We’re saying it: jeans are the holy grail of fashion. They go with literally everything (even dresses, if recent runways are anything to go by) and are just so damn comfortable. Whether it’s a high-waisted straight leg style that takes your fancy or fit-and-flare, ‘70s-inspired piece, jeans are likely a staple in your wardrobe already.
But as anyone who basically lives in jeans can attest, there’s much more to the sturdy style than just a pair of pants. Sort of like the comfort food of clothes, a great pair of jeans can instantly heighten your confidence, make you feel even more beautiful than you already are, and be the perfect antidote to outfit indecision. They also make a pretty darn good base for experimenting with other, more extravagant pieces.
Below, we’ve rounded up the 8 things that every jean loving girl knows to be true, from the versatility of ripped jeans to the perfection of coloured denim. Don’t pretend, you know you agree.
1. They are the perfect staple
No, really, jeans go with everything.
2. They can always do with a little bit of embellishment
Because personalisation is even more fun when it applies to your denim.
3. Even ripped jeans can be worn to work
When paired with a chic coat and worn on a Friday. Or a Wednesday, but who really notices?
4. Jeans can be SO much fun
Designers are embracing switching things up with jeans, so there’s really no excuse to buy more and more pairs, right? You know what they say: change is as good as a holiday.
5. Jeans can sometimes mean overalls
And overalls mean more fun.
6. They can be fancy, too
Chanel belt, anyone?
7. Or colourful!
Why not pink, blue or yellow?
8. But best of all, they can be all of the above in any season
Because they are just so versatile, there really are no rules with jeans — and that’s the best thing of all.
