The fall 2019 runways were rife with exciting trends, from slouchy suits to utilitarian silhouettes, sumptuous leather separates, and pistachio hues. But it’s the hardest-working item in our closet we’re taking a closer look at today—jeans. There were some refreshing denim trends that emerged from top designers—from leg-lengthening silhouettes to high cinched waists and rich indigo hues.
Head-to-toe denim looks were also omnipresent—at Chloé sleeveless vest jackets were paired with matching boot cut jeans, Dior opted for denim shirt-and-pleated skirt combos, while Lemaire created a sleek and streamlined look made up of a long-sleeved denim top and a pair of roomie, straight-leg jeans. If you’re eager to stay ahead of the denim curve, scroll below to see the biggest denim trends we spotted on the fall runways and shop the looks before everyone else.
Baggy and slouchy jeans have been stealing the spotlight this spring, and while the trend is sure to remain strong throughout the year, this fall we’ll see the return of a slimmer silhouette—particularly striking when tucked into over-the-knee boots as seen at Celine.
Leg-lengthening jeans were seen folded and cuffed at the hems, creating an edgy utilitarian aesthetic, as seen here at Chloé. It’s a refreshing way to breathe new life into your denim.

From corduroy to bell-bottoms and earthy hues, ’70s-era styles infiltrated the fall runways, and where denim is concerned, that means boot-cut and slightly flared silhouettes are back.
From Chloé to Lemaire, Calvin Luo and Christian Dior, darker saturated hues of indigo reigned supreme on the runways—we can’t think of a more perfect denim update as the seasons change.

A fashion-girl favorite—this trendy silhouette continues to remain a staple in our wardrobes this year. Accentuate the high waist with a bold belt (an accessory that was omnipresent throughout fashion month).
Denim on Denim
Denim is a staple in our wardrobes, so why not wear it from head to toe? The wearable iterations that came out of the fall runways are quickly convincing us to give this look a go. The sleek denim shirt and long straight jeans at Lemaire provided a streamlined silhouette so polished you could even wear it to work.
Show off your gorgeous knee-high boots this fall with trending loose-fit culottes cinched at the waist. Flattering and fresh for the new season ahead.
