Fall is officially here! With it, comes a bunch of cool trends you’ll want to partake in that will carry on into winter. While you may not want to try out all of autumn’s latest and greatest styles, you definitely want to be in the fashion loop, and get your faves!

That’s why we are sharing 14 of the top denim trends for Fall 2019. Jeans are such a classic, and it’s fun to see how denim is reimagined season after season. We selected several trends that are already popping up everywhere on Instagram and quite a few classic styles you probably already have in your closet —  check them out!


Baggy Grandpa Jeans

For those who don’t want to squeeze into tiny jeans for the holidays, we have a trend you might love — grandpa jeans. These jeans are loose yet tapered, comfy, high-waisted, usually in an old-school light wash, and just relaxed, in that abuelito kind of way. You will also see grandpa-like details like a carpenter handle on these jeans.

Paper Bag Waist Jeans

Another comfortable yet stylish denim trend for fall is paper bag waist jeans. These pants look just like they sound — pleated and gathered at the waist, usually with a tie. This highlights and slims the midsection without being tight. In general, tie-waist jeans are another standalone trend you will also be seeing this season.

High-Rise Straight-Leg Jeans

The next jean trend you will see on fashionistas far and wide is high-rise, straight-leg jeans. These are a nod to the ’90s, as are a lot of recent trends, and they’re an easy style to wear. You get a sleek leg, but with a bit more room than a skinny cut, and a high-waist style is flattering for many, as it hides any tummy issues you may want to hide.

Denim on Denim


Known as the Canadian tuxedo, the denim on denim trend is a classic style that is also very right now. This can be in the form of a denim/chambray shirt and jeans, or a chambray top with jean skirt, and other such combinations. A denim jumpsuit is an easy way to partake in the look.

Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans live in most of our closets since they were a big trend for a while. Well, they are on-trend for fall of 2019! As we always try to remind everyone, wear what you want and what you feel best in (trend or no trend); that being said, this season has so many different, stylish styles to choose from!

Cargo + Carpenter Jeans

Another trend you’ll be seeing when it comes to denim are jeans in either a cargo or carpenter style. This means utility-style pockets, carpenter handles, and traditionally a more stiff, durable workman-style fabric (for the carpenter jeans).

Side-Striped Jeans

You may own a pair of tuxedo-striped pants; if you do, it’s time to bring them out again! Side-striped pants are in vogue for fall. The stripes can be made up of ribbon, fabric, beads, or anything else. Another similar trend that you will be seeing are jeans that are split up the sides, be it near the ankle or further up the leg (with leg showing or a contrasting fabric underneath).

Raw Hems


A trend that has been going strong, and won’t be going anywhere for fall and winter is frayed-hem jeans. This is such an easy trend to partake in. You can easily cut and then wash your existing jeans to reveal a raw, frayed edge and refresh denim that has gone stale in your wardrobe.

Printed Denim

Who said jeans have to be boring?! One of the funnest trends for fall is printed denim. Whether you want to try out a pair of pants in leopard, snakeskin, or tie-dye, step outside the box and have fun with it!

Boot Cut/Flare Jeans


Whether it’s a more demure bootcut or a more dramatic bellbottom style, bootcut jeans are in again! These are great for balancing a curvy bottom half and look fab with all those stylish fall boots. They’re also a breath of fresh, yet vintage, air after seeing so many straight-leg styles!

Fashion Nova Bell Bottom Blues Jeans – Olive, Available at fashionnova.com, $29.98


Vintage-Style Jeans

Bellbottom jeans lead us to our next Fall 2019 trend: vintage-style jeans! You will see ’70s bootcut styles; ’80s acid wash options; and ’90s light-wash relaxed straight-leg pants everywhere. These are great when you want to rock a look that is both throwback and of the moment.

ASOS Reclaimed Vintage inspired The ’90 skinny jeans in acid wash, Available at asos.com, $19


Cuffed Jeans

Probably the easiest denim trend to follow, along with the raw edge jeans, is cuffed jeans. You don’t have to buy a new pair to partake — just cuff the skinny and straight-leg jeans you already own! But of course, I wanted to suggest a rad pair you could add to your closet.

Wide-Leg Jeans

Another trend that will be big for fall and winter of this year is wide-leg jeans. Whether it’s with a paper-bag waist, in a trouser style, or with a vintage feel (like culottes), the look is usually fashionable and dramatic.

Trouser Jeans

Keeping in line with the wide-leg jean trends of fall are trouser jeans. In such a casual time, even at the office, trouser jeans allow you to be youthful and comfortable, while also more professional, dressier, and with some stylish edge.
