With spring about to bloom and folks getting ready to emerge from the doldrums of winter, now might be a good time to peel off your sweats and give your wardrobe a light refresh. If the thought of pulling on a pair of old jeans sounds highly unappealing, consider a new pair (or two) from Everlane — like the ’90s cheeky style that’s one of the Strategist’s favorite things from the brand. Made from non-stretch Japanese denim and with a vintage-inspired look, straight leg and extra-high rise, we call it a “middle-of-the-road option between super-skinny and flared” — one that our senior writer Liza Corsillo personally loves. “I like that the waist actually hits me at my waist and curves in, so I never get that little gap in the back. I also love the length,” she wrote in 2019. According to Alysia Alex, associate director of career and professional development at the ArtCenter College of Design, the jeans “fit true to size in all the right places. They’re called cheeky for a reason.” Through April 2, Everlane is taking 25 percent off all denim on up to two pairs with code DENIM25FORALL, so you can try this style and another one while saving a few bucks — just in time for the pleasant weather ahead.
