A New Breed of Vintagey-Cool Denim

For the past few months I've been craving nothing but dresses and more dresses—until I saw what our creative director, Andrea Linett, was wearing to work the other day. They were jeans, but completely unlike any denim I'd ever seen: grayish blue and railroad striped, subtly and appealingly dusty-looking. They were just a little bit high-waisted—but not in an exaggerated way—and fit tight at the hip but long and loose at the bottom, which is pretty much universally flattering. I assumed they were one of her vintage finds, a dead-stock limited-release pair of Levi's from the '70s maybe. But as it turns out, they're new, from Urban Outfitters, $68, and couldn't be more convenient to purchase.
