5 new denim trends for 2022

Call it the 2020 effect, but the Spring/Summer 2022 fashion shows were loaded with denim, from couture-worthy outfits to laid-back looks. Last year in particular, we’ve seen a big shift from the dominating skinny jeans of yesteryear to styles with wide legs, and even low rises. It can be daunting to experiment with something as dependable as denim, but give it a try and see how you feel. GTCThe fashion team at has highlighted five of our favorite trends to embrace next season. “We’re back,” those jeans seem to say, “and ready for something new.” Are not you?

Low and loose

Recalling that fashion always swings from one end to the other, this laid-back trend is 180° from the high-waisted skinny jeans of the past. However, we have to admit that low rises suit certain shapes better and are just as easy to wear with crop tops and heels as their regular counterparts.

Patchwork

The denim-on-denim patches evoke the traditional Japanese style of patchwork called boro, which was popular in the 19th and 20th centuries. Increasingly, brands are using the sustainable technique to rework old pieces and unsold fabrics into new finds. The best part is that they can be worn as your favorite pair of denim while elevating basic jeans and a t-shirt look.

Over the top jeans to know how to have a good time. Wear them on a night out with friends and they’ll be sure to make a sparkling statement. Don’t worry, these new styles are leagues fancier than you between Bedazzler days.

Justin and Britney have monopolized this look for too long, it’s time to reclaim the old Canadian tuxedo. It’s a great classic look! We particularly like the bespoke versions we’ve seen at Rejina Pyo and YSL.

Dresses + Skirts

This revival of the ’90s trend makes us all feel like a romantic comedy star. We’re looking forward to layering denim dresses over turtlenecks for now and alone in spring.
