Denim is a funny thing. One small change to the cut/fit and a new “must-have” pair is born.
This spring it’s still all about a straighter leg – thank you vintage Levi’s! And to take it one step further, there are many iterations of the trend: cropped at the ankle, wide leg cropped at the knee, super high-waisted, hip-fitting with just the right amount of holes sliced at the knee, frayed bottoms, cut slightly higher in the front than the back bottoms, etc.
I’m personally loving where we are with denim at the moment – the vintage-y vibe feels so effortless, very Los Angeles (which as an LA girl makes my getting dressed life easier!). I toss them on with a plain tee, a button up, slides or loafers for day, and sexy heels or pumps for night. So easy! And fresh! And oddly forgiving. A looser fit gives me more flexibility than say my tight skinny jeans when it comes to those days where I’m feeling bloated or just straight up blah. Win-win all around.
The key is finding the right pair for you. If you have the patience to search for vintage Levi’s RE / DONE is THE place and if not, here’s a round-up of some of my favorites made by different brands, all at different price points:
