So far, straight leg jeans ascent to the height of fashion has been steady. And since then — that is, from the time word spread that another previously popular style, the skinny jean, was no longer a trend due to its lack of comfort — you’ve probably collected a slew of the style. After all, there are so many variations to choose from: true blue, faded, distressed, tapered, and two-tone are some of the common types that A-listers, fashion insiders, and influencers have endorsed. Though asymmetrical jeans, like Lori Harvey’s recent pair, are actually the rising star from that bunch.
On Monday, Harvey seemed comfortable in a casual look fit for the Los Angeles summer heat — an airy, white button-down, which she wore open to expose a coordinated bra top, and a pair of baggy jeans by EB Denim, but with a twist. The lightly distressed bottoms featured a crisscross waistband with asymmetrical fastenings. Other cool upgrades to her look included gold hoops, cat-eye sunglasses, a furry top-handle bag, and leather slide sandals. As for her glam, it was also kept simple. She wore her hair in a sleek bun and finished the whole look with a glossy lip.
This wasn’t the only time Harvey has embraced the intricate denim trend; in May, she was seen wearing the style with a cropped white T-shirt and statement accessories. She also isn’t the only celebrity to embrace asymmetrically buttoned jeans. The look flaunts a freshness that is trendy but still versatile, which is perhaps why fellow models like Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber have also worn them this season. It’s a restrained play on modernity that celebrates the timelessness of denim when it’s re-crafted in various forms and styled accordingly.
Styling options can include highlighting the waist detail with a fitted bodysuit, tank top, or T-shirt and adding layers of jewelry. Alternatively, you can half-tuck an oversized button-up or wear with a tailored shirt and blazer, a feminine blouse, or a knitted sweater for even more polish.
And whether you lean towards faded washes with vintage appeal, dark-rinse denim with an air of urbanity, or frayed detailing to offset prim pieces, there are plenty of options ripe for the picking. See and shop TZR’s edit, which includes Harvey’s exact pair, ahead.
