Unlike cupcakes and shoulder pads, there are two things that will never go out of style: the color black and denim. Although once seen as casual pants (and before that, as durable pants for men workin’ in the fields), jeans have become a staple in today’s fashion world. Because of this, women today can no longer survive with just two or three pairs of jeans. Oh no, we need a special pair of jeans for every (and I mean every) occasion.
1. Fat jeans
These jeans are great for a lazy day, but they’re even better for throwing on after a king-sized feast (i.e. Thanksgiving). Usually a size too big and made with “stretchy” material, you can always count on these jeans to fit you, even when nothing else does.
2. Comfy jeans
No, not Pajama Jeans (even though I am considering snagging a few pairs of those), but close. This pair manages to be just as (if not, more) comfortable than your sweatpants. Maybe it’s because they’re worn down or maybe it’s because they’re labeled as “relaxed fit”; either way, you feel great in ’em and probably wear them a little too often.
3. Old jeans
Saggy knees, a few holes in a variety of places (like where your thighs rub together), torn to shreds on the bottom from dragging them along the street over the years, these jeans have definitely seen better days. That doesn’t stop you from wearing them, though, and try as you might, you just can’t bear to part with them.
4. Skinny jeans
The last thing a girl needs is for her bootcuts to get all bunched in her boots. Enter: the skinny jean.
5. Skinny jeans
Remember that time you gave up everything besides lettuce and water for Lent? Yeah, you also bought these jeans to celebrate your little weight loss achievement. Unfortunately, they’re so tiny that you only fit into them for a few days (if that) per year. Keeping them on the first hanger in your closet provides some good workout motivation, though.
6. Going-out jeans
You look hot in these jeans and you know you do. They fit snug as a bug in a rug and, damn, your butt looks good. They may not be the most comfortable things on earth (as in, you have to lay down on your bed to zip ’em up), but that’s the price you pay for lookin’ hot.
7. Jeans for heels
Because god forbid the tops of your feet show in those new 4inch platform pumps.
8. Jeans for flats
Because god forbid your jeans drag on the ground in those new sparkle Toms.
9. Casual jeans
Too light to wear out to the bar but too fitted to lounge around in, these are your go-to jeans for those in-between days. And while you’re most likely wearing them with flats, they should not be confused with your jeans for flats.
10. Trendy jeans
High waisted, wide legged, bright skinnies, trouser, boyfriend, distressed, jeggings, cropped…. The trends are always changing and you gotta keep up.
Gosh, jean shopping is exhausting!
How many pairs of jeans do you have and which are your favorites?
