Fall Denim Trend: Postcards from Hollywood

Join Cotton Incorporated, Lectra, Accelerating Circularity, Public Habit and more on July 15 for Sourcing Journal's virtual Sustainability FAQs workshop to pull back the curtain on the circularity, traceability, net zero and inventory reduction concepts that could transform your business.

Retro denim always has a place in fashion, but this fall designers have overwhelmingly culled inspiration from the ’70s.

The decade’s saturated earthen colors and tomboyish-yet-sexy styling have the ability to instantly inject drama into wardrobes, while signature pieces like leather dusters and exaggerated jeans silhouettes add swagger to women’s strut.

Rivet’s Fall/Winter 20-21 fashion story “LA Lady” bring this wide-sweeping ’70s trend to life with Hollywood as a cinematic backdrop.

Shot on a rare moody day on Hollywood Blvd., the editorial features statement pieces like Gucci’s glam safari jean jacket and Marc Jacobs’ patchwork denim and matching boots alongside Prada’s geometric-print suiting and Alberta Ferretti’s breezy tunic tops and pieced jean jackets.

The trend works off the runway as well. Frame’s sleek denim jumpsuit, Sandro’s high-waisted shorts and flare jeans by brands like Wrangler and Mother Denim are examples of how the retro look translates across the women’s denim category.
