A question we hear every day in Thyme Boutique is “What is the best denim for my wardrobe?” Hannah and Lindsay are here to help you figure that out.

Let’s talk wash…

Light wash: More casual than your traditional dark wash or black but just as versatile. What started out as a spring staple is now turning into a fall essential. Perfect for Free People dark chunky sweaters and Bed Stu rugged boots to add some dimension and personality to your look.

Distressed: From blown out knees to frayed bottoms. Elevate your every day look with a Z-Supply tee and an UGG sneaker.

Classic Dark: Deep, dark shades without the harsh boldness of black. A good wardrobe is built around a good classic dark jean. It’s an easy transitional jean, perfect for day to night. A crisp, white blouse or a pop of color with a Sanctuary top all brought together with an OTBT bootie.

Basic: A mid-wash jean with no frills. The jean that goes from Walmart pick-up line to lunch, and back to carpool. Layer this look up with your Dylan basic and a plaid shirt or a Barefoot Dreams.

Black: Black is the new…black. We are seeing black in two major ways, clean ultra-black as in the AG contour and distressed as in the Mother weathered ankle fray. Two jeans worn in two different ways. Pair your ultra-black with a Free People turtle neck sweater and UGG suede boot. Wear the distressed black with a Z-Supply pocket tee and popover and UGG wedged classic.

Now, there is rise: One of the most important aspects of getting the right fit in a jean is the rise. Low-rise, is a trend we will gladly leave in the early 2000s. Mid-rise and high-rise, however, have our full attention. Mid-rise jeans will hit closest to your natural waist, are flattering for nearly everybody type, and are perfect for day to day. High-rise jeans, take all the flattering aspects of a mid-rise and literally take it up a notch. High rise jeans, will hit anywhere from 2-3 inches above your natural waist and when paired with the right top will create the illusion of longer legs.

Really, no matter the wash or rise you’re wearing the jean, don’t let the jean wear you.
