Pairs Jeans Women Fashion Cotton Denim Style

Have you ever wondered how many pairs of jeans you should own? A study found that the average woman owns seven pairs of denim. Seven! If you’re now using your fingers to count how many jeans are sitting in your closet, you’re not alone. Trends in denim may come and go, but some pairs of jeans will be staples forever. Don’t know where to start? We’ve rounded up our seven must-have styles to build a good base for any wardrobe.

When looking for denim, be sure to check the label for what percent cotton it is. Stretch jeans tend to have a high spandex content, which means that they tend to wear out and over-stretch as time goes on. For the perfect fit that lasts, make sure your jeans are at least 90% cotton. Not only will they look more like jeans and less like leggings, they’ll keep looking fresh and fabulous for years to come.

Whatever your personal preference is when it comes to your jeans, we think that building a classic-yet-trendy, staple denim wardrobe begins with these seven denim styles:
