Life is complicated enough, so we welcome anything that keeps fashion simple yet chic. One very easy way to achieve that goal? Getting your denim wardrobe essentials in check, starting with these three styles every woman needs to own.
Black Ankle-Length Skinnies
These jeans fit in everywhere from a museum to a night out with the girls. They’re friends with every pair of shoes in your closet, including sky-high stilettos and well-loved Converse sneakers, so they look good with everything. Wear the same pair year-round—you’ll be able to show off your ankles when it’s warm or tuck them into a pair of boots during colder months.
Medium-Wash Boyfriend Jeans
These slouchy favorites are so comfortable they give your sweatpants a run for their money. You may prefer to wear them drinking Bloody Marys at Sunday brunch, but on a Friday night they can definitely look elevated with an awesome handbag and high-heel combination.
Dark High-Waisted Flares
Unless you’ve got model-long legs, you’re going to have to break out the heels to wear with these jeans. But it’s worth it: The retro style affords you a polished, slimmed-down silhouette as soon of you pull them on.
