Okay: so before you get hit by a big wave of fitting room freakout (we totally get it – trying on jeans is not exactly fun), don't panic! We're here to help you get through THE styles you need to know. Head right for these winners and get into a get-the-job-done vibe...
Super high-waist leggings $13
Skinny pencil jeans $X
First big hack? Start out armed and ready with the type of shoe you’ll mostly wear your jeans with. Night-out jeans? Take your heels in your bag, girl! Need everyday dark wash for throwing on with a biker and flats? Run into the store in sneaks, and stash pumps in a tote for a quick switch when trying hem lengths. You’ll be amazed how having a little "shoe-drobe" to play with can do for your jeans shopping mojo.
Forgot your footwear? Fueling up on an ice cold smoothie or coffee (extra shot!) is always a good idea. You may have to hop and jump around a little (but we promise it'll be worth it!)... (You’ve been warned!)
Blue denim jeggings $10
Super-stretch skinny jeans $X
Shhh! There’s a new black skinny in town...and it goes without saying, it has your name written into every perfectly-fitting seam. Gimme! Check out the super-stretch jet-black style, engineered to be the perfect balance of dressy-but-slightly-broken-in. Just remember to wash 'em inside out, OK?
Color skinny jeans $10
Extreme-rip skinny jeans $22
Blue more your thang? Slipping into finely-tuned pencil jeans is never a bad move; and probs the most flattering blue we've ever seen! Watch this mid-wash baby totally transform your collection of bombers, dressy tops, sweatshirts... pretty much anything!
Sateen skinny jeans $15
Body Curve skinny jeans $20
For a summer-through-fall piece, go for a gray wash. Wear with that billowy white embroidered top while it's still warm, and throw on an off-the-shoulder sweater in fall. Feel like a hit of color? Go for burgundy or nude – both pack a serious new-season punch. Last but not least, the sateen skinny: with its frayed hem and butt-lifting magic, it's just the thing to bring any denim queen’s stash bang up-to-date.
