100 Non-Traditional Jean Styles

From Recycled Paint Jeans to Bangkok Skater Denim

— December 21, 2012 — Eco
Although jeans are a staple in most people's wardrobe, the plethora of jean styles can often be overlooked. The style of pants is constantly evolving as designers find new ways to work with the fabric and add their own touches.

Jeans have become so popular that denim has found its way into a lot of other consumer goods like furniture as well as classic fashion pieces like jean jackets. That being said, jean pants are still the foundation for it all, which makes looking at different jean styles all the more important.

Traditionally, jeans are blue denim, but these days jean styles are incorporating other colors which is diversifying the fabric applications. Jeans are also very durable by nature so they've long been a favorite pant style for trades people.
