Few things are as classic and versatile as denim. You can wear it a million different ways for almost any occasion, so whether it's in the form of jeans, a dress, or a jacket, you should definitely have denim in your wardrobe. If you need more convincing or want to feel better about the pair of jeans you just splurged on, here are the reasons why denim is the best:
1. It's iconic. Denim has had its moment for every generation.
2. It's trendy. So hot right now.
3. It's comfortable enough for casual days. And more socially acceptable than sweatpants.
4. But it can also be dressed up.
5. It still looks amazing when distressed. Unlike most of us.
6. It's quintessentially American.
7. But other countries love it too.
8. It's a classic. You can never go wrong with jeans and a white shirt.
9. You can wear it head to toe. There's even a name for it: Canadian Tuxedo (which further proves point No. 7).
10. It doesn't need to be washed that often. And by that often I mean almost never. But if you do decide to wash your jeans, be careful when putting them in the dryer because they WILL shrink.
With that said, every girl needs the denim basics below, so get to shopping:
