Jeans are a staple in most people’s wardrobes, with some people owning multiple pairs and others having their old faithfuls that have been worn and washed so many times their rips look purposeful. While there are some exceptions to the rule the jeans that normally stay on trend, and do really well on the high-street are the simplest ones — think skinny, straight leg and boot cut.
There are reasons for this, jeans with embellishments tend to wear quicker often loosing their attraction, and various silhouettes go in and out of season in the blink of an eye meaning a person may prefer to invest in a good pair of skinny jeans rather than a pair of mom jeans at the same price.
This is where designers begin to get clever and by recognising trends such as this they now tweak and improve upon popular styles. One fashion brand taking jeans to a new level is Agolde who have been making a name for themselves recently as their jeans are flawlessly cut and have a premium-look wash.
However, there is one pair of jeans among the bunch that have caught our eye and could spark a new trend for 2021. The jeans feature an overlap at the high-rise waist, creating an asymmetrical design. By repositioning the button and zip, Agolde have create a look that is impressive yet simple, making it pure genius.
While the jeans seem to be appearing on the pages of some fashion bloggers spurring on their popularity the “Agolde Criss Cross Jeans” cost £229.79 making them expensive for the ordinary buyer. Which is why it’s no surprise that other fashion brands are jumping on the bandwagon and developing their own versions or dupes of the jeans as there are a similar pair of asymmetric jeans being sold on Princes Polly Boutique for around £55.
The question here is will tier restrictions continue to influence how we shop and what we wear, will the UK still be living in sweatpants or are we ready to put our jeans back on?
