Well, it’s about that time of year to stock up on jeans for the cooler temperatures ahead and I wanted to share some of my favorite denim styles from Shopbop with you! I did a similar roundup earlier in the year all about my favorite mom jeans – and those are still some of my favorites (you’ll see some overlap). But because the weather and temperatures are a little different here in Charleston, I feel like I’ve really narrowed down the styles that I like to wear. I also think that at this point in my life I’ve come to understand what works for my body more so I wanted to share 5 of my favorites jeans right now.
Agolde Riley High Rise Straight Crop Jeans in Zephyr
(wearing a 26, also pictured at the top of this post)
First up, Agolde Riley High Rise Straight Crop Jeans in Zephyr. There is a reason these have been in my top 5 HAF best sellers for 3 years in a row. I feel my best in these jeans. They suck you in at all the right places, are a lighter wash but not too light, they make your butt look amazing and I love the raw hem. I also own these in a 27 and truth be told I’m sort of in-between sizes right now. The 26 look better so I would say take your true size but just be aware that there is little stretch so you’ll have to wear them in a bit. These are my favorites.
*I quickly wanted to talk about stretch in denim vs. no stretch. I’ve decided I don’t like jeans with a lot of stretch. I don’t have the thighs that work well with spandex in denim. I don’t think it makes the quality of the denim look great, I tend to think stretch hugs every ripple in my legs and I just don’t really gravitate towards that anymore. So some of these do have a small amount of spandex (not these though), I’ve generally been drawn to a no stretch denim lately.
Wrangler High Rise Wide Leg Jeans
(wearing a 26)
These Wrangler High Rise Wide Leg Jeans maybe wouldn’t be a staple in my closet but I really love them. They are so flattering on the booty, are a trendier wide leg cropped style, I love the off-white colors and they and are only $108. Sizes are selling so fast so hop to it but I think this style is going to be really fun for fall!
Veronica Beard Arya Jeans with Elastic Waist
(wearing a 27)
Two words: elastic waist. I’m so sad this exact style sold out but hopefully they are restocked! But who knew elastic waist jeans would be such a wonderful addition to my closet. I have worn these so many times already. I did also order this style to see what it looks like, stay tuned. I love the wider leg.
Re/Done 70S Stove Pipe
(wearing a 27)
The Re/Done 70S Stove Pipe jeans. Another classic off white style that fits sooo well. I love the straight silhouette that gives your legs so much length. The quality of the denim is so good and it hugs you in in all the right places. I always size up in white denim because I never want them to hug my legs too tight. This style will be a staple for fall with cozy knits and stripes!
Agolde Riley Distressed Crop Jeans
(wearing a 26)
Ok if you own and love the Agolde Riley in Zephyr, then you need to try these Agolde Riley Distressed Crop Jeans! It’s interesting because sometimes the Riley styles all fit a little differently but these remind my so much of the Zephyr style with just a few differences. I love the distressed knees, high waist, straight style and cropped length. Distressed without feeling like a mess, you know?
Another all time favorite (that you can see in this post!) are my Citizens of Humanity Charlotte High Rise Straight Leg Jeans. I actually just ordered a replacement pair because I accidentally got them caught on a nail and they ripped. The denim quality and the fit on these are SO GOOD. That soft, lived in jean that feels like you’ve had forever. I also ordered these Agolde Mid Rise Loose Fit 90’s Jeans and I can’t wait for them to arrive! I originally ordered them in the 27 and love the fit but decided I need the 26. I’ll share with you when they arrive! I feel like that is all the denim I’ll need for fall and beyond!
I often get asked why I don’t own any Mother denim and personally I don’t think Mother looks great on me. I think Mother looks AMAZING on so much, but I have big hips and a muscular butt and thighs and Mother just hugs me in the wrong places. Again with my comment about stretch, Mother has too much stretch and I don’t think it serves me well. I do however love this Flower Power tee!!
