The Bright and Beautiful Jeans You Need in Your Wardrobe

Prints please.

Last Updated on October 6, 2021

When you think of denim, classic blue jeans instantly spring to mind – but in 2021, they’re looking a little different.

As we move away from restrictive and uncomfortable skinny jeans and edge towards slouchier styles, we’re also injecting some much-needed fun into our denim in the form of patterns.

Autumn calls for maximalism, so prints on pants are definitely welcome, along with other more-is-more trends such as bold brights and statement tights. (P.S. Find our trend report for AW21 here.)

Influencers have been embracing the look wholeheartedly on Instagram, leaving us feeling well and truly inspired by the looks they’ve created.

Here, we’ve found some of our favourite printed denim looks from fashion’s favourites – plus, 10 pairs of cute jeans from Monki, Lisa Says Gah and Free People, so you can get the look too.

How to wear printed jeans

Go brave or go home is our motto. We love this look from April Lockhart, who clashes her prints to perfection.

Sara Waiste always looks effortlessly chic and this look is no different. Matching her socks to her puff-sleeve top ties the look together perfectly.

Keep your outfit formula simple like Jazmine Rogers and stick to one hue from head to toe.

Sometimes less is more. Fia Hamelijnck looks effortlessly chic with a loose-fitting linen shirt to go with her floral jeans from Free People.

Co-ords are the best way to make an impact, as content creator Kandie J proves with this House Of Sunny look.
