Denim trends: 6 denim styles that will be ruling in 2023 according to experts

Jan 02, 2023 04:19 PM IST

From bootcut flares to patchwork jeans, check out top denim trends that you must add to your jeans collection in 2023.

Jeans are a perfect blank canvas. Trends come and go, even with classic wardrobe staples. While there is no doubt that a straight fit in a true-blue shade will remain popular, there are certain head-turning cuts, in-the-moment silhouettes, and specific decade-old washes that cycle in and out of fashion. The ankle and distressed treatments ranging from unfinished hems to redone patchwork will be popular in 2023. Pleated trousers, dramatic wide-legs, and formfitting boot cuts are also going to be popular, with these eye-catching silhouettes dating back to the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Meanwhile, the early-aughts low-rise is coming back, with celebrities favouring the look, especially when paired with a visible logo brief or a strappy thong pulled high to achieve hip cleavage.

Look for a slight flare from the knee down to the feet in this '70s throwback style. With a bootcut length, you'll be able to see your shoes, so whether you go for a pointed-toe flat, an early-aughts look with sporty sneakers, or platform boots to elongate your legs, your footwear will be crucial for outfit balance.

3. Modular/cargo jeans

Cargo pants, a utilitarian trend from the 1990s, are back in full force. Allow the off-duty look to infiltrate your denim collection this season, ranging from tailored high-waisted styles to slouchy, baggy silhouettes with unrivalled nostalgia.

Consider tapered-leg jeans for a looser leg through the thigh that comes to a polished nip at the ankle, another relic from the '90s. This slightly bow-legged style adds interest to your outfit and goes well with combat boots.

5. Wide-leg jeans

Go big if you're going to go big. This season, go all-in on the ultra wide-leg jeans trend that drags behind you and almost completely covers your shoes.

6. Patchwork jeans
