Lily Collins' Go-To Jeans Are From This Old-School Denim Brand Every Millennial Grew Up On
Some of the most iconic trends of the '90s may be back and bigger than ever in 2019 (read: chokers, platform kicks, and overalls), but the early aughts are proving to be just as prevalent in this year's style scene. From cargo pants to Vans' iconic checkerboard slip-on sneakers, the fashion obsessed are gravitating toward throwback styles every millennial likely wore in their high school days. The latest to add to that growing list of 2000s classics? Lily Collins' go-to jeans, which are from an old-school denim brand that's as beloved as ever today.
Collins' best red-carpet moments are defined by über-glamorous gowns and an equally bold makeup to boot — just take a look at the actor's 2019 Met Gala getup as proof. But when it comes to her off-duty uniform, the 30-year-old seems to prefer a decidedly more low-key approach. Easygoing tees, oversized cardigans, and one particular pair of 7 for All Mankind jeans — a brand that emerged on the scene in 2000 and has remained a top denim contender since its debut — have become a regular in her street-style ensembles.
On May 25, Collins was spotted en route to a birthday party, wearing all of her signature wardrobe staples: a loose-fitting black T-shirt (complete with an asymmetrical, cutout neckline), a floral, tie-front cape from Sydney-based brand Camilla, and a pair of cropped 7 for All Mankind jeans that you can still scoop up right now.
Collins' pants of choice hit on many of 2019's biggest denim trends, including a flared, high-waisted silhouette that harks back on the '70s and a light, faded wash that feels slightly more casual-cool than its dark-hued cousin. As such, it's easy to see why she's reached for them a number of times throughout the month of May.
Collins has rocked her vintage flares on three separate occasions this month. She first stepped out wearing them on May 9, teaming the jeans with a cozy knit sweater to combat L.A.'s chilly springtime temps, a green cargo coat, and comfy slip-on sneakers.
She sported the same pair again on May 16, styling the jeans with a white tee, a mustard-yellow wrap coat, and light-brown sock booties. And if the past is any indication, it's likely you'll spot Collins in the same style in the coming weeks.
The iconic 7 for All Mankind has been changing the denim game since it debuted in 2000, thanks its innovative use of fabrics, fit, and finishes. Now, the brand's jeans have earned a cult-like following, with celebs like Selena Gomez, Emma Stone, and Jennifer Lawrence wearing them nonstop. It's safe to say this old-school denim label is here to stay for the long run.
Ahead, The Zoe Report handpicked the best styles to shop from the denim brand, including the pair Collins has worn on repeat in May.
