Fall & Winter Denim Trends: Embroidery, Patches & Distressing, Oh My!

Buffalo Exchange Denim Trends

By Monica Eckhoff, Buffalo Exchange HQ

Fall and winter are no stranger to denim, but we’re seeing so many fun updates this season! Here are a few of our must-have denim trends hitting stores now.

Denim Trends: The Trucker Jacket

Buffalo Exchange Trucker Jackets

Denim jackets are a classic Americana staple in everyone’s closet, but this year we’re seeing fun customizations with patches, text, distressing and raw hem lines for that worn-in look. These are available in any wash you could want, including light washes, dark denim and, of course, black!

Denim Trends: How to Style Embroidered Jeans

Buffalo Exchange Embroidered Jeans and Bodysuit

Embroidery isn’t just for summer! We’ve paired these fun light wash, raw hem jeans with a dark tie-neck bodysuit and a simple matching rose beanie and wedges.

If you prefer a look that’s more casual but still totally cute, pair the same jeans and beanie with a fun ruffle sleeve tee and a denim jacket for some denim on denim action.

For the sportier gal, we paired some darker wash step- hem jeans with a cropped choker neck hoodie. Add some comfortable sneakers and a backpack and you’re ready to head off to class.

Denim Trends: Overalls

Buffalo Exchange denim overalls

We LOVE overalls! This is definitely one of our favorite denim trends of the year. You can literally throw any blouse or tee underneath to create a wide variety of looks – from casual to dressed up.  We especially love layering overalls with a ruffled sleeve top.  This creates the perfect statement while still being comfortable.

Denim Trends: The New Mini Skirt

Buffalo Exchange mini skirt and blouse

Button-down denim minis were great for summer, but now we’re starting to see skirts with a little bit more of a 90s influence. We paired this dark denim double pocket skirt with a trumpet sleeve blouse in classic white and a beret for some major French vibes. This look is perfect for wowing all your friends on the first day of class!

Buffalo Exchange mini skirt and tee

For more of a nighttime look, we paired the same skirt with a metallic cold-shoulder tee, a matching turban and distressed denim jacket. You can always throw on some fishnets and boots to add some major rocker vibes.
