Jeans – Which is the best staple style?



What style of jeans is best? Silly question… I know!!! One must have an assortment in styles of denim. But nowadays there are so many styles to chose from….  low/mid/high rise, straight leg, skinny, boyfriend, distressed, colour, patterned, flared (yuck, yes i know they’re “in fashion” …supposedly).  Any who… it got me thinking… which are the styles that are most versatile? which styles are necessary staples?  and which are just horrible fads?

The reason I care so much about this question is that I am currently at work with a massive rip in my jeans (and not in a cute, “distressed denim” way), so I am on the hunt for some new jean-staples… here’s a little selection from shopbop that I have put together. Nothing revolutionary, but a simple visual list on what I consider to be the staples in the denim department.

Whats your favourite style of Jeans? What style would you never wear?
