After too many months to count of wearing leggings, and, most days, choosing joggers when leggings felt too restrictive, we have proved to ourselves that, even in the name of fashion, comfort reigns supreme. Our leggings, joggers, and sweat shorts have been trusty companions over the last year but after being on high alert and on the grind for us work-from-home day after work-from-home day, we’re sending them on a bit of a vacation for a much-needed break. It’s not “goodbye,” it’s “you deserve some rest, I’ll see you in a bit.”

That being said, if you think we’re hopping into crusty, stiff denim as a substitute, you simply just don’t know us. We’re easing in and so we’re calling upon the most comfortable jeans we own. From flare-fit, to straight leg, to skinny, and beyond, we have all of our favorites lined up and on deck for the comfiest denim days of all time.


Abercrombie & Fitch

Ultra High Rise Flare Jeans

The flare jean trend isn't going anywhere anytime soon and if you haven't found a reason to hop on it yet, these ultra-comfortable, high-rise pair from A&F are the only incentive that you need. They'll make your peach look phenomenal and will be one of the comfiest pairs of pants that you'll ever own.


Classic Straight Jeans

These Madewell straight-leg jeans are one of the only pairs of jeans that we would ever consider sitting at a desk all day in. They're stretchy, hug us in all of the right places, and are so worth the investment. 

American Eagle

Ripped Mom Jean

These super affordable, stretchy mom jeans are almost too good to be true. They're softer than your typical, starchy denim and about as close to leggings (without actually being leggings) as we've ever experienced. If you don't already have a pair of these, you need to add them to your collection STAT.

Abercrombie & Fitch

Curve Love Ultra High Rise Ankle Straight Jeans

These ultra high-rise straight jeans are everything that we want in a piece of denim: they're flattering, stretchy, and durable no matter how many hours a day you're wearing them. That's right... no saggy denim or waistband at your knees by end-of-day here.


Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans

These AG skinny jeans are a bit of an investment but one that truly proves that you get what you pay for. These butter-soft jeans are super versatile, feel like a gentle hug on your legs, will last you a lifetime, and are worth every. single. penny.
