Denim, it’s an absolute staple, and you can wear jeans just about anywhere these days. But, it’s important to have the right colors for the job. I don’t recommend all colors of denim for every occasion so you should not only know what 4 colors you need to have, but also the right and wrong times to wear them
The four colors of denim I recommend owning are dark indigo, a lighter wash of blue, grey and black.
If you own just one pair, a dark wash indigo is the one to own, so buy these first! It’s the most versatile and can be worn dressed up with something like a blazer and loafers or with everything casual like sneakers and a t-shirt. If you work in a business casual office dark indigo jeans are a great alternative to chinos on casual days.
Light Wash Blue
Not as versatile as a darker wash, I recommend a lighter blue for more casual situations. Be careful not to go too light on the wash as the very light shades tend to be a bit too trendy and can veer a bit too young.
While not as important as dark wash jeans, grey jeans can be quite versatile. Stick with a medium to darker grey wash and don’t be afraid to dress them up. Think of them kind of like a pair of grey chinos in terms of how and where you would wear them.
I love a good pair of black jeans and they’re almost as vital to your wardrobe as dark indigo jeans. They have a little bit of a rocker vibe to them and look great for nighttime occasions. You can never go wrong with a pair of black jeans, a white or grey shirt, and a pair of sneakers or boots.
