The editors at the Who What Wear offices are big denim fans—myself included. Yes, I regularly wear denim everywhere from the office to the weekend, as do my fellow editors. With my proclivity for denim and always wanting to discover the latest new styles, it got me wondering about the best jeans according to our editors. To find out their most recommended denim styles, I asked them which ones they’re currently stocking in their closets.
From vintage-like jeans that are actually brand-new and loose fit jeans that are gaining traction among the fashion set to super high-rise cuts and the jeans three editors (including myself) count as their favorites, find out the denim styles we’re wearing IRL ahead. Go on to see which denim silhouettes our editors are wearing and then shop each of them for yourself.
"I recently came across this pair of Levi's on a recent vintage shopping trip and haven't taken them off since. They're a straight fit jean with an elongated hem that perfectly skims the top of my ankle boots. Though my exact pair is a vintage find, this pair from Reformation is the closest fit I've found to them in any new jeans."
"Aptly dubbed the Ribcage style, the jeans offer the highest rise on any Levi's to date—and at 12 1/8 inches, the ribcage-grazing waistline puts other high-waisted jeans on the market to shame. The name makes them sound scary, I know, but once I buttoned my pair all the way up to my belly button, it became immediately clear that these were the most slimming (and comfortable!) jeans I had ever worn."
"I've been eyeing these leather skinnies from J Brand for almost a year and recently got them and all I can say is I wish I'd invested earlier. They are so good and such a wardrobe staple."
