Not to brag, but we’ve already called quite a few controversial, celeb-approved denim trends this year. Remember the baggy-jean outfit Gigi Hadid sported that launched the anti–skinny jean trend? Or the overalls trend Emily Ratajkowski and Margot Robbie made popular? Or how about the dreaded low-rise jeans trend that Bella Hadid is single-handedly bringing back? We saw all these denim trends coming from a mile away.
However, these celeb-endorsed denim trends blindsided us: Chloë Sevigny’s leg-revealing, split-seam jeans at the Cannes Film Festival, Yara Shahidi’s cargo-style jeans, Olivia Culpo’s jorts. Even we here at Who What Wear headquarters didn’t see these ones coming. Keep scrolling to see the controversial new celeb denim trends that caught us by surprise this year, and then shop them for yourself if you’re feeling bold.
