When it comes to essentials, nothing tops the list quite like a great pair (or six) of denim. It’s the ultimate workhorse of my wardrobe which means I simply can’t have just one pair. My denim collection is an ever-changing lineup, with a variety of different styles and washes. While I do have my tried-and-true favorites (these!), the truth is I am always on the hunt for the next best pair (just ordered these) which means the rotation is always changing.
Below, you’ll find a look at my current lineup (in no specific order), which includes a mix of old favorites joined by a few newcomers like this wide-leg pair from The Great that is a perfect shade of cream.
If you aren’t familiar with my love affair for the Ribcage style from Levi’s then you must be new here. These oldies-but-goodies are for those of us who love a super high-rise and don’t care for stretch. Bonus: they’re under $125!
The perfect shade of not-quite-white to take me from spring to summer. These jeans are super comfortable, too.
These high-waisted jeans have been one of my most-worn pairs over the past few months. They are a go-to with heels – whether that’s a pair of boots or, moving ahead to warm weather, a high-heel sandal.
The newest brand to my denim collection is Slvrlake. I am on my second pair from the brand and totally obsessed. These jeans are a perfect not-to-cropped crop and the wash is just that ideal shade of medium blue. I have a feeling these will become one of my most-worn pairs of jeans.
My love affair for these jeans goes way back. If you’re a fan of a cropped style with little-to-no-stretch and a great high-rise waist then I think you might like these, too. Tip: I have noticed that the fit tends to be ever so slightly different with various washes so test out a few before making the final call.
These are the only denim shorts I own. My days of super-short shorts are long gone so the longer length of these is ideal. They’re also super comfortable and get better with every wash.
Khaite makes some of the best jeans out there. The fit is always right and – like magic – the more you wear them, the better they get. The Vivian style is one I reach for on both casual and dressy occasions. With a super high waist and an ever-so-slight flare at the ankle, these jeans are flattering and look good with pretty much any shoe.
‘Tis the season. The white jeans are out and they’re here to stay. This style from Frame is an old favorite of mine. They’re a flattering fit and I like the mini flare at the ankle. Most importantly, they are not see-through. Don’t you hate when your white denim is so thin that it almost feels like you’re wearing see-through pants? These aren’t that.
