Jeans are always worth the investment, but what if they don't have to be one? With such a saturated denim market, it can be difficult to narrow down pairs that are worth it. My friend is desperately in need of new denim but doesn't want to spend too much, as she needs a few pairs. But if you grab a couple of affordable pairs from trusted retailers, you're guaranteed to find your holy-grail denimThere are so many trending styles currently for denim, including baggy jeans, straight-leg jeans, trouser jeans, and more. I shared with her my ideal formula–to pick up a mix of classic pairs and trendy pairs to balance your wardrobe. You may end up wearing a trend-forward pair as your go-to for years to come. But to make this possible, price point is extremely important. It's difficult to spend high on something that is more of a fad, so the 46 pairs of jeans below are all the under-$100 pairs I shared with her. Shop around and find your new favorite pair(s).
