Go Ask Gab: My Inexpensive Jean Guide

June 8, 2010 at 3:55 pm , by

Whenever anyone asks me advice about jeans I always tell them that I have never bought a pair that were over $100. And it’s the truth. Although I live in jeans, I personally can’t justify paying a lot for them — shoes, on the other hand, are a different story! Here is the list of my favorite stores and my picks for their best jeans.

Mavi: Tons of styles and washes. Gab’s pick: I’m living in Serena skinny jeans. They’re super stretchy and comfortable.

Old Navy: All their denim is under $35. Great for the trendy styles that you can buy and not feel guilty when you don’t wear them next season. Gab’s pick: The distressed skinny — an update to the boyfriend jean craze of ’09.

Levi’s: The brand that invented jeans in 1873 continues to¬† make not only the basics but fashionable styles at amazing prices. Gab’s pick: Curvy straight leg is perfect for dressing up or dressing down.

American Eagle: The majority of their jeans are under $50 (most are under $40). Gab’s pick: White boy-fit jeans are a great addition to your wardrobe.

J.Crew: A tall friend of mine informed me that they are great for taller ladies. Gab’s pick: The white boot cut is narrower and classically chic.

Gap: Denim is what they do best. They also have petite and tall sizes. Gab’s pick: Light wash boot cut jeans are very flattering, and the lighter color is perfect for summer.

  1. Gorgeous jeans – I’m a big fan of the tight, cropped look (although since having kids they’re not quite sitting as well as they once did). Most of the brands you mention are unavailable here in the UK – which is massive shame. Most of the top brands like Henleys and Franklin and Marshall are readily available online, but at much higher prices than you guys pay over there. Another shame! :)
