We've touched briefly on a few denim silhouettes for spring, we're talking about you crop flare, but we wanted to dive deeper into this season's trends.  We have the usual suspects for warmer weather - boyfriend jeans, shorts, major distressing and white denim everything - but there are a few more interesting and unexpected styles out there that we are super excited about.

You'll find released hems on just about every denim style you can think of, from jeans and shirts to dresses, it's a quick way to add some extra texture to your outfit and also a little edge.

The LDD (little denim dress) is another one we love.  It can be as simple as a chambray shirt dress all the way to a breezy yet tailored wrap dress or even a bold maxi dress.  These dresses will give you lot of mileage during the spring and summer months, moving easily from day to evening by simply changing your accessories.

A classic piece that's made a comeback, is the high waist mini skirt. We saw it in suede for winter and it's returned in denim with a raw hem for spring and summer.  Pair this piece with a fitted white tee and your favorite gladiator sandals for a classic summer ensemble.

From L to R: Closed "Starlet" jean, Current/Elliott trucker jacket with rolled sleeves, Closed wrap dress and released hem top & Current/Elliott "Naval" skirt.

The best part about jeans and denim, is the countless ways you can wear each piece.  Even with raw edges, distressing and holes, you can dress your pieces up for a fun night out or down for a weekend spent with your family.
