Here are the top 10 denim fashion trends you should consider wearing in 2023:

Denim clothing has been popular for decades due to its versatility and durability. In 2023, experts predict that oversized and slouchy jeans, denim jackets, and even denim accessories will be trendy. Denim’s classic appeal allows it to be dressed up or down, making it a practical choice for everyday wear. As the editor-in-chief at LuisaViaRoma, Kate Davidson Hudson, says, “few things are more perennially classic than denim.”

In 2023, experts predict that different types of denim clothing, such as bulky jeans, denim skirts, jackets, and accessories, will be popular. Denim is a classic and timeless fabric that can be dressed up or down, making it a great investment. In the new year, denim trends from the ’90s and aughts, such as denim corsets, miniskirts, and cargo pants, will make a comeback. Pairing ultra-wide denim pieces with dainty and feminine tops will also be trendy for both day and night looks. Thrift stores may be a good place to find these fashionable denim items.

Wearing an outfit made entirely of denim, with the top and bottom both being made of denim fabric.

The denim-on-denim trend made a big splash in the early 2000s when celebrities like Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake wore matching denim outfits to the 2001 American Music Awards. Now, this trend is making a comeback in 2023, so it’s the perfect time to rock your favorite denim pieces all at once. According to Tiffany Hsu, the vice president of fashion buying at Mytheresa, “I love a double denim look and don’t think people should be intimidated to try it.” Don’t be afraid to mix and match different shades and styles of denim to create your own unique look.

However, there are some rules you should follow while rocking this trend. Per Christina and Teresa Jaide, co-founders of JLUXLABEL, you should “pick your desired shade of denim and keep the wash similar throughout” , Lisa Baranello from the brand Miss Sixty couldn’t agree more. “When styling double denim, match the denim color wash of each piece to achieve a synchronized look’,” she tells Woman & Home. 

Wearing denim on denim is definitely a “trust the process” kind of outfit, as it might look a bit off until you add the finishing touches.”Head-to-toe denim is not one for the faint-hearted, but a subtle way to embrace the trend is to team high-waisted, wide-leg jeans with a cropped denim jacket and a plain white tee,”

Baggy and wide jeans

These easy-to-wear styles dominate denim trends and can make any outfit effortless,” Joyce Lee, SVP of design at Madewell, tells Women’s Wear daily.Wide jeans were spotted all over the runways in 2022, too. “The Valentino runway really led the way for the wide-leg, pale-wash denim trend, and we loved the styling with strong color-pop ready-to-wear,” the head of womenswear at MATCHESFASHION, Liane Wiggins, tells Vogue. “It felt like such a modern look.

“The barrel leg is a hybrid of the mom jean and straight leg jeans and are the best jeans for curvy women as it’s wider at the thighs and tapers in at the ankle,” denim stylist Sam Remer tells Woman & Home.”you can expect to see a lot of brands adding to their wide-leg offering in a variety of lengths and styles”

Denim maxi skirts

Denim maxi skirts were frequently spotted on New York Fashion Week’s runways this fall, and they were mainly styled with cropped knits or matching denim jackets. According to Fashion United, the most common denim maxi skirt cuts that were seen on runways were straight or trapeze. What’s more, the searches for denim skirts went up by 52% on ShopStyle.

“The long denim skirt is a brilliant season-less wardrobe staple; just change up your footwear for the occasion,” stylist Sam Remer reveals to Woman & Home. Models like Gigi and Bella Hadid have been rocking denim maxi skirts for a while now, and this spring, we expect to see a lot more people wearing them.

Because denim skirts are stylish, durable, and very comfy, but most importantly, they perfectly fit the nostalgic Y2K fashion, which is currently having a huge comeback, especially with Gen Zers. While you can always shop for these at trendy stores, hitting up a thrift shop or even your older sister/mom’s closet is usually the more affordable way to go. Not to mention that you will end up having an original vintage denim maxi skirt.

Denim bags

In 2023, they are expected to blow up even more. The fashion company THE ICONIC admits that eye-catching bags are going to be big this upcoming year. “Textured and quirky bags will also be making an impact. It’s all about a bag being on and off the runway… Unconventional materials and textures will also be hot property, such as the denim bag and baguette style,” she tells Marie Claire. In fact, high-end designers like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Fendi, and Versace have all released denim bags in 2022, and people will continue to stunt them into 2023 and beyond.

plenty of shapes are available in denim versions. Those who love sustainable fashion will be particularly thrilled about this trend, as many denim jeans and jackets are being upcycled into denim bags and sold on Etsy. If you’re wondering what you can wear a denim bag with, there are no rules. Rock it with a full denim-on-denim look, or make it the one piece of denim you’ll wear for the day. Either way, you’ll be sure to garner attention. As far as the style of the bag goes, more than one shape will be trendy.

Puddle jeans

“They are easily paired back with a tank and slide or sneaker for day-to-day, or for a more elevated and refined look, throw on an unbuttoned shirt and pointed toe flat or heel.” As far as the length goes, make sure the amount of “puddle” is something you’re comfortable with. If you have too much, you may find yourself tripping over your own garment.

If it’s not enough, you won’t feel confident, which is the last thing anyone deserves when rocking their favorite piece of denim clothing. While puddle pants come in all sorts of materials, puddle jeans are expected to be big in 2023. Per Would You Wear, puddle jeans have been somewhat controversial, as many people are not too fond of the trend (probably because of the high chance of tripping in them). However, in 2022 celebs such as Bella Hadid and Dua Lipa have been spotted rocking jeans whose hemlines drag along the ground,

So it’s only a matter of time before this trend becomes just as popular as wide jeans. Those who were hoping that cropped jeans would have a comeback in 2023 will have to wait a bit longer, as it seems the trend has gone in the opposite direction.

Denim boots (or faux denim boots)

Upcycling denim jeans and using them as a leg warmer over your boots has become a massive trend . Per the New York Post, Swedish influencer posted the original video in which she copied a look that supermodel .All she did was measure an old pair of jeans against her knee-high boots, cut the appropriate length of legs off, and then layered them over her boots (making sure to tuck the top into the boots). While this certainly isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, DIY-ing a pair of denim leg warmers that will turn your boots into denim boots is undoubtedly more affordable than going out and buying a new pair.

It is becoming more and more popularized thanks to celebrities,who are often spotted rocking the so-called joots (jean boots).

Two-toned denim

Zee Fields, tells Real Simple that two-toned and color-blocked jeans will be on the rise in the upcoming year.

In 2020, two-toned jeans were still more on the tighter or straight side but this time around, expect two-toned jeans to be baggy, wide, and flare. Per Style Caster, the trend is a great way to contour your legs, as two-toned jeans make your legs appear longer (regardless of what shape you opt for). As far as the rest of the clothing goes, you can easily pick it to dress two-toned jeans up or down. Throw on a vintage band tee and some sneakers for running errands, or pair it with a white button-up and some strappy heels for a night out! 

Oversized denim jackets

“And it’s no wonder they’re in such high demand, as they’re extremely versatile.” While most of us think of grunge and punk fashion when someone mentions this trend, oversized denim jackets actually have more to offer than one thinks. “There are various versions of this style from big and boxy to a vintage trucker style or more of a boyfriend look,” Alissa Friedman, senior public relations and marketing manager tells Harper’s Bazaar. “So think about your personal style and what would best complement your day-to-day looks.”

You’re looking for a more structured or softer denim jacket, hit up the thrift stores, as those are your best source for oversized, vintage finds. A pro tip is to never neglect the men’s section, as that is usually where the true gems are found. “For a softer look, seek out a jacket that has some drape to it — these are most often the jackets constructed from lighter weight materials that have some flow and movement to them,” he says. “For something that looks a bit more authentic and has some structure to it, like you pulled it from the rack of a vintage store, seek out something crafted from a heavier, more rigid type of denim.” 

Off-white and white denim

Denim will always be fashionable, but denim in colors other than its usual blue shades tends to go in and out of style. For 2023, experts predict that white, off-white, and beige denim will be trendy, especially in the springtime. “There’s something ultra-chic about white denim it’s a great alternative on the days you need a refresh, and perfect for any minimalist that prefers their denim a little more pared back.

. “The thicker the denim, the more you achieve that cool utility look, which I think is the stand-out angle of white denim. An oversized, high-rise, relaxed, or wide leg is definitely the go-to for me.” However, when thinking about white and off-white denim, don’t limit yourself to pants — also consider giving jackets, button-ups, skirts, and even summery tops a chance.

“It is so hard to find the perfect pair of white jeans because they naturally show too much if they don’t fit right or if the fabric is off,” Co-Founder and Creative Director of Still Here Sonia tells The Zoe Report. According to her, you should always look for rigid denim if you’re looking at lighter colors. 

Cargo denim pants

“Trends move in cycles, of course, and we’re currently in a pant cycle at the moment, meaning that most innovation is happening in bottoms rather than tops,” trend forecaster Kendall Becker tells The Zoe Report. “The few years furthered it was more street-style-centric and done mostly for fun rather than practicality, the craving for comfort has brought an actual need for the laidback look. And with a fashion spin from our favorite designers, cargo pants and jeans can be undoubtedly chic, you should know that it’s a style that inherently evokes utilitarianism. It’s the great outdoors mixed with interior design and functionality, and it’s a fun one to explore.

While cargo pants are a huge change compared to the skinny jeans we all wore just a few years ago — it isn’t too difficult (or very different) to style them. Similar to wide and baggy jeans, cargo denim pants can also be worn with cropped tops, button-ups, or even dainty bralettes. One thing we do recommend is to pick a simpler top as cargo pants tend to be rather busy on their own, thanks to their many pockets.
