Denim is refreshed with a statement feel, updating shapes with a directional play on surface design and texture for Fall/Winter 2016-17. Suitable for the Junior and Contemporary markets, see how casual apparel styles can be transformed into standout pieces for the womenswear wardrobe with this bold new denim theme trend.
From jackets to jeans, the Trendstop.com denim experts have analyzed how these developments will emerge in collections for the upcoming season, influencing key denim elements like color, wash and detail, as seen here.


Denim appeals to the touch with highly tactile designs, as heavily textured surfaces add interest to shapes while reinforcing them for winter weather. Highlight designs include scaled denim and raw self-textured ruffles, as well as materials with unusual puckered qualities. Garments can be worn separately or matching for an enhanced statement.
