From J.Lo to Gigi, Celebrities Are Backing These Jeans Trends for 2024

Jeans are widely accepted as a wardrobe staple; something which transcends trends and seasons. Nonetheless, each year, certain cuts, washes and waist heights emerge as frontrunners. Baggy silhouettes and cargo styles dominated this year—but what's in store for 2024?

We've turned to a handful of well-dressed celebrities for guidance. These A-listers have their fingers on the fashion pulse, and we know that if they're spotted wearing a look, it's probably worth paying attention to. Expect exaggerated flares from J.Lo, a fresh take on double denim from Tracee Ellis Ross and a noughties throwback from Anne Hathaway, as well as some tamer trends to suit minimalists (thanks, Gigi). Jeans come in all shapes and sizes but one thing is for sure: they're not going anywhere anytime soon.

Whether you're keen to try a new cut come January or are simply curious about the future of denim, scroll on to see celebrities' favourite jeans trends for 2024.

Style Notes: A cosy fairisle knit plus a pair of loose-fitting jeans is a comfy combination we can get behind. J.Lo's belted cardigan cleverly gives shape to what would otherwise be quite a slouchy look.

2. Slim Flare Jeans

Style Notes: Sophie Turner provides a lesson in styling denim tonally. The dreamy blue palette aside, this ensemble has been carefully considered: the slim flare silhouette mirrors the hourglass shape of her blazer, and the pointed-toe heels continue the elongating effect.

3. Dark Wash Jeans

Style Notes: Indigo, grey and black jeans are becoming steadily more popular. Perhaps it's the dressy feel they lend to a look, or the fact that they complement both neutral and bright shades.

4. Turn-Up Jeans

Style Notes: An easy way to add some interest to your outfit? Choose jeans with a turn-up hem—and for bonus points, style them with a matching denim trench coat, like Tracee Ellis Ross.

5. Stonewash Jeans

Style Notes: In a throwback to the noughties, celebrities are embracing stone- and acid-washed jeans. The worn-in look is easily incorporated into casual outfits, but we've also seen it elevated with a blazer.

Freelance Fashion Editor

Bébhinn Campbell is an Edinburgh-based fashion and lifestyle writer. After receiving an Audrey Hepburn box set for her 10th birthday and subsequently swooning over the actor’s wardrobe, Bébhinn felt pretty confident she wanted a career that involved clothes. She started her first blog at age 14—the title was a pun, but we’ll leave it at that—and went on to intern at print and digital publications in Berlin and London, including Dazed & Confused and Indie magazine

A job at a fashion startup took Bébhinn from Ireland to Scotland in 2019, where she now works as a freelance journalist and copywriter covering everything from travel and interiors to styling advice. As a contributor for Who What Wear, Bébhinn always keeps her eyes peeled for emerging trends and looks worth writing about. She prides herself on her ability to cut through the noise and identify solid investment buys, exciting new brands and updated takes on classic designs. 

While she still loves Audrey Hepburn films, these days, Bébhinn’s sartorial taste sits closer to Annie Hall’s and Alexa Chung’s. In her spare time, she’s likely cooing over cute dogs on rescue websites, playing folk songs on her guitar and browsing bookshops for new additions to her already-overpacked shelves.
