At the heart of every capsule wardrobe collection is a pair of perfect jeans. If you think about your capsule wardrobe in layers, your denim should be your base layer. Most of our favorite outfits begin with slipping into a pair of well-fitting jeans. Shopping for denim feels especially personal, and because everyone has different criteria for what makes a pair of jeans "perfect," I asked each of the shop gals to share their favorite styles and why they love them.
Read on for our shop gals top denim recommendations.
"I have two denim styles that I swear by: Madewell Cali Demi-Boot Jeans and J Brand Jules High-Rise Jeans. I love how I feel every time I pull these jeans on. They truly hug my curves in all of the right places." - Laurie
"I am a denim enthusiast. I live for a denim-on-denim look. I tend to look for a jean that is 100% cotton with zero stretch. Right now, I've been cycling between these two Agolde Jeans that I love: 90's Mid Rise Loose Fit Jeans and The 90's Pinch Waist Jeans." - Sepi
"I think the perfect pair of denim end up being a style you'd be willing to buy in multiple colors. That is how I feel about Citizen of Humanity Emerson Boyfriend Jeans. I love the fit of these jeans; they're so comfortable and the slim boyfriend fit remains flattering without being too oversized. My favorite is this pair that are distressed. For a high rise fit, I love the Levi's Ribcage Jeans." - Michele
"When it comes to picking out the perfect jeans, I tend to lean towards classic silhouettes that are timeless and will outlive the current trends. The Madewell Classic Straight Jeans are honestly perfect. The fit is ideal and they come in all of your standard washes: the perfect shade of blue, classic black, and a crisp white that is perfect for spring or summer." - Andie
