If we can all agree on one thing for this Spring 2024 season, it is that pared-back everyday dressing remains essential—and jeans continue to be one of the key items in your wardrobe to achieve that. The Spring 2024 denim trends dictacte that while flare and wide-leg jeans persist as favourites, the season sees refined updates to mom jeans and high waists, infusing them with newness and a touch of luxury.

This season also revisits some past favourites like cargo trousers and maxi skirts, while skinny jeans remain noticeably absent. Industry experts suggest skinny jeans won’t be returning any time soon. However, denim’s timeless nature means skinny jeans can still look fabulous if you style it in a way that works for you.

There is versatility in shape and also in wash, rise, and length, which means you can find countless options for various occasions and styles. For example, in recent seasons, the return of the Y2K trend has brought back low-rise jeans. Initially met with scepticism, this controversial style has gradually made its way back onto the runways, though high-rise jeans  still remain the most popular.

While lighter shades are still very much in, dark wash jeans harmonise beautifully with similar tones and lend a more formal vibe. This season, consider a monochromatic look with relaxed, dark jeans and a matching sports jersey for a comfortable yet stylish ensemble, as presented by Sabato de Sarno.

For those keen to explore the top denim trends of 2024, here are some key styles:

Barrel Leg

This silhouette offers a balance between structured form and comfort, making it a novel choice due to its unique shape and loose fit. Usually cut to be high-waisted, these come in all different washes, and their slim ankle and looser cut around the knee seem to perfectly blend a combination of relaxed and sleek.

Closed Jeans

Offering a fresh take on classic cuts, these jeans are perfect for those who love a bit of quirk in their wardrobe. Jean trends are veering less towards the distressed styles and more toward tailored, refined, and modern shapes. Various iterations of this high-waisted, wide-leg crop style have been popping up everywhere, from Dior to Everlane.

Extreme Flare: This cut makes a bold statement, featuring a snug fit until about midway down the calf, at which point the fabric flares out far from the ankle to create an eye-catching A-shape. Blame the myriad of boho inspirations, but we’re glad because this style flatters nearly every shape.
