Aveen's predictions for the season ahead...

"The overarching trend we are seeing this season is a shift towards wide-leg, oversized silhouettes. Slouchy jeans give a laid-back feel to any outfit but pair nicely with more feminine tops for an androgynous contrast. Barrel-leg shapes are also a nice update to this wide leg trend and an easy way to dip your toe in."

The Straight Leg


Let's start with a simple and vintage-inspired, classic straight leg jean that effortlessly pairs with everything. And there’s no better brand to turn to for vintage ’90s-inspired jeans than Agolde: "These 90s Pinch Waist Straight Leg Jeans from Agolde have reigned supreme for many seasons and are a key staple for any wardrobe," shares Aveen. And as for how she'd style them? "They look good with almost anything, but I would go full Canadian Tuxedo and style them with this JW Anderson denim jacket and a t-shirt from SKIMS," she says.

The Skinny Leg

7 For All Mankind

If you’re not quite ready to embrace wider leg styles, Aveen suggests slim leg silhouettes offer the perfect alternative. Aveen recommends the "Roxanne Mid Rise Slim Leg jeans as a fresh take on skinny jeans, with the dark wash being ideal for a more formal or evening look." She suggests pairing them with "a blouse from Victoria Beckham and a classic black blazer from Rohe to throw over your shoulders. Complete the look with the Sardine bag from Bottega and pumps from Jimmy Choo."

The Barrel Leg


Our buyer believes that barrel-leg jeans are the silhouette of the moment. "This cream pair from Mother are the perfect choice for experimenting with this shape," says Aveen. "The twisted seam also adds a nice point of difference. Style them with a full tonal look to inject a fresh springtime feel into your wardrobe."

The Tapered Leg


For those who prefer a lighter wash, Aveen suggests trying the "Long Barrel Straight Leg Jeans from Frame." These jeans not only feature a faded wash to transition you into spring and summer, but also add playful proportions to any outfit. "The slightly tapered ankle pairs nicely with a more feminine or delicate shoe, such as these Manolo Blahnik Maysale sling backs," says Aveen.

The Cargo Pants

Citizens of Humanity

Touching on the enduring utilitarian trend, Aveen adores these Marcelle Cargo Trousers from Citizens of Humanity. Sitting low on the waist with a tapered leg, they are easy, stylish and effortless. She suggests styling them with "a contrasting shoe, such as chic ballet flats from the Row, and pairing them with this cropped waisted jacket from Ba&sh to create a cinched-in silhouette."
