Leather flat sandals, colorful sneakers with white soles, oxfords and loafers are perfect for ripped jeans. Comfort and style are the only rules.

But no matter how trendy ripped jeans are, you can’t achieve a casual business look wearing one. Here’s a better option.

White Jeans – Denims Mean Business

A combination of high end and high quality, white denims are your ticket to the trendy business look in 2021.

White accentuates the body, so make sure you choose a cut that flatters your assets. It’s also a bit of a high maintenance piece, so reserve that pair for casual professional settings.

Keep those shirts and shoes businesslike as well. In terms of color, take advantage of the basic and organic nature of white and you’ll be able to rock that suave urbane professional look with panache.

Men’s Skinny Jeans

Elongated styles which can be rolled up, or models in 7/8 length, will be trending in 2021. They continue to rule in black, blue and gray.

Also, there are models offering greater ease in the thigh area.This allows for high levels of comfort without sacrificing style.

Revtown has created the Decade Denim, a classic cotton denim with threads that provide just enough stretch but great durability.

Since sustainable living is all the rage at the moment.

Out of the Blue

For 2021, men’s fashion trends in denim jeansplay around the color blue. Expect most brands to carry various tinges of dark blue, light blue and indigo.

Classic black, the most popular color of most brands in 2019, will be noticeably absent next year. Except for cameo appearances.

Bluer Than Blue

Covering a wide spectrum, from lightest to darkest, blue jeans are flexible.No matter what shirt you wear, and what shoes you pair, these jeans can take you places.

A wide variety of models ensures you have something for everything, and everywhere.Partying, a lazy weekend, strolling at the park, business meetings. You get the drift.

During the warm season, a pair of blue jeans can easily elevate a simple t-shirt. Any color will do. Plain, statement or printed is fine, too.

And when the weather is cool, sweatshirts, jackets, trench coats and hoodies would also match your blue jeans perfectly.

Blue by You

Another trend to look forward to in 2021 is the combination of several colors in one pair of denim jeans. Designers are also experimenting with having different shades of blue at once.

For instance, instead of showing skin, gaps are covered with fabric of a contrasting hue. Light blue denim jeans will have dark blue patches where the holes are. The beauty of this style is that it allows men to wear their denims even in cold weather. Neat.

What I love about this brand is that we're creating pieces that are worn over and over. It's not about seasons and we don't work to trends.
