In a world where over-$200 jeans have become commonplace, we wanted to point out the best of the really accessible brands. Don’t get me wrong, we’re happy to splurge on designer denim when the perfect pair comes along, but for now, the ones below can be your guilt-free holdover…or altogether substitute.
These bootcut jeans ($49 at Urban Outfitters) come in three washes, with a nice cut to for wearing with flats or stylish sneakers.
A pair of dark skinny jeans ($49.50 at Express) is indispensable for more casual evenings out, and you can easily tuck them into boots come fall.
Try out the boyfriend jean trend without the investment: Gap’s cropped pair ($59.50) has the worn-in look of much pricier jeans.
