Denim is one of those things where it is either hit or miss. When I was little, I wouldn’t wear any denim at all. My mom would have to get me cotton pants and shorts because I absolutely HATED the way denim felt. (Fun fact: I used to throw the biggest fits when my mom made me wear jeans;) I have come a long way since then and I have found denim that I actually prefer over leggings.
THE 2 DENIM BRANDS I WILL SPLURGE ON
As we all know, denim can be a little pricey! There has been times when I spend a lot on denim and end up not liking it. I don’t want that to happen to you, so I am going to tell you my absolute FAVORITE brands of denim to splurge on.
PAIGE DENIM – Paige denim is seriously amazing! I especially love their Transcend line which includes denim made of a super soft fabric. I kid you not I would rather wear these than leggings. Another thing I love about Paige is that they fit me perfectly. I have bigger hips and a bigger rump, but a small waist so finding jeans that fit is a challenge. With most denim I have the issue of it fitting my butt, but I have SO MUCH gapping at the waist. I haven’t had that issue with any of my jeans from Paige. Paige can be a little pricey (usually $160+), but if you catch them during a sale you can get them starting at about $70-$100. I like to stock up on their jeans during a sale to get the most bang for my buck!
RAG & BONE – I can’t get enough of Rag & Bone denim! It is typically a little more expensive than Paige denim, but it’s totally worth it! The fit of all their jeans is totally flattering. This brand is right up there with Paige in my book. Great quality, perfect fit every time, super duper soft and a little bit of stretch. Oh and guess what? My favorite pair from Rag & Bone is ON SALE for $150! It is the first pair below.
Both Paige and Rag & Bone can be shopped at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale which ends August 7th, so make sure to check it out!
MY FAVORITE DENIM STEAL
Okay, so maybe you can’t bring yourself to spend that much on a pair of jeans…. but don’t worry because I have a brand of denim that feels like it’s from an expensive designer without the designer price. It’s one of my best kept secrets!
ARTICLES OF SOCIETY – Have you heard of this brand before? If you haven’t I highly recommend checking them out! I told you, I am so picky about my denim and I’m usually spend a bit more to get the quality I like… but not in this case! These jeans start at about $50, but you can get them on sale for cheaper. They are totally worth the price too. For the most part, the sizing has been spot on. There has been a time or two where I couldn’t get the right fit, but overall I don’t usually have a problem. The only difference between these jeans and Rag & Bone and Paige is that these aren’t quite as soft. Don’t get me wrong, they are still super comfy… just not the same as the other 2 brands. Spending only $50 on a pair of jeans and getting almost the same quality as a pair of $180 jeans isn’t that bad of a deal to me!
