Denim season is officially upon us and what better way to get psyched up for winter than by taking a look at the new trends set to dominate the season ahead? Answer: none.
Whilst jeans aren’t necessarily a one-size-fits-all wardrobe basic, particularly when there are so many different fits to choose from, we’re offering a little something for everyone, no matter what your vibe is.
Here, we join forces with The Denim Fitters at Universal Store to bring you the top denim styles to have on your radar for 2019.

4. Flared legs
Embrace those vintage vibes like your ‘rents circa 1978 with the resurgence of wide-leg, borderline bell-bottom, flared denim. In addition to giving your outfit a schmick edge, you’ll also dig the added comfort of a looser fit.

5. Slim fit
For folks who might not be into the super skinny or wider leg styles, the super slim cut is a happy middle ground. For added swag factor, keep it casual by rolling the cuffs and opting for a slightly lower waistband.
