ZARA:5 Straight-Leg-Jean Outfits That Will Convince You to Put Away Your Skinnies

As I’ve highlighted before, I’m a true skinny-jean lover. Sure, the style skews on the polarizing side at times with fresh denim cuts entering the scene every season, but skinnies work best for my style. That said, I’m always open to trying new trends. However, for me personally, the extra-wide jeans fashion people are wearing right now are just a bit out-there. But cool straight-leg jeans? Now there’s a silhouette I’m down to test out.
And honestly, given that it’s more or less the go-to favorite among the style set right now, there’s an endless flow of style inspiration on IG. The silhouette is basically begging for me to give it a whirl. What do you think? Are you a tried-and-true skinny-jean person? Would a bit of forward outfit inspo featuring straight-leg jeans convince you to step out of your comfort zone? Well, let’s see. Ahead, I’m showcasing five of-the-moment denim ‘fits (complete with shopping recommendations) that just might convince me to give up my skinnies (at least for now).
Style Tip: If you’re looking for an easy yet forward outfit combo, don’t underestimate the power of a trendy cropped cardigan with your jeans and flat sandals.
Style Tip: Go for the layered look with an unbuttoned white blouse underneath a slouchy blazer, complete with your straight-leg jeans and square-toe boots.
Style Tip: Toss on a leather jacket—especially a blazer iteration—to bring that modern effortlessness to your simple denim fit.
Style Tip: A reworked trench is so of-the-moment, and it will take straight-leg jeans and a white T-shirt to the next level.
Style Tip: Into the cardigan idea like the above? Consider the matching set look with your darker straight-leg jeans this spring.

ZARA:The Non–Skinny Jean Trend the Chicest People Will Wear in the 2020s

While skinny jeans will never actually be out of style, there are a range of fresh, non-skinny silhouettes that continue to rise in popularity. Yep, we’re talking about styles like flared denim but also a recent favorite amongst the fashion and celeb world: full-length denim. This cut is in a straight fit, typically comes in a lighter wash, and bunches just slightly on top of the shoes.

TOPSHOP:5 Ways To Style Your Jeans Like The Icons Who Wore Them Best

Denim jeans have been around for what feels like forever (since the 1930s to be precise), but they’ve changed a lot since they first surfaced. We saw them with ultra wide-legs until the ’60s, flared in the ’70s, acid-washed in the ’80s, high-waisted in the ’90s, low-waisted in the ’00s, skinny through the 2010s and straightened-out by 2020. Now, we’re lucky enough to have all these different pairs to play with and no matter what shape we go for, they’re guaranteed to be one of our most staple wardrobe pieces. When it comes to styling, the options are endless, but who more fitting to get inspired by than the stylish celebs from the iconic decades in which these jeans originated? Here’s how to get the look…

  1. The Wide Leg Jean – Katharine Hepburn, 1930s
    Women wearing trousers was a major statement back in the mid-1930s so, when Katharine Hepburn wore a pair of wide-leg jeans on set, it was pretty controversial. Word on the street is that after someone confiscated them from her dressing room, she walked around in her pants and refused to put on any more clothes until someone returned her jeans to her. Recreate Hepburn’s relaxed tailored look by styling a silky shirt with a pair of light wide-leg jeans and trainers.
  2. The Flared Jean – Jane Birkin, 1970s
    Actress, singer, model and forever fashion muse: Jane Birkin’s mix of Parisian and London influences always resulted in the most effortlessly-chic outfit ensembles. Alongside Californian star, Farrah Fawcett, she made the relaxed flared jean an absolutely essential wardrobe piece during the ’70s and usually opted for a bohemian approach to styling: think a frilled white blouse with accent accessories in earthy tones.
  3. The Mom Jean – Debbie Harry, 1980s
    As the Maimi-born star of the huge ’80s band Blondie, Debbie Harry was always known for her rock and roll ways and her style suited this vibe to a T. The 505 Levi’s jean, which had a slightly tapered leg and a distressed acid-wash, were her on-stage shape of choice – they are what we now refer to as the classic mom jean. To emulate her rock-chic look, go for double denim with grungy add ons.
  4. The Skinny Jean – Alexa Chung, 2000s
    Jumping forward a few decades – it was into the ’00s and 2010s when the skinny jean became the new must-have, thanks to the rise of indie-pop and OG model off-duty style. It’s easy to achieve that classic Cara Delevingne street style look with an oversized T-shirt and some chunky buckled boots. But if you’re after something a little more ‘mod’, look to our favourite British It-girl Alexa and pair a faded black pair of Jamie jeans with some preppy loafers and a vinyl trench.
  5. The Dad Jean – Kendall Jenner, 2020s
    …And we’ve arrived at the present day! Recently, we’ve seen jean silhouettes straighten out and extend from cropped styles into full-length legs. Both the editor and dad jean fall into this category and are favourites amongst the supermodels of the moment. Take cues from Kendall this season and pair yours with a slick turtleneck, a cropped bomber and a cute ’90s handbag.

ZARA:This Elegant Trend Sort of Died, But It’s Coming Back to Life Next Year

There are certain trends that basically come “in and out” every few seasons. I consider these to be sort of like yo-yo trends—they’ll rise up in a noteworthy way one year only to basically die down the next before they rise back up, and so on. Peplum tops (when fabric gathers at the waist and flares out) are one of said trends.
TBH, you probably have a few peplum shirts in the back of your closet from when the trend dominated a few years ago and everyone (legit, everyone) seemed to wear them thanks to their inherently chic and elegant nature. Well, it may be time to include pretty peplum-detailed pieces in your arsenal of standbys come 2020. That’s right, some of the biggest runway heavy-hitters from Tibi to Alexander McQueen showcased modern interpretations of the trend with ruffle-like accents and cropped shapes throughout their S/S 20 collections.
Below, I rounded up a bit of visual inspiration for the return of the peplum top for you, as showcased on the runway and through street style. I also shopped out a range of the coolest, most fashion-forward peplum tops to buy right now if you’re ready to re-introduce the look into your closet. Welcome back, peplum.
Khaite’s interpretation of the peplum showcases how the trend has evolved in 2020 with the ruffled bottom, ruched bodice, and cap-sleeve detail.
This slightly cropped peplum top in the sweet orange hue at Tibi is especially modern with the monochromatic cargo trousers.
Alexander McQueen’s bold leather peplum jacket-top hybrid is striking with the puff sleeve and strong shoulders.
Never shy of bold colors, MSGM amped up the peplum with an eye-catching color-blocked option with laser-cut details.
This sophisticated peplum outfit at Michael Kors feels classic yet incredibly of-the-moment with the addition of the studded belt.
Style Tip: A white peplum top with sharp sleeves pairs flawlessly with straight-leg jeans for that casual 9-to-5 life or in that 5-to-9 life as well.
Style Tip: A matching set is no-fail (toss both pieces on, and you’re set) and quite forward with unexpected accessories like canvas sneakers and mesh bag.
Style Tip: A peplum top in a neutral hue that has a touch of shine is so modern with light-wash jeans for any holiday party this season.
Style Tip: Make an instant statement in a black peplum top with eye-catching details like the sheer paneling and high neck here. Try it with an equally bold pencil skirt and knee-high boots to take the vibe to the next level.
Style Tip: Add a belt to a white blouse to give it even more dimension teamed with statement pants and black booties.
Style Tip: A peplum blouse with architectural elements (like the balloon sleeves) is impactful on its own, and requires nothing more than a pair of black pants and fun flats.
Style Tip: Similar to the Alexander McQueen look above, the jacket-top peplum hybrids are ramping up to be a must-have for a polished vibe paired with trousers for elegant affairs.

H&M:HOW TO STYLE THE CYCLING SHORTS TREND

Tucking a knitted top into a pair of figure-hugging cycling shorts might sound like a terrible idea in theory, but in practice it’s the perfect way to take spandex pants from sporty to chic. Partnering black cycling shorts with neutral colors like beige, light gray and cream keeps the look minimal and fresh. Complete the outfit with big silver hoops. Biking shorts at the office? Sure! A blue striped shirt dress adds a crisp and more dressed-up feeling to the sporty pants. Try tying the dress in a different way for a more interesting look — you’ll want to show off the shorts in the front and cover them in the back. Pair with a raffia and leather detailed bag to make the look the perfect mix of vacation vibes and city life. Adding volume to either the upper or the bottom part of the body while keeping the other part slim creates interesting — and flattering — proportions. Opt for a puffy blouse with voluminous sleeves to balance the slim-fitting cycling shorts, and don’t be afraid to put on those high heels! A big black hat adds just the right amount of flamboyance to an otherwise toned-down outfit. When paired with the right accessories, cycling shorts can become a chic option for a cocktail party in no time.
