How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

Sure Elizabeth Barrett Browning probably wasn’t talking about denim when she wrote her acclaimed “Sonnet 43,” but there’s no telling she wasn’t either…

Much like relationships, trends come and go, but there are certain ones that will always be close to our heart (and perpetually in our closets). One of those trends is denim.

To show our affection for this Fashionista/o staple, here are eight reasons we love denim—now and always.

1. Denim is a never-fail, trusty go-to (aka your fashion BFF)



2. They are cool stepping aside and letting your assets shine.

3. Because when you put on the right pair of denim, you are instantly that much cooler by wearing them.

6. You can cut them, shred them, bedazzle them, bleach them and guess what—they will still be there for you.

7. Because at the end of the day, the right pair of denim invites you to just do you.
