Normally when you think of premium denim jeans, you think of pricey brands you find in Nordstrom that are upwards of $200 a pair. Ridiculous for jeans, right? You’re probably thinking, “Gimme Old Navy jeans for $30 and I’m good to go!” And while I love Old Navy as much as the next girl, their jeans just don’t fit me right. I’m fairly average shaped falling somewhere between hourglass and pear shaped. I usually wear size 4 or 6 jeans (size 27), but despite how many different styles and sizes of $30 jeans I try on, none of them fit.
So lately, I’ve been trying more expensive brands of denim and finding that the fit is completely different. I never thought I would say this, but when it comes to jeans, you really do get what you pay for. Now you know I’m the first person to try to save you ladies some money and help you find the look for less, but cheap jeans don’t work for everyone.
The good news is, you don’t have to pay upwards of $200 to get premium denim anymore. Armani Exchange has just released a new line of premium denim jeans with prices start at only $98!
You can shop for jeans that fit your particular body shape! Choose from hourglass, rectangle (long & lean), or triangle (apple shaped). You then find jeans that will fit your particular body with no guess work involved. You can also shop by fit (skinny, straight leg, or boot cut) or you can even shop by wash.
I found a delicious pair of Boot Cut Jeans with wings printed on the back pockets. So cute! I also find a great pair of Grey Straight Leg Jeans that I think would look super cute with sandals.
And by now you know that distressed jeans are very much in style. If you’re looking for a great pair to wear this Summer, that aren’t too trendy, try these Destructed Skinny Leg Jeans. I’ve had a few people ask me what they should wear holey jeans with and the truth is you wear them just like you’d wear your regular jeans…
