I Own 24 Pairs of Jeans, But I'd Make Room for Any of These

I have a confession: I'm a 25-year-old fashion editor, and I'm addicted to jeans. (Phew, there, I said it.) I didn't think my denim collection was anything out of the norm until recently when I hired a stylist to help me gut my closet and in the process came to the realization that my current jean stack clocks in at an impressive 24 pairs. While I love each and every one of them, it's hard for me not to fall in love with a new pair that hits on a denim category I don't own yet—and feel the need to add it to my closet ASAP.

While I have the basics covered—straight-leg, skinnies, classic blue, white—there are endless subsections of jean fits, washes, and rises, which makes me feel that each pair checks a different box. So until l feel that my denim collection has checked enough (or all!) of these boxes, I'll probably keep adding to it at the risk of overloading my not-so-spacious closet. But hey, jeans are the bread and butter of my wardrobe, so I'm not really complaining. 

If you're looking for the coolest jeans to buy for the season ahead or simply want some denim inspiration like I always do, then keep scrolling to shop all the jeans that are making it really hard for me to wear or shop for anything else right now.

Next up, see every spring trend I'm shopping for and the exact items I'm buying to get each look.
