If you're anything like us, you've probably acquired quite the denim collection over the years. With each new season comes a new trend and a couple additions to your closet.  Whether you're doing a wardrobe overhaul or just need a little refresher, we've pulled together the five essential pieces that will give you an efficient and effective denim wardrobe. 

Rag & Bone Skinny Jean, AG Jeans Harper Straight Leg Jeans,
Frame Le Garçon, Frame Le High Flare
and Current/Elliott "The Snap" Jacket

The Skinny:

Although the trends may imply otherwise, the skinny jean is your number one denim essential. Wear it ankle length for a sophisticated and classic look that references the chic style of the 6o's. Although you can certainly sport the skinny in every color of the rainbow, a dark, denim rinse, with minimal distressing is clean and can easily be dressed up or down. 

The Cigarette:

A straight leg jean never goes out of style - just look at your dad's 501s. 

The Boyfriend:

There's nothing better than a pair of jeans that are so comfortable that you forget that you're in denim.  This cut isn't just for the weekend, a slim boyfriend style in a medium wash will be easy to wear with sneakers and a sweater but will also pair well with a crisp white shirt, stilettos and a statement necklace. 

The Flare:

A high-waist flare may be a bit out of your comfort zone, but believe us when we say it's a super flattering silhouette.  They accentuate your waist and bum all the while making your legs look a million miles long.

The Jacket:

A denim jacket is one of those pieces you'll pull out again and again.  It's a season-less staple that will take you from fall through the heat of summer. You can go oversized for this one, but we think a classic, slightly shrunken silhouette will give you the most longevity.
