6 Denim Styling Trends: Will Give You Fresh Look in 2023
People of all ages can easily personalise their appearance and sense of style using jeans as the ideal blank canvas. Even timeless wardrobe essentials go out of style. A straight fit in a genuine blue colour will undoubtedly remain popular, but there are other eye-catching cuts, trendy designs, and particular decade-old washes that come and go. In 2023, the ankle and distressed styling, including patchwork and unfinished hems, will be trendy. Pleated trousers, dramatic wide-legs, and form-fitting boot cuts—all striking styles from the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s—will also be in style.
As Denim Show acts as the marquee trade show in the Denim value chain of India that encompasses the latest innovations and trends in the denim industry, we take a look at the denim fashion and styling trends that will be prevalent in 2023:
The 6 Denim Styling Trends You Can Wear in 2023
High Rise, Wide Leg Denim With Bootcut Flares
High rise wide leg jeans are a style of women’s jeans that sit high on the waist and have a wide, flare-like cut from the knee down to the ankle. This style is characterised by a flattering and comfortable fit that elongates the legs and balances the proportions of the body. The high waist provides coverage and support, while the wide leg opening creates a breezy and relaxed silhouette. High rise wide leg jeans can be dressed up or down, making them a versatile and popular choice in women’s fashion. According to fashion experts, you should contrast the prolonged hemline of your high-rise, wide-leg jeans with a shorter top or a V-neck tee.
Pro styling tip:
To complete the retro theme, look for a small flare from the knee all the way to the feet. You can see your shoes with a bootcut length, so choosing the right pair will be important for the balance of your ensemble, whether you choose a pointed-toe flat, a look from the early 2000s with sporty sneakers, or platform boots to lengthen your legs.
Neutral Tone (Gray, Off-White and Beige) Jeans
Jeans with a neutral tone are those in colours like beige, white, grey, and black that are seen as neutral and adaptable. As they are simple to coordinate with other items in one’s wardrobe, these hues are a sensible and low-maintenance option for casual or elegant occasions. Neutral-coloured jeans give accessories and other outfit components a blank slate, enabling a broad variety of personal styles and expressions. Additionally, they are a traditional and timeless option that never goes out of style.
Pro styling tip:
Choose something with stretch because no one wants to be wearing thick, unbreathable denim jeans that pinch in all the wrong places. All of your other apparel instantly feels new again when you put on an excellent pair of neutral denim jeans. To complete your outfit and highlight your fashion, go for a dark or contrasting top.
Workwear Inspired Vintage Jeans/ Carpenter Jeans
Workwear-inspired jeans are a subset of fashionable jeans that draw their inspiration from classic workwear trends like those worn by manual workers and tradespeople. They frequently have robust construction, tough materials, and useful accents like tool hooks, extra pockets, and reinforced knees. Workwear-inspired jeans are made with an emphasis on comfort and durability and are intended to be both functional and fashionable. These jeans are well-liked by those who value practical and classic style since they frequently feature a distinctive, vintage-inspired appearance that reflects the classic style of traditional working clothing.
Pro styling tip:
To stand out from the crowd, you could go for double denim by wearing a top and bottom that are both inspired by workwear (just be sure to mix up the shades). If you’re not familiar with double denim, start by pairing a pair of blue stonewashed jeans with an off-white denim jacket.
Denim trousers are pants made of denim fabric with a twill weave. From high-waisted and wide-legged designs through to pleated pairs, these are jeans with a tailored difference and are going to be a hit style in 2023. They are a well-liked and adaptable category of casual attire that can be dressed up or down. They are also renowned for their comfort and toughness. Wide leg, slim, straight, bootcut, and other designs of denim trousers are available, along with a variety of colours and washes. Although they are frequently linked to the “blue jeans” aesthetic, they are also available in other hues like black, white, and grey. Many people’s closets must have a pair of denim trousers because they are a classic piece of casual clothing.
Pro styling tip:
Trouser jeans work aesthetically well with canvas sneakers and penny loafers. Work with the high/low style and pair the pleats with a knitted polo shirt, a baseball cap, and vintage running shoes to create an interesting juxtaposition with the pleats’ opposition to the casual nature of the denim fabric.
Denim pants that have undergone the stone washing procedure to give them a faded, worn-in appearance are known as stonewash jeans. In order to soften the fabric and give the jeans a distressed look, this method entails washing the jeans with stones or pumice. In comparison to conventional raw denim jeans, the resulting stonewashed jeans feel softer, are more relaxed, and have a more laid-back appearance. Stonewashed jeans can be found in a variety of colours, from light to dark, and in various leg widths. They are renowned for their ease and adaptability and are a preferred option for casual attire.
Pro styling tip:
Stonewashed denim pairs well with t-shirts, sweatshirts, polo shirts, and sneakers, whereas lighter washes frequently look better when paired with other light colours and delicate neutrals like white and ecru rather than glaring black.
Oversized/ Relaxed Denim Jackets
Relaxed denim jackets are a type of denim jacket that are designed to have a loose, comfortable fit. They often feature a casual and laid-back silhouette, with a roomy cut that is wider in the body and sleeves. This relaxed fit is meant to provide a more relaxed and casual look than the more form-fitting style of traditional denim jackets. Relaxed denim jackets can be found in a range of washes, from light to dark, and can be paired with a variety of outfits for a range of looks. They are often seen as a staple item in casual and streetwear fashion, and are known for their versatility and effortless style.
Pro styling tip:
Relaxed denim jackets are versatile and can be styled in a variety of ways. Women can pair their denim jackets with a dress and heels for a dressed-up look that’s still casual and comfortable, whereas men can wear their relaxed denim jacket with a t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers for a casual, streetwear-inspired everyday look. Layering your oversized denim jacket over a sweater or hoodie can create a warm and cozy look.
