    15 Of The Best Jeans You Can Buy Online

    While matching sweatsuits and soft leggings had their 15 minutes of fashion fame during life in lockdown, jeans – also known as hard pants – are back, proving their sartorial resilience as a timeless closet staple. The classic garment is at the very the top of our shopping lists year-round, and we’ve got our eyes out for the best jeans for women right now to upgrade our existing collections.

    Of course, as far as denim is concerned, there are the heavy hitters (lookin’ at you, Levi’s) that are always a safe bet. But retailers like Everlane and Anthropologie have stepped up their game over the past few seasons, which means shoppers have more choice than ever before in the denim department. To help narrow down the search for the best pick of the bunch, we’ve sought the advice of shoppers who’ve doled out their stamps of approval in the form of stars and ratings. From a baggy Urban Outfitters pair with over 2,000 reviews to an under-$20 option that’s got shoppers racing to hit that “add to cart” button, we’ve rounded up 15 of the top-rated styles on the internet to get you closer to your perfect match.

    Classic Fit Olivia Sculpting Skinny Jean, $89.95

    The Hype: 4.3 out of 5 stars; 313 reviews on
    Best For: Skinny jeans

    We understand TikTok may have “killed” the skinny jean, but you can’t deny that the fitted style effortlessly elongates your legs and makes them appear miles long. (Fans of this snug fit will deny that the trend is actually over.) Eloquii customers count themselves among skinny-jean existing champions, especially when it comes to the brand’s best-selling Olivia silhouette. “Fabric is very good quality in my opinion. Generally, jeans with good stretch tend to be very thin fabric and break at the inner thighs in no time! I am super confident these ones will keep shape and all for a long time! Definitely recommend them,” writes one reviewer. “I have always had trouble finding jeans that fit me but not anymore! For reference: I’m 5′ 4″ and 265 lbs; I carry most of my weight in my belly and thighs but my waist is a bit smaller. So when I heard about Eloquii’s [jeans] I just had to try [them]. And I fell absolutely in LOVE!” another reviewer raves.


    Mid-Rise Flare Jeans, $49.99

    The Hype: 4.1 out of 5 stars; 195 reviews on

Wear it with a white T-shirt for a midday coffee trip or with a button-down and blazer for the office. “I’ve been trying on flared jeans from all sorts of brands and I just couldn’t find the right pair. That was until I tried these. They’re slim at the top and the pockets are flat so really flattering. They have a lovely flare- not ridiculous – and the length is great. I was willing to spend about three times the price so am super pleased. I’ve had lots of compliments and two friends have bought a pair! They wash well too,” writes one reviewer. Additionally, the style comes in three other versatile neutral shades that we wouldn’t blame you if you bought all four hues or matched in different tints with your friends. Trust us. You won’t want to skip out on these bottoms. “Absolutely adore these – so comfy, great fit and long in length. Looks great with my cowboy boots,” another reviewer shares.

    The Hype: 4.4 out of 5 stars; 1,363 reviews on
    Best For: Vintage-inspired style

    ICYMI: Abercrombie is having a moment. What’s more, they’ve got jeans inspired by the best shapes and silhouettes of the ’90s – a real golden era for denim. “When I tell you I have never had a pair of jeans fit me so perfectly, I’m not kidding. I have a smaller waist and wider hips, so it’s usually a one-or-the-other deal with jeans,” writes one reviewer. The bottoms hug in all the right places so perfectly that the reviewer is buying other washes in the same style.” If you’re a busy mom who always has a packed schedule, these early aughts denim could be your new go-to jeans: “Great fit.

    Best For: High-waisted style

    Elongate your legs with these ultra high-waisted, straight-legged jeans. Did we mention that it also comes in six additional colors? “These jeans are beautiful, I had been looking for a pair of really sturdy 98-100% cotton jeans because I hate jeggings or any jeans that have a stretch to them. … However, these jeans have honestly almost no stretch, and I can tell that they will last for a long time. I would definitely recommend these jeans to anyone that is looking for a good pair of sturdy jeans that complement any outfit,” writes one reviewer. “I really really like these jeans. They’re super soft and comfy and definitely have 90’s vibes. I ordered them in a size 4 which is larger than what I usually wear because I was afraid they would be too small, but I honestly wish I would have ordered them in a size 2 because they’re a little big. So I would say they’re true to size. I was really surprised [at] the quality of these jeans for the price and will definitely repurchase them in a smaller size and maybe additional colors.”


    Madewell Mid-Rise Perfect Vintage Jean, $128

    The Hype: 4.3 out of 5 stars; 88 reviews on
    Best For: Mid-rise style

If you’ve got a shorter torso, this 1/2″ mid-rise version of the style is the one for you. “Thank you for making these in a mid rise. This jean hits me perfectly now, where as before the regular vintage jean came up to my ribs. If you make them in other washes I will buy all of them! There is no extra fabric in the crotch like before in the original vintage jean. The back rise dips slightly in the back but it’s not a big deal. I am a size 6 and weigh 160 pounds and I’m 5’7″ (for reference). They are slightly snug at first but then become a little looser after wearing for a bit. Please please please make them in other washes,” one happy reviewer shares.

So the only thing that beats a classic pair from the brand is a pair that’s got lots of good reviews … to boot! (Sorry, had to.) “Bootcut is … more flattering on my body type than skinnies or straight leg. The stretch is adequate to make the jeans form-fitting and not uncomfortable at the waist.
