If there’s one part of our wardrobe we’d never let go of, it’s our jeans. We can’t get enough denim. And while we’ve always got our standard skinnies and flares and chambray shirts on rotation, we’re also inclined to keep up with what’s hot—like these nine styles currently trending.
Can’t decide between a light wash and a medium wash? You don’t have to, with on-trend two-tone jeans. They’re more interesting than your normal pairs but still subtle enough to wear interchangeably. To take it a step further, though, consider patchwork jeans like these that are a bit more in your face but totally cool.
This DIY detail has been around for a little while, and it looks like it’s here to stay. Pair distressed hems with girlier accessories like pointy-toe pumps and a box clutch to keep the look mature.
Embellished Denim Jackets
This one’s possibly our favorite trend, mostly because it’s so damn fun. The beauty of an embellished jean jacket is that you can be as conservative or as forward as you like. Whether it’s a tiny (removable) patch on a lapel or your name emblazoned across the back, this is the best way to make a closet staple way more interesting.
No, you shouldn’t retire your curve-hugging flares, but for this season you might also consider getting on the trouser train. Unlike bells, these are a bit looser fitting and a touch more professional. Wear ‘em with a pair of heels to make your legs look as long as Karlie Kloss’s (well, kind of).
Longer Denim Jackets
We’re obviously obsessed with our jean jackets, but we’re also crushing hard on this longer version. Worn atop an all-black ensemble and heels, it’s slightly more sophisticated than its cropped counterpart, but worn with jeans and sneakers, it’s still effortlessly cool.
Mom jeans are in, you guys, and they can look really cool. With a higher waist and very little stretch, these are a throwback in the best way. The key here is styling: You’re probably going to want to tuck your top in to highlight your waist, whether it’s a frilly blouse or a structured button-down.
Black Skinny Jeans
While plain old skinnies might not be trending, you can totally still wear them, and their darker counterparts are having a bit of a moment. Read: You should definitely buy a pair if you haven’t already. They’re easier to dress up than a lighter wash but still look super cool when dressed down with a t-shirt and bomber jacket.
