I have gotten several emails from readers asking me my favorite jeans. I have tried on many, many jeans. I know what I like and I know exactly how I want my jeans to fit.
A few musts for me: I prefer a darker wash, it is always more slimming in my opinion. I also prefer higher waisted jeans. After a baby the higher waist really just helps suck things in, so you have no over hang if you know what I mean. I am also a huge fan of skinny jeans. They are all I wear. I think they are the most versatile because they work with boots over them, with ballet flats or with heels. I also like my jeans to have a touch of stretch, not too much and not too little- it has to be the perfect amount. Not too much to ask for in a pair of jeans, right?
The four jeans below are my tried and true favorites. I own them all and I promise they are flattering. I know jeans are not cheap and I take jean buying very seriously. I wear mine for years before I buy new ones. These all wash and wear well.
I am not going to lie, I own two pairs of these because I am terrified one pair will be dirty and I will have nothing to wear. That is how much these rock. I bought one pair before I had Sterling and then after I picked up another pair to have a back-up. I get compliments everytime I wear these.
I used to be very loyal to my 7 jeans til my friend Katie introduced me to these. They are seriously the best fitting jeans. I swear they suck you in and make you look 5 lbs thinner easily. They are a dark Navy color but could almost pass for black. These are an everyday staple of mine.
I own these in Nude and love them. They sit high up and never really stretch out too much! The pockets on the front are sewn shut too which creates a sleeker and slimmer look.
They just came out in these two new colors for Fall and I really want the light green pair.
