-Wash is an important thing to consider
A light blue faded wash will most likely be the easiest to find and will give off a very distinctive vintage vibe. Try to find a pair of jeans that has accents of stone white in the thigh area. (This will give an awesome slimming effect, and help easily coordinate looks with your summer wardrobe).
-Fit and sizing
When trying on vintage denim, do not trust the size on the label because every pair has been worn differently. Try on several different sizes of the same style to determine what fits you the best. If you can’t try them on, measure the waist and the inseam to determine size. (For your convenience, we’ve included sizing of our model to help determine if the jeans pictured above would be a suitable fit for you) – :)
This season, its all about the no-hem-hemline; a frayed hemline will give your jeans a raw and deconstructed look. They are easy to pull off with a pair of ankle boots or a classic heel. This trend is very prevalent and this seasons newest designers including, Vetements and Levis/REdone.
