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