Everyone knows that half the fun of London Fashion Week is not trend spotting the runways but the showgoers on the front row. The latest bag, the must-have shoes - it's the influencers that often highlight the real looks to covet. And this season the hottest style from those in the know was cheeringly affordable and surprisingly familiar: the humble Levi 501’s are back, but with a new sexy slouch.
We lost count of the fashion editors wearing them: Vogue's Laura Weir, Elle magazine's Donna Wallace and InStyle's Hannah Rochell were all spotted in the new customised and tapered (CT) fit. And we've since discovered it's not just the editors - celebrities such as Rita Ora and Solange Knowles have also been snapped in the workwear staple.
With all the hallmarks of our favourite classic 501’s, they're just that little bit cooler. The cut has been tweaked to sit lower on the hips, they have a more relaxed fit through the thighs and taper at the ankle so that they don’t bag when you roll them up.
