What To Wear With Vintage Levis

Check out some summer styling ideas for vintage Levi's from local Austinite's in their new pairs of Dream Jeans!

The beauty of finding that perfect pair of vintage Levi's is feeling oh so confident in them!

When you find your perfect pair, here is what to wear with them: 

1. Look for lightweight knits that drape close to the body. Paper thin tees tucked in look effortless and still add a bit of sexiness.

2. Bodysuits of all kinds are a great option! They are no fuss and work great if you feel like you can never achieve that perfect t-shirt tuck. Look for unique vintage ones or check out American Apparel for some good basics - they even make t-shirt style bodysuits!

3. Elevate your overall look by adding a third piece to your outfit such as a drapey duster jacket or unbuttoned shirt over your bodysuit or tee. This look works great year around. In the summer pair with airy, sheer layers and in the fall looks for heavier, more rich fabrics.

How To Fit Vintage Levi's

Check out some of my favorite 501 inspiration photos and read below for tips on finding that perfect pair!

How To Find Your Magic Pair of Levis 501s:

1.  Vintage Levi's are 100% cotton - they tend to shrink over the years from all of the washing and drying. Your best bet is to go up 2"-3" from your normal waist size and start there. For example, if you wear a modern size 27, you might wear a tag size 30 in vintage Levi's. 

2.  Fit is everything - find a pair you especially love from the thigh up. The waist should fit nicely and your bum should look oh-so great. These two areas are most important to the overall look and are not the easiest or cheapest parts to change. 

3.  Your tailor is still your best friend! When you find that perfect pair, take them to the tailor to narrow the the thigh and leg area and/or shorten the hem. Trust me, this is the real magic behind the jeans. And as you break them in, they beautifully mold to your body and really do look and feel like second skin!
