We all own a favorite pair of jeans, whether it’s those go-to skinny pair that fit like a dream, or faded button fly boot cuts we just can’t part with. But what exactly is in right now? And where are the trends heading next? Straight, Skinny, Flare, Bootcut, Ripped - even Mom Jeans?
The quick answer is…pretty much all our favorite styles are still fashionable (what a relief!) with a few subtle changes here and there, like front seams, high waists, and vintage silhouettes and washes. Ripped are here to stay as are distressed, and frayed hems are ultra cool.
At Glam Soldier, a vintage and Boho boutique in Downtown Apex, North Carolina, we stock new styles, old favorites and the tried and true. We love everything from flared to ripped and relaxed.
Let’s Go Jeans Shopping!
Boot-cut is still cool! – at one point we were getting worried that boot-cut was being pushed out by the skinny jean. But fear not, the old favorite is still hot. Boot cuts look great paired with pointy-heeled boots that peep out the front of the jean and they suit pretty much any body type.
This trend appeared a few years ago and has really taken hold in 2021, with all kinds of cute styles available. Frayed hems are the epitome of boho chic – a must-have for every Glam Soldier!
Ripped and Distressed
Who knew ripped and distressed had such staying power? This was not a fly by night trend, it’s here to stay and there’s so much variety it’s hard to choose! And don't for one moment think ripped is a newish style - British 'model' Samantha Fox was rocking ripped back in the 80's.
Long or short, wide leg jeans are not only stylish they’re also super comfy, and with the added high-waist, what’s not to love.
We all love ’em and live in ’em, and the good news is they’re here to stay despite what Gen Z said about them being out of fashion. At Glam Soldier, we set our own trends baby. High-waisted skinny jeans look good paired with a jacket, t-shirts, a plain white shirt, or a flowy blouse. Try pairing with this gorgeous blazer (pictured).
Yes 'mom' jeans are back in fashion - high-waisted and straight legged. The new 'mom jeans' styles have the worn-in, grungy look that's trending right now. Mom Jeans got a bad rap in the media as does everything comfortable. But it was completely unwarranted (and a bit biased) as every mom knows that comfy is king. Like Alisha, our Glam Soldier Captain says: "if you ain't comfy, you ain't sexy."
Flared and Frayed
Girlfriend and Boyfriend
Super comfy and relaxed, these styles suit all body types and tastes, and are a smart addition to your wardrobe. Check out this gorgeous pair of mid-rise, distressed girlfriend fit jeans with button fly.
The long and short of it!
Long jeans are a popular choice and suit just about anybody. They look great with heels and accentuate a lean, long look. And on the flip side, cropped is also in (you just can’t go wrong with jeans styles right now!)
