SHOP L148 DENIM
1. THE watts
Relaxed meets refined in the WATTS—a mid-rise jean with a slightly looser straight cut that tapers through the ankle. “I call it the ‘cool girl’ jean because it’s great for layering” says Flannery. “I love layering denim-on-denim, especially in this versatile medium blue wash.”
2. THE WYTHE
The Wythe is a relaxed, straight leg jean with a high rise and workwear-inspired pockets. “With a little bit of a looser fit, those patch pockets and a light stone wash, this is a great weekend jean and perfect for travel,” Petra says.
3. THE WYCKOFF
HIGH RISE/WIDE LEG
The Wyckoff Jean is a favorite for its modern proportions with a waist-sculpting high rise and statement-making wide leg. In a rich, medium blue wash, it’s equally versatile for day and night. “This pair is a little more fashion forward with that structured wide leg,” Petra says. “Throw on a great little heel to play up the elongated style.”
4. THE WYCKOFF Crop
HIGH RISE/WIDE LEG
A crisp white wash and above-the-ankle crop combine in this warm-weather update to the Wyckoff Jean. Cut with the same high rise and wide leg as the full-length style, the reimagined fabric has a little extra stretch for ease. Flannery encourages playing up the tonal styling: “White denim-on-denim is great. I love accenting it with beige or oatmeal and adding some contrast with the shoe and accessories.”
5. THE REEVE
A waist-defining high rise and slim-straight leg make the REEVE Jean the everyday pair that every wardrobe needs. “This is a great fit for all shapes,” says Flannery. “You can dress it up for work with a classic button up and blazer or dress it down with an easy striped shirt and cuffed hems to show just a little peek of skin.”
6. THE MERCER
L148’s slimmest fit, the MERCER is a heritage style that’s precision-cut with a mid-rise and ultra-slim leg through the ankle. Infused with just the right amount of stretch for a sleek, body-skimming fit, the off black wash is hand-finished for subtle highs and lows. Petra’s styling tip: “When I work with dark denim, I like to do a monochromatic look.”
7. THE BEDFORD
MID RISE/ROUND LEG
Engineered for ease, the Bedford Jean is a mid-rise, straight fit with a bowed leg shape and ankle length. A hand-finished, light blue stone wash gives it a fashion-forward vintage look and soft feel. “The Bedford has a cool, sculptural shape and hits right above the ankle, so I love anchoring them with a chunky, lug sole boot and an accessory that pops,” Petra says. “Then keep the rest simple—a neutral sweater is the perfect complement.”
