This post has been a long time coming since you girls know I’m forever a denim girl over here! I have more pairs than I’d like to admit but even with all the pairs stacked in my closet, I still tend to reach for a handful of them over and over. I think I’ve tried just about every brand at this point so I figured I’d do a full DENIM REPORT and break down some go-to brands and pairs.
From mom duty to date night looks, I can usually elevate any pair I have and also keep them low key with sneakers or whatever. I’m all about comfort in my jeans though so you won’t find any on this list that isn’t comfy. I’m breaking down the list into Splurge Worth Pairs (pricey but worth it if you’re wearing them as often as I do) and Budget-friendly Brands (more realistic spending but nothing too cheap because I do find that quality tends to matter with denim).
Let me know if you girls have any questions on a specific fit or pair but you can also see how I style all my jeans right here.
Most Worn Under $100
When it comes to budget friendly quality, Levi’s is where it’s at. If you’ve followed along over the years then you’re no stranger to any of these pairs. They’re all under $100 and pretty much my mom life everyday go to’s. These Mile High Skinnies are the best high waist skinny pair (also have them in the dark wash option). This Pair and This Pair are probably my most worn everyday pairs bc they pair well with sneakers. Don’t forget to check out This Pair also around $100 and This Is The Perfect Pair for that classic faded vintage look.
There are a few brands that are pricey AF but when I tried them on I couldn’t send them back. Moussy, Re/Done, Mother and SLVRLake are the denim brands I invest in.
One of my go-to brands makes the best 90s style jeans – This Black Pair is a fave! They’re the pair I’m wearing in this post and love them so much I just ordered them in the light wash. They’re more of a “going out jean” vs a day to day but highly recommend!
These are damn pricey but for lux flairs, I love This Dark Wash Pair by Mother.
This is the pair to snatch up for Spring – they fit like a glove and your booty will never look better!
An investment for sure, but This Straight Leg Pair is the perfect wash and fit. Reach for them constantly!
If you’re into that acid wash look you have to check out This Pair by Slvrlake.
Another Pair by Mother – the booty looks so gooood in every style!
This Brand is a new one I discovered last year and was pleasantly surprised at the fit for the price point under $100. I have three pair from them now and definitely recommend. I tend to order up a size in this brand and wear a 26 instead of a 25.
