There’s nothing more classic than a great pair of jeans, a white tee, and some cute sandals. I am lucky to live in a place where summer evenings still get cool, so jeans are definitely in my summer rotation. (Just make them distressed and light-washed, please!) No one does amazing, light-wash, denim like Levi’s…no one!

My Go-To Jeans Right Now: Levi’s Wedgie Fit Straight

I’m super-picky about finding that perfect vintage-looking wash, and Levi’s just always get it right. AND we all know Levi’s are still offered at a fabulous price-point, under $100 for most pairs, AND they’re a sustainable company. It’s not surprising then that I keep returning to them again and again.

Vintage-Washed Levi’s, A Fresh White Tee & Cute Sandals, Please

The Wedgie fit Levi’s have been a team favorite for a while. It took me a bit to get used to 100% denim again, but after finding so many good pairs over the years, I’m now fully on board with this vintage style…but I still love the updated cuts with higher waists and crops— like these. Cropped jeans, for me, are a must in summer. The straight leg + the distressing + the crop helps keep me a little cooler than full-length skinny jeans. These feel more modern. Pair with my favorite summer-style tip, a knotted tee, cute sandals (ooh on sale here!), a fun bag, and voilà! Easy summer jeans look, done.

This is a little peek into what a photoshoot for me looks like right now. Trying to focus and getting photobombed by my child. Actually, this is what my whole life with this little one looks like. It’s Sienna’s world and we’re all just living in it. Send wine.

  1. I love these Levi’s posts, thank you. I just started getting into Levi’s and I will definitely check out this style.

  2. Try searching the “shut up” wash. It’s the only 100% cotton, light wash jean I found that didn’t have rips in knees (but there is a frayed hem).

    • Aren’t they great? I know Julieta has liked the Wedgie fit for a while. This is the first time I found the right pair for me and I think it’s the straighter leg I love!

  3. So, I’m kind of obsessed with this exact Levi fit and just wanted to pipe up for some of the above comments. Sometimes the wedgie straight fit has a 100% cotton fabric and sometimes it comes with some spandex – still usually a low percentage but it does make a difference. I’m very pear shaped so my size in the 100% cotton jeans is 2 sizes larger than the ones with spandex, though I suspect this differs if your butt and hips are more proportional to your waist. The color Laura linked has some spandex in it. Also, the wedgie straight fits differently that the wedgie fit (sometimes I see it listed as wedgie icon but I think it’s the same thing). Those jeans have more of a tapered silhouette. Someone mentioned the “shut up” wash and that one is offered in the wedgie fit, not the wedgie straight FYI. I have only found one 100% cotton wedgie straight blue jean without holes and that’s the wash called “montgomery baked”. Amazon currently has it in stock now. I have seen some in a black color but I don’t remember the name. Anyways, hope that helps.

    • THis is great information, thank you! Yes, I have found that Levi’s offers so many options it’s sometimes confusing! The exact ones I have on above are 100% cotton and yeah, definitely needed to go up 2 sizes, but agreed. The pairs with some spandex in them I only size up perhaps one size, or maybe stick TTS. Thanks so much for adding all your helpful info!
