A lot of people struggle with whether or not to stretch their fashion budgets. According to the Internets fashion Bible aka WhoWhatWear, there are six key pieces that are worth saving for and they include: a great handbag, two beautiful pairs of shoes, a trench coat, a fitted blazer, a piece of meaningful jewelry and an LBD. True, these are things you should invest in, but here, its halfway through Spring and we don’t really need coats & blazers. But the one main component they forgot to mention was denim. High quality denim can be nearly indestructible and will give your closet life over and over.
Reasons to Splurge on Premium Denim:
Sustainablity: There are many environmentally conscious techniques used to create premium denim, these include non-toxic material use, how things are disposed afterwards, etc.
Origin: Where they are made (which can tack on to the overall cost) is also important. I love supporting Companies that manufacture here in the States whenever I can.
Construction: Buying denim can be similar to buying bedsheets. The higher the thread count, the softer the texture and the better the wear.
Fabric: And most importantly, for the consumer, Premium denim is made of quality fabric blends. This ensures all of the above mentioned + a great fit for every body type. These types of denim can be found to have a high cotton percentage. About 95% and over. A high percentage of cotton will ensure the jeans won’t wear out and lose their shape.
All this to say that I recently got my hands on some SIWY denim. A company that needs no introduction, Manufactured and run here in LA, SIWY creates a beautifully constructed product that ensures sustainability and functionality. Not to mention, their long list of celebrity clientele.
When I finally got my shorts, I was taken back at how soft they were! The embossed detailing on the pockets is gorgeous and the patchwork is right on trend for this season. When I shop, I aim to put my purchases to work so I wear these shorts everywhere. No lie. My husband even asked me to wear something else recently. He’s jelly of my denim. 🙈
Here, I paired the shorts with a cheeky H&M tee and some Forever 21 slip-on’s. These SIWY Camilla Cut Off Shorts are sold out but you can shop my fave’s below!
I’ve been known to splurge on Wildfox denim Maison Scotch and Carmar jeans. I mean, It’s in the name. Mom JEANS & Mimosas. And if you know me, I love a good pair of
pants denim. These shorts will carry me through many summers to come. I highly recommend trying them and if you use my code “MOMJEANS” you can get $20 off. + they offer free shipping! What’s your go-to piece that you have recently splurged on?
