In the New Year, we'll definitely be donating a few outdated trends, but you can bet that when it comes to our favorite wardrobe classics, we won't be letting them go anywhere. As the cornerstone of our closets, our jeans will still be getting lots of airtime in 2020, and today we're ensuring that our denim outfits feel as fresh as possible moving into the year ahead.
We've identified six styling tricks that will breath new life into our beloved jeans and inspire us to keep wearing our go-to pairs in new ways. For example, straight-leg jeans are one of our go-to 'fits, so we'll be trying out the celebrity-inspired boot tuck trick to keep them looking brand-new. In fact, celebs like Hailey Bieber, Selena Gomez, Priyanka Chopra, and others offer a wealth of genius denim outfit ideas.
If you want to find fresh ways to style your jeans in 2020, look no further. Keep reading to see our favorite outfit ideas and shop pieces to re-create them.
Tuck Straight-Leg Jeans Into Knee-High Boots
Otherwise known as the boot-tuck trick, stuffing straight and baggy denim into knee boots is a look we're about to see a lot more of in 2020. At first glance, the bunched-up jeans look like they could be a mistake, but we promise it's totally a vibe—and Bella Hadid and tons of fashion insiders seem to agree.
Turn Up the Volume
This year, jeans became looser and looser, and that shows no signs of slowing down in 2020. To achieve the most forward look, we suggest cranking up the volume on your denim—the roomier, the better.
Go For the Ecru Wash
Tired of your standard blue jeans? Try out ecru washes instead. Look for off-white shades of ivory and cream that look especially stylish when worn with other neutral tones.

It's basic, but it's insanely chic. Take a cue from EmRata and throw on a structured blazer to literally any jeans outfit to give it a polished finish.

Go For Square-Toe Shoes
They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but we disagree. Black skinny jeans (aka the "old dog") have been in our closets for forever, but when styled with of-the-moment square-toe boots à la Priyanka Chopra, they suddenly take on a brand-new feel.
Add a Printed Turtleneck
Jeans and a plain tee is great and all, but opting for a printed turtleneck is just as easy (and comfortable). Just look at Selena Gomez's casual ensemble, made much more interesting by her snakeskin-printed top.
