From time to time (pretty much every season, it seems), there's a trend that everyone and their mother seems to invest in. For example, I think it's going to be chain-link jewelry that everyone will buy in to—just a hunch. A few years ago, it was raw-hem jeans, and now I bet there are donation bins all over that are being filled with the once-massive trend. I know this because I am one of the people who might have overinvested in the trend, and it seems I'm not the only one who's grown tired of it. I reached out to Who What Wear's commerce strategist who confirmed that "so far this year, we’ve seen the biggest declines in raw-hem jeans at about 34% compared to this time last year." So the last time I went to purge my denim stack, I found myself with a lot more pairs of raw-edge jeans than I knew what to do with.
Luckily, having to buy new jeans isn't exactly the worst problem to have, and there are plenty of current denim trends that have struck a chord with me. Also, luckily for you, I've been chronicling them, so scroll on to see the five new denim trends that I'm replacing my frayed-edge jeans with.
In case you haven't heard, relaxed jeans are the number one trend of 2020. With the current situation, the comfortable slouchy fit is all I want to wear right now.
