I have been seeing tons of pins on Pinterest recently about curated closets, and must have pieces. I thought it might be fun to share some of my wardrobe staples. Over the next few months I will be sharing pieces that I think everyone should have in their wardrobe. This week, we are talking about one of my favourite wardrobe staples- denim!

I think we can all agree that denim is a wardrobe must! I love that denim comes in so many different styles and washes! General rule, the darker the denim, the more 'formal' it is; I am seeing dark denim being worn in all kinds of office settings. Add a blazer, pair of heels, statement necklace and you will look at home in the boardroom- at least in a boardroom where the dress code is business casual.
Straight jeans, skinny jeans, and denim skirts are so versatile and can be worn in a variety of settings. I would live in boyfriend jeans if I could...so comfortable! Denim shorts are perfect for summer and jean jackets just scream cool girl.
When it comes to denim, I think it's a good idea to have a pair of black denim jeans and it's fun to own coloured denim. Mint denim is perfect for Spring! While you can buy worn denim, I prefer to buy darker wash denim and wear the heck out of the pieces until it gets faded and/or frayed naturally. I have a denim skirt that my mom is constantly telling me to throw out because it's so worn; it took me about two years to get it faded and worn- I won't part with it until there are holes!
Like most items in my wardrobe, denim can easily be transitioned from day to night, can be worn to the office, for date night, or on weekends with friends. Denim can be found at multiple price points, but I think denim is worth investing in; you'll wear it for years and it won't go out of style.
