As much as I love the idea of creating a capsule wardrobe, I simply know myself (and my total lack of self control) well enough at this stage to know that there is absolutely no possibility of this happening. But one thing that I am prepared to cut back on is jeans. I'm ashamed to admit that I have countless pairs of dark wash blue high waisted skinny jeans. And with the return of looser fitting jeans last year, I can see this collection multiplying in the next few months if I don't nip it in the bud immediately! I've managed to cut it down to these 5 pairs that I absolutely cannot live without, and the pairs that I feel you can dress up and dress down to make it perfectly wearable for any occasion.
I'm aware that Gen Z will have a bounty on my head for this one, but I think there's a lot to be said about the standard skinny fit jean. There's a reason that this style has had a hold on us for the past decade after all! As much as we love our relaxed loose fit jeans, there's something a little bit dressier about the skinny jean, making it the perfect option for a business casual look paired with a blazer!
Black jeans are SO under rated, and we're prepared to put an end to this in 2022! This immediately makes your outfit look that little bit dressier than a blue jean, not to mention the slimming effects of a darker colour. This one is a must have for office workers who want something a little more casual than a dress or trousers and still want to look perfectly professional.
Leathers are one of our absolute must have styles for nights out and are the perfect "jeans and a nice top style" for the simple fact that they add an element of drama and edge to any outfit. We love this style paired with a super feminine lacey top for a minimal effort maximum impact 'fit!
As a lifelong skinny jean wearer I never thought I would say this...but mom jeans have earned a special place in my heart, and in my wardrobe! This univerally flattering style is a must have if you're looking to venture into looser fitting jeans and is such a comfortable style! It's the perfect style for a relaxed weekend look that we're obsessed with right now!
Statement jeans don't get nearly enough love, and there's nothing more statement than this bright pink wide legged pair! This style is our go-to when we're looking to elongate the legs, while the design of the jeans with the fitted top that flares below the knee is super flattering as it highlights your curves while still giving you the comfort and street cred of that on-trend loose fit!
