First on the list are high-rise cropped/ankle jeans. A straight jean is universally flattering and leaves enough room for movement while slimming the legs. A cropped ankle length allows for easy pairing with mules, sandals, sneakers, and just about any type of shoe which makes these bottoms an essential style. Another option is to rock them in a full length or cuffed for a crop effect.

How wide and loose is completely up to you, but a great pair of looser-fit jeans will open endless styling possibilities which is key for a capsule wardrobe. A loose-fit jean is especially chic with a tailored or fitted top. We personally recommend a pair of wide-leg jeans in a mid-blue wash or in black. Pick a full-length slouchy piece for a more casual look, or cropped wide-leg jeans for a dash of business formal.
 


Dark Wash Skinny Jeans

When skinny jeans became the trendiest bottoms ever, I figured they would only last a few seasons but now they are considered classics! Even though we’ve ditched the skinny jeans this year (thank God), a high-quality pair of dark wash skinny jeans is a closet must-have. The style still remains versatile and a dark wash is classic for any occasion. You can also tuck these babies into knee-high boots for a super chic, modern look. A tip for building a capsule wardrobe: Avoid rips and distressing.

An American classic — the bootcut jeans. This is a pair that is surprisingly flattering on all body types with a cute flare that makes it versatile and stylish. Bootcut jeans may be dated to some but how you bring a dated piece to life is all in the styling. You’ll be glad you held onto this pair when it becomes the next big denim trend! Modernize a pair of bootcut jeans with statement tops and shoes. Accessorize with timeless gold jewelry.


Mom Jeans

Mom jeans, boyfriend jeans, girlfriend jeans… I’m sure we’ve seen these terms floating around but what are the differences and why are mom jeans an essential? The answer: it’s all in the fit. Mom jeans are high waisted making it very flattering for the bum. The relaxed fit is the perfect balance between a boyfriend jean and girlfriend jean with slight tapering through the leg. This 90’s style is effortless and an essential building block of a casual outfit.
