While denim is certainly a favorite 12 months out of the year, it’s a particularly apt refresh, come Summer. You’re paring down your wardrobe in a Spring cleaning frenzy, peeling off all the layers that were required of the Winter chill, and slipping into your favorite vintage cut-offs and straight-leg jeans. Denim trends come and go, but with each passing season, there is always an influx of new styles, silhouettes, and washes to try. This season, the latest iteration of denim styles is pulled from decades past, from high-waisted ‘70s pairs to low-slung ‘90s favorites, and more. And then there are classics that we come to love each summer season: white denim, cropped jeans, and trucker jackets, to name a few. Even non-traditional styles like denim midi skirts and knee-length shorts are enjoying a moment in the sun.
To be sure, there is a look to accommodate everyone this season, no matter your style, size, or budget. Ahead, find the top seven denim trends for 2020, and the brands you should be shopping right now. Whether you’re prepping for outdoor brunches with friends later down the road, a solo walk in the park, or simply a feel-good outfit update for all of those waist-up Zoom calls, you’re going to want them all.
