Fall Denim Guide: My Denim Essentials

SAK.DENIMGUIDE.png

Happy Monday guys! Today, I’m kicking off my Fall Denim Guide! This entire week is all about denim – from my favorite denim pieces, finding the best jeans for your body type, to how to wear a Canadian Tuxedo without looking like…well like you’re wearing a Candian Tuxedo. So stay tuned and first up, let’s talk about why I love denim so darn much.

Denim has been a long standing staple in my closet. Although I’ve had my ups and downs with finding the perfect pair of jeans, (more on that this week) I’ve always loved the simplicity and versatility of denim. I started my denim obsession while thrifting. I found an amazing oversized Wrangler jacket, a too-cool-for-school vintage Calvin Klein vest and a handful of perfect high-waisted jeans. Unlike the (cheaper) trendy pieces hanging in my closet, I can wear denim on repeat without the wear and tear, or people noticing I’m wearing the same jeans 3 days in a row (Been there. Done that. Not ashamed).

I remember in Fourth Grade I really wanted a pair of these flare jeans from Mervyn’s (RIP) that had stars stitched all over the pants in various thread colors. My mom was hesitant to buy them for me because I couldn’t get a lot of use out them, but I insisted that they were the coolest thing I could have that school year. True, I looked super fly in those star jeans; but one week when I wore them twice, my friend totally called me out for being a denim repeater. Ugh! From that day forward, I learned to stick with the classics. I do have a few trendy denim pieces that have patchwork, embroidery or distressed – but overall, I stick with the classic denim pieces!

My favorite denim essentials that I believe should be in everyone’s closets are:

  • Denim Jacket
  • Medium/Dark Wash everyday skinny/straight pair of jeans
  • Special occasion denim (i.e. flare jeans, cropped, embroidered)
  • Chambray Shirt
  • Statement Denim (i.e. dress, coat, shirt)

With these staple essentials, you can pretty much work an entire wardrobe around it! I personally incorporate denim into a majority of my looks each week, and below I have rounded up some of my favorite denim looks from the blog.
