The women’s Levi’s® 501® Jeans have always been about individuality. One could expect nothing less from the world’s original blue jean. It has always been a blank canvas for self-expression and originality, and wearers enjoy customizing fits to their liking. They love the signature details like the vintage look, button fly with branded metal shanks, and back waistband patch branded with the 501® lot number and our iconic Two Horse Pull. So rather than getting a new pair of slim or skinny jeans, many women chose to simply alter their 501®. That was our inspiration – enter the Levi’s® 501® Skinny Jeans.
The Levi’s® 501® Skinny is an iconic look, but re-interpreted for today. We took the world's most famous jean and customized it with a slimmer leg. It’s got that straight and easy fit through the hips and thighs, a slightly squared top block, and a super high rise (it’s got an extra button)! The leg is made narrowed for a skinnier silhouette and modern styling.
To keep the vintage style that made this fit great in the first place, we make this jean in a range of faded indigo blue washes, capturing the look our brand is known for. The range of women’s Levi’s® 501® Skinny Jeans also has plenty of destruction and repair-inspired detail you’ll love, for that well-worn, lived-in, tried-and-true look from day one. Think of them as jeans that are already broken in for you.
How can you style your new (or tried-and-true) pair of 501® Skinny Jeans? First of all, tuck in your shirt. This looks incredibly flattering with such a high-waisted silhouette, because it spotlights your curves. Whether you’re going casual or dressy, this is something you can always do, so try it out with an edgy tee, refined blouse, or even a sweater.
The leg is cropped to a perfect, versatile length – not too long, not too short. So it looks great with heeled boots or sneakers. It’ll work with some polished flats or leather lace-ups, too. You’ll enjoy tons of styling possibilities with the Levi’s® 501® Skinny. The trick is to get it in the right fabric for you. Whether you want a heavier, rigid non-stretch denim or something lightweight and stretchy, we’ve got it. Check to see if we have it in our Made & Crafted® collection, for a pair in premium selvedge denim with one-of-a-kind finishing.
The 501® has always evolved with the style of the times; this version is today’s chapter, and we consider it a new icon. Get a new pair of 501® jeans for women and make it uniquely yours.
