It’s pretty simple ~ jeans are a basic wardrobe staple. Except for those that refuse to wear jeans, everyone has at least one favorite go-to pair whether it’s worn-in skinnies or trendy boyfriend denims. It’s difficult to deny the highly versatile appeal of denim jeans as everyday wear, for almost every occasion including at the office.
I consider jeans the most important of all basics for my own personal wardrobe. I used to practically live in them and still wear them all the time. As I get older, my taste in jeans has evolved from heavily relying on skinny jeans to favoring more classic styles like wide-legs and boot cut jeans.
There are jeans that are meant to last only a season, and there are jeans which will last you for years to come. The quality and stitching of the fabric, the cut, the fit makes all the difference between average denim jeans to well crafted designer jeans. If you want the latter, I recommend stylish yet durable pairs from True Religion.
In regards to choosing a style that is best suited for work, I suggest bootcut jeans in dark wash. You can’t go wrong with the simple, comfortable and polished style of the bootcut. Shoe-skimming dark jeans create a clean, lean silhouette which will flatter your overall proportions. Also consider mid to high waist if you wish to shrink your hip area.
True Religion’s Becca Mid Rise Bootcut Jean is the perfect example of a flexible, wear-to-work pair. This modern bootcut flatters all figures in a smart, slimming silhouette. The subtle flare will help elongate your legs especially when worn with high heels or boots. Give denim the extra professional treatment with a button-down shirt and tailored blazer.
Looking for a more casual and comfortable pair? The Runway Leggings will give you the chic look of the skinnies ~ minus the zipper and the button closure! The pull on construction and the stretch knit fabric will give you the feel of your favorite yoga pants. Wear it with a blouse, cardigan and loafers for casual Fridays or shopping trips on weekends.
