The loyalty of a good pair of jeans should never be underestimated as they are always the denim cure to your what-to-wear dilemma. As vintage style begins to break the surface into today’s world, jeans are one of the key items immersed in the old trends. There are four main categories of jeans that scream vintage—high rise, low-rise, patterned, and fold/cross over jeans. Here are Vogue’s go-to jean styles to ensure you find your denim partner with a vintage edge.
High rise jeans
High rise jeans are always a safe bet. With their ability to elongate your legs, when paired with a crop top or tight bodysuit, high rise jeans will make you look runway ready.
Low rise jeans
Low waist jeans were always a hit on the 2000s red carpet. Pair it with a cropped tee or halter neck top to bring out your inner vintage style.
A common mistake is associating jeans with only classic blue-washed denim. There are a multitude of patterned jeans to make it look like you put effort into an effortless outfit.
Fold/cross over jeans
Fold over and cross over jeans are attention grabbers. They will add flair to any outfit when paired with any top where the fold/cross over is visible.
