Top Denim Trends To Look Out For In 2021
2020 wasn’t an easy year. We basically tossed aside any piece of clothing that was required to be worn outside. We found comfort in owning multiple pairs of sweatpants and sweatshirts to lounge around in while leaving our trusted jeans to gather dust. But secretly, we all wished for things to go back to normal or at least be given a reason to dress up.
Well, to warm our hearts, that wish is almost coming true, and at the forefront of trends for this year are the latest styles in jeans. That’s right. Our age-old fashion pal is back with upgrades that will leave everyone talking about it for years to come. Denim has taken over our lives in ways we could never have imagined, and we know we can’t do without it. Many of the latest denim trends have been reimagined from looks that were popular decades ago. It may sound ancient but believe us; these are trends that rock a vintage 90s look while still looking fresh and upbeat for this decade.
Now, we have listed these trends below for you to check out. So, without further ado, keep scrolling to see which denim trends you should keep an eye out for and how you can style them for 2021.

1. Loose & Ripped Jeans
This grunge-inspired look has been on the fashion scene for a while now, and it’s safe to say, it ain’t going anywhere. You can style it for a super casual event with a simple white t-shirt or with a more structured blazer for a semi-formal look while still keeping that edge. This is by far the coolest denim trend of the year, and we are here for it. Check out some of our favorite pairs of loose and ripped jeans.

2. Straight Leg Jeans
Out with the skinnies (mostly!) and in the straight-leg jeans. These jeans are super easy to wear and don’t require sucking in your tummy to make it fit! This was also a popular 90s style that has made its way back to our generation. Straight jeans are incredibly easy to style and suits every body type. We absolutely love and completely ‘stan’ this trend and here are some of our favorite choices.

3. Slim Boot-Cut Jeans
Boot-cut jeans are making a serious comeback with a slimmer and more sophisticated design. This is one trend we predict seeing a lot of in the year 2021. It is by far our favorite old-school updated version that we’re sure you’ll love as much as we already do. It also looks sinfully elegant with a pair of sleek-heeled ankle boots. The boot-cut was incredibly popular in the 90s and has made a much-needed comeback. Check out some of our favorite pairs below.

4. Colored Jeans
Now we aren’t talking about the crazy loud colors. Instead, the more subtle colors that you probably know about. Of course, blue is a classic and will never go away but colored jeans are all about mixing it up with a more washed and faded hue for an edgy look. Black is also a must-have, but take a leap from your comfort zone and venture into a new playing field with more neutral colors as well as whites and greys.
