Complete your denim wardrobe with these silhouettes.

Before we jump in, let’s just get this out of the way — you should always wear whatever you love. Because, really, your clothing should make you feel comfortable and happy.

But if you are looking to revamp or update your denim wardrobe, there are three silhouettes you should consider adding to your closet for a well-rounded, versatile selection.

Boyfriend jeans

You may already have a pair of baggy jeans, but consider investing in an updated pair that feels fashion-forward and cool. Because chances are you’ll end up wearing them every single weekend (and perhaps on casual Friday).

Look for a slimmer style, sometimes called “girlfriend” jeans or “skinny boyfriend” jeans, for more polish.

Hit a weekend shopping trip or Sunday brunch with friends in a pair of boyfriend jeans paired with a tee, moto jacket and ankle boots for a hip, modern look.

Dark skinny jeans

Every woman needs the perfect pair of skinny jeans in her arsenal. Try a sleek pair in a dark wash for a sophisticated, flattering finish.

If you think you can’t wear skinnies, think again. Today’s blousy tops and long-line blazers balance perfectly with slim jeans and create a flattering silhouette.

If you work in a more creative setting, a dark pair of skinnies with a blouse and booties or flats will pass muster at the office and will look casual-chic at dinner or on a date after work.

Wide-leg jeans

You should have fun with your style, and adding in a trend with some staying power is a great way to do that. For a very of-the-moment look, pick up a pair of wide-leg jeans.

A trouser style works at the office and, in warmer months, a wide-leg crop looks very modern.
