Last year, many of us were staying at home to quarantine, social distance and work at home. This made us ditch the office attire and embrace athleisure, loungewear and pajamas. Though it was a comfy year when it comes to clothing, most of us are just itching to dress up a bit this year and there is no better way than a good pair of denim. We had ditched our beloved jeans for far too long and now it is time to bring them back into our lives. This year so far has brought us some great jeans that are not only stylish but comfortable too.
Denim trends come and go and it is time to retire the skinny jeans. Say hello to mom jeans, boyfriend jeans and mid-rise denim. Shopping for jeans just got a lot easier because the unforgiving, leg hugging style has made way for a looser and relaxed look. There is also a touch of nostalgia this year with the straight leg denim getting a bit of an upgrade into a 90s bootcut and 70s flare with an 80s pleated high waist. Ahead are the new denim trends that will be stealing the spotlight this year.
Slim Boot Cut Denim
Straight-leg jeans are definitely a classic and with the 90s bootcut upgrade, they are right on the money. They are super sleek and work seamlessly with any outfit you decide to put on. Can be easily dressed up or down with heeled ankle boots or kitten heels.
Loose Distressed Jeans
Loose-fitting ripped jeans are now the the fashion crowd favorite. They are sure to be a staple this year as an of-the-moment way to bring a laid-back quality to any look.
Loose-fitting jeans are the perfect trend for transitioning out of your athleisure or loungewear as these styles are both baggy. Available in different silhouettes, the baggy denim is also a showstopper. Pair it with a pointed or narrow show and a form fitting top.
Retro denim always have a place in fashion and this year, seventies-style bell-bottoms are making a serious comeback. One of the easiest ways to create a polished look while wearing these bell-bottoms is to pair it with either a cable knit, breezy blouse or a T-shirt. Complete your look with a clog or platform boot for channel your inner bohemian.
Pleated ’80s Denim
An ode to the ’80s, pleated high-rise jeans are a more stylized and sleeker version of a mom jean. They have been spotted on Hailey Bieber Chrissy Teigen, Hailey Bieber, and more. Pleated denim can be easily paired with fitted tanks or plain muscle tees for hotter months or turtlenecks for winter. Opt for an acid-wash pair if you want to go back to the 80s.
Light Wash Denim
Although denim in black, blue or gray tend to last longer when it comes to trends, there has been an influx of lighter washes. The casual 90s inspired denim is very easy to style and this also means that the colored denim has taken a backseat.
