These are six of my favorite jeans

I really, really love jeans. If you see me on any given day, I’m probably wearing jeans. And it’s definitely going to be one of these favorite jeans below.

Don’t get me wrong — I love my everyday leggings too, but if I’m wanting to feel pulled together, jeans are my go-to.

I’m sharing 6 of my favorite pairs of jeans today that are on constant repeat!

1. Good American Good Legs Jeans

  • wearing size 0 (I recommend sizing down)

I purchased these last summer and they have been on constant repeat. The Good American brand is particularly great for curvy women who have a smaller waist than hips, so if that’s your body type you must check these out!

If you sign up for their email list, you’ll get a 15% off code!

2. Everlane Original Cheeky Jean (color: sky blue)

  • wearing size 26 (fit is true to size for me, but I cut off the hem)

When I’m not in the mood for skinny jeans, these Everlane jeans are a great option. They’re a high rise fit, and a soft, lightweight denim. The length was a little funky on me, so I cut off the hem to give them a raw hem and a tiny bit shorter length and I love them 100x more now.

Use code MERRICK15 for 15% off (for new users only, but if you have an Everlane account already, just sign up with a new email address and the code will work).

3. Levi’s 501 Skinny Jeans

  • Wearing size 26 (fit is true to size for me)

Another pair of great light wash jeans. These are super flattering, but they are much more of a classic Levi’s denim where it’s thick and there’s very little stretch. I still stuck to my regular size and they fit great, but just a heads up that they won’t stretch and they are a little more restrictive.

4. Madewell Luner TENCEL skinny jeans

  • wearing size 26 (fit is true to size for me)

I’ve had these black Madewell jeans for 2 years and they are fantastic. They’re so soft, almost like leggings, and they haven’t faded AT ALL even after tons of washes. If you’re looking for a good pair of black skinny jeans, these are your jeans.

5. American Eagle Ne(x)t Level Jegging

  • wearing size 4R (fit is true to size for me)

I’ve had these jeans for 3 years and they’re still some of my all time favorites. The washes that they sell have changed over time, so the exact wash I’m wearing below is no longer available. But the style and fit is the same, and they come in a bunch of color options. American Eagle jeggings are so soft and so comfortable, and the ne(x)t level high rise style is my FAVORITE.

They also come in size 000 through size 24, and they’re available in multiple lengths.

6. Levi’s 721 High Rise Skinny Jeans

  • wearing size 26 (fit is true to size for me)

I own these Levi’s 721 jeans in multiple colors and they’re all so good. The white pair is particularly good because they’re not see through! But I also have them in blue and in black washes.

If you’re looking for a jean that’s not QUITE so fitted through the calves, but are still skinny, these are your jeans. They’re not the kind of jeans to tuck into socks or boots (because they’re not suctioned to your calves), but they’re great for wearing with lower cut boots, sneakers, heels, flats, and sandals.

SIZING: 

  • I typically wear a 26 in jeans.
  • I’m 5’6″ for height reference

wearing size 25 regular (size down one size – I normally wear a 26 in jeans, but always size down in Madewell jeans)

  • These Madewell jeans are thicker, sturdier material, with very little stretch.
  • They don’t sag or stretch out during the day, so you can wear them several times in between washes.
  • I love the wider leg with the high waist, and they’re a great longer cropped jean to wear in the winter when you want some more leg/ankle coverage.
  • SHOES I WEAR WITH THESE JEANS: I wear these with high top sneakers, low cut sneakers, flats, and chelsea boots.

2. KUT from the Kloth Meg Fab Ab High Waist Raw Hem Ankle Jeans

Wearing a size 2 – I’d recommend sizing down one size 

  • These are a recent purchase and an immediate love.
  • They’re incredibly soft and lightweight. Not a thick, sturdy denim, but not flimsy. They don’t sag or stretch out.
  • They run a little bit big — I’m actually going to try a size 0 because the 2 fits, but they are just slightly big in the waist.
  • These are the Ab-Fab style that has extra lining in the pockets/fly area for tummy control.
  • These are more of a mid rise.
  • SHOES I WEAR WITH THESE: chelsea boots, sneakers, high top sneakers, loafers, flats, heels

3. Everlane The Way-High Jean

wearing size 26, they’re true to size

  • I got these jeans in December and they immediately became a favorite. I’ve been wearing them constantly!
  • They’re a sturdy, but softer denim (not as stiff as the Madewell pair above or the Levi’s pair below). They don’t sag or stretch out in between washes.
  • They’re a very high rise, and my true size fits well in the waist.
  • They have a finished hem, but I bought the long length since my regular length was out of stock, so I chopped off the hems to be a little shorter. that’s why mine are raw hem and the link goes to a pair with a finished hem. But I promise they’re the same jeans!
  • SHOES I WEAR WITH THESE JEANS: Chelsea boots, high top sneakers, flats, low cut sneakers, and loafers.

wearing size 25, size down on size from your normal size

  • I got these jeans in a raw hem version a few years ago and loved them to death, so I was thrilled when a finished hem option came out.
  • They’re a standard kick crop style, and have a mid-high rise.
  • They’re stretchy and super comfortable, and don’t sag or stretch out in between washes and wears.
  • SHOES I WEAR WITH THESE: I wear these with chelsea boots, flats, loafers, low cut sneakers, and high top sneakers.

5. Faherty Stretch Terry Patch Pocket Pant

wearing size 26, these are true to size.

  • If you’re looking for the world’s softest jeans, these are them. They’re a terry fabric, so the denim literally feels like a sweatpant. They’re INCREDIBLE.
  • They’re a high rise cut, and a full length.
  • They don’t sag or stretch out in between washes, and hold their shape very nicely.
  • SHOES I WEAR WITH THEM: tan ankle boots (with a lower heel), Chelsea boots, loafers, flats, low cut sneakers.

6. Levi’s 501 Jeans in Tango Light 

wearing size 27 – size up one size, they have no stretch

  • I bought these jeans YEARS ago and they remain one of my all time favorites. I actually just bought the size up because lifting weights has changed my body shape a little and the old ones were a little too snug.
  • They have zero stretch, but they don’t sag or stretch out. They definitely soften as you wear them, but they don’t get saggy.
  • They’re a really good skinnier straight fit, so if you’re branching out from skinny jeans, these are a great option.
  • The light wash is really great for spring and summer!
  • SHOES I WEAR WITH THESE JEANS: I wear high top and low cut sneakers, chelsea boots, loafers, flats, and tan ankle boots.
