Vintage Denim

With all fashion trends, one day they’re in, and the next, they’re out. So it should come as no surprise that the skinny jean is now out and the vintage jean is in. 
The vintage jean (or known as the straight leg jean) has been making appearances on the runway and high street being coined as this season’s ‘it’ jean. With its high waist, straight leg and distressed wash, it is a nod to both the rugged rocker look and the so-Cal vibe. With its versatile appearance it can be worn all year round and suits most body shapes. 
Finding the perfect vintage jean can be found in three easy steps;

The right shape

Although the leg of the jean will be straight, make sure the pair of jeans fits correctly around the waist and hips. A good fit in this area will help the straight leg fall nicely giving you the appearance of a long slender leg.

Vintage wash

Denim can be washed in many variations but for a true vintage jean find a denim wash with a blue and white base with a grainy appearance. Think 70’s mid wash as this wash has more longevity in a straight leg jean.

Find your style

There are many design details of a vintage jean – from abrasions, rips, frayed hems, rolled hems and everything in between. However don’t be overwhelmed, find a pair that suits your style that gives you the authentic vintage feel to your wardrobe this season.
