Women’s Denim Essentials: The 4 jean styles you need for your wardrobe in 2023
Every year as fashion trends come and go, there is one wardrobe item that continues to reign supreme: jeans. Denim is a true closet must-have, but finding the right pair of jeans for you can be something of an ordeal when there’s so many options available. Jeans are such a versatile wardrobe item, capable of being dressed up or dressed down for all kinds of events and occasions, so it’s always a good idea to keep your wardrobe stocked with a few different pairs that can cater to your style and schedule.
At Replay we specialise in designing and making premium designer denim pieces that look good, feel good, and fit good without breaking your budget. Replay jeans are designed in Italy and made with the highest quality organic cottons, recycled fabrics, and eco-friendly production methods available to bring you jeans that are built to last, season after season.
Ready to find your perfect match? We’ve rounded up 4 essential jean styles that every fashion-forward woman needs in her wardrobe, from skinny to boyfriend and everything in between.
THE SKINNY JEAN
Seems a little... backwards, right? In reality you should only wash your denim once every 10 wears at most if you want to help it maintain it's fit and prevent the fabric from shrinking. Spilled a little sauce or wine at dinner? Just use a damp cloth or an old toothbrush with a mild soap to remove stains.
Aside from helping to keep your denim in top condition, limiting the number of washes between wears is also much better for the environment. When it is time to throw your trusty pair into the machine, make sure to wash on cold, reduce the spin as much as possible, and line dry in the shade to help protect the cotton fibres.
New Luz Hyperflex Skinny Jeans
One of our most flattering styles, the New Luz Hyperflex Skinny Jeans have a signature skinny fit silhouette that hugs the body from the waist down to the ankle with a regular mid-rise waist. Made with our power stretch modal denim, the New Luz Hyperflex Skinny Jeans have a soft feel with heaps of stretch to ensure a comfortable fit, plus a classic light blue wash that goes with absolutely everything.
Luzien Skinny Jeans
Another classic Replay skinny style, the Luzien Skinny Jeans are a women’s denim staple. Luzien jeans are made with our extra light Hyperflex power stretch cotton denim that’s snug from the hip all through the leg while staying super flexible, which makes them comfortable for wearing in all seasons. The classic 5 pocket design and ankle length finish the look.
THE BOYFRIEND JEAN
Contrary to the name, you do not need a man in your life to get your hands on a pair of these jeans. At one time believed to be a micro-trend, the boyfriend jean silhouette has become an enduring wardrobe staple for many women of all shapes and sizes. The hallmarks of this cut? More rigid denim, wide legs, and a slouchy fit around the thigh that emphasises a relaxed silhouette.
Leaning into masculine design elements, the range of boyfriend jeans available online at Replay include tapered balloon leg jeans with high waists as well as low riding distressed styles so that you can nail the look without compromising comfort.
Marty Vaqueros Broken Edge Boy Fit Jeans
These jeans are a staple for women’s casual outfitting in any season. The Marty Vaqueros Broken Edge Jean is made from a baggy comfort stretch denim that looks stiff but moves with you, providing more comfort than a standard boyfriend jean. The straight leg and low crotch coupled with light distressing gives these jeans the ultimate low-maintenance-cool-girl look.
Keida Balloon Fit Jeans
More closely aligned with a sleek masculine style, the Keida Balloon Fit Jeans are made with a light stretch and high waist for a cool vintage look. Loose in the hip and thigh before tapering close to the ankle, the Keida Jean is the perfect middle ground between baggy and slim leg styles.
THE WIDE LEG JEAN
This cut is truly having a moment this year. From their peak in the 90s to the closet of every current A-list star and celebrity, wide leg jeans can be spotted everywhere and in every season. Wide leg jeans are the perfect pair to give off that effortlessly cool, trying-but-not-really vibe when out and about. With the added bonus of being the easiest style to get on, wide leg jeans are the ultimate in comfort.
Whether you’re a wide leg aficionado or just dipping your toes in, Replay has the range to suit you. From high waisted to low rise, cropped and full length styles, slightly wide vs. parachute legs, we’ve got a pair that’s destined for your wardrobe.
Julliah Wide Leg Jeans
From our signature Rose Label collection, the Julliah Wide Leg Jean is made from our comfort stretch denim in a vintage blue wash that’s ideal for day to day casual wear. These jeans have a flattering high waist with a loose fit through the leg, cut super wide and cropped with distressing on the hem.
Laelj Wide Leg Star Jeans
The quintessential “cool girl” jean, the Laelj Wide Leg Star Jeans are another key style from our Rose Label collection. These jeans are born from the skate and surf culture of the 90s, with a high waisted fit and baggy full length leg that sits a little slimmer for a more masculine look. The custom star and chain detail at the front pocket adds a touch of femininity to this otherwise boyish style.
THE HIGH WAISTED JEAN
Arguably the most flattering jean style to come out of the last decade, high waisted jeans have become a true wardrobe staple. Whether they’re a skinny leg, slim leg, or baggy fit, the high waistline immediately makes them more comfortable and endlessly wearable for women of any shape and size.
If you’re adverse to the resurgence of low-rise jeans, don’t worry - Replay specialises in jeans that come up to the belly button or higher. Sprinkled across all our major women’s styles and collections, we’ve got a pair of high waisted jeans to suit you and your style.
New Luz Flare Jeans
Like our signature New Luz Skinny Jeans, the New Luz Flares are made from our power stretch modal cotton, making them the ultimate in soft, stretchy, comfortable denim. A classic boot flare, the New Luz Flare Jeans sit high on the waist and snug through to the knee before loosening up into a chic but subtle flare. The medium blue wash goes with absolutely everything and the double-button closure adds a small statement to an otherwise simple jean.
Kiley Broken Edge Jeans
A truly classic jean, the Kiley Broken Edge Jeans are an effortlessly cool style. Sitting above the belly button with a slim tapered ankle grazer leg, the Kiley Jeans are made of our comfort cotton, giving them just enough stretch to move with you. Characterised by the vintage stonewash, ripped knees and microabrasions, these jeans are the ultimate off-duty pair.
