12 Denim Trends We Are Completely Obsessed With

Although denim is already a staple in most of our wardrobes, the newest spring and summer 2020 collections prove that this material is the IT item and has never looked cuter. Especially trending these days are nostalgic denim pieces from past decades, head to toe denim outfits, as well as brands emphasizing their sustainable practices in fashion. So even though skinny jeans are still here, there are a bunch of new styles that you must see, and here are 12 of them.

Cropped denim culottes


Culottes are perfect for days when you can’t choose between a skirt or wide-leg jeans, and they also look flattering on all shapes and sizes. Although culottes may be considered more casual, you can elevate the look to make it appropriate for any business setting. The only thing you need to do is to pair them with some tights, high booties, and a blouse, and your look will be ready to go.


As we all know denim jumpsuits peaked back in the early 2000s when J.Lo wore them. However, now they’re back with a twist. The jumpsuit is roomier and more relaxed than before; they’re workwear-inspired and more industrial looking than we have seen them in the past. For a dinner with friends, pair it with some heels and hoops to achieve that perfect laid-back look.                           

70s flare


This trend proves the old-as-time saying that fashion styles always make their way back. The 1970s-inspired flared jeans are available in different rises, colors, and flare sizes than ever before. They are a great choice for outdoor events like music festivals or winery nights. Capture your ultimate Boheme vibe by pairing them with a flowy floral blouse.

The jean jacket is an all-time wardrobe essential. The newest version of this classic piece comes with a twist — now you can get it cropped! From ripped details to hacked off hem, this modern-day approach feels fashion-forward yet retro at the same time. This jacket is the perfect partner for a fitted dress.

Ripped & Distressed


The 1990s gave us ripped and distressed jeans, but 2020 starts off with adding some edge with more frays and rips. Distressed jeans demand your attention with more shredding and more severe cuts. A fitted tank and some booties are perfect to complement this style.



One of the major slimming jeans styles making their mark are the striped jeans. Moreover, pinstripes are the go-to jeans if you’re interested in making your legs look longer. They are currently being sold in styles like mom jeans, straight leg, as well as flare. You’ll feel an immediate confidence boost wearing these with a crop top or a T-shirt and leather jacket. 

Paper bag jeans


One of the most comfortable denim styles of the season are paper bag jeans. This style sits just above the belly button and usually comes with a belt that cinches it. To top it off, you can show your curves off by balancing a form-fitted top with them. 

Dad jeans

Previously, we had boyfriend jeans, then mom jeans, but the latest ones are called dad jeans. If your dad has been rocking the same clothes since the 90s, you might just find a pair in his closet. They are relaxed, slouchy, and slightly oversized. A fitted turtleneck or blazer complements these nicely. 

Denim bags


When the fashion industry envisioned head-to-toe denim for 2020, they certainly meant it. This season, you’ll not only find denim jeans but also denim wristlets, backpacks, satchels, totes and belt bags in all different tones and styles. They are decorated to the max with standout hardware and logos as well as monograms of designers. These are the ultimate accessory!

Colored denim


Colored denim is often seen on the runway in monochromatic looks and single standout pieces, like psychedelic tie-dye jeans and cropped denim jackets. In order to complement the lively shades of your outfit, match your shoes and jewelry to the metallic color of the buttons on your denim. 

Two-tone jeans

Steal the spotlight with these contemporary two-tone jeans this season! Usually constructed from the denim from different garments, these are the kind of jeans that will have you living your best life because they’ll be completely unique. Wear these with a simple plain T-shirt and some white converse sneakers.

Denim dress


Next time you have denim day at your job, go bold with today’s version of the denim dress. Designers have taken the traditional jean shirt and elongated it into a shirt-dress. The styles available include shift, mini, and midi, and they all have a bit of sexiness to them. If you pair it with a small heel, you’ll have an effortless all-day style. 

Denim has always been an important item in all of our wardrobes and all signs point to it staying that way. These styles are some of the newest additions to the denim collection of 2020. Hence, you should definitely look into them.
