Every day and forever. Finding the perfect pair of jeans can be a life-long search, start by looking back at classic American designers from the 1970s-1990s for timeless denim cuts.
The original Levi's are still my go-to; some of my favorite Levi's styles are the 501’s for a classic straight leg, 517 for a bootcut with a 70s feel, 511 slim fit and cut cropped, 512’s for a carrot leg or 550 for a boyfriend fit.
