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. You may remember Hailey Bieber’s recent ensemble last month featuring the Khaite full-length jeans.

Sure, this silhouette is a far cry from the cropped skinny and straight jeans that we’ve been wearing over the last few seasons, but this is one denim style that will be that forward spin to any outfit in the 2020s. We bet the chicest people out there will give these jeans a whirl with pointed ankle boots now or low-heel strappy sandals when the temperatures start to warm up. To highlight this must-try denim trend further, we rounded up how fashion people are wearing full-length jeans now and how they turned up on the S/S 20 runways. Keep scrolling for more and to shop a few pairs as well.

TOPSHOP:5 Ways To Style Topshop’s New Bohemian Trend This Spring

Topshop’s new bohemian trend ‘Pretty, Cool’ takes cue from LA’s coolest, who have effortless warm weather dressing down to a tee. The capsule is all about pairing laid-back pieces and simple silhouettes with denim layers and beachy accessories. To help you nail the styling, we’ve put together five outfits that each focus on one key aspect of the trend. Take a look…

  1. The relaxed denim…
    Nothing says laid-back style quite like light-wash denim so, of course, it’s absolutely essential to achieving the effortless LA look. Double up by wearing a pair of straight-leg jeans with a cropped denim jacket. Then, keep the rest simple and sweet with a blush Bardot top and accessories that have a summery feel.
  2. The light layer…
    As the temperatures start to pick up, you’ll no longer have to turn to your heavy winter coats. However, you’ll still be needing something to keep you warm throughout transition season and a light cardigan is the perfect piece. Style a cami or chilled T-shirt with a floaty midi skirt, then layer a fluffy cardigan over the top.
  3. The ditsy mini dress…
    With their pretty prints, sweet ruffles and outfit all-in-one style, floral dresses are a bohemian wardrobe essential for spring. For now, pick a long sleeved number and layer with a cool motif tee that you can tie in a knot at the front. Later on, all you’ll need is a lightweight denim jacket and you’ll be good to go.
  4. The picnic print…
    Gingham is the ultimate summer print that’s both pretty and cool, so it’s a key pattern to incorporate into your new season wardrobe. Channel the ’70s bohemian vibes by styling a gingham blouse with a pair of slightly flared jeans and some sleek mules. To finish, tie the outfit together with a crisp white jacket and some monochrome add ons.
  5. The effortless silhouette…
    Keeping things simple and relaxed is is crucial to nailing this trend so, even when you’re dressing up, go for a slip in a loose-fitting silhouette. Accessorise with delicate gold accents and, if you want to add a pop of colour, pick some pink mules.

ZARA:The Divisive ’90s Denim Trend That’s Everywhere This Spring

In the ’90s, at the height of fashion’s grunge era, ripped jeans rose to popularity, often leading my parents (and probably yours) to ask me, “Why would you pay more for denim that was meant to look old and destroyed?” But that didn’t stop me from buying and wearing them on repeat. In recent years, I have completely avoided any distressed denim styles with holes or frayed hems, favoring more tailored styles instead. I honestly never thought I would go back to ripped denim, but I recently ordered a new pair inspired by what I’ve been seeing on celebrities and the street style scene. That’s right, everyone—’90s-inspired ripped denim is officially back.
Earlier this year, celebrity stylist Allison Bornstein told me that ripped denim would be huge for spring, and she couldn’t be more right. “Ripped jeans are perfect for the spring, and I’m not talking distressed—I mean big ’90s rips,” Bornstrein said. “They add a little casual and unexpected edge to a look and have an inherent sexiness to them.” Spring hasn’t even arrived yet, but I’m already seeing Bornstein’s prediction coming true. Ahead, see how celebs and the style set are wearing ripped denim and shop pieces inspired by their looks.
On Katie Holmes: Khaite Brianne Shirt ($349) and High-Waisted Distressed Jeans ($420); Stuart Weitzman Apogee Booties; Chloé Milo Bag
Katie Holmes has been putting a number of cool trends on the map, including ripped denim. Here, she offsets the ruggedness of her jeans with a romantic puff-sleeve top and sleek ankle boots. The perfect way to pull off the jean style, IMO.
On Gigi Hadid: Re/Done High Rise Loose Jeans ($250); Schutz Analeah Boots ($295); Dmy By Dmy Olsen Sunglasses; Lizzie Fortunato Gala Wristlet
Gigi Hadid is another celeb who is endorsing jeans with big ’90s rips. Paired with a tailored blazer and sleek knee-high boots, her outfit is the perfect example of how to make distressed jeans still look polished.
At New York fashion week, MyTheresa’s Buying Director Tiffany Hsu wore a pair of wide-leg jeans with holes cut into sides. Styled with a leather button-down, puffed-up bomber, and quilted shoes, she nailed the ultimate street style look.
When it comes to ripped jeans, you simply can’t go wrong by pairing them with a blazer. Slip a denim button-down underneath for an unexpected way to style them.

ZARA:My Mom Wore These 9 Trends in the ’80s, and Now I Do Too

My mom and her friend wearing Laura Ashley dresses to a wedding in 1984.
Not too long ago, Urban Outfitters came out with its collaboration with iconic ’80s brand Laura Ashley. I’ll be completely honest, it wasn’t until I showed the pieces to my mom and aunt that I realized just how iconic the brand was—especially to my mom and her stylish group of friends. Immediately my mom showed me the photo above of her and one of her best friends wearing Laura Ashley dresses to a wedding in 1984. How did I respond? By looking up Laura Ashley dresses on Etsy and ordering one for myself, of course.
The F/W 18 runways proved the ’80s are back, and if the return of the decade is anything like the ’90s have been this past year, the resurgence of trends from this time are only just starting to gain steam. While the runways are definitely a place I get forward-thinking inspiration from, I decided when it came to the ’80s fashion trend, I was going to go back to the queen of fashion during her time—my mother. She and my aunt were called “the Vogue sisters” back in high school, so I guess I have to give them a little credit.
My mom and aunt with matching perms and wild jumpsuits.
I asked my mom to list off all the trends from the ’80s that she thought I might still be into today. Some of the styles that made her list quickly got cut from mine including sweatbands, colored plastic beads, and a few others I’d rather not mention. But as for the rest of her selects, I’d say they are pretty spot-on. Ahead, shop nine of the ’80s fashion trends my mom wore back in the day—the ones that are still somehow cool in 2019.
Boxy Blazers
“Shoulder pads and boxy shoulders, in general, were the staple of the ’80s, and I was totally okay with that. The structure they gave a shirt or blazer was the look you had to have. I think they are weirdly flattering, as they make your shoulders wider than your hips, which is never a bad thing. If you threw on a blazer with shoulder pads over a dress or any bottom, you knew you were good to go.”
Tailored Jumpsuits
Here are my mom and my aunt in their jumpsuits and oversize belts.
“Jumpsuits were my favorites in the ’80s. They made getting dressed so easy, and I always felt so fashionable wearing them. I loved how tall they made me look too. The ones with big shoulder pads were even more flattering.”
Color-Coordinating Shoes
“As I started working in the ’80s, wearing suits and pumps was a given. To make the stiff look more fashion-forward, one trend was to match from head to toe, including your shoe color. I must have had low-heel pumps in every color. Neutrals were not a thing. And of course, the pumps matched the hose, which matched the suit and so on.”
Prairie Dresses
Okay, so this isn’t a prairie dress, but it’s a photo that needs to be seen.
“Another trend I really loved. These dresses of the ’80s were what we wore when we dressed up for any special event. They were feminine, pretty, and flattering. They made your waist look small too.”
Statement Hosiery
“The colored and patterned hose really made an outfit looked finished. If you took the time to perfectly match the color of your hose to your outfit or wear hose with tiny polka dots to match the print in your dress, you were happening.”
Scrunchies
“So scrunchies were the other accessory of the ’80s that you could match to your outfit. I had them in every color, because you had to. We needed them to put our big permed hair into a thick ponytail. We would wear them on our wrists too for the impromptu hairstyle change, and we could do that because they, of course, matched our outfit.”
Pleated Denim
“We all wore pleated, high-waisted, acid-washed jeans in the ’80s. This trend still baffles me. It was not flattering, but I guess it proves we were loyal to the trends. The big pockets were a perk though.”
Light-Wash Denim Jackets
“The key to a stylish denim jacket in the ’80s was the wash and the shape. If it wasn’t acid or light wash, with big dolman sleeve and covered your butt, it was not going to impress anyone.”
This is my mom and dad wearing acid-wash denim. Not quite sure I’m ready for this one to come back.
Oversize Readers
“Every item in the ’80s was designed to make a big statement. Therefore, I wore ginormous glasses as well. Everything, including accessories, had to be big or would be drowned by the size of our big permed hair.”

TOPSHOP:5 Ways To Wear Your White Jeans In Winter

At first glance, white jeans might seem like more of a summer staple. However, all our street style and Instagram favourites have been wearing them everywhere recently, proving that they are, in fact, a year-round-piece after all. The trick is in the styling: whilst in warmer months a light floral blouse and sandals might suffice, when it comes to cooler seasons, it’s all about layering and playing with textures. Keep scrolling to discover how – just don’t forget to check the weather forecast before you head out, your winter whites won’t fare too well in rain…

  1. Like an editor…
    If you’ve been keeping up with fashion month so far, you’ll definitely have seen some of the coolest editors out and about in their favourite straight-leg style of white jeans. Their usual aesthetic is defined by elevated basics with statement trend pieces sprinkled on top. So, to emulate the look, pair your jeans with a crisp white T-shirt, a blazer and classic mules. Then, for the trends part, finish with a translucent jelly bag and a reptile-embossed trench.
  2. Like a ’70s icon…
    The ’70s are a huge trend this season and is responsible for ushering flared silhouettes back into our lives. As a nod to the popular free-spirited decade, stick to a sepia-toned colour palette and style your flares with a bohemian blouse in a cute print. Then, for extra warmth on wintery days go for a cropped woollen jacket and Western boots.
    White skinny jeans might not be something you’d normally pick out for the office, but pairing them with an oversized shirt can create a surprisingly smart silhouette. In chillier temperatures, layer a roll neck knit underneath and then complete the outfit with some smart mules, a trench and a colour pop bag.
  3. Like a rock ‘n’ roll chic…
    If your personal style is more on the grungy side, veering from dark-wash denim can feel a little out of your comfort zone. But, don’t despair – you can always tone down the brightness of the white denim by wearing it with a mix of monochrome shades. Top tip: instead of sticking exclusively with black (which can look a bit stark), opt for pieces in a range of tones including charcoal, grey check and silver.
  4. Like a Scandi street style star…
    Minimalist Scandi style is major at the moment and, since neutral is their favourite colour palette, white jeans are undoubtedly one of their go-to wardrobe pieces. To get the look, style some relaxed wide-leg jeans with a lace bralet and a cosy brown knit. Then, keep the rest simple with trainers, a trench and a checked micro-bag for a touch of pattern.

Topshop’s jeans campaign 2020
The Fabric of You encapsulates two things: what it is that makes you you, and how your jeans fit into that. It’s about denim, done your way – whether that’s about what you do wearing your jeans, how you style your jeans or what wearing jeans means to you and your life.

The new fits to discover this season

THE DAD JEANS

The dad is the latest jeans must-have and a new take on the beloved boyfriend jean. It’s made from non-stretch denim and comes with a button fly so has all the signature details of the retro pair you love but feels more modern. Designed to sit as a mid-rise and with a slightly loose leg, the dad jeans look great worn with chunky trainers.

THE RELAXED FLARE

This is the pair everyone will want to get their hands on now. With a high waist giving a more tailored look and a comfortable relaxed fit, the relaxed flare is the easiest new-season denim staple. Style yours with a ruffled top, a faux fur coat and a vintage-inspired belt or dress it down with a Breton top, trainers and a beret for that Parisian chic.

The cast starring in the campaign
Because we believe that the person wearing the jeans makes the jeans, we asked the cast of our denim campaign some questions to get to know them better. From their star sign to the best moment of their life and what makes them laugh, find out what makes them how they are and how that brings their jeans to life in our campaign video…

TOPSHOP:5 Pieces You Need To Nail The Off-Duty Street Style Look

Long gone are the days when off-duty model street style consisted of a pair of skinny jeans, a baggy T-shirt and some chunky boots: all our favourite runway stars are now sporting a whole new uniform of relaxed tailored pieces and elevated basics. It’s the coolest, most put-together yet effortless look around at the moment – worn by the likes of Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid – so it’s definitely one to try at home. Here are the five key pieces you need…

  1. The Slouchy Trouser
    First up, the slouchy trouser: at first glance, a bit more formal than a pair of skinny jeans but they’re actually way more comfortable to wear – the wide tailored cut gives you some extra room to breathe! Tone down the smart-trouser vibes for your day-to-day by matching your pair with a extra casual tank top.
  2. The Tailored Coat
    When the temperatures drop, you’ll usually catch the off-duty models in some sort of extra-large and slouchy longline coat. Sticking to a neutral colour palette of greys, camels and blues will ensure your new investment piece matches all your outfits and if you do feel like mixing things up a bit, go for one in glossy vinyl.
  3. The Oversized Shirt
    Some shirts were made for the office, others were born for a much more exciting and varied existence. The trick is to be inventive – wear yours semi-done up or half-tucked, try layering with a sheer option or don it as a dress when spring comes around!
  4. The Relaxed Blazer
    Whilst, for now, you might need to layer this key piece with an extra knit or coat, a relaxed blazer is the perfect outerwear option for when the temperatures start to pick up. To make it less ‘workwear’ and more ‘modern off-duty’, go for a slightly oversized number and pair with anything from printed trousers or jeans to shorts and dresses.
  5. The Straight-Leg Jean
    Skinny jeans may no longer reign supreme, however denim is still a very important element of the off-duty models’ go-to uniform. Just like all their staple pieces, their fit of choice is simply more relaxed. So, opt for one of our latest dad jeans which all have the perfect straight-leg cut. Stuck on how to style the new shape? Check out our styling guide here.

ZARA:6 New Bikini Trends I Can Only Really Describe as Shocking

At this point in the season, we’ve pretty much been sticking to a uniform that involves bikinis, denim shorts, sandals, and little else. Typically there’s only one objective during these summer weekends, and that’s to get as much sun as possible, wearing one of the barely there bikinis that are designed to maximize sun exposure and minimize tan lines. But if you thought settling for a plain triangle bikini was good enough, you thought wrong. Instead, we’ve noticed a new crop of barely there bikini trends on the rise—and these styles are so minimal they’re shocking.

Like most controversial swimsuit trends, celebrities and fashion girls are leading the pack here. We’ve spotted them in bikinis that are redefining what “barely there” even means and some that are straight-up optical illusions. I may be slightly shook at the thought of donning any of these styles, but I can’t deny how fire following ‘grams are. To see these six new daring bikini trends and how they’re worn, simply keep scrolling.
