8 New Ways to Rock Denim

Fashion-lovers rejoice, for it’s denim season once again! Open up the August issues of InStyle, Lucky, Self, Marie Claire, Nylon, and more in the Next Issue app for a full report on all of Fall’s latest denim trends.

As expected, you’ll see plenty of stylish skinnies, bell bottoms with a flare, and trendy cutoffs layered over tights. But this season’s looks go way beyond your average v-neck and jeans. There’s a whole new breed of denim styles in town, and we’ve picked 8 you’ve got to try now.

1. The Denim Trench

Find It : Nylon, August 2014

Get It: Classic Trench In Denim, $128, Gap

Wear It: Tie it off, pop your collar, and take it to the streets. Layer the denim trench over a dress and tights and you’ll feel stealthy enough to solve crime by night, and trendy enough to look cute doing it.


2. The Denim Patchwork Dress

Find It: Self, August, 2014

Get It: Victoria Beckham Denim, $650, BergdorfGoodman.com

Wear It: Leave it to Posh to finally find a way we can wear denim to the office, and not just on casual Friday.


3. The Denim Mini

Find It: InStyle, August 2014

Get It: See by Chloé, $235, shopbop.com

Wear It: It’s your classic ugly duckling story. The frayed, faded, all-too-mini skirt of the 90s spent a couple decades in hiding (for good reason) and emerged a glamorous, refined version of its former self.


4. The Printed Denim Skinnies

Find It: Nylon, August 2014

Get It: Leopard Jean, $65, Volcom

Wear It: Express your daily mood with your denim. These just scream, “You’re gonna hear me roar!”

Wear It: Dare to wear denim “H2T”?


6. The Embellished Denim

Find It: Lucky, August 2014

Get It: This bad boy is a vintage find, but if you aren’t feeling very “DIY,” Levi’s has already-patched denim jackets for $168.

Wear It: Rhinestones, mixed materials, patches…sometimes the crazier you go, the cooler it turns out.


7. The Two-Tone Denim Skinnies

Find It: Marie Claire, August 2014

Get It: Two-Toned Denim Jeans, $299, Paige Denim at Nordstrom

Wear It: It’s like the ombré trend, for your pants.


8. The Denim On Denim Look

Find It: Lucky, August 2014

Get It: Denim Crop Top, $1,400, Chanel. Denim Skirt, $2,100, Chanel.
