ZARA:I Predict These 5 New Trends Won’t Last Long, And These 7 Have Staying Power

The fashion trend cycle can be fickle. One month, a certain silhouette feels relevant and the next it’s become saturated. And though I’m a firm believer that you should wear whatever you please at all times, I’m also a firm believer in falling in love with a new trend or two along the way. The last few months have procured a handful of fresh trends that while shiny and new, also have a lot of staying power thanks to their versatility. Reworked gold hoop earrings, wide-leg jeans, and a handful of other pieces ahead are worth adding to your shopping list. And for the sake of cleaning out your closet, I also rounded up five trends that may be worth taking to your local Goodwill (provided they aren’t serving you anymore).
Below, five trends I predict won’t last long and seven that I suspect have some real staying power. Discover the trends, shop the picks, you know the drill.
Won’t Last Long: Fancy Flip Flops
Flip flops have received the high-end stamp of approval from brands near and far and while they’ll likely work for this summer, something tells us the idea of a pair of flip flops at a designer price point won’t be in favor for long.
Staying Power: Wide-Leg Jeans
Step aside, skinny jeans it’s time to let a more comfortable denim silhouette take the lead. Wide legs have entered the mainstream and in rises and washes that feel especially flattering and easy to wear.
Won’t Last Long: Pants Tucked Into Boots
If you’ve paid attention to street style in the last six months then you’re already well acquainted with the pants-tucked-into-boots trend. While this look is quite chic, it’s probably so much of a statement that it won’t stick around forever.
Staying Power: Vests
Vests have ebbed and flowed in the trend circuit for centuries plus designers have served up chic iterations in the last couple of seasons that make this layering piece well worth the investment.
Won’t Last Long: Bermuda Shorts
As much as we adore a leather Bermuda short right now, the silhouette is admittedly a tough sell to those who are used to their classic blue jeans and trousers.
Staying Power: Leather Blazers
There’s something so enduringly stylish about a leather blazer. Thankfully, there are plenty of elevated vegan options on the market these days and the piece can transition between seasons seamlessly.
Won’t Last Long: Hair Barettes
Multicolor, oft-bedazzled hair barrettes had their moment in the spotlight but it seems these whimsical accessories are losing steam.
Staying Power: Chunky Gold Hoops
Gold Hoop Earrings
It’s unsurprising that the chunky gold hoop trend has staying power; the jewelry staple goes with everything and instantly brightens up your face.
Won’t Last Long: Padded Headbands
Another hair accessory that may not weather the storm is the padded headband. Though great for a statement party look, it doesn’t feel quite as versatile as its non-cushioned cousin (the regular headband).
Staying Power: Ruching
Ruched details add an artisanal element to whatever piece you find it on—purses, pumps, dresses, and so on. It’s a classic design element that’ll never go out of style.
Staying Power: Quilted Accessories
Similar to ruching, quilted design details give accessories a handmade vibe that always looks sleek. Wear now, wear often.
Staying Power: Croc-Effect
A croc-effect texture always looks more expensive than it is, which is cause enough to add to your wardrobe for many years to come.

ZARA: This Once Passé Trend Is Now a Fashion-Person Staple

There was once a time when off-the-shoulder and one-shoulder tops reigned supreme in the shirting realm. Then, like many items as they travel throughout the trend cycle, they sort of fizzled out in recent seasons in favor of trendy mock-neck styles and the sort. But asymmetrical tops, in particular, are pushing their way towards the sartorial forefront again, and the chicest fashion girls are taking note. There’s nothing passé about this neckline right now.
Yep, when I scrolled through my Saved photos on IG to get some cool outfit ideas, I was delighted to uncover that quite a hefty chunk featured one-shoulder tops styled in a plethora of modern ways. I’m talking neutral bodysuits teamed with wide-leg trousers and cardigans, statement tops with jeans and bold accessories, and everything in-between.
To showcase this newer fashion-person staple even more, I rounded up some of the said ensembles I’m into featuring the asymmetric shirt front and center. And naturally, I also shopped out each inspired look as well if you’re looking to jump back on this trend wagon again.
Team a white bodysuit with trousers and a coordinating cardigan for a trendy vibe. Gold jewelry compliments the look just flawlessly.
A cropped asymmetric top is particularly cool with of-the-moment utility pants.
Elevate a one-shoulder top even more with a slouchy blazer and cool pleated pants.
An outfit featuring a black top paired with balloon-type jeans and strappy sandals is simple yet statement-making.
While the neutral tops are definitely reigning supreme, printed iterations are also having a moment worn with jeans.
Keep it chic and easy with a black asymmetric top, skinny jeans, and loafers.

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 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.

TOPSHOP:5 Ways To Style Oversized Shirts For Every Occasion

The shirt has always been a classic wardrobe staple, but this season it’s getting a big update with new colours, fresh fabrications and oversized silhouettes. Scared you’ll look like you’ve been draped in a bedsheet or don’t manage to pull off the ‘borrowed my boyfriend’s shirt’ aesthetic? The styling is pretty crucial to getting the look right. To help you nail it with ease, we’ve put together outfits for five different occasions to get you started…

  1. The 9-5
    Updating your workwear wardrobe can be as simple as opting for an oversized fit when it comes to the staple button up. We’ve gone for a classic blue-stripe and black trouser combo here but jazzed it up with some bright blue boots for a bit of 2020 flare. Throw on your trench and a tote and you’re guaranteed to be the best-dressed commuter on the tube.
  2. The 5-9
    Don’t be tempted to ditch your white shirt completely when the clock strikes 5pm. Instead, swap your workwear bottoms with a mini snakeskin skirt and grab your dancing shoes for a super easy transition from desk to dancefloor. Add a mini nylon bag and some gunmetal earrings and you’re all set!
  3. Brunching
    A shirt doesn’t always need to mean cotton: in fact, this season’s favourite fabrications are on the sheerer side. If you’re heading to brunch, pair your favourite jeans of the moment with some classic mules and have some fun with a pearl bag and funky earrings to complete the look.
  4. Out-out
    When heading on a big night out, an oversized shirt might not be your go-to look. However, draping an organza shirt over a cool bodysuit and wearing it with a mini skirt could make it feel more exciting. Finish the styling with some animal print stilettos and a little black bag to achieve the ultimate out-out outfit.
  5. Gigs and things
    Don’t want to wear a jacket but it’s still a bit chilly outside? Choose a faux leather oversized shirt when heading to a gig to keep warm in the queue but don’t overheat in the venue. Utility trousers and chunky boots are the model off-duty staples right now, so we would style the outfit with them and then add a fun bag for a true cool-girl vibe.

We thought it was about time we showed you off so here’s a roundup of our favourites. Keep scrolling and see if you can spot yourself…

  1. Worn by @chloehayward_
    We’ve been loving throwing it back to the ’70s and ’90s with our denim at the moment and it seems @chloehayward_ feels the same. Our Mom jeans are a classic that we can never see going out of style especially when paired with a bunch of other vintage-style pieces.
  2. Worn by @alexandradankox
    Our favourite trending pair right now have to be our split hem parallel jeans. Here’s @alexandradankox giving us a lesson in how to take them from day to night in a white tee and our best-selling mules.
  3. Worn by @neelamkg
    Double denim is always a good idea. Rock yours like @neelamkg in a matching washed black crop jacket and jeans combo for that ‘I’m with the band’ vibe. We’re obsessed.
  4. Worn by @rollinfunky
    Trending jeans come and go but a ripped skinny is forever. We’re loving how @rollinfunky has styled this light wash pair, giving us a much-needed taste of summer in these bleak February days.
  5. Worn by @allchloerose
    Step aside blue jeans: the new kids on the block this autumn winter are in fact brown, beige and ecru. Keep within the neutral colour family when styling yours and look like you’ve just stepped off the front row of fashion week.
  6. Worn by @modestmira
    When doubling up on your denim don’t hesitate to mix and match your washes. @modestmira proves patchwork jackets with a mid wash jean makes for the perfect 2020 take on the Canadian tuxedo.

TOPSHOP:The Fabric Of You: Everything You Need To Know About Topshop’s Jeans Campaign 2020

As you’ve probably seen, we just launched our brand-new jeans campaign for 2020: The Fabric of You. But what is it all about? From the idea we’re championing this season to the trending fits of the moment and the cast of the campaign, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know here…

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 connection we have to our jeans goes beyond the connection we have with any other piece of clothing, and that’s exactly what we wanted to celebrate with this new Topshop Topman campaign.

The new fits to discover this season
You already know our iconic Jamies and Jonis, but have you met our latest arrivals? This season, we’re introducing two new pairs to our signature line-up that you just need to know about…

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…
Find your perfect fit
Alongside our campaign, we also launched the latest instalment of the Topshop Jeans Fit Guide. Whether you’re after a classic skinny, a straight leg or a retro style – you’ll be able to find all the details you need to pick your perfect pair in there.

Find your fit…

How to take care of your new jeans
Now that you’ve found a great pair of new jeans, you’ll need to know how to take care of them properly. Good thing we just answered all your most pressing questions when it comes to denim, from getting tricky stains out of them to making them feel just as unique as you are.

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.
Style Tip: Tucking a cardigan into full-length jeans like Hailey Bieber did feels so right now.
You’ll look impossibly cool stepping out in these very current full-length jeans.
Style Tip: Embrace the modern yet classic vibe with denim on denim and a white cropped tee.
These jeans would look A+ with flat boots or sandals to show off the slight bunch detail at the hem.
Style Tip: A pair of pointed stilettos feel unexpected with light-wash jeans, a graphic tee, and a moto jacket.
Tuck a white tee into these ’90s-esque straight-leg jeans for a chill yet forward vibe.
Style Tip: Chunky black boots bring a cool spin to Katie Holmes’s denim-and-overcoat outfit here.
You may just live in these modern light-wash jeans all year long—and that’s okay.
Style Tip: Bring instant polish to light-wash jeans with an elegant blazer and sleek turtleneck.
Try these jeans with pointed heels and a pattered blouse for a night out.
Style Tip: Try strappy sandals with full-length jeans mixed with a cropped jacket and a blouse come spring.
This is the brand fashion girls everywhere can’t seem to get enough of.
Style Tip: While this denim look would work for your off-duty life, it could also fit into your casual 9-to-5 life with the sophisticated jacket and white booties.

ZARA:This Chic New Denim Trend Is a Stark Contrast to Skinny Jeans

Before we dive into this denim story, let’s remember that skinny jeans are in no way “out.” Sure, they’re often considered polarizing in nature, but the classic nature of the silhouette means skinnies are more or less a wardrobe staple at this point. That said, there is a variety of fresh denim cuts out there that are giving skinny jeans a run for their money. I recently covered the next wave of non–skinny jeans, but there’s another trend that fashion people are gravitating towards at the moment. Yep, I’m talking about those light-wash, wide-leg styles.
Statement-making in design, this bold denim pick may not be for the faint of heart, but wide-leg jeans could be worth testing out, as they’re inherently cool and can bring that modern yet laid-back vibe to a casual look. In fact, celebrities like Selena Gomez and Dua Lipa have been spotted recently in the silhouette to complete their trendy fits.
Interested in dipping a tone into the wide-leg jean pond? Keep scrolling for a bit of celeb visual and shopping inspiration that may just convince you to try this forward denim trend this season (you know, if you haven’t already of course).
On Selena Gomez: Naked Cashmere sweater; Levi’s jeans; By Far Bag ($688); Roxanne Assoulin Earrings ($120); Yuul Yie boots
While just about any denim style would work with this simple fit, the wide-leg, slightly distressed jeans bring a modern spin to the look.
On Dua Lipa: Prada shoes
It’s no secret that the ’90s are back with fervor. This look leans into that vibe just flawlessly with the baggy jeans, printed tee, long trench, and chunky shoes.
On Hailey Bieber: Arje jacket; Bottega Veneta bag; Chloe Gosselin heels
These light-wash jeans are slightly slimmer than some of the others here, but they still embody the trend as they’re much looser than traditional skinnies. These feel particularly forward with the fuzzy coat.
On Alessandra Ambrosio: One Teaspoon Wide-Leg Jeans ($149); Loewe Gate Bag ($2200)
Need a casual and effortless fit? Consider this ensemble with the long-sleeve white tee, belted jeans, and brown ankle boots.
On Katie Holmes: Kassl Editions coat
Go for the classic look with baggier jeans, a cozy knit, longline coat, and standard black booties.
