If you’re anything like us, you like finding new ways to incorporate denim into your wardrobe. Denim can mean so more than just a pair of jeans, but it has a notorious reputation for being hit-or-miss — and when it’s bad, it’s really bad. However, this year’s spring denim trends are anything but bulky or frumpy. With an array of fun options, they are super stylish and, yes, slimming. 

Here are the three best slimming denim trends every woman should have in her closet this season. 

Denim Jumpsuit

For a comfortable denim staple you can wear well into summer, add a denim jumpsuit to your wardrobe this spring. The perfect way to stay on trend, denim jumpsuits are a timeless choice. When choosing your jumpsuit, go for one that cinches the waist. An oversized jumpsuit that lacks structure overwhelms the frame adding optical heft from head to toe. However, one with a tailed fit that nips in at the middle creates instant curves for a slimmer, more shapely silhouette. 

Denim Skirt

A staple in most closets, every woman needs a good, solid denim skirt. But with so many styles available, which one should you look for? Leave the mini behind and pick up a pencil skirt. The boxiness of a loose, low-rise mini that hits mid-thigh magnifies hips and thighs and leaves the lower half of the body looking short and squat. A high-waisted, above-the-knee pencil skirt, on the other hand, directs focus up and down to elongate the lower half for the most flattering look.

Denim Dress

For many women, a denim dress is a must-have piece come spring. It’s a great option for ladies looking to stay cool and stylish, but be sure to avoid odd necklines and streamline the torso with a sleeveless option. A shapeless shift with a high neck and cap sleeves can broaden the shoulders, bust, and waist. The fix? A tank-style dress with a flattering waistline pulls the eye in, daintily defining the body’s top half.
