PINK’S PICKS: CURRENT FAVORITE DENIM

Does anyone else HATE the hunt for jeans?! Because, SAME! For the last 2 years, I have tried HUNDREDS of pairs of jeans, searching for the perfect fit, the perfect wash, and all around, the perfect pair worth the money. This post is sharing my recent FAVORITE denim finds, for any occasion that are on my current rotation. Even heading into summer, I am all about a good pair of jeans. Here are my current favorites, and I will include one pair that is on my wish list:

BEST EVERDAY DENIM:

The Agolde 90s PINCH WAIST

The Agolde 90s PINCH WAIST are my favorite pair of jeans for ANY look. They’re what I call a “classic” fit. They’re 100% cotton so not a ton of stretch but if you wear them in, they will quickly become your most grabbed pair. They’re truly the perfect fit. I am 5’4 and they hit right at my ankle which is perfect to wear them with heels, tennis shoes or any sandal. They feature a button fly and are the perfect high waist (but not TOO high). I have these in the “range” color but they come in almost every different wash. If you’re looking for a staple, every day pair of jeans you can dress up or down, this is my first recommendation. I get these in my true size and they fit perfectly (I am a 23).

BEST STRAIGHT LEG DENIM: 

The Agolde Riley Long

Everyone needs the perfect straight leg denim in their closet and my personal favorite is yet again, another pair by Agolde. The Riley Long has a more slim fit than the 90s Pinch Waist, making this pair a little more refined. It’s 88% cotton so again, more stiff but is SO easy to break-in. The best part of the cotton is the denim keeps it’s shape, and it’s more durable (that’s really the biggest difference between a stretch denim and cotton, the durability). The Riley Long also feature a button fly and comes in a wide array of colors. They also hit RIGHT at the ankle, and the quiver color wash is just beautiful. I get these in my true size and they fit perfectly (I am a 23).

BEST WIDE LEG DENIM:

Frame Le Jane Frayed Cropped High Rise Wide Leg

FRAME denim was actually a company founded by two Swedish entrepreneur’s, who decided to develop a brand to create elevated, well tailored and luxury clothing. And honestly, that is what they achieved with their denim. The Frame Le Jane jean is not for everyone, but if you want to spice up your wardrobe, a pair of wide leg jeans is the perfect, easy way to do so. These jeans are SO comfortable, you can feel how luxurious they are with each wear. The frayed bottom gives them a casual look that can be dressed up with a pair of heels or loafers. I also love the crop look with a sneaker. The light wash is perfect for summer or spring but I can also envision wearing them into fall with a boot. These are 77% cotton so have a bit more stretch than Agolde. I am truly obsessed and they run true to size! I can’t wait to try more of FRAME’s styles.

BEST DISTRESSED DENIM:

GRLFRIEND Karolina High Rise

If you’re a petite gal, GRLFRIEND is one of my favorite brands for jeans. They just fit really well. I like the Karolina high rise for the distressed look. This is not a pair I grab for the office, but for a more casual look, I do like a pair of denim with some distress. The high rise of this pair is a TRUE high rise. The holes don’t look or feel TOO much. It’s a classier type of distressed denim if you will. BUT the fit is just perfect. I grab for these almost every weekend for errands.

BEST AFFORDABLE DENIM: 

Abercrombie and Fitch

I know denim can be pricey, but if you’re looking for an affordable pair of great fitting jeans, I highly recommend Abercrombie & Fitch (still can’t get over their comeback lol). They have SO many different styles at a great price point. Plus, they always have sales. I have the 90s Straight (which fit similar to the Agolde 90s) and the High Rise 90s relaxed. I also love how inclusive they are of sizing. They have SO many style options and washes too!

WISHLIST DENIM:

Khaite The Danielle Jean

I’ve been eyeing Khaite denim for over a year now, specifically the Danielle Jean. The fit looks BEYOND flattering and whenever someone posts about them, they mention the high quality and perfect tailored feel. Of course, $400+ for jeans is INSANE. But I am keeping my eye on these because quality > quantity. Let me know if you’ve tried these and if they’re worth it!
