Denim is the ever-changing constant of the fashion industry. Always prevalent, there are so many different denim trends it can be hard to keep up with which ones are in. From denim dresses to your average pair of skinny jeans, there are just so many ways to do up your denim. Let’s take a look at what denim is popular this year.
Dark denim was all over the runway, with deep indigo hues woven into a variety of garments. Alena Akhmadullina featured a denim tracksuit in her Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear collection, while MSGM and Khaite both featured more fitted denim jeans and tops. Elie Tahari’s dark denim dress from Resort 2019 features a simple silhouette that pairs perfectly with the detailed shoulders and sleeves.

Although denim tends to elicit images of jeans, some designers have expanded the range of denim garments. La Vie Rebecca Taylor and Marissa Webb both featured dresses with body-con silhouettes, though Marissa Webb’s was reminiscent of a pair of jeans while La Vie Rebecca Taylor went with a simple and sophisticated style. Markus Lupfer’s A-line button up dress was paired expertly with a heart belt, and Tory Burch’s light denim dress and striped turtleneck look perfect for cooler June evenings and rainy August afternoons.
Dress up in denim:
Designers are just dying to be on top when it comes to denim trends. 3.1 Phillip Lim and Derek Lam 10 Crosby featured lovely, tye dye style denim that reminds me of the clearest ocean waters. Oscar de la Renta’s Resort collection featured a stunning dip-dyed denim evening gown, and Sandy Liang’s denim crop top and jeans feature lovely butterflies for a very sweet style.
Dye for these denim fabrics:
Where there is dark, there is light. ADEAM’s denim corset is absolutely stunning and paired perfectly with a mustard skirt, and Marissa Webb’s jumper looks perfect for summer when styled without a turtleneck and overcoat, a wonderful transitioning piece. Balmain sported a variety of light denim jeans, and Dolce & Gabbana’s rich denim bomber jacket features an opulent array of jewels and gold.
Love these light denim fabrics:
Designers have been tearing it up this year, with tattered jeans making quite the appearance. Balmain and Chanel really ripped into their jeans, while Dsquared2 lightened up with just a few abrasions. House of Holland went with a more obscure look, featuring a frayed trim across the chest and down the pant leg and detachable sleeves.
