The Best Denim To Channel ’90s Supermodel Style

When you think of your favorite ’90s supermodels, visions of off-duty beauties rocking denim come to mind (like Kate Moss’ epic 1992 Calvin Klein ad campaign). Fortunately, a myriad of brands are bringing back modern takes on ankle zippers, lighter washes and logos. Pair any of these jeans with your favorite gauzy T-shirt, stacked heel boots and a de rigueur choker necklace to nail the ’90s supermodel vibe now.

Channel Your Inner Supermodel Via '90s Denim



Topshop's just-launched denim line features nine styles, each inspired by a different supermodel. There is something for everyone, whether you're searching for mom jeans or high-waisted skinnies or boyfriends. Pair with a crisp white button-up and you're good to go!



The iconic Guess triangle patch was a status symbol back in the day—who didn't want a pair of Guess jeans? Of course, wait long enough and everything comes back into fashion. We're obsessed with the whole line of high-waisted styles, especially since they ring in right around 100 bucks.



Ankle zips, acid wash and denim-bow detailing? Sign us up! You'll be surprised how quickly these bold Jordache throwback styles become part of your weekly rotation.


Tommy Hilfiger

Tommy Hilfiger's old-school, boxer-exposing baggy jean look evokes major high school nostalgia. Although the pairing isn't suited for the workweek, we're feeling this vibe for off-duty brunch and lounging around the house.


Marithé and François Girbaud

Remember Marithé and François Girbaud jeans with the signature label across the front zip? Well, the veteran denim duo is making a comeback, but this time their relaunch is available only at pop-up stores in France. From now until early summer, keep this on your radar if your travels take you overseas. Fingers crossed the line will be stateside soon!


Calvin Klein

The very mention of Calvin Klein Jeans always brings to mind Kate Moss' epic 1992 ad campaign. Thankfully, the fashion house is still turning out classic styles in icy blue, saturated indigo and jet black washes.



If you love vintage 501s but don't have the patience to go vintage shopping, you're in luck. Levi's recently launched a line complete with distressed stone washes, hippie patches and embroidery that look retro but have a modern fit so you can easily find your size.
