'I love the faded wash of these 501s – they're the perfect neutral to style with my everyday pieces for work and at the weekend. Adding a turn up makes them a bit more flattering with heels – I love how chic they look with these slingbacks.'

“I love the cropped 501s – I find them the most flattering for my 5’5 height. This darker-wash pair are such a staple in my wardrobe. For a failsafe outfit this spring, I’ve been wearing them with a breton top, textured cropped jacket and loafers.”

"I love styling up my jeans for summer evenings with a washed vintage tee and some cool accessories. I love the fit of these 90s-inspired 501s. I like a slightly longer leg length so a pointy heel can peek through. Some mega earrings and a bag to match complete the look."

"I'm obsessed with the way the 501s mould to your body – form-fitting in the places you want and slightly looser on the leg, they're the perfect straight jeans in my opinion. Plus, they're really flattering on your bum!"
