Our Fashion Crystal Ball Has Predicted These 7 Denim Trends For 2019

Jeans are without a doubt the backbone of our wardrobes. Winter, spring, summer or fall, they're probably the only clothing item we refuse to let go. But over the last few years, we’ve seen the denim front take a turn toward the stale. Skinny jeans continue to be manufactured despite our pleas to let them go. Brands are insistent on designing their own version of vintage 501’s without prevail. Is it too much to ask for jeans that are really, truly new looking?
Apparently not. Our fashion clairvoyant (a.k.a me, scraping through hundreds of photos from the fall/winter '18 runways) has predicted these seven trends for the new year ahead. And my crystal ball (the Internet) shows that we'll be sporting more leg, buttoning more buttons, and sneaking our way into zebra print all year long. So, before you fall victim to another year of faded skinny jeans and ill-fitting Levi-lookalikes, here's everything you need to get in on all this new denim.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
