There really is no better way to elevate your fit than with a fresh pair of trousers. Denim has long been a part of every fashion enthusiasts wardrobe, but how are you supposed to know what jeans to buy in an oversaturated market?

As Gen Z’ers continue to influence style-centric searches, we have seen a massive jump in the quest for low-rise jeans and baggy/flared styles. An increase in searches around eye-catching styles also saw printed and patchwork denim become a focus for fashion-forward teens.

I have curated a list of every type of denim pant you should be rocking in your daily life. So, whether you opt for slim fit slacks or a baggy 90s number, we have something for you.

LEVI’S® VINTAGE CLOTHING 1955 501® JEANS, £220 / US$300
There is only one place to start this list, with the San Francisco based denim masters over at Levi’s®. The vintage-inspired 1955 501® jeans feature a classic 1950s biker style with a fuller, boxier cut throughout the leg. Roll up and style with Birkenstock’s Boston silhouette for a comfy ‘fit ready for any occasion.

JADED LONDON PRINTED FLORAL SKATE JEANS, £70 / US$96
Jaded London has crashed onto the streetwear scene, dropping a bunch of eye-catching printed jeans along the way. The sibling duo behind Jaded London takes inspiration from across the globe, with street style in London and LA influencing its designs. Jaded’s latest offering, a pair of floral printed skate jeans, is complemented best by a box-fresh pair of sneakers. Demanding attention has never been easier.

EVISU SEAGULL PRINT JEAN, £269 / US$369
Japanese denim powerhouse Evisu Genes were the go-to brand for quality jeans back in the early ’00s. Evisu’s raw denim design paired with the iconic seagull print logo brings a sense of nostalgia to many Millenials, with the sky blue hue used guaranteed to turn heads. The jean is cut to Evisu’s #2017 fit, meaning the carrot style allows for more room around the thigh and a tighter fit around the calf. The perfect pair for anybody looking to transition away from skinny jeans.

SUPREME NEW YORK STONEWASHED SLIM JEAN, £168 / US$230
Supreme New York is generally known for its controversial designs and outlandish accessories that drop each season. However, one of Supreme’s most consistent products is the slim jeans that we see released each year. They are made from cotton selvedge denim for durability with a slimmer cut. A Supreme leather logo patch completes these pants’ simple yet effective design. Perfect Summer jeans.  

STÜSSY DENIM DOUBLE KNEE PANT, £130 / US$179
Stüssy has long produced high-quality work pants, with these denim double knee carpenter jeans a must-cop. The baggy 90s look suits this pair down to the ground, with original Stüssy branding featuring on the shank button and back pocket. A tapered hem ensures the Stüssy denim double knee pants look excellent whatever footwear you’re wearing.
