Georgia Pratt on Non-Stretch Denim for Every Body
“I think I’ve had quite a hard time at different phases in my life,” New Zealand model Georgia Pratt tells Vogue, looking back at her long history with denim.
“When I was in middle school, everyone was wearing a flared or boot-cut jean, and I never really liked how they looked on me, so I just stopped wearing jeans until the end of high school,” Pratt says. “I went through a phase in university, of wearing men’s jeans that were super big and baggy. And I still think I’m in that phase.”
Still, the Auckland-born model has newly discovered the beauty of rigid non-stretch jeans (particularly those cut from Cone Denim, the iconic American-made selvedge) that, when found in the right cut and tailored, flatter a wider-than-expected range of body types.
“I have a really good pair of light wash Levi’s men’s jeans that are straight cut from the hip down,” she says. Paired with a pretty printed peasant blouse, it becomes a clean and classic (and universally flattering) summer look.
Pratt lives in New York.
