Building a simple yet versatile wardrobe you love can be tough (a topic we'll save for another day), but in this wardrobe how many pairs of jeans does a woman need? I think a woman's lifestyle has an impact on that answer, is she allowed to wear denim to work? If not, then she is more likely to have more work appropriate dress pants in her closet than pairs of jeans for the weekend. It's widely said that the average woman does own seven pairs of jeans. Do you think this number is too high? Maybe too low? Just how many should a woman own? Well there isn't a right or wrong answer, but we can help you start a basic denim collection and help you decide if you want to grow it and how we think you should.
Let's start with the basic denim collection. I'm not going to talk about any cut or style specifically as everyone has their own preference when it comes to what compliments their body best. I believe that the three basics everyone should have are a black, blue and light blue jean. These three washes leave the door wide open to a versatile, creative and colorful wardrobe.
If three pairs of denim isn't enough for you, you might want to consider upgrading to what I'm calling the "Almost Average Collection". To mix it up a little, simply add a distressed jean like our Julia or Camille DMB, and a fun colored jean to really mix things up.
Still not enough for you? Well then maybe you fit the norm and want an average collection of seven pairs of jeans. After your three basic colors, distressed jeans and a colored one. I recommend adding a unique printed jean to your wardrobe like our Blossom print and a dark wash like our Medium Blue or Over Dye Blue.
More? Well someone certainly has an appetite for denim. Who can blame you though, denim is just so comfy. At this point you might want to consider adding an acid or bleach wash to the mix, I'm personally obsessed with the Rachel BLC right now. After that, I say it's time to add a little sparkle and get yourself a pair of embellished denim. I'd recommend an awesome pair of embellished jeans, but I can't just yet. 😉
Still not enough? Atta girl. You're truly a woman after our hearts. This is where things get more exciting and unique. Go ahead and grab a pair of patchwork denim like our Sienna or Elisa WBL. Be bold enough to pull off some metallic denim too. Experiment and have fun with that fabulous jean collection of yours.
