Light Washes

Trendsetters are favoring light washes nowadays. Coastal shoppers are sporting a healthy mix of light and dark jeans, probably because they prefer to embrace the seasonal shades.

Working from home is still “in.” And because there’re no leaving the house, they can lean toward a more comfortable wardrobe. That leads us to the reintroduction of baggy denim. Not only are baggy jeans breathable, but they encapsulate an effortless, relaxed vibe.

The low-rise trend has officially returned, even though most millennials begged for it to stay buried for another decade. The good thing about the re-emergence of this trend is that options are no longer scarce; you can choose from so many variations ranging from fitted to baggy and everything in between.

Straight Leg

Fashionistas still holding onto skinny jeans have another alternative: straight-leg jeans. These beauties have stood the test of time but often don’t get noticed for their versatility and style. Practical and classic, straight-leg jeans can help you achieve any look you want with maximum comfort.

Our Pick: Zara High-Rise Five-Pocket Straight-Leg Jeans ($49.90, shop here)

Slitted Hems

A few seasons ago, the side-slit style took the fashion world by surprise. The trend has once again gained popularity. Ranging from simple to intricate, with details like zippers or embroidery, these popular creations aren’t expected to go anywhere anytime soon. So pull out your fancy shoes to show them off via side slits this fall.

Our Pick: Joe’s The Hi Honey Slit Hem Jeans ($198, shop here)

Flared jeans (both ’90s-style low-waisted flares are ’70s-inspired high-waisted boot cuts) are back, and they’re packing a punch! You can wear them with a matching crop top or a dress – the sky’s the limit in this fashion category.

Our Pick: Revice Venus Flares ($98, shop here)

Cargo Jeans

Cargo jeans with oversized pockets used to serve a functional purpose, but now, they’re purely a fashion statement. These bad boys go best with a crop top and chunky boots for an easily achievable 1990s look.

Our Pick: Shein High-Waisted Flap Pocket Cargo Jeans ($26, shop here)
