The Denim Trend We'll Be Wearing in 2019 Thanks to the Copenhagen Set

Whenever Ganni gets behind a trend, it will usually be everywhere in six months' time. This year, the Copenhagen-based brand has really endorsed one denim silhouette in particular: wide-leg jeans. And when we say "wide," we really mean wide, as these trousers start flaring from the hips and completely cover your shoes.

Ganni's wide-leg jeans are for those looking to make a real fashion statement, as they come in canary yellow, lilac, orange and other paintbox brights. If banana coloured trousers aren't for you, there are more subtle ways to try this trend. In fact, Arket has a pair of dark-wash jeans that are particularly leg-lengthening. Keep scrolling to see how to wear wide-leg jeans; then shop our edit of the best pairs.

1. Go XXL

Style Notes: There seems to be no limit as to how wide to take your wide-leg jeans. This autumn, a lot of the trending pairs (like these ones from Zara) are extreme flares.

2. Make More of a Statement With Colour

Style Notes: This silhouette is already making a statement, so why not have as much fun as possible and play with bold colours? This banana-coloured pair is from Ganni.

3. Keep the Rest Simple

Style Notes: If you aren't a bold dresser, you can still make this trend work for you. Just stick to one colour palette or simple pieces.

4. A Darker Wash Is Really Elegant

Style Notes: If you want something a little more classic, opt for a darker wash (they're especially leg-lengthening).
