As a surprise to probably nobody, jeans are a very hot topic here at POPSUGAR HQ. Throw out a denim brand in a team meeting, and you’re bound to derail the agenda for at least 10 minutes. This happened recently in a room full of fashion editors, and there was one brand in particular that ruled the conversation: Agolde. The Los Angeles-based premium denim label is all about taking a contemporary approach to vintage styles — and that’s exactly why we love it. From a perfectly faded wash to a retro-inspired kick-flare silhouette, the styles ahead have reached cult-level status among our editors, and after reading their testimonials, you’ll see why.
