    Must-Have #1: Medium-Wash Crop Skinny

    Consider this style your wear-with-everything jean, thanks to its ability to instantly make you feel effortless and casual. The best part is you can pair these jeans with everything from a ripped t-shirt and flat sandals to a silky blouse and high heels.

    Must-Have #2: Beat-Up Slouchy

    Our one piece of advice when it comes to boyfriend jeans is wear them often and always with ease and abandon.

    For this style, authenticity is key: faded washes, holes, and mending are beautiful bonuses.

    Must-Have #3: Clean, Dark Boot-Cut or Flare

    Sometimes, a crisp and flattering boot-cut or flare is exactly what your look needs. The success of the style lies with wash and fit. Choose a darker hue, with no overt pocket detailing or embellishments, that flares nicely over your preferred shoe height.

    Must-Have #4: Rinse-Wash Skinny

    This skinny jean serves as a simple foundation piece for work, weekend, and beyond. An ankle length is nice to showcase a little ballet flat or brightly colored heel.

    Must-Have #5: Jean Jacket

    A denim jacket is essential for adding a timeless casual layer to your year-round wardrobe. Whether you prefer a shrunken or slightly oversized fit, choose one that works well with an all-denim uniform and over a little ladylike dress.
