Elastic-Waist Jeans Are the Latest Controversial Denim Trend to Return

Scroll down to content

Since a good 50% of a fashion editor’s day is spent on Net-a-Porter (fact), it’s easy to see why we’d make plenty of discoveries on the site. It stocks tons of new pieces multiple times a week, so it’s a great place to go for trend spotting. I’ve been in a new year, new jeans mindset lately, which took me straight to Net-a-Porters new denim arrivals. Lo and behold, I was met with something I wasn’t expecting: elastic-waist jeans. The brand responsible for this is UK-based L.F.Markey. According to its site, L.F.Markey is inspired by workwear and utility, which is evident in its new elastic-waist jeans, which are available in both denim and red.

Although this comfy-waistband style was quite popular in the ’80s and ’90s, we’ve barely seen it since (unless jeggings count?), but since everything else has recently returned from those decades, it seems fitting that this denim trend would as well. So what’s my verdict? I’d wear the 100% cotton jeans in a second. They look like all the other loose-fit jeans that are so on-trend right now, but with the addition of a very comfortable waistband. I’m sold.
