Discover the hottest denim jeans right now and how to style them in this blog post inspired by Insta, TikTok, and our fave fashionistas. It’s time to treat your denim wardrobe to some new jean styles that you can rock with confidence throughout 2021.

How to style jeans in 2021

If you're ready to perfect your post-lockdown style, here's a bit of inspo that we hope will help you put together your new favourite denim-forward ensembles.


Lean into 70s chic with a pair of denim flares that will see you through everything from casual brunches and cocktails with the girls, to garden parties and festivals. Skinny denim lovers find transitioning to flares super easy because they hug the leg before kicking out at the bottom. Wear them with a basic tee and trainers for a super retro look. Add a tie dye top or shirt for the ultimate hippy vibe. Or, give them a modern twist with a silk blouse or a lace-up crop top to really nail this look. 

Split Hem Jeans

Split hem jeans are very similar to flares, but they have a little extra personality and allow you to show off your favourite shoes! Opt for a high waisted style to balance your silhouette. Practically tailor-made for relaxed nights out, split hem denim works amazingly well with a chic white shirt and a pair of gorgeous heels. If you want your denim to be the star of the show, choose a barely-there heel, but don't be scared to make a statement with your footwear as these jeans will expertly show them off.

Wide Leg Jeans

Wide legged jeans were hugely popular during the early 00s, and they have officially made a comeback. High waisted wide leg jeans cinch you in at all the right places.

They're way easier to style than you might have initially imagined. Style with a shirt for a sophisticated boss-babe vibe, wear with a white body for a flattering summery look, or pair with a crop top to bare some skin and show off your midriff.

Straight Leg Jeans

If the oversized look isn't your thing, a pair of straight leg jeans will be more your style. You’ll be wearing these timeless jeans all year-round. Pair some blue ripped straight leg jeans with a pastel top and sandals for a dreamy summery outfit. Or, style some black straight leg jeans with knitwear in the colder months. Accessorise with chunky boots and your favourite leather jacket for an effortlessly grunge look.

Mom Jeans

Mom jeans are here to stay! They have been around for a few years and we are still lovin’ this stylish, high-waisted style. Mom jeans are versatile and perfect for effortless styling. Ripped mom jeans are a must-have item for 2021, style them with a slogan tee and trainers for an off-duty look. Or, dress them up with a puff sleeve top and nude heels for drinks with the gals.  

Distressed jeans

From frayed hems and super distressed styles to ripped jeans that expose both knees, we are obsessed with distressed jeans here at Rebellious. These jeans look endlessly stylish when dressed up or styled down and will see you through almost every social occasion with ease. You can't go wrong with a fitted bodysuit, a pair of distressed denim jeans, and a shacket. Or, go full glam with a corset top and killer heels for the ultimate jeans and a nice top combo.

Contrast Stitch Jeans

The best thing about denim is that it can be as understated or as packed full of personality as you want. Contrast stitch jeans are a new-season must-have. Bold contrast stitching can add a sense of fun to a simple style. Style some black jeans with white stitching with a white tee for a stylish everyday outfit or, dress them up with a black cut out top and black heels for a fierce night out look.
