Real talk: I own about 17 pairs of denim. And there’s signs of growth.

I definitely consider myself a denim lover. I own everything from $10 jeans to designer denim and love them all equally. There are so many things I love about denim and look for in denim. I love denim with sweaters (duh). I love denim with heels. I love denim with tucked in oxfords. I love denim with flats. You get the picture. I love denim!
I wanted to create a little “guide” for those who are looking for a certain type of denim but aren’t sure where to start!

The Skinny Jean
If I had to choose a pair of jeans to live in forever, it would be a skinny jean. This is probably the cut I own the most of. For whatever reason, I find these the most comfortable and most versatile of the denim fits. I love that you can wear skinny denim with flats, heels, booties, and really anything. My favorite jeans are between this Gap pair and this 7 For All Mankind pair. They’re both nearly identical and I’ve had both pairs for years (seriously since my junior year of college). I highly recommend them both! I also can’t discredit my Rag & Bone high waisted jeans. They’re SO comfortable and the high waist gives me a little bit of length.
The Boyfriend Jean
My first pair of boyfriend jeans were from American Eagle. I was a senior in high school and I thought I was SO cool. And then throughout the years, I’ve accumulated a few more pairs. My favorite, by far, is this pair. They’re so comfortable, so effortless and I wear them with everything from sneakers to heels.
The Destroyed (Skinny) Jean
There’s something so effortlessly cool about a pair of destroyed denim. I realized that most of my favorite boyfriend jeans are also destroyed, but I still think destroyed denim in other cuts deserves its own praise. When I bought this pair, I knew I was going to love them so much. I love how a pair of ripped jeans just gives off this “I really don’t care what I look like” vibe, even though you clearly do. Or like “I just rolled out of bed and threw this look together.” Even though you didn’t. I love wearing this kind of denim with an oversized t-shirt.
The Straight Leg
This might be my least worn of the bunch, but still love em. My most recent denim purchase was a more fun pair of denim. This raw hem pair is definitely on trend, but something I’ll wear for a while. I like that these are a bit more of a relaxed fit, and the raw hem looks fun with a pair of ballet flats. This pair (technically destroyed too) is also a great option if you are looking for a pair of designer denim.
For this particular look, I wanted to be super casual. I paired my new denim with a tie sleeve sweater (because I’m into those these days). I love wearing denim with flats when I have a million and one things to do. My Chanel flats have been my go-to shoe for everything. I know they’re a bit of a splurge, but they’re probably the most comfortable flat I’ve ever owned and obviously just a classic. If you’re not looking to make an investment right now, I found a great pair of dupes!
