There’s a reason jeans are a staple in everyone’s closet, no matter what their personal style is: you can dress them up or down, and they’re perfect for any occasion, whether you’re going to school, having dinner with your family, or shopping with friends (for more jeans of course!).
The one problem I do have with jeans is that, with so many cuts, styles and brands on the market, finding the perfect pair of jeans can be stressful and hard. Trust me, I’ve spent plenty of time trying to find the best options that look good, feel good, and fit my body just right.
My go-to skinny jeans are from Hollister, and in my opinion, you can never go wrong with them. I have a pair of jeans I bought from Hollister around four years ago, and I literally wore them last week. That’s only possible because the quality is so great, and you can count on them holding up after countless washes. Even better is the fact that Hollister jeans make almost everybody feel like the best version of themselves. I don’t know how, but they do. Seriously.
Obviously, once I discovered the AEO skinny jeans I became obsessed and started collecting as many pairs as possible. Lately, their ripped skinnys have become my staple jeans, and I love that the rips have continued to hold together without ripping even more (even if I wear them a few times a week).
I own at least six pairs, but this will obviously vary from person to person and body type to body type. I’ve certainly met a few boyfriend jeans (and boys in general) that I didn’t love.
The name of the Wedgie Fit jean may sound ridiculous, but they’re actually flattering. (And no, they won’t actually give you a wedgie.) They’re definitely more expensive than other pairs, but they are soooo worth it. Look at it like this: You can spend 100 bucks on one pair that will last 3-5 years, or you can buy a cheap pair that you have to keep replacing and end up spending twice that in the same amount of time. Levi’s LAST.
