Wardrobe Essentials: Denim Jeans

Chapter 3

Let’s talk about one of the most practical pieces of clothing anyone can own, the humble denim jean. Started from working class roots that was made famous by Levi Strauss himself – the jean was built for labourers all the way back in the 1800s. Since then denim jeans have become the number one go to for every gender, class and age.

Changing styles often, denim jeans are an iconic part of each decade. If you think of the 70s you’ll think of bell bottoms, the 2000s will show you low rise and in modern times the mom jeans. Denim is one of the few clothing items that will always work for every body type, they are known to last the ages and become the most iconic piece in your wardrobe… which is great because we all know those trends that ended a few decades ago are coming back again in our lifetime!

Wide Leg

The top pick for a chic and classic look, the wide leg is an excellent investment for any age group. From baggy looking to form-fitting, they were the item to own in the 70s that never went out of style.

Straight Leg

Gen Z has truly rebirthed the love of the straight leg, a favourite for supermodels and IT girls alike. A revamp of the 90s trend, the straight leg is a body-positive refresh on the skinny jean trend of the 2000s. Straight-leg jeans are an excellent piece for day to night with no effort at all.

Skinny Jeans

THE jean most of us grew up with, the skinny jean is the most iconic piece of clothing from the 2000s. From emo bands to Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, skinny jeans were the only style of jeans people wanted and wore. Although Tiktok tells us this trend is dead, there’s nothing like feeling confident in your skinnies no matter what season.
