Fact: Designer denim is an investment that can be entirely worth making if you have the funds. The craftsmanship and durability of a pair of designer jeans help to ensure that your favorite pair will be a closet mainstay for seasons to come. That being said, a pair of $200+ jeans isn’t always in the budget, and it might not be all that practical to splurge—especially if you're in the market for a trendier style. So we sourced a selection of more affordable denim options that rival your favorite designer versions.
