5 Denim Trends the Fashion Crowd Will Wear This Winter (and Beyond)

There are classic denim silhouettes that will continue to be mainstays for years to come. Yes, we're looking at you, high-rise, straight-leg jeans. But with every new season, a fresh batch of silhouettes enters the spotlight. And today, we're going to highlight the winter denim trends that are bound to be most popular.

While the fashion set—including our own editors—will continue to wear some of the trending fall cuts (ahem, bootcut jeans), there are a few other cuts that will be front-runners. In fact, there's a strong chance some or all of the picks coming your way could become staple styles for seasons to come.

Keep scrolling to check out the top jeans trends of the moment (which include a variety of silhouettes), complete with visual and shopping inspiration.

Washed-Out Black Jeans

Black jeans are undoubtedly timeless, but it's those more faded and washed-out styles that the fashion crowd will embrace to bring a cool spin to a vibe.

Indigo/Dark Jeans

The top winter trends of 2021



Dark and indigo washes are staples among the fashion crowd. The beauty of this silhouette is that there's a polished feel to it. You can easily dress up that ideal pair.

Super-Wide-Leg Jeans

Wide-leg jeans—particularly those exaggerated styles—aren't going anywhere this season. We love the idea of teaming oversize separates with baggy jeans for a very-right-now look.

Raw-Hem Jeans

The top winter trends of 2021



Distressed jeans are still popular (you'll see styles below), and those cleaner silhouettes with the raw hem will enter the spotlight in an even greater way for winter.

Low-Rise Jeans

We highlighted this trending style for fall, and we had to include it again. Yep, this Y2K silhouette is here to stay for the season.
