There are two types of trends: the ones we're glad to see leave (Von Dutch trucker hats, anyone?) and the recurring ones we're happy to embrace. Case in point? '70s-inspired denim. Think flattering flares, high-waisted fits and button front skirts, not unlike the ones your babe of a mom could be seen wearing back in her high school heydays. It's no secret we love a throwback (and our moms), so here at Van de Vort, we're really taking the bohemian vibes of this season's denim in stride--and of course, putting our own personal touch on the recurring trend. For tips on how to do this fall's denim trends the right way--keep reading.
Skirt The Issue
Denim skirts are back, and (thankfully) looking way different than we remember them. Gone are the frayed hemlines, low-slung hips or cringe-y lace underlays à la your Abercrombie days. That's all been replaced by high-waist hemlines, button front detailing and darker washes, and this Free People Come Closer Denim Skirt
is the ideal specimen. We love it with a neutral colored keyhole top blouse
and sleek, center parted hair for a modern take on the trend.
All Tied Up
We love these Somedays Lovin Dylan Stretch Denim Flares
for so many reasons: the super high waist, woven waistband detailing and the five button fly, just to name a few. And you just can't deny the flower child vibes these flares are giving off, especially when paired with a floral print wrap crop top
. This look is perfect for the boho babe who wants to throw it back in the realest way possible--extra points if you can pull of the Farrah Fawcett-esque feathered hair.
Sure, you could play it safe and a tuck a white tee into your flares and call it a day--but what would be the fun in that? These lighter wash Free People Pull On Flares
are perfect for pairing with a black and white woven texture mock neck tank
in warmer weather. When cooler temps hit, layer up this dark wash version
with a faux suede tank
and a chunky fringe cardigan
. In some cases less is more, but this definitely isn't one of them.
More Flare, More Fun
Some people say that a voluminous top should be balanced out by close-fitting bottoms. We're not those people. In our minds the more flare, the better. Team a pair of your most dramatic kick flares
with an equally as daring flared sleeve top. Our favorites are this Stone Cold Fox Taurus
blouse with a keyhole neckline and velvet detailing, and this Free People Stars Aligned Top
with clean lines, in a pretty cream color.
