A Dress Lovers Guide To Denim

It’s no secret that I’d rather be wearing a dress over jeans. We all have pieces that we feel the most comfortable in and for me, it’s always been dresses. But that isn’t to say that I never wear pants. I used to hate wearing jeans because I could never find ones that were both comfortable and fit me right, but over the past couple of years, I’ve figured out the styles, fits and brands that work best for me. I had a huge stack of denim in my closet and recently purged all the pairs that I don’t wear often, leaving me with a nice pile of ones I love.

What’s left in that stack of jeans you might be wondering? A nice mix of fits, lengths, washes and brands that I happily reach for when I’m getting ready in the morning. Here is a list of my remaining pairs that I truly love:

My Darkest Wash– This J.Crew pair is my ‘dark’ denim that I’ve had for years. The fit is really great and I love that they’re so simple and clean.

My Most Worn– I love Frame jeans and they’ve really become one of my go-to brands for denim. This pair in particular has been a favorite of mine for a few years and I still find myself wearing them as often (last seen here).

My Cropped White– I don’t think I’ve ever found a pair of white jeans that I truly loved until I tried on this Everlane pair. You’ve probably seen them on the blog before at least a few times like here, here and here.

My Slightly Distressed– In the past I’ve bought a few pairs of ripped-up boyfriend jeans, only to let them sit in my closet. I realized that while they look good on some people, I wasn’t one of them. Instead, I have this pair of slightly distressed jeans that I find extra flattering and fit my personal style much better.

My New Favorite– I love the wash of my newest pair of denim from J.Crew and have been wearing them a lot recently as seen in my daily looks here, here, here and here.
