The Best Denim For Your Personality

Share

No matter the time of year (and no matter the year), denim is in. Whether fashioned into a range of flattering jean silhouettes or imparting some nonchalance to a tailored dress, the sartorial staple is consistently reimagined season after season and never loses its cool. Most of us have at least one can’t-live-without piece, whether it leans toward polished or off-duty cool, but there are a zillion ways to incorporate the look into your wardrobe. To discover which iteration embraces your personal style, follow our guide to finding your true-blue match and our tips on how to style it.
