Yes, everyone, just as 2019 has arrived, so have plenty of brand-new denim styles to add to your closet, which means it’s time to shelve some of your outdated jean styles. Looking to the fashion set on Instagram, we’re already seeing a shift in the denim pieces they’re posting on their feeds and, notably, the ones they’re not.
Dated jean styles like cropped flares and denim with extreme rips have been fading away from the fashion space in recent months, and in their place, we expect a new set of fresh jean styles. Wondering which ones are worth investing in now and which ones deserve to be thrown into your Marie Kondo–approved resale pile to tidy up your life? Ahead, see the four jean styles insiders are skipping in 2019 and the ones that will be popular in the next few months.
SKIPPING: EXTREME RIPS
WEARING: LOOSE SILHOUETTES
Plan to see the fashion set wearing loose-fitting denim styles with wide legs and relaxed fits.
SKIPPING: CROPPED FLARES
WEARING: DENIM CYCLING SHORTS
With the rise of bike shorts, we'll also be seeing similar shapes in the world of denim.
SKIPPING: UNEVEN HEMS
WEARING: UTILITY PANTS
One of the biggest trends on the S/S 19 runways? Utility pants. Expect to see plenty of cargo jeans on the street style scene at fashion month.

Tie-dye and all things surfer girl were also in close focus on the runways. This is the perfect way to achieve effortless cool with one fashion item.
