My Favorite Pairs of Denim
Denim is the ultimate fashion staple and probably the most versatile piece to take you from day to night, business to casual and everything in-between. And while we all love a great pair of dark wash skinny jeans, there are so many options when it comes to denim. Here is my guide to all things blue jeans. Let me know below what are your favorite styles and brands to rock.
THE STYLE: Dark Wash Skinny Jeans
We all love skinny jeans. They just hold you in in all the right places and make everyone look taller and slimmer. What’s not to love? Plus they are ideal for wearing with boots, which is necessary especially in the winter. I definitely love a great light wash or a vintage blue wash, but to me the quintessential skinny jean is a dark wash with minimal distressing or fading. Favorite brands: rag & bone/JEAN, J Brand, Joe’s and Paige. Favorite styles: rag & bone/JEAN High Rise Ankle Skinny, rag & bone/JEAN Ankle Skinny, J Brand Maria High Rise Skinny.
THE STYLE: High Rise Straight Leg
There’s nothing better than that perfect pair of worn-in, relaxed fit, straight leg jeans. I get warm and fuzzy just thinking about it. They transition so well from day to night, business to casual and everything in between. I think these look killer with a blouse and heels for work, or a bodysuit and booties for a night out. I think the key to this style is getting the right fit. Basically you’re gonna need to start with the oh-my-god-I-can’t-breathe fit, and then once they break in they look and feel like heaven. Favorite brands: GRLFRND and AGOLDE. Favorite styles: GRLFRND Karolina High-Rise Skinny Jean in Tom Cat (pictured below), AGOLDE Riley High Rise Straight Crop Jeans (pictured below), Citizens of Humanity Liya High Rise Classic, GRLFRND Helena High-Rise Straight, rag & bone/JEAN Straight Jean, Topshop Straight Leg Jeans.
THE STYLE: Distressed Denim
From raw hems and ripped knees, to full on shredded legs, I’m all about a good pair of distressed jeans. Because I work in a corporate setting, I can’t wear anything with rips Monday-Friday (total bummer) so distressed denim has basically become my weekend uniform. Favorite brands: J Brand, rag & Bone/JEAN, One Teaspoon and AGOLDE. Favorite styles: J Brand Johnny Mid Rise Boyfit, rag & bone/JEAN Dre, One Teaspoon Awesome Baggies Jean, AGOLDE Jamie High Rise Straight.
THE STYLE: Black Skinny Jeans
When in doubt… black skinny jeans. Every time. I mean when I think about it, I probably wear my black skinny jeans more than anything else I own. They literally go with anything and everything, and work for business events, date nights, brunch, errands, etc. They’re a must. I like ones that are high waisted or slightly higher waisted and hit at the ankle. Favorite brands: Current Elliot, J Brand and rag & bone/JEAN. Favorite styles: Current/Elliott The High Waist Stiletto Jeans (pictured below), J Brand 620 Mid Rise Super Skinny, rag & bone/JEAN High Rise Skinny in black, rag & bone/JEAN High Rise Ankle Skinny.
