Jacob Davis invented denim in 1873. Although Jeans were originally designed for miners, several films in the 1950s popularized them as casual wear. And they have remained in fashion ever since.
While Jeans remain an evergreen wardrobe staple, the trending styles and cuts of Jeans change every year. The best Denim trends of 2021 are:
- Loose and Distressed Jeans
The fashion world is obsessed with loose-fitting ripped jeans. Like any ripped jeans, these have been manufactured to appear like they’ve been worn in.
The loose fitting further adds to its laid-back look. The loose and distressed jeans are very versatile and can fit most occasions.
A sweatshirt and sneakers will give you a hippie look, while layers and oxford shoes give you a tomboy look. You can also dress this up with heels, a shirt, and a jacket to make it a business casual outfit.
- Light-washed Jeans
The dark-colored washes are on a decline as lighter washes are making a comeback. Light-washed jeans go well with white, khaki, or camel tops.
You may also go for a maroon or wine-red top if you are into dark colors. You can then finish the look with light-colored footwear like cream, gray, or white trainers. Light-brown desert boots will dress up the outfit.
- Printed Jeans
We all are used to seeing patterned or printed tops and shirts. Somebody applied it onto jeans. And we’re glad they did.
You can wear patterned jeans throughout the year. These jeans are quite vibrant and need to be paired with neutral colors to make the outfit a bit subtle. So, you can go for a chevron, polka-dotted, or striped top. You can complete the look with sneakers or boots.
- Slim Bootcut Jeans
This year’s trends suggest your jeans must hang low but not sag. These jeans are supposed to hug your legs and should be long enough to touch the floor.
These jeans are available in several washes, and the dark wash is suited for all seasons. You can complement them with a casual tee and a blazer or jacket to finish a business casual look. Blazers will make you appear taller and make your legs look longer.
You may opt for heeled boots or mules depending on how long you wish to make your jeans appear.
- High-rise Buckled Jeans
The High-rise Buckled Jeans are known for their loose and straight-leg fit. The waist is pretty high. You can choose any of the many washes they come in.
You can wear a jacket and heels to dress up the outfit. You can make the outfit ultra-baggy by tightening the buckle at the ankle. This is arguably the hottest denim trend of the year!
- Loose Jeans
When we think loose jeans, it takes us back to the early 2000s where skater boys used to sport oversized jeans. But these jeans are far chicer than that.
The Loose Jeans are the bottom wear counterparts of the sweatshirt. The details of utilities like the zip and the pockets add to the visual aspect.
While the blue denim is the safest bet, unconventional hues will make heads turn. You can pair these with narrow shoes and a figure-hugging top to complete a loungewear outfit.
- High-waisted Baggy Cargo Jeans
These are similar to loose jeans but also have some cargo details and are quite high on the waist. They are available in many hues and washes.
These go well with crop tops and cardigans as they complement the baggy fit. You may also choose to tuck in your blouse or tee. Sneakers will complete the casual lounging look. You can also sport a jacket with booties to dress up the outfit.
