Fashion Jobs – New Year, New Jeans

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada


A new year means it’s time for some new jeans. This year, we can’t get enough of the model-off-duty look and are so thrilled to see that it’s finally time to ditch our skin-tight skinnies and make way for some looser-fitting and more rugged styles. Over the coming months, make some space in your wardrobe for some model-approved denim that’s everything but tight. From jagged, distressed hems to ‘70s inspired patchwork, we’ve rounded up the most coveted styles for 2017.

Uneven Hem

If you’re not ready to ditch the skinnies entirely, then a pair of slim fit jeans with an uneven hem are exactly what you need for the transition phase.

The ‘Mom’ Jean

A pair of mom jeans has never looked SO good. The high waisted denim pairs perfectly with a tucked in fitted turtleneck or a grungy band tee. We can’t get enough of these straight leg AGOLDE jeans and can’t wait to add a pair of these to our denim repertoire.



It looks like the fashion world is reliving the ‘70s, as denim has taken on the role of being a creative canvas for designers to decorate with bold and colourful embellishments. From patches to embroidery, this is a trend we can get behind.

Raw Hem

Raw hems became the talk of the town in 2016 and we’re thrilled that they are making a comeback this year. Raw hems are undoubtedly the hottest denim trend and can be worn cropped, straight or flared.

It’s time to stop thinking that cropped jeans will make your legs look short and start embracing how stylish they look on! Cropped jeans have been seen on everyone from celebrities and fashion bloggers to models and even yours truly. Pair them with a chic mule and a tucked in turtleneck for a model-approved look.
