We recently found ourselves ambling around the streets of NYC with nothing but an iPhone and our own eyeballs on hand to capture how the locals (and those visiting) work a pair of jeans. Turns out, that’s all you need. As the weather struggled to make up its mind (one minute so hot that I couldn’t distinguish my Glossier-induced dew from the sweat collecting on every surface of my face, the next going into battle against the elements armed only with a crappy convenience store-bought umbrella), the good people of NYC showed us how they werk their favourite pair of jeans.
If you’re a long-term follower, you’ll know that the pursuit of denim-centric outfits is one that we at COH take v. seriously. Imagine our delight then when we met the following five denim-clad women, each whose outfit had its own ~unique~ story to tell. If you’re into breathing life into your trusty favourites, then you’ll love what you’re about to read.
Get ready to see your jeans in a new light…

To make this jersey and jeans combo feel more ~you~ just pop on your favey accessories—which in this instance is a pair of block heels and a designer handbag. Now order those eggs in style, girl. (And send our sincerest apologies to your boo).
