Timeless Denim Pieces to Add to Your Wardrobe

Denim trends tend to be fickle, short lived and quickly dismissed. (See: the now-cringeworthy early 2000s boot cut craze, the very dated scrunched-ankle skinny, or the divisive wide leg crop fad from a few years ago.) But classic shapes and thoughtful details will never let you down. Instead of chasing the next big thing, invest in straight-leg jeans in selvedge fabrics, rugged workwear-inspired styles, and old-school overalls that stand the test of time. Here, one editor shares her go-to silhouettes.

Gorski shearling lined jacket, $995,

You can’t go wrong—or cold!—with a little ‘90s-inspired shearling.

Stan Ray x Marc Jacobs Workwear Jacket, $270,

This is a great layering piece. Thin enough that it won’t feel too bulky over a sweater, but sturdy enough to keep the wind out.

Vintage Oversized Denim Overalls, $89,

Layer a turtleneck or your favorite cashmere sweater underneath these and you’ve sorted out your winter look.

Lemaire wide leg jeans, $340,

I love a white jean year-round. These are a bit oversized, and the creamy ivory color (as opposed to a stark summer white) makes them perfect for all seasons.

Beatnik high-rise slim jeans, $328,

These slim jeans from Slvrlake are perfect for tucking into boots.

The Row Cropped high-rise wide-leg jeans, $260,

These wide leg jeans from The Row are particularly great for anyone who likes to layer stockings under your pants in the winter. Warmth without any bulk.

Premium high-rise straight fit jeans, $128,

Obsessed with these Gap Jeans—this is the Gap we all grew up with! This color looks great dressed down or up.

The Super-Soft Relaxed Jean, $68,

The perfect jean for running errands or lounging around the house. They’re so soft that sometimes I forget I’m even wearing jeans.
