The Best Jeans!

I’ve been dying to do a #MeghansMustHaves jean blog for a while now but my body has changed so much since the birth of the twins and I wasn’t “feeling it.”  I went through SO MANY jeans until I found my groove again.  I’m mainly a skinny jean girl and always need a high waist (to hold in my tummy and make me look and feel skinnier).

For a while I was purchasing jeans that wouldn’t break the bank and now that I’ve figured out what works the best I’m dipping back into the designer jean pool.  Here’s my list of my favorites and how they fit:

 

Dramatic Bells – $146

I love the way these fit!  The super flare makes you look curvy with a TINY waist and the high waist holds it all in and makes your legs look 20 miles high.  I wear these with flats or sneakers and for those of you who aren’t as tall as me I’d put them with clunky boots in the winter and wedges in the summer.

Long Sleeve White tee – $12

Round gold stud earrings – $4.00

Midnight Tried and True – $49

These Levi’s 721 high waist jeans are just THE BEST.  You get so much bang for your buck. They are comfortable and flattering and really should be a staple in your closet.  And the back pockets are quintessential Americana.  They are inexpensive enough to get dirty and expensive enough to wear and feel sexy.

These are the same Levi’s except in blue.  Get these too.  I’m telling you, these jeans are the bomb.

You Pay for The Holes – $35

 

Have you noticed that holey jeans always seem to be more expensive?  I can’t believe I found these for this great price.  Again, they are Levi’s!  America.

A friend of mine suggested I try Madewell and I’m so glad I did.  These are the jeans I throw on to run around town but they are fitted enough to look cute for a happy hour with friends.  A little more expensive but not bad.

Drop Lock and Crop It – $49

 

This is the perfect cropped jean at an awesome price.  I love J Crew and purchasing on Amazon is Amazon-azing.  I can’t wait to rock these during the spring with everything.  These are a midrise jean so it won’t hold in your entire midsection so dress accordingly.

Coat Me In Leather – $189

I love these Hudson jeans.  These are an elevated look – they look like shiny faux leather but they are soft and comfy.  You can actually cross your legs in these and not feel like you’re breaking ice between your knees (you know that feeling you get with super stiff jeans?  Say goodbye to that.)

My Fave Brand – $160

For years and years J Brand was my favorite jean brand and they are still one of the best which is why they are on this list!  They were stretchy before all jeans were stretchy so they are a step ahead of the game.  I’ll always have at least one pair of J Brand skinnies in my closet.

A VERY Honorable Mention:

Daily Ritual Midrise Jean – $39

 

The only reason I didn’t include this jean in my list is because it runs big and has been hard for me to find a size.  So down down at least one whole size!  Otherwise, this jean is fantastic and even comes in tall lengths!  And you can’t beat the price.
