1. There Are Different Styles of Jeans

Ten years ago you were likely to find a much smaller selection of denim styles above a size 14. Now everything from pencil skinnies to wide leg skater jeans are available and it’s time to capitalize on the variety. Now if you are wondering what are the different styles of jeans you can incorporate in your wardrobe, here are our recommendations. Build your dream team first—four key pairs of great fitting denim. Start with two classic styles that always work like skinnies, bootcuts, or straight legs and round out your collection with two trendier styles. Distressed boyfriend jeans, wide leg skaters and flares are really having a moment.

2. Versatility In How To Wear Your Jeans

Having a collection of core denim gives you the freedom to get creative with your outfits for every occasion and location. Dark wash skinny jeans are great for casual workplaces. Style a pair of skinny jeans with a button down blouse or sweater and boots for a classic winter plus size high waisted jeans outfit. Swap out the boots for mules come spring and summer. Going for casually chic weekend style? Pair your light wash wide leg jeans with white skippies, a classic tee, layer with a denim jacket and your set for running errands at the local farmer’s market.

3. Extending The Life of Your Jeans

Having multiple pairs of denim actually contributes to the longevity of your pieces. If your jeans have ever rubbed out between the legs, then you know what I mean here. Rotating between a collection of core styles will cut down on weathering from washing and wearing. Pro Tip: challenge yourself to pick one wear a week and style it differently each day. It’s a fun #sustainability hack!
