Confession: I’m addicted to buying jeans. They take up the most space in my wardrobe, and I wear them five out of seven days a week (I save two days for the other fashion treasures). Jeans are my weakness—from classic tapered styles, to trend-driven pieces, it’s easy to justify a reason to add one more pair. Blame it on fashion editors like Emmanuelle Alt, or Mira Duma—they’ve taught me countless ways to dress denim up or down, but still look effortlessly chic—I.e. my ultimate style goal.
My denim pile almost reaches the ceiling (I keep my jeans folded in a decorative stack next to my clothing rail), and would be significantly smaller if I was paying full price for my growing collection. My secret is to always snap them up on sale, and there are four websites that always have the best selections and discounts.

Farfetch combines over 400 boutiques from around the world, into one address. If I spot a pair of jeans online, I always go straight to Farfetch to see if it’s stocked. More often than not, I can find it here for less.
Make flared jeans work for work with a blazer and stilettos.
Some online stores take down their sale stock after a designated ‘sale period’ has ended, but Shopbop (thankfully) keeps its inventory available. The year-round sale section means I can always find something to satisfy my addiction.
A pair of dark, straight leg jeans is a wardrobe necessity.
While I LOVE ASOS jeans, I don’t always visit ASOS for its own label, but rather the huge selection of international brands it stocks. Brands like Blank NYC, M.i.H, Current/Elliot, and J Brand are often heavily discounted, meaning you can score a pair of celebrity-favourite jeans for a fraction of the price.
