My Top 9 Favorite Jeans In My Closet

Fashion Jackson Denim Jeans Master Guide

Recently, I've received so many requests for a guide to my favorite pairs of jeans and I was actually surprised that I hadn't already put something together! Since jeans are literally my favorite thing to wear, and a huge part of the Fashion Jackson brand, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to start a denim series! I'm thinking each month I can share the new styles I purchased, brands to try/not try, favorite styles for the season, and break it all down for you guys. So, today I'll kick it off with my top 9 favorites jeans in my closet (I know it sounds like a lot, but it was really hard to narrow).

Editor Notes: I'm 5'10, 125 lbs, and my normal jean size is 25. I've found that I always size down in Madewell, Frame, & most of the time Everlane.

Madewell Jeans

I have been wearing Madewell denim for years and they have become one of my favorite brands for jeans! They are pretty affordable, most under $140, and great for gals of all sizes. Most of their jeans come in sizes 23-37 and lengths in petite, regular, tall, and taller. I've honestly never met anyone who doesn't love Madewell denim!

Designer Jeans

A lot of you guys ask which brands are my favorite for designer denim. For me, its obviously about the fit and making sure the length works for my height. I always have the most luck with FRAME, Citizens of Humanity, AG, Mother Denim & Paige. I find most of these styles at Nordstrom, Shopbop, & Bloomingdale's. This was a HARD category to narrow to my top 3 favorites, but I did it! I will note, that a few favorites from Mother Denim didn't make the post only because they are sold out. I'll keep looking for new styles to share with you!

Under $100

Besides this pair of Madewell denim I shared, these jeans are probably my top 3 favorites out of them all, and you can't beat the fact that they are all under $100! I've always been a huge fan of Topshop, Everlane, and Levi's for budget friendly denim and have multiple pairs of jeans from each brand.
