How to Take Care of Your Denim

A good pair of jeans is the foundation for a winning wardrobe. And with denim itself being a major trend this season, knowing how to properly take care of your beloved jean pieces has never been more important! I did some research, asked around and gathered some important tips to help you ensure your favorite pair of jeans (or jacket or skirt or blouse) lasts forever!

1. Don’t Wash Your Denim!

To wash or not to wash, that really is the question. Washing your denim can destroy the fibers and kill that perfect wash you fell in love with when you bought your piece. The less often you wash your denim the better, but if you must, use a detergent specifically designed for jeans like this one or if you’re feeling fancy, this one! Turn your pieces inside out to preserve the color and wash in cold water. Then, lay flat to dry!

2. The Freezer Hack

So if you shouldn’t wash your denim pieces, what SHOULD you do? There are a few options but the most popular option is to freeze it! Literally, throw your denim piece in either in a plastic bag or by itself and leave it in the freezer! Leaving your denim in the freezer overnight helps kill bad odors making your pieces fresh and clean the next morning. If all else fails, use a steamer!

3. Saggy No More 

Sometimes, with jeans especially, denim has a tendency to stretch out and lose its shape. You know what I’m talking about. When you’ve been wearing your jeans around for hours and suddenly at the end of the day they’re all stretched out? Don’t fret: all you have to do is turn them inside out and throw them in the dryer for about 20 minutes to bring them back to life!

Do you guys have any denim care hacks that you swear by? Let me know in the comments below and have a great day! Also, be sure to check throughout the post to shop some of my favorite denim pieces for the season!

Dear Santa

Allen and I were talking to Chloe about what she wants to ask Santa for Christmas and it occurred to me how much my "Christmas Wish-List" would have changed since the last time I sent a letter to the North Pole.
