Jenna Ortega Ditched Baggy Jeans in Favor of This Rising Denim Micro-Trend

Jenna Ortega has been out and about this week promoting the latest Scream film and hosting SNL, and we're keeping a close eye on her wardrobe. The 20-year-old actress has become a Gen Z style trailblazer as of late, setting trends and regularly showing that she's not afraid to take risks—even when she's not on the red carpet.

The outfit that's the topic of our discussion this time is one that she wore for a promo shoot and dinner for her SNL hosting gig. For the occasion, Ortega wore a puffer over a velvet vest and a white button-down adorned with a tie (a trend she's worn on several occasions as of late). But it's her jeans that have stayed on our minds. 

Instead of the usual celeb-favorite baggy jeans, Ortega wore a pair of front-seam flared jeans. Pintuck jeans are a denim micro-trend we've come across more and more as of late, as tailored denim re-enters the chat, and Ortega styled them perfectly. Scroll on to shop the '70s-inspired trend for yourself, from brands as wide-ranging as Madewell and Bottega Veneta.
