If Celebs Aren't Wearing Skinny Jeans, They're Wearing This Denim Trend

If Celebs Aren't Wearing Skinny Jeans, They're Wearing This Denim Trend

As one of the more polarizing trends out there, people tend to either love or loathe skinny jeans. Celebs specifically? Well, the most stylish A-listers out there—Chrissy Teigen, Hailey Rhode Bieber, and the like—continue to consistently step out in skinnies. That said, this crew is also flipping the switch this season by wearing the complete opposite denim trend: light-wash baggy jeans.

With the ’90s resurgence infiltrating the industry right now, it’s really not a surprise to see this trend crop up in such a major way with celebrities like Rita Ora, Kaia Gerber, and Dakota Johnson embracing the look in their off-duty lives. To get a better sense of what we mean, keep scrolling to check out how stars are styling baggy jeans now, and shop inspired styles if you’re ready to give your skinnies a break, too.

This Hated Denim Trend Is Coming Back With a Vengeance in 2019

This Hated Denim Trend Is Coming Back With a Vengeance in 2019

There’s nothing that gets people heated in quite the same way as a good old controversial denim trend. Let’s not forget that before they became your go-tos, skinny jeans were also a massive source of anxiety. Prior to 2009, people were just not comfortable with the idea of body-hugging denim the way they are now. This is to preface what I’m about to tell you with the notion that every denim trend is considered deranged before it’s eventually accepted en masse. So here it goes: Bootcut jeans are making a return, and—shocker—the internet is all kinds of divided on the topic.

After GQ published a story about the denim trend’s comeback, Twitter went off. Some claimed that the revival of bootcut jeans is equivalent to the apocalypse while others proudly admitted to having never ditched them in the first place. Tempted to go down a rabbit hole of opinions? The … Read the rest

What to Wear With Jeans When It's So Hot You Can't

What to Wear With Jeans When It's So Hot You Can't

As far as I’m concerned, there are two kinds of people in this world… There are those who read this headline and think: Why even wear jeans when it’s so hot anyway? Then there are those who feel that wearing denim is not a choice but a lifestyle (and thus a year-round endeavor). If you fall into the latter category, you’ll want to stay with me. I can’t part with my beloved (drawer full of) jeans no matter what the season is, but as you can imagine, the outfits become more of a struggle in summer when staying cool slides into first place on our list of priorities—at least in hot, humid NYC.

This Is Officially the Most Underrated Denim Trend of the Summer

This Is Officially the Most Underrated Denim Trend of the Summer

Wearing jeans in the summertime isn’t for everyone, but should it be, and we have just the denim trend for you to try before the beloved season comes to an end. Since we already dished on the best summer jeans across the board, we figured why not single out a trend that weirdly not enough people talk about—ecru and off-white jeans. If stark white jeans scare you (which I totally get), then this creamier version is the style to try ASAP. 

This summer, we love how fashion girls have been opting for more oversize and straight-leg versions, especially when some contrast stitching is involved. These jeans are just unique enough to feel and look like a pair of cool pants. In other words, you could literally wear jeans every day of the week and easily get away with it. Ahead, check out how fashion girls are styling ecru and off-white … Read the rest

But the wardrobe staple that steals the number one spot is, you guessed it, a pair of skinny jeans.
