The best jeans for women are the ones you want to live in. Jeans that you can wear over and over again, that somehow get better every time you put them on. Styles that might involve a significant investment, but still represent a bargain in the cost-per-wear stakes.
If you’re on the hunt for new jeans, keep in mind that trends come and go, but classics are forever. Regardless of your preferred style or shopping habits, sticking to simple styles in vintage-inspired washes, with minimal (if any!) distress is the way to go for wearability. If you’re not sure where to start, here’s a list of must-have silhouettes every woman should have in her wardrobe. There are also pairs chosen specifically for those concerned about sustainability.
Dress them up or down depending on your mood. A pair of loose, soft jeans with a bit of stretch is one of the most comfortable ways to wear denim.
Baggy jeans are as comfortable as your yoga pants or leggings, but they look so much cooler. An easy decision for anyone secretly yearning for days of confinement spent living in loungewear.
Simple and just a bit vintage-inspired, classic straight leg jeans look great with everything from a blazer and heels to a tee.
Show off an ankle flash (and your new fall boots) in a pair of cropped flare jeans.
Bootcut jeans are on trend. Once a favorite of 2000s icons like Britney, Halle Berry and Jennifer Aniston, the divisive jean shape has received a refreshing update for 2021 – and hey, if Kate Moss is into it…
