Confession: I should preface this story by sharing that I have never been a skinny-jeans person. I detest how most denim fits my figure, but there’s something about skinny jeans that irks my soul on a whole new level. I know that’s a controversial take considering how much of a staple this style is, but I stand by it, especially since there are so many other denim trends and generally more flattering pant styles one can choose. Of course, if you’ll never give up your skinny jeans, I get it (you do you, darling), but if you’re open to the possibility of embracing something new, then keep reading. With spring in full swing and celebrities finally back out in the streets, there are many pant trends worth paying attention to and purchasing at the moment.
In that vein, I’ve rounded up six styles that dominated spring/summer 2022 collections and have been spotted on the celeb style set, and I shopped them out at Nordstrom. These styles are perfect if you want to mix things up or if you’re finally ready to cut the cord with skinny jeans but just need a little inspiration to do so.
