It's true: Jeans, much like a classic white tee, a good blazer, and comfy, versatile shoes, are the backbone of a well-rounded wardrobe. And though it can oftentimes be quite a hunt to find denim that checks all the boxes — aka, has a good price point, is made of top-quality materials, and of course, fits comfortably — the (long) search is worth it in the end. If you need a bit of guidance, though, you'll want to draw your attention to Lucy Hale's wide-leg jeans, which actually hail from the old-school denim brand that has a cult following in Hollywood. And when celebs can't stop shopping a label, it's very likely you'll become quite a fan, too.
A few days before jet-setting to the Big Apple to sit front row at New York Fashion Week (and at some of the biggest shows from industry icons like Jason Wu and Vera Wang, mind you), Hale was strolling around sunny L.A. with her adorable dog in tow. She stopped to get some lunch with friends but was presumably also running some last-minute NYFW errands.
The Sept. 6 outing called for a chill getup, something Hale has long mastered the art of piecing together. She donned a relaxed-fitting T-shirt from Re/Done, which she teamed with a pair of vintage-inspired wide-leg pants from 7 For All Mankind. The retro vibes the denim exude certainly makes them quite appealing, but the fact that they hail from the old-school brand that just about every A-lister shops for jeans skyrockets them to must-have status.
Other fans of 7 For All Mankind, which is the denim label practically every millennial grew up on, include Priyanka Chopra, who was spotting wearing a similar pair whilst running around NYC on Sept. 5, Lily Collins, and Emma Roberts, just to name a few.
Hale completed her pre-NYFW errand ensemble with Ulla Johnson slides, a brown leather box bag by Mehry Mu, and hexagon-shaped sunglasses from Storets (an affordable brand celebs love).
