The Jeans Everyone Is Wearing in NYC Right Now

The new NYC jeans trends



I have no shortage of denim in my closet. In fact, I tend to wear denim at least three or four times a week and always have a sizable collection of jeans on rotation. While my denim tastes often change over time, lately, I’ve been a diehard fan of straight-leg silhouettes and, more recently, started wearing a leopard-print pair. Leave it to the fashion set, though, to make me ready to shake things up again with some brand-new denim trends.

Over the last few days, I’ve spotted some great new jean trends on the cool fashion girls during New York Fashion Week, straight from the street style scene. As is typical of fashion-pack looks, it should come as no surprise that all of them are cool, fashion-forward, and a bit daring. Ahead, I’m breaking down the coolest new jean trends for fall, spotted on the streets of NYC, and my edit of the best pieces to wear the looks for yourself.
