The search for the perfect pair of jeans is not an easy one — there are SO many different options, and what works for one woman will certainly not work for all. However, a great pair of jeans is as essential to your wardrobe as a kickass turtleneck is to Diane Keaton’s.
We wear jeans to our office (and literally everywhere else), so we at The Everygirl consider ourselves to be jeans experts. Here, we’re sharing the jeans we can’t LIVE without — that we actually own, wear, and love.
I have two pairs of these jeans in black — which is necessary because I wear them almost EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. They're the most perfectly flattering level of high-rise — and they hug in all the right places!! I'm kind of between two sizes — I ordered the larger in both, and I'm glad I did.
I've had these jeans for YEARS — but thank goodness LOFT keeps making them, because I always get compliments on them. My roommate borrowed them so often that she finally just bought a pair of her own — and now she wear them as often as I do! They're the perfect "jean" color — a perfectly casual "I just threw these on!" look.
IMO, these are the PERFECT boyfriend jeans. They're comfortable in all the right places, but fitted and flattering at the same time. Whether it's weekend brunch or running errands, these are always my go-to jeans when I want to be comfortable, or look extra on-trend!
These jeans are EVERYTHING. They are cloud-from-heaven soft, reasonably priced (I got them on sale for $30-40 all the time), and the fit is perfection. Imagine me kissing the tips of my fingers rn, the fit is that. dang. good. They also wash well and last a decent amount of time considering I wear them practically every day. These are the SAME as Abigail's favorite skinny jeans — so are you buying them already or what?
I bought these on a whim before a summer trip — I needed light wash jeans that had a looser fit (hellooooo sweat) and a breezy vibe. Little did I know they would become one of the most complimented items of my entire oeuvre (which is mostly just jeans and tees anyway but whateva). The amount of times I have heard "girl THOSE JEANS" while wearing these jeans has really done wonders for my ego. Buy them!!
I'm over skinny jeans. (OK, let's be real here. I still wear them basically every other day.) My legs are constantly restricted, nothing ever fits my ankles (thanks mom for wide thighs and skinny ankles!), and the legs are never the right length. Enter the cropped flare jean. I decided to try these out during a crazy Old Navy denim sale, and now I wear them probably four times a week. My favorite way to pair them is with a white tee, fun earrings, and booties, however, they're so versatile and go with just about anything. These have the perfect amount of stretch (you can squat, but they're not falling off by the end of the day). They're so good and SO affordable.
I tried a bunch of different Good American jeans a few months ago and decided to pick these ones up, mostly based on how great they looked in the pictures. These jeans were a huge splurge for me (but I'll spend $60 on foundation, of course), so they basically had to be perfect if I was going to keep them in my wardrobe. Update: they are! They don't fade, even though I wear them constantly. These jeans are very stretchy, so I was somewhat wary that they would stretch out too much with wear. They have stayed exactly the same as the day I bought them. If you're on the fence about these, pick out a pair and try them at home with your favorite shoes and tops. That's how I know something looks good and fits into my wardrobe!
