Jeans have come a long way in recent years. There are more cuts, rises, and details than ever before, which means there’s something interesting for everyone. They’ve gone from casual favorite to fashion statement piece. You may have already started experimenting and expanding your denim collection to include all the new fits. If not, let 2019 be the year you diversify from plain old skinny jeans.
BUTTON UP JEANS
Zippers are so 2018. Give your jeans a retro feel with visible buttons instead. They’ll make your high rise jeans look even higher (creating that legs-for-days effect) and you’ll never have to worry about your fly accidentally being undone. This detail looks especially great on flares and wide leg jeans. Pair with a fitted blouse and chunky platform sandals for ultimate 70s vibes.
SIDE SLIT JEANS
A revealing dress a la Angelina Jolie isn’t the only way to show a bit of leg, and skin-tight jeans aren’t the only sexy ones. New denim designs are getting more creative than ever, hence the side slit jeans. Flares are being cut with a built-in slit at the calf, and track-style snap button jeans are also now a thing. Cheeky and breathable for the summer!
PATCHWORK/TWO TONE JEANS
Can’t decide on just one wash? Don’t settle! You can get the best of both (or all) worlds with patchwork or two tone jeans. Stick to similar washes for a more stylish, polished feel - you don’t want to look like you’re wearing literal scraps of fabrics or leftovers.
The utilitarian look is making a comeback this year, and it’s being incorporated in everything including denim. You’ll never be complaining about a lack of pockets (or their size) with the new cargo-hybrid carpenter style jeans.
We’ve seen bright, colored jeans being trendy, so naturally printed jeans are the next step. This season animal prints in particular are taking over: leopard, cheetah, tiger, zebra.
Speaking of colored jeans … if you’re not an animal print person consider pastel jeans instead. More subtle than the bold hues that were popular earlier in the decade, but still more interesting than regular old blue wash. Lavender, baby pink, mint … perfect for spring!
ULTRA WIDE LEG
If you thought boyfriend jeans were comfortable, then ultra wide leg jeans will leave you speechless. Think early 90s rapper only more flattering. This style hugs your bum then flares out at the thigh to give your legs maximum space and room to roam.
