Jeans are a mainstay of my wardrobe, and unless it’s sweltering, they’ll be a starting point for most of my outfits. While I do have a lot of premium denim in my wardrobe, some of my recent favorites are more budget-friendly.
My Favorite Women’s Jeans Under $100
I find slim, straight cuts to be the most versatile, so all of these are variations on that theme.
I tried my first pair of these a few months ago, and really love them for everyday wear. They’re comfortable, flattering, and lightweight. These are the So Slimming Girlfriend Crops.
I have this style in both the “Hudson River Indigo” and “Baybridge Indigo.” I’m wearing Chico’s regular size 0 in both. If you are in between sizes or want a slimmer fit, I’d suggest sizing down. They do stretch out a little bit.
Both washes I’m wearing have some light distressing which I like, but there are several styles available (some in prints and colors) without any distressing.

Everlane Mid-Rise Skinny
Most Everlane pants and jeans are just little too high in the rise for me, but this mid-rise cut works well. I sized up to a 29 in this style. The ankle length is perfect.
Another favorite style, the J.Crew Vintage Straight jeans are now 40% off in some washes, which brings them in under $100! Use code BYESUMMER.
And one pair that’s just a little over $100…
If you prefer your denim on the more substantial side, you might like these Slim Boyfriend Jeans (gifted) from Mott & Bow. They have the look and feel of more “rigid” denim, but still have a little stretch. They’re offered in size 24-32, in 3 lengths. I’m wearing the 28/28.
Mott & Bow has kindly offered my readers 10% off with code Susan10!
(Their “Mom” jeans have the same cut but a higher rise. You can toggle between the two styles to see the difference.)
To help your jeans last longer, try to wash them as little as possible. If they get stretched out, you can put them in a dryer on low-to-medium heat for 5-10 minutes. And when you do wash, turn them inside out and use cold water.
