One of my most frequently asked questions is about jeans! What are my favorite brands, what size do I wear, what styles do I love, etc. I tend to buy the same brands and styles over and over again so at this point I feel like I know what works best for my body type. I am typically a size 27/4 in denim but more comfortable in a 28/6 right now, I carry a lot of weight in my thighs (they are very muscular for my short frame) and I’m 5’4″. I’m drawn to an ankle length skinny/straight jean because it usually elongates my legs a bit by showing some skin on my ankle. I keep trying to make mom jeans work but they are just too overwhelming on my short frame. Since they are wider it kind of makes my entire leg look as wide as my thighs which is not a good thing. As I’ve gotten older I’ve realized that it is better to accentuate my curves rather than hide them under baggier styles. Anyways, here are my favorite denim brands and why:

  1. Frame: My favorite style is the Le High (I have them in the skinny and straight!). I love that they have stretch but not so much that they get super stretched out after one wear. Their darker washes are my favorite and hold up well in the wash!
  2. Madewell: The best quality denim I’ve found at a good price! They have a lot of stretch which I love for days when I don’t feel my best. I will say that sometimes I think too much stretch causes the denim to lose it’s color after a few washes but still worth it in my opinion. Current favorites here and here
  3. Rag & Bone: The first skinny jean I ever loved was this pair and it is still one of my absolute favorites. I buy a new pair every year! The perfect amount of stretch but they suck you in, too!
  4. DL1961: I love the Emma Legging jeans! They are super flattering and another pair that I feel like really sucks me in. My favorite black pair of all time is here. I also highly recommend their maternity jeans!!
  5. Abercrombie & Fitch: Another great brand for those on a budget! Their high rise skinny jeans fit like a glove.
