Whether fashioned into a range of flattering jean silhouettes or imparting some nonchalance to a tailored dress, the sartorial staple is consistently reimagined season after season and never loses its cool.

To discover which iteration embraces your personal style, follow our guide to finding your true-blue match and our tips on how to style it.
