You've probably spotted them on your favourite fashion blogs, off-duty models, and that girl at work whose style you really envy: we're talking vintage Levi's 501 jeans (vintage Calvin Klein, Pepe and Guess are on our radar too, FYI, but they're far more difficult to track down). Details to love: a high waist, non-cling factor (no stretch is crucial if you don't want skinny jeans knee-huggers), a wide leg below the knee (this is a step on from the tapered mom jeans of yore) and cropped to around ankle bone length (roll them up to the desired height). The best part? Vintage Levi's are super-affordable. ASOS Marketplace has a fine selection (we're keen on tracking down white pairs) as well as online vintage stores like Rokit (if you can't make the trek to Camden/Covent Garden/Brick Lane), the Depop app and eBay.
Here's a list of our favourite Marketplace boutiques, with some choice 501s:
