The fall/ winter 2016-2017 denim trends are extremely diverse, bringing in denim bags, denim shoes, cool customized jeans and everything else in between. Denim is multipurpose and comfortable and can be found in a variety of options and styles. Not only are denim pieces easy to love, they are also practical with their durability and real pockets. Denim is easy to dress up or down and lasts a good long time. Everyone has at last one denim item in their closet, and we are happy to recommend the following fall/ winter 2016-2017 denim staples as possible additions to your new season wardrobe.
1. MIU MIU Lace Applique Denim Bag
Shoulder bags will always be in style in some fashion or another, and Miu Miu has a masterful command of embellishments. The romantic lace addition pops over the denim, while the leather trim adds another rich accent. The silver shoulder chain is the finishing touch for this bag. Get yours at My Theresa!
2. Alice + Olivia Vintage Denim Jacket
Acid washed denim has yet to fully go away and in some cases it makes an appearance. For fall 2016 acid washed denim jackets covered in patches and pins are an entrancing addition you can get at Shopbop.
3. Embroidered Mid-Rise Straight-Leg Jeans
Bliss and Mischief’s addition to the fall/ winter 2016-2017 denim clothing trend is a pair of straight-leg jeans with a soft pink hand designed rose and arrows on each knee. These authentic 501-Levi’s-crafted jeans include cool embellishments, and are available at Net-A-Porter.
4. Rag & Bone Embroidered Boyfriend Jeans
Boyfriend jeans are a huge trend. As a fall/ winter 2016-2017 denim clothing option, boyfriend jeans are comfortable to wear and easy to style. These embroidered jeans show that the love is in the details, as the little R&B embroidered on the jeans and surrounded by the heart show. Get yours at Forward!
5. Pearl Tassel Denim Pants
These fall 2016 jeans are mid-rise and capri-styled with small leg slits and a zigzag hemline. The colorful tassels and fake pearls add a bit of whimsy and put a fun pair of jeans firmly in the fall 2016 denim trend. You can purchase yours Storets!
6. Denim Choker
Chokers are a huge trend independently, but thicker chokers can be a bit more flattering and this denim choker covers the denim trend as well. The frayed ends create a juxtaposition between textures and color that is easy to appreciate and comfortable to wear. Order yours from Baublebar!
7. Shearling Crop Denim Jacket
One of the biggest signifiers of a good fall/winter trend is the ability to last through the cold season. This denim jacket has a faux shearling lining for extra coziness and assorted pins for eye-catching details and my favorite feature is the actual pockets! Get yours at Revolve!
8. Miu Miu Denim Lace-Up Ballerinas
Miu Miu is back in the lineup with their denim ballerina shoes, another item that hits more than one trend. These flats heavily favor the ballerina aesthetic and beautifully represent for the velvet trend as well with the soft midnight blue velvet laces. The buckles are another great feature, but we have three total trends available in one package that you can buy at My Theresa.
9. Embroidered Bell-Bottom Jean
The nature inspired rigid denim jeans have a mid-rise fit and an old school flared leg. The embellishments are beautifully detailed flowers for an overtly stylish throwback look with a five-pocket style and a zip fly with button closure. Get yours from Net-a-Porter!
10. Skater Denim Indigo Mini Skirt
The finished raw edges of a denim mini skirt are a favorite of anyone with a love for the early ‘00s. It isn’t just because this skater skirt is denim that makes it a great addition for the fall 2016 denim trend, but because it is stylish, and has real pockets! Get yours at Urban Outfitters!
11. See by Chloe Denim Mini Dress
Italian made with a contrast velvet trim, this dress is on point for two fall/ winter 2016 fashion trends – denim and velvet. Amusingly enough the color is washed indigo, but the dress is dry-clean only. Get yours at Forward!
12. Sonia Rykiel Embroidered Flared Jeans
Embroidered jeans are a great choice to add to your collection and these are colorful without being overdone. While high-rise jeans are making a comeback, so are flared jeans and you get both options with these by Sonia Rykiel. Get yours at Net-A-Porter!
13. Anine Bing Jeans with Lacing
Items that work multiple trends at once are a favorite and these technically qualify with both the fall 2016 denim trend and the piercing trend as well. These denim jeans feature full-length lacing on both sides as an interesting detail. Get yours at Anine Bing!
14. Frame Nouveau Le Mix
The Nouveau le Mix jeans come in two finishes: Remix and Mix and Match. This is a straight-leg, mid-rise jean with a raw, staggered hem. The construction features two different contrasting blue denim pieces, making each pair unique. Get yours at Frame!
15. Reworked Denim Shorts
Distressed Bermuda-style denim shorts feature a relaxed fit. These are reworked, providing completely unique pairs. You can purchase a set at Runway 2 Street!
16. Floral Embroidered Denim Skirt
Even though the fall 2016 trend is denim, there almost seems to be a sub trend of embroidered denim for a bit of extra flair. This denim mini skirt is cut in a slim-fitting A link with a high waist, but the real aesthetic punch is in the embroidered floral design. Order yours from Topshop!
17. Fur & Denim Coat
In my opinion, no fall or winter trend or otherwise is complete without being prepped for the elements. In the Le Bon fur and denim jacket you will definitely be warm and what else could you want for fall? This jacket is available at Luisa Via Roma.
18. Denim Overalls
Overalls are a classic and come in multiple cuts. These overalls are considered a slouchy, skinny fit due to the drop waist and relaxed tapered leg. The contoured bib gives it an interesting cut as well, and the tapered legs look best rolled up. Purchase yours at Wildfox!
19. FRAME Le Crop Bell
Black denim is always interesting and trendy but when you want a fun and interesting silhouette, consider a cropped bell flare silhouette. It is a bit unexpected and the flare can range from slight to extreme, but still fashionable with the right amount of confidence. These are available at the Frame Store.
20. Ripped Letter-Print Skinny Jeans
And now for my favorite on the list – these ankle jeans are fun and trendy with the quips, rips and tears emblazoned on them. These fit perfectly at the head of the pack for the 2016 denim trends, but I thought I would save the best for last. These jeans are stunning, and can be purchased from Shien.
