While denim is known as a democratizing fabric worn by all genders and demographics, the industry itself skews male.
In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8, we’re highlighting some of the best women-led brands in denim. From Emma Grede and Khloe Kardashian’s figure-celebrating Good American jeans to Sarah Ahmed’s size inclusive Warp + Weft denim, these styles were crafted by some of the most powerful women in the business. Try some on for size and celebrate the women in your life.
Good American Good Vintage Twisted Seam Jeans
“Inspired by the babes of the ’70s,” these jeans are packed with fun details. Between the twisted seam, cropped leg and destroyed hem, all of the attention will be on your ankles. Play that up with a pair of your favorite strappy heels.
Good American Good Waist Crop Jeans
It’s hard not to feel fabulous in anything leopard print, and this is the perfect day to look the part. These printed skinny jeans have a high waist with super soft fabric to (comfortably) hug your every curve.
Warp + Weft ICN Wide Leg Jeans
Overturn the patriarchy in these punk-inspired cropped wide-leg jeans from Warp + Weft. Pair with a cropped denim jacket and white turtleneck to complete the grungy look—and remember that you’re wearing jeans from a women-led company.
Warp + Weft MXP Coated Jeans
Coated denim is a major trend this season, likely because of its instant confidence-boosting effects. This pair features a high waist and skinny fit with matte black accents. Pair with something as simple as a white T-shirt or as fancy as a structured blazer—these are versatile enough for anything.
DL1961 Evie Camisole Top
If you prefer to wear denim above your waist, this camisole from DL1961 is equal parts flirty and edgy. Pair with a maxi skirt to mix up textures and add a more feminine element to your look.
DL1961 Velma Long-Sleeve Romper
The utilitarian look has gained momentum in the past few fashion cycles. This white denim romper nails the look while also maintaining a girlish flair you’ll want to play up on this special day. Dress down with a pair of white slides or up with over-the-knee boots.
The Great Rider Jeans
The no-white-after-Labor-Day rule was meant to be broken—especially on International Women’s Day, when we celebrate female empowerment. Choose a pair of white kick flares like these from The Great.
The Great Sailor Jeans
Sailor jeans are a nostalgic style reminiscent of the ‘70s, when the women’s rights movement was in its prime. Channel that era and wear them proudly. Pair with ankle boots and a structured top to complete the look.
Paige Denim Cindy Jeans
A classic pair of high-waisted skinny jeans is always functional. This pair from Paige Denim features a destroyed hem and a mid-range indigo hue that perfectly complements a white T-shirt and a long, cozy cardigan.
Paige Denim High-Rise Edgemont Jeans
These high-waisted skinny jeans feature a double zipper at the waist for some added flair that make this much more than your standard blue jeans. Plus, the darkest blue wash adds a layer of edge that makes these a great choice for celebrating all of the great women of the world.
