Wardrobe staples are the foundation of any outfit. As such, you should invest in pieces that are well made and will stand up to years of daily wear. This week’s upgrade: washed blue jeans. Unlike raw denim, washed jeans are a versatile staple that are easy to wear from day one. Dress them up or dress them down, they’re you go-to pair of pants no matter the occasion. Just make sure to invest in quality denim and reliable manufacturing — the premium is worth it in the long run.
