A pair of jeans for every month of the year

In my part of the world (Australia) it's getting mighty cold so the jeans are coming out and mine are being worn on high rotation.

Let's face it, you can never have too many pairs of jeans and we wear them all year round. They're definitely an investment piece if you opt for a more traditional look.

The trend pieces last a season (or two if you're lucky) and are something I recommend you spend a little less on because they're unlikely to be wardrobe main stayers.

Now there are that many stores stocking jeans and brands of denim out there that you can shop around to get the best feel, fit and style for your body.

They can of course be dressed up with a blazer or leather jacket and heels or boots, down with a cardigan or jumper and sneakers and in the warmer months with a singlet or t-shirt and sandals.

Now check out this jeans edit. Six brands and 12 different styles, with nothing over $220. Can anyone say spoilt for choice and friendly to the hip pocket!

We all know Levis are the jeans brand with a solid reputation that's gone the distance.

The 505 C jeans are the retro 90's mom jeans - loose and comfortable. The 501 CT jeans are more the classic fit with a mid rise waist and slim, straight cut.

Neon Hart is available from General Pants and the label is described as the "quintessential model off duty wardrobe" inspired by it models - think Kendall Jenner, Bella and Gigi Hadid.

The Patti range of jeans are high waisted jeans and a super skinny fit.

The culottes are a trend we've seen more of over the last couple of seasons and the Mink Pink offering is high waisted with a structured construction for a flattering fit. I love the frayed hems.

For something a little different, the silver eyelets on the other pair of Mink Pink non stretch denims definitely make a statement.

One Teaspoon definitely doesn't do things by halves and their hoodlum jeans with frayed hems are a "dose of deconstructed cool."

Is there such thing as showing too much knee when it comes to ripped jeans? One Teaspoon doesn't think so and describes these jeans as "ripped to perfection". They're high waisted with a skinny leg fit.

An affordable Aussie jeans label is Jeanswest and they do traditional, on trend and slightly left of centre quite nicely.

The goldie jeans are high waisted with a relaxed fit. I am really digging the different hem lines. What I'm also loving if you want to be a little bit daring are the contrasting colours in the clover panelled pair. They're 7/8th length, skinny jeans that sit on the hips.

One of the coolest brands out there for jeans is Maison Scotch. The La Parisienne instant love jeans are made from a velvet fabric in a washed blue look and are a super skinny fit.

I totally accept white jeans aren't for everyone but no jeans edit is complete without a pair. Maison Scotch's offering has a soft feel, stretch denim and are described as sculpting and flattering.
