Denim Trend Forecast for 2019

Denim is a key category for Women and Juniors at MAGIC trade show, and since it's also such an important part of our modern wardrobes, I pay close attention to all things denim when I browse the booths each season. I'll be sharing four standout denim trends for 2019 in this fashion forecast. 

February 21, 2019 update - See four women's denim trends for 2020 on my other blog The Key To Chic.

1. Sporty Stripes
There's nothing surprising about the carryover of sporty stripes into 2019. All manner of athletic references continue to dominate the market, as athleisure shows no signs of waning. Look for glittery trims, bold shades of red, and skinny stripes this time around. Read my feature on this trend from last season. See Express and Topshop for more examples of this theme.

2. Pretty Embellishments
Boring denim be gone; there are details aplenty on the horizon. As we look towards 2019, there are so many fun embellishments adorning denim, such as bows and self belts, faux fur trims, and the continuation of floral embroidery. See Gucci and Rebecca Taylor for more examples of this trend.

3. Deconstructed
Frayed edges, undone hems, shredded effects, and a worn-in look prevail. See Nasty Gal and GRLFRND for more inspiration.

4. New Nineties
The '90s are back in full force. As if! Channel your inner Cher Horowitz and get your mom jeans, overalls, checkered prints, plaids, and over-the-top denim jackets ready. It's all about cropped lengths, layering, bold details, and belted waists. See BoohooWild Fable, and Topshop for great examples.

This post would be incomplete if I didn't mention the rise of sustainability in the denim industry. With manufacturers seeking more eco-friendly processes and dyes, using recycled materials (such as plastic bottles), and trying to reduce the amount of resources used to make denim, there's a rising demand for being more green. Aztex Trading showed how e-flow machines, laser effects, and dyeing with air bubbles can create unique surfaces without polluting the planet.
