Every Denim Trend Coming for Your Favorite Skinny Jeans in 2019
Waistlines are on the rise (literally, some higher than the belly button) and legs are getting roomier. Everything from a slight boot-cut to a '70s wide-leg pant is fair game for spring. Colorful denim is also in bloom, from neutral shades like pink, lavender, and olive to bright, bold colors like magenta, blue, and red.
While all of the newness in denim is exciting, one of the top denim trends is the return of the classic straight leg. The cut, which Levi’s 501s have made famous again and again (and again and again) is back in a big way. In every shade of blue imaginable, the classic fit is the comfort jean a lot of women will be living in this year. Whether you refer to them as your “mom” jean or as your “vintage style,” this fit is wide enough in the thigh, high enough at the waist and roomy enough at the calf to feel GOOD.
To figure out what other denim trends will be coming for our skinny jeans in 2019, we checked in with stylist Megan Hungerford, to get her favorite picks for each of our denim trends. Whether she's styling editorial features or online catalogs, these are the jeans she can't live without for Spring.
Hungerford says skyscrapers are easily the most flattering jean you can buy! Make sure you find a high-rise style that hugs you at the smallest part of your waist for the best fit. A French tuck is a go-to styling tip for showing off high waisted denim, but try knotting a tee at the hem or tying a button front blouse for an elevated look.

Colored denim is for more than just a white shirt, says Hungerford. Pair these spring hues with colorful stripes or a modern floral top.

Wide-leg (from bootcut to flare)
Hungerford says a wide-leg/flare jean is perfect for women who are balancing out full hips. Try a cropped pair if you wear sneakers and flats; long flare jeans look best skimming the floor with a chunky heel.
