I may add.
Consider that the circular economy it’s all based on reuse – recycle and repurpose. Therefore if you buy a pair of jeans that will last many years, or you can repurpose or resell you are in the virtuose circle of circular economy.
Business Comfort dress code
The second trend that we are seeing in 2022 is the Business Comfort. The pandemic has changed my habits and it’s going to have a long term effect. One of this effect is that people both male and female have changed their personal style during the pandemic, with a switch towards comfort clothing and comfy business clothes which include the denim, with a specific preference for stretchy comfortable denim and soft denim fabric like the left hand denim. The business comfort look includes “sweater dresses, oversized blazers and elastic-waist bottoms”.
Dress up and dress down
The jeans are are functional, versatile, elegant and timeless. One of the reasons denim jeans are so popular is that they can be dressed up or dressed down quite easily. You can wear them with a white t-shirt during the day and with a blazer to go out at night.
