Basic clothing styles are really having a moment these days—but don't mistake this for normcore 2.0. Unlike the minimalist movement that swept the fashion industry a few years back, the way to wear your t-shirts and jeans now is loud and proud. We're talking statement-making slogans emblazoned across the chest and an outpouring of ~extra~ details to make any outfit *pop*.
Save the safe designs for when minimalism resurfaces. When it comes to denim jeans for 2017, these are the key looks celebrities have been wearing:
1. Floral embroidery
Lush blooms creeping down one leg, oversized patches accentuating a butt-lifting silhouette—flowery jeans bring the garden indoors.
2. Contrast patches
This look is probably what would happen if you attempted to resuscitate a pair of jeans you foolishly cut off. Except it's cooler—plus, the cropped hems are a great way to show off a pair of statement shoes.
3. Light-wash side stripes
Essentially a fashion trick that aims to make your thighs look slimmer, contrast piping lend an unexpected twist to regular denims.
4. Heavy distressing
Of course, we can't leave out this oldie but goodie. Now's not the time to be demure—when it comes to rips and shreds, the more skin-baring, the better.
