As we inch closer and closer to 2023, our sartorial minds continue to shift to the trends that will dominate in the New Year. On that note, we recently covered the handbag styles and more daring looks that are sure to reign supreme among the style crowd. Next up, we thought we’d cover the best 2023 denim trends. After all, jeans are often one of the most important and versatile pieces in a wardrobe.

For more on the trending relaxed cuts and more, keep scrolling for further insight into 2023 denim trends. You’ll also uncover visual inspiration and product recommendations if you’re interested in adding a new pair of jeans to your wardrobe to kick off the New Year.

A pair of classic blue jeans will always hit, but two-tone styles (like jeans that have both lighter and darker washes) will be front-runners among the fashion crowd.
