Jeans are widely accepted as a wardrobe staple; something which transcends trends and seasons. Nonetheless, each year, certain cuts, washes and waist heights emerge as frontrunners. Baggy silhouettes and cargo styles dominated this year—but what’s in store for 2024?
We’ve turned to a handful of well-dressed celebrities for guidance. These A-listers have their fingers on the fashion pulse, and we know that if they’re spotted wearing a look, it’s probably worth paying attention to. Expect exaggerated flares from J.Lo, a fresh take on double denim from Tracee Ellis Ross and a noughties throwback from Anne Hathaway, as well as some tamer trends to suit minimalists (thanks, Gigi). Jeans come in all shapes and sizes but one thing is for sure: they’re not going anywhere anytime soon.
Whether you’re keen to try a new cut come January or are simply curious about the future of denim, scroll on to see celebrities’ favourite jeans trends for 2024.
Style Notes: A cosy fairisle knit plus a pair of loose-fitting jeans is a comfy combination we can get behind. J.Lo’s belted cardigan cleverly gives shape to what would otherwise be quite a slouchy look.
Trust us, H&M jeans are far higher quality than you’d expect for the price.
Available in seven different washes.
Just add a grey jumper and chunky loafers for a simple winter look.
Raey does denim so well.
Style Notes: Sophie Turner provides a lesson in styling denim tonally. The dreamy blue palette aside, this ensemble has been carefully considered: the slim flare silhouette mirrors the hourglass shape of her blazer, and the pointed-toe heels continue the elongating effect.
I love the hem on this pair, perfect for styling with boots.
This elevated pair will work for evening outings, too.
When in doubt, turn to Levi’s for your jeans needs.
Style Notes: Indigo, grey and black jeans are becoming steadily more popular. Perhaps it’s the dressy feel they lend to a look, or the fact that they complement both neutral and bright shades.
This shape is so versatile.
Crafted from stretchy denim, this culotte design is made with comfort in mind.
The waistband detailing is so unique.
That’s right, bootcut jeans are back.
Style Notes: An easy way to add some interest to your outfit? Choose jeans with a turn-up hem—and for bonus points, style them with a matching denim trench coat, like Tracee Ellis Ross.
These look much more expensive than they are.
Agolde always gets it right.
Use this slightly cropped pair to show off your footwear.
A failsafe everyday wash.
Style Notes: In a throwback to the noughties, celebrities are embracing stone- and acid-washed jeans. The worn-in look is easily incorporated into casual outfits, but we’ve also seen it elevated with a blazer.
Make 2024 the year you brave low-slung jeans.
So chic (and so affordable!).
This whole look is on-point.
The subtle stonewash means these are still super wearable.
