6 Fall Denim Trends You're About to See Everywhere (And 2 Styles To Retire)
Our current relationship with denim is complicated to say the very least. It seems unreasonable to leave our favorite jeans collecting dust in our closets forever, but our new way of life does call for a new approach. We think the answer may lie in intentional and inspiring buys that make jeans fun again. From neutral hues to the skater boy-inspired pair you never though you'd wear yourself, these are the trends you can't miss this season.
This trend may sound intimidating (and conjure memories of Hot Topic, Pacsun and endless hours at the mall) but this 90s trend is actually super flattering. The wide-leg, loose-fitting cut pairs really well with flirty tops and baguette bags.
Retire: Long Denim Skirts
Between our work from home schedules and the pending return to the office, long denim skirts can read a bit too fussy. If we're wearing jeans at all, we're going for a traditional pair that we don't have to think much about.
If patchwork denim makes you think of Britney and Justin circa 2001, we’re here to reassure you the latest trend is anything but. This time around, it's much more vintage-inspired. Think contrasting hems and vertical stripes.
Now that the 90s are back in full force, it was only a matter of time before the cargo jean made its grand reentrance. In 2021, we're going less grunge and more polished, pairing this look with understated tops and accessories.
Retire: Colored Denim
Colored denim is one of those trends that comes and goes fairly frequently, so we're sure we'll see this one again someday. But for now the aforementioned neutral pairs are feeling more modern...and less like you're working at a car wash for Barbies.
