This '90s Denim Trend Is Back From the Dead

Over the years, we’ve seen a number of denim trends come and go and then come back again. In the past year alone, both wide-leg denim and mom jeans have re-reigned supreme (and despite our best efforts to keep them in the past, low-rise cuts are still a thing). Now, we’re seeing another old-school favorite come back from the dead—boot-cut jeans.

During a time where tube tops and chokers were literally everywhere (i.e., the ’90s), this slightly flared style was a major fashion staple. However, this time around, the fashion industry is taking a new approach to the trend. Ranging from cropped kick-flare iterations to full-length cuts, let your current wardrobe have an old-school update with a pair of boot-cut jeans. Ahead, we’ve gathered our favorite boot-cut jeans on the market for you to shop. Style them with a pair of boots to give a nod to their namesake, or throw on some classic heels for a more polished approach. Check them out below.

Just add a blazer and tee for an effortlessly chic look.

Lean into the french-girl aesthetic and pair a slightly cropped pair with boots and a striped tee.

A faded black pair is perfect for the colder months.

A darker wash is easy to dress up or down.

Split cut hems add a fresh touch.

You can never go wrong with a classic black pair.

We'd like to style this with a shacket and sweater.

We could see Emily Ratajowski wearing these.
