Good old fashioned denim. It's been overtaken by leather, by faux leather, by patterns, by color, and by every other trend in the book.
Think about it, denim is the most versatile piece of clothing in your wardrobe. So whether you have a thousand pairs or one, let this post be a refresher and an homage to simple, perfect denim.
I have had these Citizens of Humanity black jeans for probably 5 years... might be time to replace them, but I can't help it, they are my favorite. They are comfortable, last forever, are super slimming, and go with everything. The best part - you can get away with them in a business casual work environment because they aren't traditional jeans and can pass as trousers. Citizens of Humanity "Avedon", $178.
Straight leg are wonderful - they offer the same slimming factors as a skinny, but they also elongate the legs and look amazing with a pair of pumps. This J Brand pair creates a perky backside too! J Brand 914 Straight Leg Jeans in Pure, $169.
Sometimes it's OK to wear something that's been around forever. These jeans are just that. Signature back flap pocket, traditional boot cut silhouette. I have worn mine so thin that there are holes in the knees, but they are still cute! Hudson Signature Flap Pocket , $192
When the world accepted skinnies with open arms back in 2005, who would have thought they were here to stay? The most versatile pair in your closet - if these Paige jeans ($158) are out of your price range, I also love these Levis ($78) and these ASOS ($49.83).
Nothing wrong with going back to basics. Denim might be, in fact, the perfect piece of clothing.
With most posts I try to assort with low, mid, and high price points. Denim that fits well and lasts is an investment. If you purchase 1 unbelievable pair a season it will be worth it, I promise.
Have a fun, fashionable day,
