Yes I live in my skinny jeans. Guilty as charged. While this skinny staple isn’t going anywhere, it’s high time to update the hardest working section of our wardrobes. From runways to street style, here are spring 2019’s hottest denim trends:

CUTS

1. HIGH-RISE STRAIGHT-LEG

This cut is ruling the pretty much all runways, streets and closets this season. A more forgiving, classic version of its skinny counterpart, it is easy to see why this style is so appealing.  Pair with sneakers for an effortlessly chic look, heels for a more formal flair, or your fave boots for a downtown vibe.

2. WIDE LEG

This bohemian-inspired trend has returned better than ever.

3. BOOTCUT

This classic ‘90s style is back, largely in deeper washes for an ultra-chic look that you can wear both during the day and on your nights out.

STYLES

4. DOUBLE DENIM

The key to getting this style right is picking the right wash. Don’t wear the same shade top and bottom. You need some contrast. If you aren’t feeling ‘blue’, opt for lesser worn shades like white, grey, green or red. Pair a denim jacket with your favourite jeans, or opt for a stylish denim jumpsuit with some slingback pumps for a bit of oomph.

5. PAPER-BAG WAIST

The Paper-bag waist trend has now come for our currently favoured, high-waisted denim. The awesome thing about this style is that you can wear them for just about any occasion. Tuck in a pretty tee for a chic weekend look, or pair with a blazer and pumps to rock ur workday ensemble.

6. DISTRESSED

For those who are just dabbling in distress, an unfinished hem will add just the right touch of edginess. For those who want to make a statement, slashed styles are the way to go.

7. EXPOSED FLY

If you want to add some edge to an outfit, exposed-fly detailing is the way to go. This retro trend looks best with cropped jeans.
