Denim Guide: My Favorite Jeans In My Closet

Jeans have always been a staple to my personal style, I wear them nearly every day. Last year I shared my favorite and most worn jeans and decided the post was long overdue for an update. Today I'm sharing my current favorite denim jeans styles. From the best white jeans and the perfect black jeans, to my favorite skinnies and so much more. Let me know which is your favorite style or if you have any of these pairs already!

Editor Notes: I'm 5'10, 125 lbs, and my normal jean size is 25. 

Ripped Skinny Jeans

Ripped Skinny jeans are probably my most worn style of denim year after year. Below are my favorites of the moment. Technically two pairs have been favorites for at least a year now!

Levi's 501 Skinnies

  • High-rise, slim fit, 100% cotton, so comfortable
  • True to size (25) - they will fit tight at first, but they relax so much
  • These are my favorite pair of Levi's

Boyish The Billy Jeans

  • High-rise, form fitting, 100% cotton, comfortable all day
  • Fit true to size (25) - wash "easy rider"
  • I've had this pair for over a year so the holes in the knees are more ripped which I love

Straight Leg Jeans

I've become a fan of straight leg jeans more this past year. I find them so flattering, comfortable, and they work with all my favorite shoe styles. From cropped, ripped and non-ripped, below are my favorite straight leg jeans.

Ripped Boyfriend Jeans

I'm all for relaxed fit jeans, they are so comfortable and I love dressing them up with a t-shirt and heels. It's easy and effortless.

Black Jeans

After ripped blue jeans, black jeans make up a majority of my denim wardrobe. Most of my favorites I've had for years, which just proves their quality and longevity. Two of the pairs are from Everlane which is my favorite brand for under $100 jeans!

  • True to size (25) regular length
  • This pair has stayed true black after numerous washes and has yet to fade over years of wear

White Jeans

White jeans don't have to be tricky. For me, I'm not scared to wear them year-around. As far as silhouette goes, I really just need 2 pairs of white denim in my closet at all times. The perfect white skinny and a straight leg cropped fit. I find these are the silhouettes I wear most and look the best all year. Below are my favorite two pairs of white jeans and they are both under $100!

    Love the looks. How high up does your hem sit above your ankles?
