The beloved skinny is undeniably the most popular choice of jean, a no-brainer for everyday wear. And though the silhouette certainly has its place, we’re looking to shake up our denim game for the better. Enter the latest blues donned by It girl Gigi Hadid in New York City. Equal parts modern and retro, the high-waisted, straight-leg pair rendered in rigid denim offers a fresh alternative. The somewhat boyish shape injects off-duty effortlessness into even the most polished wares as demonstrated by the supermodel. Coincidentally, several of our favorite denim brands are embracing the straight-leg cut with a vintage-inspired spin. Shop the must-have style ahead. We predict it’ll be the most coveted denim of the new year.

501 Skinny Jean in Clear Minds
Reviving the brand's iconic 501 shape, these updated Levi's are reinterpreted for a modern fit. While slimmer than the original, they retain the quintessential, non-stretch straight-leg silhouette.
Cheeky in Twice As Nice
If a '90s supermodel could be a jean, this would be it. Mother's new Cheeky style is the perfect balance of current and retro, making it a must for cool girls everywhere. The tapered leg and high-waist lift the derriere up for that envy-inducing backside.
