Ah, denim. Where would our wardrobes be without it? We dread to think. Still, however integral to our daily looks it may be, it’s still seldom makes an appearance on the high-fashion runways. At least that was considered to be the case, until a host of designers began giving it the ultimate seal of approval by incorporating it into the catwalk collections. Now, denim regularly appears in the seasonal line-ups of everyone, from Chanel to Dior, as well as the brands known for their more casual aesthetics, such as Chloé and Celine. It just goes to show, that there’s a place for denim, no matter what your fashion preference may be.

Style Notes: Of course, we can’t discuss denim trends without talking jeans. And there’s one classic style that is proving just as popular for autumn has it has been for summer (more on that later), another trending jean on the autumn/winter 2021 catwalks was those with pressed creases to the front of the trouser leg. A subtle nod to the ‘70s. 

Style Notes: The lighter hues of denim are taking a backseat to moodier, deep indigo tones this winter, as seen at Hermès, Christian Dior, and so much more. Wear them layered on top of one another for maximum impact. 

Style Notes: Okay, so not technically a trend, but straight-leg jean devotees will be pleased to hear that they were even more prevalent on the autumn/winter 2021 runways than they were in previous seasons. Get ready to have your pick of so many impressive pairs. 

Style Notes: If you live in denim, then you might want to consider taking your obsession up a notch with the addition of a denim bag, as seen at Acne Studios. This specific style is yet to land online, but there are plenty of other denim arm candy options out there at the moment. 

Style Notes: Denim skirts always make a comeback during the summer months, but usually start to disappear when the temperatures begin to drop. Not this season! Celine has decided to keep them around for autumn, specifically in maxi lengths.
