Like shoes and tubes of lipstick, you can never have enough pairs of jeans in your closet. Multiply this rule by a thousand if you're a mom because we desperately need quick, fuss-free dress options that are sturdy enough to hold up after a day of chasing our toddlers, but fashionable enough to look great when we finally venture out of the house for a much-needed cocktail.
But with so many styles of denim out there, it can become easy to get sucked into the vortex of super-trendy, over-the-top, or plain old unflattering jean items that no mom actually needs in her closet. Over the years, I'll admit I've accumulated more pairs of skinny, lime-green jeans with zippers in places zippers aren't needed than I care to admit. The moment I rid myself of these pieces, the better I felt!
Here are 3 kinds of jeans you absolutely need in your closet in order to look your best and 3 you can toss right in the trash.
