Fetch may never happen, but denim is forever. This fall, the light-wash jean trend has crept its way back into our closets. But we’re not complaining—light-wash jeans give a casual, but kind-of-effortlessly chic vibe. (Plus, they’re comfortable!)
Unlike dark-wash denim, light-wash jeans offer versatility. Whether you’re into straight-leg, skinny, or boyfriend jeans, light-wash easily pairs with both neutral (black, white, and gray) and nude (cream, camel, and pastel) colors. Think nude booties and chunky knits or a black leather jacket, a white T-shirt, and sneakers.
Ready to add a lighter color to your jean repertoire? Here are nine light-wash options to choose from.
