Jeans are a wardrobe staple, even after nearly two years of remote working! We all need a reliable, comfortable and, ideally, stylish pair.
In 2022, denim trends range from the more classic straight leg style to the more original and unusual. It’s no surprise that with so few opportunities to go out, we want to have a little fun with fashion!
To allow you to adopt the latest trends without breaking your budget, we’ve unearthed 10 pairs under $100 that will make you trendy in 2022.
Here they are:
1. 1990’S LOW RISE STRAIGHT JEANS
American Eagle | 1990’S Low Rise Straight Jeans, $64.95 (On Sale: $45.46)
This year, much to the dismay of many, the low-rise jean is making a comeback. For them to be stylish, they don’t have to be so low that you wonder how they fit, they do! Just embrace the trend on a classic style, like the straight leg.
2. HIGH-WAISTED TAPERED MOM JEANS
Reitmans | High Rise Tapered Leg Mom Jeans, $64.90
Another classic that does not go out of fashion, the “mom” jean. This cut, which offers a little bit of room at the thigh, is the perfect combination of comfort and style. To adapt it to the trends of 2022, choose to wear in a dark blue colour.
3. SEMI-FLARED LEG JEANS
Laura | LOIS Bootcut Jeans, $98 (On Sale: $59.99)
The “bootcut” cut, very similar to the straight leg, is another top trend for 2022. It’s perfect for wearing with a casual boot, as the name suggests, yet still allows you to wear jeans on more formal occasions!
4. LEVI’S HIGH WAIST SKINNY FLARE JEANS
The Bay | Levi’s Plus High Rise Skinny Cropped Flare Jeans, $89.95 (On Sale: $35.96)
If the straight leg is not your cup of tea, opt for a flared cut below the knee. This slightly retro cut is reminiscent of the 1970s while still being flattering.
5. 1990’S HIGH WAISTED LOOSE FIT JEANS
Gap | High Rise ’90s Loose Jeans in Organic Cotton with Washwell, $84.95.
For a casual look, there’s nothing better than a loose leg. This design looks like it came straight out of your dad’s wardrobe in the 90’s, and it’s just perfect like that!
6. CONTEMPORARY ORGANIC COTTON CASUAL JEANS
Simons | Relaxed Organic Cotton Jeans, $99.
The straight leg, but in a shortened version will please those who prefer to reveal the ankle. This classic but trendy pair in dark blue, is right on track with this year’s trends.
7. WIDE-LEG, HIGH-WAISTED JEANS
Gap | High Rise Wide-Leg Jeans with Washwell, $95 (On Sale: $85)
If you like the full leg trend, this almost palazzo pant style will be perfect for you. Nothing better for a casual look.
8. STRAIGHT CUT JEANS
Frank And Oak | The Cyndi Straight Jean in Dark Blue, $99.50
For a jean that lends itself to all occasions, a dark, fitted style is a timeless go-to.
9. ICONIC BLUE FADED WIDE LEG JEANS
Simons | Faded blue wide-leg jean, $79.
Halfway between wide-leg and straight-leg, this style can be worn with a sneaker for a casual look, or with a heeled boot for a more chic outing.
10. LARGE JEANS INDIGO MEDIUM ICON
Simons | Medium Indigo Wide-Leg Jean, $79.
Flared at the bottom for a retro touch, this slightly faded denim adds an interesting detail with its visible gold stitching.
