Coated Denim is a hot fall/winter fashion trend.  The luxurious feel of this denim takes any outfit to a new stylish level.  Coated denim typically has a glossy sheen and leather-like feel.  This denim gives you the comfort of denim but the trendiness of leather.  Designers such as Paige, Joe’s, Citizens of Humanity, Joe Fresh, NYDJ, and AG Adriano Goldschmied create trendy coated denim; however most denim designers make coated denim so find your “Go To” brand and shop there!

Coated denim came into play in 2007 but is updated each season and truly became a must have 2 years ago!  The original denim started in dark colors such as black, but this season’s hottest looks are in metallics- silver, bronze, & gold, and rich fall colors, such as burgundy, merlot, plum, emerald green, camel, and chocolate brown.

Fit is key with this look.  The denim should hug your leg line.  You want it to accentuate your curves and muscles, not look droopy.  This denim does not stretch so it will feel the same all day while wearing, unlike most denim which loosens up with wear.  Length is also important.  Ankle length coated jeans cuts off your leg line and makes you appear shorter.  To elongate your legline and frame,

        Too Short!                 Perfect Length!

Style It:  Coated denim looks chic with high heels, showing skin to contrast against the denim.  Contrast textures such as animal print, animal skins, and embellishment such as studs and straps to create a trendy look.
