Your Bottom Lines For Fall 2019-20
WARM COLOURS, SUBTLE PRINTS, SKINNIES,
FLARES,CROPS AND CUFFS
The marvelous thing about denim is the world of possibilities it offers. Skinny or straight, wide or flared, high rise or low, cropped or cuffed – the permutations are limitless. And we haven’t even begun to talk colour, print and wash. So what’s trending for fall 2019, and how can you update your jean game this season? Tweak it!
Nico Antonopoulos, brand manager for Yoga Jeans®, offers up a crash course in jeaneology. First off, skinnies are here to stay. They remain the basis of most women’s wardrobes because they are versatile, easy to pair with boots and shoes – and we’re used to them. The tweak on skinnies: a clean, dark jean with no side seams. Or a high waist. A more marked update: the straight leg – to show you don’t have to try so hard to be sexy. Like a slouchy pant? That easy, relaxed girlfriend jean gets cuter with a cuff. High waists are trending, embraced by the young because, hey, it’s fashion – and they’re flattering. More mature types like the high waist because it holds everything in. The ‘70s obsession means a glorious warm fall palette – rust, safari green, mustard – are on offer. Wide legs remain on the style radar. Your fall 2019 update: V inserts on the side of wide flares for that hippie patchwork vibe – without being too literal. Consider the cropped flare for fall – it won’t drag in the snow and slush come winter. Fashion’s love affair with animal prints is scorching hot this season, and jeans are certainly not sitting out the trend. Perhaps a subtle cheetah print will satisfy your inner tiger.
On another note, a laser-etched plaid is understated and sophisticated,so only close observers might notice you’re not wearing those tried and true faded black jeans.“Customers really love the subtle details,’’ Antonopoulos says.More ways to renew your bottom line: Bolder (but still soft) plaids on ponte stretch pants pay tribute to punk. Vegan leather leggings with tuxedo stripes. Classic chinos in cream and black. Some surprising springy colours like beige, pink, jasmine yellow and red. For a fresh take, pair them with huge knits for fall. And let’s not forget corduroy – wide-legged, in black, green, blue and rust – for ultimate cool-girl style.As for the ripped, air-conditioned styles of summer, they take a bit of a break for fall and winter, although jeans often have small grinding details to give them that vintage, worn-in feel.
