Jeans are timeless classics that are always in style. Theyâ€™re a timeless classic that are always in style; one of the toughest, most versatile pieces of clothing on the market. However, even the timeless go through reinvention and this is exactly what has happened to the good olâ€™ pair of jeans over the last few years.
Last year was all about bright colours; but 2014, goes back to being tame and subtle. MensXP tells you exactly what to expect this year in terms of style and colour.
If the Spring-Summer collections are anything to go by, slim fitting jeans are the way to go this year. Even though theyâ€™re cut close to your body, they allow for breathing space along your legs. You can ask the shop assistant for a straight fit or a slightly tapered fit. Even though these fits are slim, they allow you for a little bit of room, giving you a relaxed look and feel.
Ensure that the length of your jeans donâ€™t ruin your fit. Confused? Well, in case your jeans are too long, theyâ€™ll end-up bunching at your ankles. While folding the bottom is an option, we suggest that you get the length altered. Folding is tacky and it ruins the fit. You can have your jeans hemmed at the end of your ankles; if youâ€™d rather wear them slightly longer, then allow the, about an inch and a half below your ankles, nothing more.
Skinny jeans and baggy jeans are a no-no. Shelf them or burn them while you go slim in 2014.
A Little Fade Will Do You Good
Washing jeans can be stressful, especially when youâ€™re trying to hold in colour. However, allow yourself a slight fade this year, because shirts are slated to be colourful and floral. Washed-out, rugged jeans make for a perfect combination. When we talk about washed-out, weâ€™re referring to jeans that have a slight fade, nothing more, nothing less.
No major fades and acid washes, please.
2014 is all about deep blues, earthy greens and rich but subtle burgundy. When it comes to jeans, bright, bright colours have all but found their way out.
In fact for all the confusion that white denim brings with it, the colour (yes, white is a colour!) is making a comeback, albeit a very slow one. Even though white jeans have been looked down upon for time immortal, theyâ€™re one of the most versatile colours you can own. All colours go with white, so you donâ€™t have a problem teaming your shirts, and depending on the look you want to carry off; you can choose your colour.
Team your white denims with a linen jacket for the summer and you have an ensemble that switches from work to play and work again, if you so desire.
Besides, since 2014 is all about going back to earthy colour where your denims are concerned, white does add that much-needed bit of brightness in your jeans wardrobe.
