Jeans wearers have been on quite the rollercoaster ride over the past few seasons. At the start of 2022, straight-leg cuts looked set to remain the most popular choice, yet as the year progressed, we saw jeans getting looser and looser on the catwalk and on Instagram (our two most-trusted sources). Now, in 2023, the leading denim trends sit at two ends of the spectrum: super wide or super skinny.
The latter might set off alarm bells if you, like me, associate skinny jeans with the early 2010s. But this form-fitting style is far from passé; since I've tuned into this revived trend, I've noticed it featured in so many cool, current looks. From simple looks with blazers and flats to more evening-appropriate ensembles, the fashion crowd are making me regret donating all my skinnies to a charity shop a couple of years back.
