I don’t know about you guys, but I pretty much live in jeans. In the winter I’ll sport some leggings, but about 97% of the time you’ll find me in jeans (except when I’m working. And that’s a whole other post.).
So I thought I would share 4 pairs of jeans I think every woman should have in their closet.
Honestly, you don’t need 15 pairs of jeans to have a good wardrobe. Just a few key styles and you can rock any outfit! I tend to build my day’s outfit around what jeans I feel like wearing that day. So for me having options is always important.
I know it’s summer, but I tend to wear jeans year round (especially living in Seattle).
Here is my list of basic jeans for your wardrobe.
1. Boyfriend jeans – I’d say about 50% of the time you’ll find me wearing my boyfriend jeans. I always cuff the bottom because I really like the look. I like a boyfriend jean that is a little slimmer through the leg and more fitted in the behind. (Pictured in the collage is THIS pair).
I have THIS pair from Kut from the Kloth and love them.
They also have a darker wash you can find HERE. And I love that you can dress them up and look so cute! I’ve seen so many women wear them with heels and a pretty blouse for a night out (I wear them a lot with my wedges). I think they are flattering on any woman and hide a lot of imperfections (amen!).
2. Dark skinny jeans – Dark skinny jeans are a must have in your closet. They are slimming on everyone and go with multiple styles of tops (tees, blouses, sweaters, etc.). And they can be work with almost any style of shoe. I love to cuff them too! If I’m not wearing my boyfriend jeans, you’ll most likely find me wearing my skinny jeans. I have THIS pair pictured in the collage and right now they’re under $30! That is just crazy! I had to go about 2 sizes down on them because they are pretty stretchy, but they maintain they’re shape really well.
THIS pair from rag & bone are fabulous. I’m really digging rag & bone jeans lately.
3. Colored jeans – I have only recently gotten into colored denim, and only white so far, but I’m loving it! Color is a fun way to change up your outfit a bit. You can find jeans in almost any color these days, but I have to say I’d stick with white, mint or possibly pale/pastel pink. White can go with almost anything, and mint or pink pair perfect with neutrals. I love the look of skinny white jeans and a boyfriend cardigan. That is definitely a go to outfit for me. I have THIS pair of white jeans (honestly, pay no attention to how Nordstrom styles their jeans. Sometimes I don’t know what they’re thinking.) and am contemplating THIS pair of mint jeans.
You know I love my Vigoss jeans and you seriously cannot beat the price.
4. Straight leg jeans – I love a good pair of straight leg jeans with heels or wedges. They look classy and really dress up an outfit. They have been my go to jeans for some time, and the pair I always choose when going out for dinner or drinks (because I’ll usually wear heels). They just pair so well with heels. I have THIS pair of Hudson jeans and also really like THIS pair.
Citizens were my go to jeans for years so I can attest to the quality. Love this wash as well. THIS pair is now under $100!
There are definitely other jean styles out there that folks may consider “must have.” I know a lot of women have jumped on the camo bandwagon, but to me those are a trend and not something I’d necessarily consider a closet staple.
I hope you found this post helpful, or at least informative. Do you have any must have jeans you wear all the time?
Have a great Wednesday!
Oh Tiffany…you’re going to make me go spend money when I can’t! All of those jeans are cute! I have so many old pairs in my closet that I should probably get rid of because they’re not in style but I keep thinking “what if they come back?!” Haha! I love my colored jeans 🙂 I have a pair in a turquoise-ish blue and a pair in mint (from Loft for $8!), oh and grey and I just bought black. Citizens and Paige have always been my go-to brands but these Nordstrom Juniors ones are so much cheaper…I need to go for those.
I lost my favorite Paige dark wash skinny jeans a couple years ago and am still mad about it. Haha. They were awesome! I bought another pair to replace them at Nordstrom Rack and they just aren’t the same. 🙁 I’m keeping all of these jeans in mind for future months! Thanks for sharing!
Considering I live in jeans too, you would think I know something about them but I don’t. This post was so helpful, not lying!!! Like I seriously have no idea how to wear them or what cuts look best with heels, etc. I need to invest in good jeans too, it would probably make a world of difference. ALSO I need to try boyfriend jeans. I like the picture that you linked to cause those looked super cute and comfy. Another thing we have in common, we’re jeans girls!!! I never feel as comfortable in anything as I do in jeans. And I live in AZ so you’d think I’d skip them in the summer but nope.
I live in jeans as well but skinny jeans… nah and those coloured jeans also look like a skinny cut. Boyfriend jeans and straight cut… two big thumbs up.
I really want a pair of white jeans but I’m not sure if I can pull off the look. I’m short and petite with big boobs (I remember when I used to want boobs. Now I look at them and wished I didn’t get so much of them). I always look bigger than I really am in pictures because of the hefty amount of cleavage I carry around. I digress… this isn’t about tops, it’s about pants and my short legs. Finding things that look good on me is so challenging.
Anyway… thanks for sharing these jeans. I would love to hear about your work clothes (with pictures of you in them)!!!
Wishing you a lovely day.
I’m definitely in the minority because I really don’t care for jeans. They always feel constricting to me for some reason. I like lightweight materials better. These jeans are all super cute though! It would help if I lost some weight, maybe my jeans would feel more comfortable. Lol!
