The baggy slouch, for example, comes in several different styles this year. You can invest in a pair with rips throughout or a swingy leg that offers more movement when you walk. While the acid-wash finish is decidedly ’80s-inspired, the bleached-out look actually goes as far back as the ’60s. Either way, this style will help you add some edge to your wardrobe.
If you like denim styles that command attention, consider the deconstructed trend. With a raw-edge finish, this look is not only stylish, but it’s also a nod to the handmade, repurposed approach of eco-friendly brands; think Sami Miró Vintage with its iconic Porterhouse style or E.L.V. Denim, a line that’s fully produced from postconsumer waste. Of course, for this look, you can always take matters into your own hands by DIYing your old jeans with a scissor or razor.
Two more denim trends that will be everywhere in 2022? Slits and cargo pants. Side slits often feature zippers and are sometimes placed at the front of the pants for a bold look. As for cargo pants, the classic ’90s style is getting an updated look this season with oversize pockets or contrast stitching.
