How to Shop for Jeans

Oh I love a good pair of jeans. Truly. I’m a jeans girl at my core. As much as I love playing dress up every now and then, nothing seems to beat a solid pair of jeans that you can wear for any occasion. Who’s with me? BUT, as much as I love a good pair of jeans, I feel like finding the perfect pair is hard. I’ve had my fair share of trial and error and while we all come in different shapes and sizes, I think I’ve found three brands that truly offer the best variety for all of us. And you know I couldn’t keep this to myself.

Check out some of my favorite places to shop for jeans along with a few tips and items I have my eye on or currently have in my closet!


Jessica introduced me to Madewell last year and they are now some of my favorite pairs I own. I’ll warn you, these are a little pricey (at least to me) but are so so worth it. Most pairs range from $90-$120. Again, to me, they are totally worth it and you only need a few pairs to complete your wardrobe. They offer a variety of styles from skinny to boyfriend to cropped and also have regular, petite, tall and curvy options which I love.

American Eagle

American Eagle is one of those brands that I loved shopping at in high school but then totally forgot about. Until recently. I popped in for shorts two seasons ago and now AE is my go-to for everything from boyfriend jeans and shorts to trendier white skinny jeans. They are affordable and offer great quality and my favorite part – they usually have some sort of sale or BOGO deal going on.


Topshop is definitely my go to for trendier jeans. The price point is great but I definitely would suggest to size up. I’m a little curvy and text to go between sizes so I always size up just to be comfortable. I usually by on Nordstrom but you might find even more in store or on their site!

    American Eagle is my go to, but honestly my new thing is going into thrift shops in ritzier areas of Manhattan and seeing what is available in my size. I got a pair of Citizens jeans for $15 that way that I more or less LIVE in!!

    I know not everyone has access to Manhattan closet cleanouts though 🙂
