We found the $99 jeans you'll want in your wardrobe for years to come.

2021 has not been a good year for skinny jeans.

According to Gen Z, the ever-so-popular denim style is out of fashion and you need to hunt through your wardrobe, find your favourite pairs and throw them in the bin.

While it's completely irrelevant what Gen Z consider cool (if you love your skinny jeans, rock those skinny jeans), there are some other trends that we think you might like just as much.

First up, the biggest trend that's currently doing the rounds is the straight leg jean. 

The slim-line cut is flattering on everyone (trust us), you can dress a good pair up or down and from what we can see, the staple style is here to stay.

See?

Almost halfway into 2021, we've noticed one particular pair Australian women are loving: the Abrand A '94 High Slim Jeans.

These straight leg jeans tick all the boxes. They're high-waisted, have a slight 'mum jean' fit (not baggy but not tight) and they're cropped at the ankle. Plus, if you're short, Abrand has a petite range.

Sizes range from six to 16 and they're $99.95. 

As they sit between expensive and affordable options, they're the perfect investment pair to keep for years to come.

If the straight leg style isn't up your alley or you want to try something completely new, here are two other styles you're probably seeing everywhere.

Flared.

You'll either love them or hate them, but flared jeans are back. Only not as you know them.

The popular '70s flared jeans were typically skinny around the thighs and flared out toward the bottom. Now, they instead feature a straight-leg style to the knees and then flare out.

Like this:

Here are our fave wide-leg flares available right now.

Baggy jeans.

And last but not least, baggy 'mum jeans' are here to give your wardrobe some extra cred.

Over the past few years, this more relaxed fit has been popping up here and there, but this year, they'll be everywhere. Specifically, you'll notice baggy jeans that cinch at the waist and some that include a paperbag waist. Both styles are super flattering, so get around them.
