Whether you’re a fan of the fashion from the decade or not, the polarizing trends of the ’80s have made their way back into the cycle of 2018 trends. Trends like color-block sweaters, neon, and shoulder pads are proving to be officially cool again, but there’s one trend in particular that we are rather shocked to see making a comeback: pleated jeans.

Perhaps AC Slater was really onto something when he sported the style and paired them with graphic Hawaiian-style shirts on Saved by the Bell. Although this detail is a small one, it's one your parents will appreciate, as well as your most fashionable friends. Thanks to the likes of influencers, celebrities, and It girls across the board, this ’80s denim trend is officially back and being styled in ways that make the trend feel fresh again. To show you what we mean, we gathered some of the best pleated jeans on the market for you to try this fall. Keep scrolling to see them all.

These will definitely take your denim game up to the next level.
