A true ’90s, no-stretch jean rarely comes in white, but Goldsign has answered our prayers. They’re slim on the leg and hit right above my ankle. Consider these to be a summer go to.

Flares are back, and we’re relying on Aritizia for a good cut. The Canadian brand recently relaunched their denim collection and it is a tall girl’s dream: this one has an insane 34″ inseam.

Dark gray jeans are underrated—everyone should give them a try. The waist on this pair is flattering and the ankle-length is perfection.
