New ’90s Jeans and How to Wear Them

The past called and we’re totally answering. Head back to the ’90s with three updated ’90s jean fits and the tops to wear with ’em. Read on to learn how to feed your nostalgia with new ’90s looks practically made for between-weather layering season.

’90s Wide Leg Jeans

Chill out in a wide leg baggy jean for a quintessentially laid-back look. ‘90s Wide Leg Jeans have a high rise, baggy leg shape, and slight puddle at the ankle for that on-trend loose and relaxed vibe that looks great with a pair of sneakers or slides. Try them in classic rigid denim or with a Comfort Stretch Waistband (stretchy at the waist, rigid everywhere else), then finish the whole ’fit with a pretty lace top and shacket for layers that let you loosen up.

’90s Bootcut Jeans

The bootcut jean is back and better than ever. Try the ‘90s Bootcut Jean for a new take on the OG classic, featuring an updated 18.5” bootcut leg opening and a high rise that hits juuust right. Go for ones with ripped knees and frayed hems for throwback vibes, then pair them with a floral or printed peasant blouse for a flower child look. 

’90s Low-Rise Straight Jeans

Try the Low-Rise ‘90s Straight Jean for a tried-and-true straight leg paired with a juuust-low-enough rise for extra ‘90s vibes. Pair them with a comfy True Tank and flannel shirt, then finish the look with your favorite sneakers or slip-on shoes. Extra tip: cuff your jeans to show off your sneaks and socks.
