So I think it's safe to say that you're about to become a loyal follower of our latest series where we dish on all the new jean styles that launched this month.

We’ve reached out to a handful of our favorite denim brands to find out what they’ve been up to the past month and the styles they are most excited about. Consider this your go-to for the freshest silhouettes, washes, and technology happening in the denim world. From vintage-inspired fits to the '90s jean short trend you're about to see a lot more of this summer, below you'll find the best recently launched denim styles.

Good American

"The trend right now is all about the straight-leg denim, but the vintage look and rigid feel don't work for most bodies—hence why we launched Good Vintage! For this new fit, our designers took a fresh approach to the popular high-rise, straight silhouette and created a new flattering (not stiff!) denim style that hugs your hips and butt in all the right spots, flattens your tummy, and won't gap." — Emma Grede, Co-Founder and CEO

J Brand

“Looks like a rigid feels like a stretch. The Jules launched as our solution to the rigid craze. We took our time with the development to make sure it was perfect—since we are known for skinny, this style is [sort of] uncharted territory. Everyone from supermodel Elsa Hosk to blogger Lucy Williams to actress Freida Pinto has adopted the style for spring. From light to dark indigos to pure white and a black that won’t fade, this is the new core jean every closet needs.”  — Mary Peffer, VP of Global Marketing & Brand Creative

“For the die-hard skinny jean wearer, the Lillie is THE silhouette for spring. A high-rise with an exposed button fly, the Lillie is offered in our best-selling new Photo Ready HD fabric to ensure the most flattering silhouette wear after wear.”  — Mary Peffer


"The Re/Done x Levi's High Rise Loose is the personal favorite of the entire Re/DoneE team. We initially launched the High Rise Loose in original denim for fall 2018, and it has quickly become our most popular style. We've been most intrigued with long and loose jeans at the moment, so it was organic to transition this style to our Levi's program." — Sujin Lee, Executive Designer


"Some of our strongest fits have relaxed silhouettes. We’ve taken our most coveted fit, the Parker Vintage Cut Off Short, and introduced a pant version called the Parker Straight Jean, which is worn as a true relaxed cigarette." — Erin Meehan, Design Director

"Biker shorts have been a big trend, and we wanted to evolve this silhouette into denim. The Rumi is extremely flattering with its perfect mid-length and slight ease in the thigh. The denim fabrication helps it look a bit more considered and less like activewear." — Erin Meehan

"The Carrie short was inspired by Carrie Bradshaw! She was a big fan of a capris and looked amazing in them. We loved the idea of doing a denim version with a cut off hem. Rather than just cutting a shorter inseam of a jean, we shaped the thigh and knee to create a sophisticated shape that looks great with a T-shirt or dressed up with a blazer and a heel." — Erin Meehan


"Inspired by '90s rave jeans blended with a hint of sophistication, our Massive Jeans make a statement. They are intended to be worn slouched low on the hips, giving them effortless wearability. The loose flare looks amazing with a slim ribbed top or a pretty eyelet blouse to balance the silhouette." — Jill Guenza, Vice President of Global Women’s Design

"The Ribcage Cropped Flare is the ultimate pair of spring jeans. The super-high rise (the highest of any pair of jeans we make!), the slightly kicked-out flare, and the cropped length make them the perfect jeans to wear with pretty tops and dad sneakers. Great for high/low styling." — Jill Guenza


“Summer is definitely a fun time and for our splash 19 collection, I wanted to bring some of that fun and unexpectedness into the line. This month we are introducing two 'over the rainbow’ styles based on one of our best-selling bodies, The Hustler. These new styles feature rainbow embroidery that wraps around the front pockets and drops down the back of the jean.” — Tim Kaeding, Co-Founder and Creative Director

"We are very excited about our soft pastel colored jacket-and-shorts sets in yellow (Sundream) and pink (Rosewater). We are calling it our version of a summer suit because you can literally wear it from the city to your weekend getaway while always looking casual yet polished. Our designers really killed it with this because they expertly crafted these denim pieces to make sure they fit amazing on every body (a relief for girls like me who are absolutely petrified of shorts). Plus, the fabric is lightweight, sustainable, and ultra flattering." — Sarah Ahmed, CEO


“I’m obsessed with this cool-girl take on a bicycle short. The longer inseam is flattering on so many body types yet it still speaks to the effortless but sexy California lifestyle essence of our brand.” — Paige Adams-Geller, Founder and Creative Director

“I love our new Mayslie Joggers. They are feminine, cool and sexy. You can wear them dressed up or down. I feel like I’m wearing sweat pants but feel and look put together.” — Paige Adams-Geller


"Our head of women’s design, Shayla, wanted the entire spring collection to feel nostalgic and timeless but for every piece to feel edgy and new, which is exactly how this perfect denim style was born. It’s our classic Vintage Straight silhouette updated in a wearable two-tone wash. So many of the color-block denim styles out there are too high contrast for normal wear. This style is the perfect balance to update any spring look.” — Jessica Debreceni, Director of Public Relations, BLDWN

Jeu Illimité

“Denim was the missing piece to the Jeu Illimité puzzle. It’s something I wear a few times a week and hadn’t tried making yet.” — Jessie Andrews, Founder
