Last year was challenging for everyone, though it was a comfy year clothing-wise. The lockdown allowed us a cheat pass on fashionable attire with loungewear and pajamas. Still, we missed the opportunity to sport various looks or dress up our favorite pair of jeans for a weekend party. Fortunately, 2021 comes with a certain optimism, and it’s time to revisit our wardrobe and step out in new jeans.

Generally, there are many reasons why jeans should be a part of your wardrobe. For example, jeans are made from high-quality materials that make them durable and long-lasting. Given their durability and strength, they’re easy to clean; just put them in the washing machine and wait. Unlike other types of clothing, they’re comfortable and stretchy due to the elastic fabric, such as polyester. Moreover, wearing jeans can provide a classic look for men. 

Considering all these things, jeans are undoubtedly one of the best clothing options for men. Thankfully, with the popularization of internet shopping, we ditched spending hours on the high street looking for the right pair of jeans. Instead, it’s easier and a time-saver to shop for denim online.

Many online fashion stores have collaborated with big brands to keep up with the latest trends. While talking about branded jeans, the Italian brand Diesel has marked its position among the mass. You can explore their impressive spring-summer collection online and from affordable Diesel Jeans outlets.

While lockdown hibernation may make you in love with tracksuits and pajamas, it’s time to slip into jeans by viewing the latest denim trends. To make your life a little easier, we have rounded up the best jeans trends for men in summer 2021. From classic styles to seasonal variations, here are all the latest denim trends you need to know.

Classic Stacking Up

Talking about menswear–cropped and pin-rolled jeans will always be one step ahead. However, jeans with longer legs stacked above the ankle, mainly popularized in the late 1990s and early 2000s, are one iconic style produced by the era. This summer, the style is making a comeback with a bang.

Be prepared to forget there was ever a different lengthier way to do your jeans. This style works best with your regular-fit denim than with skinny types. Uncuff your jeans or buy a new pair and complement the look with a regular-fitted t-shirt, polo, or formal shirt.

Baggy Jeans

The revival of 1990s iconic styles is so apparent in 2021. Baggy jeans are back, but it’s not only for teenage skaters this time. If lockdown made you more concerned about comfort than fashion, baggy jeans are at your rescue. This loose-fitting jeans trend is on point after lockdown, which is as relaxed as your favorite sweatpants.

This style allows you to embrace broader and looser-fitting legs in different ways—mid-rise, high-rise, and roomy on the thigh with a slight taper from the knee to the ankle. To rock, your baggy jeans look, don it with slouchy and relaxed garments.

Timeless Slim Cuts

Though skinnies have almost disappeared from menswear, slim cuts still reign on the throne. Slim-fit jeans look good with any outfit, regardless of the season. The style is simple, modest, and, most importantly, timeless— it won’t leave you for the next couple of years.

This versatile denim looks good with any outfit, though it works best with fitted garments. For a sleek casual look, opt for the color black and pair it with black shoes and an Oxford shirt or crewneck sweatshirt.

Back to High-rise

The high-rise jeans style of the 1950s, 1980s, and 1990s is making a fabulous comeback this summer. Though it lost its throne to mid-rise and low-rise styles over the years, this retro throwback is the style that will always be relevant and trendy. Before opting for the trend, you must keep in mind your height. This look goes best with the average-height person. If you have long legs, adding more height to the above will hinder your body’s proportion.

Blue Jeans

While talking about donning jeans, classic denim blue can’t escape the fashion radar. This style should always be handy if you want to future-proof your wardrobe. The good news is that plenty of washes are available to mix up your summer style. If you want something timeless yet elegant mid-wash indigo is unmatchable. Plus, raw indigo denim is the smartest option for casual wear. Complement your look with flannel shirts, plain t-shirts, or casual outwear.

Faded Denim

Faded jeans are trending hard this year, and prominent jeans brands offer excellent quality washes. Faded denim looks great but should be kept for a casual look or weekend parties. Cuff them above the ankle and step out with suede Chukka boots or a pair of throwback runners. However, aside from Chukka boots, you may also partner your faded denim with trendy vegan boots, perfect for winter. They don’t only keep you cozy, but they can also make you look stylish. 

Patchwork

This summer is coming with some notable jeans trends, and the patchwork trend hit stores and street-style galleries worldwide. It’s not hard to make it a part of a cohesive outfit, but you must keep it minimal like any other menswear. Avoid monstrous patches; opt for sparingly used patches with tastefully executed cut-and-sew detailing. Keep things minimal with slouchy and relaxed clothing.

Distressed Jeans

The days are gone when frayed hems had their moment under the limelight. Now they are replaced by loose-fitting distressed denim, and the fashion crowd is obsessed with it. Ripped jeans have always been a massive trend among celebrities, and most of the A-listers have been seen to carry the look in many different ways. This torn and tattered denim style of the mid-2010s still holds its place and always works best with t-shirts and polos.

Straight-leg Bleached

Check the retina-searing bleached-out denim if you haven’t had enough of the summer jeans trend. Leap your classic clean blue washes and turn heads with these trendy trousers. Though skinny jeans don’t enjoy the attention they used to get previously, the style is not obsolete. So, think twice if you are throwing away your favorite pair of skinnies. You never know which fashion bell will ring in the upcoming season.

Conclusion 

Jeans have indeed become a popular clothing option for men. Whether you wear them for work or personal activities, you’ll never go out of style with the different designs and styles of jeans. Thus, if you want to boost your physical appearance with jeans, keep the information mentioned above so you’ll know the latest trends for men in summer.
