Levi jeans. An American staple, the first Denim brand created and the love has yet to fade. Standing the test on the ever changing fashion times. The line keeps coming back with new styles , washes and fabrication blends. Even in it's recreation, it's a coveted must have item. As with the distressed denim addiction to snag a perfect Levi is a fashion win for every "It" Girl. Retailers are stocking their shelves with Levi's that have been re-done, creating more unique washing embellishments and to something old making it new all over again. The denim trend has been incorporated in some way during every fashion trend era. These times are no different as millennials become comfortable with classic fits and mom & dad jean styles. Levi is a "Go To" in achieving the look. Hunting through vintage shops and salvation armies? Pillaging through rummage sale hoping to score? Lucky for you, we found selections at Urban Outfitters! But believe me, it was no easy task. After over a week of running store to store, trying on fit after fit, 4 stores in 2 different states, trying on at least 50 jeans, we found 2 great fits with the wash and distressing we loved.

Here are some tips that will help you find the perfect Levi for you!

Fit: Located on the back tab of every Levi label is the fit number. Once you know your number, you have 50% of the task complete. As you know, with denim it's all about the fit. The link below will explain.

Wash: The wash-in denim can make or break your look. Choose wisely my friends... (hint: stonewash/ acid is not a fashion fave!)

Price points: Pricing really varies... I have seen ranges from $5.00 at a second hand shop to $200 at a luxury retailer. Base your shopping on your budget! How much do you want to spend on a pair of shorts? That question will be answered differently from someone in LA and someone in NY. But no need to panic! There will always be a way to achieve the perfect denim look within reasonable prices!
