New focus is on the body and thighs rather than the whole leg. High cut waists are shapely with interesting versions of the 5 pocket principle. We also see a return to the stitched -in front seam emphasising the leg length and allowing us to use it as a feature in laundry work. The hourglass silhouette culminates in whatever shape of jean below the knee- flare; boot cut; slim; boyfriend ; crop or deeply cuffed - and don't forget the raw edge finishing.
High waists allow us to play with top stitching, visible buttons and shorter crop jackets. Raw look denims in rich bright indigos may look rigid but with the addition of lycra for a little stretch the term "raw denim" is not so much raw as supremely chic.
Women's denim is becoming more tailored and unwashed in high waisted slim shapes. Cool guys favour raw rigid in slim shapes and crop ankle grazer lengths whilst the geezers still like the aggressive laundry work whatever the shape.
The MiH Jeans ~Golborn Road project by Bay Garnett heralds a resurgence of waist and body emphasis dropping to cropped flares with cuffs big and washed or simply frayed. Girly yet elegant depending on the accessories bringing back the 70's laid back sexy looks.
