Although it’s been a minute since we slipped into our jeans, we have been itching to dress up a bit, and what better way to welcome fall than with some new denim?

One trend we’ll be seeing a lot more of is biodegradable denim. As more consumers develop a stronger desire to care for our planet, retailers are creating collections of stretch biodegradable denim made of plant-based materials that can decompose, producing a minimal environmental impact. We first saw this introduced at Stella McCartney’s fall/winter 2020 show and expect to see more brands adopting the new technology.

Nostalgia will continue to play a big role with updated take on the ’90s bootcut styles — think Rachel Green’s denim in Friends — and a ’70s flare with an ’80s pleated high waist.
