Denim Trends That Will Dominate in 2022
From slim-fits to straight-cut, from dark-wash to faded --- here’s how to wear this go-to garment.
After taking the backseat to sweatpants and pajama bottoms, everyone’s favourite pair is making a post-Covid comeback! And while the styles change according to trends (raise your hand if you rocked the low-waisted skinnies and belly-covering mum-jeans), a great pair of denim is an unstoppable classic that belongs in your closet lineup.
This season, the denim trend is keeping the comfy along with the chic.
We’ve seen a transition from ultra-skinny jeans to a host of other styles. From joggers to jeggings, to ripped and distressed --- it’s all about figure-flattering fits and a more relaxed look.
Our fashion experts have done the legwork to help get you started. Here are the top three jean trends of 2022 and how to style them!
Snag Yourself A Super Sleek Straight-Cut
It’s the return of the relaxed fit of the 90s. As seen on the runways and on celebrities, this uber-popular style is the official must-have pair in our wardrobe!
Wondering how to make this trend work for you? For a more put-together casual look, choose a straight-cut boyfriend jean with a cuffed ankle paired with a tucked-in tee. Layer on a nice jean jacket to nail another trend we’re seeing everywhere --- denim on denim.
Headed for a night out? Swap out your light-washed ripped jeans during the day with one in a darker shade, like these super flattering high-rise jean. Slip on a slinky camisole and some strappy heels and you’re good to go!
The best thing about this trans-seasonal staple is its versatility. You can wear it in a multitude of colors, washes, and styles to fit your lifestyle.
Effortlessly Cool in Joggers
We have a soft spot for the utilitarian look of the cargo pants. It’s the sister style to the relaxed jean that’s definitely worth adding to your wardrobe.
Slap on a pair and everything from your mood to your mobility will improve. This streetwear staple is even cooler in denim and comes in super comfy cuts and chic iterations.
Our pick is a relaxed jogger jeans in a light-wash. Extra points for form-hugging stretchy fabric and an elastic waist that lets you get things done without looking frumpy.
Elevate the ‘oomph’ factor with a darker shade of chinos paired with boots and some animal print.
Say Goodbye to Skinnies? Not Quite Yet.
We can’t deny the appeal of a great pair of skinny jeans. If you still love sporting your skinnies, we’re right there with you! Done right, it can make any girl look (and feel!) sexy, elegant, and undeniably stylish.
Pull off the skinny jean this year without creating a fashion faux pas by choosing a jegging with high-quality, high stretch fabric in a super dark wash. This look goes perfectly well with light knits and boots or wear them to the office with a striped button-down shirt, suede jacket, and pumps.
The perfect pair of jeans can stand alone or let a statement top shine. They can be dressed up or down and can almost be worn year-round. So yes, it’s worth getting excited over these trending styles! We are too!
Ready those credit cards, ladies --- it’s high time to treat yourself to a timeless classic!
