Staple Denim

Share |


There are definitely staples that we all need for our wardrobes—that classic white button-up blouse or a spectacularly fitting black tee—I am posting this blog to give you an idea of the (modern) classic pants that you should have (or need) in your wardrobe. 

Skinnies
A great pair of skinnies will take you a long way these days.  For any oversized or Dolman-sleeved top you may have (or want), skinny jeans are the perfect counterpart to their oversized, flowy nature.  This Skinny Ankle cut from Joe’s Jeans is absolutely my favorite jean to suggest to just about anyone who comes in because their fit is absolutely spot-on.

A Skinny or Straight Leg Dark-Wash Pant
I L-O-V-E a great pair of dark-washed premium denim.  A dark-wash will always keep you feeling and looking thinner.  With a pair of heels and a nice blouse, you can absolutely wear them from day to night or even to your workplace with a well fitting blazer.  The Twiggy Jean in 7887 by James Jeans is a classic dark-wash that features a great fit and contrast detailing.  Try them, believe me, you will love them!

A Pair of Black Denim or Tailored Pants
A pair of black pants are a seasonless addition to your wardrobe.  You can wear them to work or to an event and be happy with both of the results.  You can also wear a skinny pair with a fabulous tunic and have a more tailored impact.  The High Rise Legging Jean in Sebastian is a stretchy legging pant.

A Pair of Patterned Denim
A fun new classic is a pair of patterned denim.  Patterned pants are SO MUCH fun!  Seriously, you can add them to a plain top or to another patterned piece that is at a much larger or smaller scale, and you will have a totally unique look.  This pair of Twiggy Jeans in Kingpin Stripe from James Jeans is a great option because they are striped in navy and white, two neutrals that can be paired in any number of combinations!
