The Best Jeans Under $150

As a jean junkie, I tend to spend embarrassingly high digits on my denim. (I know I’m not alone!) But three pairs of affordable jeans later (thanks, Madewell, Everlane, H&M), and I’ve learned that good quality doesn’t need to come at a high price to look, feel, and fit great. An essential staple in our daily wardrobes, the perfect pair of jeans that's equal parts stylish, flattering, and affordable (and that doesn’t stretch or shrink in the wash) can sometimes feel impossible to find.

Luckily, we’ve done some of the hard work for you and rounded up the best affordable jean brands on the market right now. Some of these picks have been tried and tested by our editors (I own three), and others have been chosen for their positive ratings and high reviews. And while there’s nothing wrong with splurging on high-priced jeans now and then, rest assured you can still find chic denim at decent prices. Scroll through to see the best jeans under $150.
