Instead of looking for a new cut or artful distressing to update your denim supply, take a look at a vintage wash re-emerging. Denim designers from Prada to Nasty Gal are taking it back to denim's roots with the true blue indigo washes of the '70s. This season's styles boast classic silhouettes, minimal detailing, and washes primed to take you from end of summer to fall. Paired with a strong color like red or even a basic white tee, you can't go wrong. From skinny jeans to the perfect denim skirt, we've selected our favorite picks to purchase now
