Playing These Denim Trends Will NEVER Go Out Of Style—According To Fashion Expert

Denim trends seem to go in and out of style all the time. While ultra-faded, floral and sequin jeans are now "out," other styles seem to be making a comeback (or staying just as popular as they have been over the years). Whenever it comes to anything trend-related, Rach calls on her go-to fashion gal Gretta Monahan to share her style expertise.  

"Denim has changed so much. It was weekend, it was off-duty, it was very specific where and when you used your denim. We weren't going to work and office and everywhere, but now the global movement is we need denim for every occasion," Gretta explains.  

"The second thing is, all the fits have gone from fit and rigid and tight to much more relaxed," she says. But, even though a lot has changed over the years when it comes to denim, Gretta shares three types of jeans that she says are the cornerstones of every denim wardrobe. 

The Straight Leg Jean 

"Basically, a straight leg is really that classic shape. Now, within that, you're going to see them go long and have a little bit of a puddle at the bottom. You're going to see them go shorter or cropped or ankle, but a straight leg jean is the cornerstone. It's not going to change and you're going to roll it up or wear it straight," Gretta says.

The Skinny Jean 

"Skinny jeans are polarizing—you either loved them or you hated them. All the young people and a lot of people our age are still wearing their skinny jeans. So, if you love your skinny Jeans and they look great, you've got to wear them," she explains.

The Flare Jean  

"This is the other major, major trend," says Gretta. She suggests going for a pair that is fitted above the knee like a skinny or a boot-cut, but then flares out at the foot. "Flares lengthen you and make you look slimmer, longer and beautiful if it's done with a little bit of stretch," she says.
