11 Pairs of Jeans We're Putting in Our Denim Hall of Fame
I consider myself quite the denim aficionado. I've tried it all over the years: flares, boyfriend, skinny, straight-leg, the works. Living in NYC, I spend most days spanning the length of the Manhattan running from meetings to shoots to coffee shops with my laptop in tow; denim is my ultimate go-to when I need something that will take me through morning, noon, and night without fuss and — most importantly — without feeling like I need to change. In fact, I'm rarely not seen in some sort of denim uniform, which is ironic considering it took me until around the age of 12 to even put on a pair without feeling completely and utterly uncomfortable. But today, I literally couldn't function sartorially without them.
While I have my favorites that I wear in pretty constant rotation for months on end, I've spent the past few years amassing quite the list of favorites that I know will do me well, depending on what silhouette or vibe I'm seeking. So, as we embark upon Summer, I'm sharing that list with you. Consider it your ultimate guide to all things denim. And what could be better than that?
Ahead, find everything from classic vintage-style Levi's to ankle crops from 3x1, wide-legs that changed my whole perception of the trend from none other than Victoria Beckham, and affordable new creations from Aritzia's Denim Forum alike.
