I know a lot about denim. I worked for one of the top denim brands in the fashion industry. I can tell you about rivets, threads, denim care and much more. Yet, the one thing I just recently felt that was important to share is the need to have denim in a variety of washes, not fits.
I think it is important to show variety in your style but stay true to what looks good for you. First, find a style that works for you (skinny or slim is usually the most flattering) and then shop by that fit. This is where most people mess up, they shop by wash and then shop by fit. That’s the wrong way of doing it. You’ve got to get to know what looks good on your body and go from there.
Beyond that you can explore distressing, acid washes, etc. but for the sake of the post, let’s keep it basic. Here are the denim quantities and styles I have in my closet:
- 1 Pair of Black Coated Denim
- 2 Pairs of Basic Black Denim
- 1 Pair of Light Wash Denim
- 1 Pair of Medium Wash Denim
- I don’t have dark denim because I don’t like how it looks on me.
- 1 Pair of Distressed Denim
- 1 Good Medium Wash Denim Chambray Shirt
- 1 Good Medium Wash/Black Denim Jacket
