Can you survive a month without wearing a pair of jeans? Uh, we don’t think so. The fact that denim pants can match whatever top you have in your wardrobe makes the thought of not putting them on a tough feat even just for a week. Whether you’re tall or short, plus size or slender, jeans are closet staples you can’t live without.
They are as versatile as classic white shirts and you can wear any casual combo regardless of the season — from sending you off to the supermarket aisles to exciting vacation spots with your best buds, rain or shine. It’s no wonder women around the world choose to own an average of eight pairs of jeans at a given time.
While trends in denim come and go, some pairs of jeans will be staples forever. No matter how the fashion industry promotes bell-bottoms or boyfriend jeans lately, must-haves like the straight leg and bootcut will always outlive them. So if you find yourself itching to splurge on denim trousers, just give in. Make sure your closet doesn’t run out of types that are considered classics. They’re also durable that they can last for years — some even for decades.
And even if you’re not really into wearing trousers, having these 10 essential styles in your closet will ensure that when you do skip the skirt, you’ll be comfortable looking fabulous.
