In 2020, due to orders at home, many of us were able to take off our office clothes and get involved in loungewear, sports and pajamas. Even though it’s been a comfortable year (in terms of clothes) we wanted to dress up a bit, and what better way to do that than with a good pair of jeans? So far, 2021 has brought us great jeans that are not only stylish but also comfortable.
One trend that we’ll see a lot more of is biodegradable denim. As more consumers want to care for our planet, retailers are creating collections of biodegradable stretch denim made from plant-based materials that can decompose and have a minimal impact on the environment. We first saw this at the Stella McCartney Fall / Winter 2020 show, and we expect more brands to adopt the new technology.
We also see nostalgia continue to play a huge role in 2021 as the straight leg is upgraded a bit to a ’90s bootcut – think Rachel Green’s denim Friends – and a 70s flare with an 80s pleated high waist.
