Zara has its share of controversial trends stocked at any given time. It doesn't play it safe, and that's one of the many things we love about the brand. We're regularly on the lookout for new arrivals that shoppers will lose it over and that will subsequently sell out. Oftentimes, those trends are somewhat polarizing, and that's what makes them stand out. Speaking of, the latest denim trend that's sure to spark some strong reactions is one of the elastic-waist variety.
Earlier this month, I pointed out that the elastic-waist jean trend had made a comeback on Net-a-Porter, which predicts plenty of denim trends each season. I've been on the lookout for more examples, and lo and behold, Zara just released its own take on the trend: Zara's feature a high waist, black wash, and a far-from-subtle elastic waist. Not only that, they also check the baggy-jean trend box and the comfort box. Oh, and they're $50. I'm predicting this combination will sell out quickly.
