Our New Favorite Denim Cut Is Not a Skinny Jean

Maybe it's our new obsession Vetements. Or is it our never-ending love of Levi's 501s? Either way, cropped, straight-leg jeans are the latest item on our must-have list. Equal parts Gordie Lachance , Mariah Carey circa 1993, and predictable-but-unavoidable-to-mention James Dean, the high waist on this jean creates the perfect peach booty while the slim silhouette makes legs look ultra-lean. Sorry skinny jeans, you don't stand a chance this summer.
