Considering there are literally millions of options for jeans online, it's safe to say that shopping for denim can be a daunting task. Then once I finally find a pair I want, I'm left wondering what size to order or what the fit is like. Rather than throw caution to the wind when deciding whether or not to check out my shopping cart, I've taken up consulting what I find to be a seriously underutilized resource: customer reviews.
I love scrolling through Nordstrom for jeans, and I've always found the site's customer reviews to be extremely honest and thorough. The four options below each had at least 10 ratings and all got four stars (out of five) or above. I've included styling options as well to make your life that much easier. So if you've been in the market for a new pair of denim and need a little community support, look no further. The people have spoken, and the options sure are sweet.
1. The Best '90s-Inspired Jeans
"I almost didn't want to write a review because they're always sold out, and I can barely get my hands on these, but these are truly the best jeans ever. Organic cotton and high quality." — Nordstrom reviewer
"I love these jeans. So cute and comfy and really flattering for mid-size bodies." — Nordstrom reviewer
2. The Best Cropped Straight-Leg Jeans
"All I can say is WOW. I am so impressed with these. I'm so sick of jeggings being called jeans. These have the old jeans stiffness I've been looking for while being so comfortable at the same time. I'm typically a size 4 in jeans (5'5", 135-140lbs, athletic build), and I have finally found a jean that fits my waist and my thighs. Highly recommend these!!!" — Nordstrom reviewer
"Love the Wedgie fit. They hug your waist and accentuate your curves! Little stiff at first, but they get comfy and not too loose later." — Nordstrom reviewer
3. The Best Boyfriend Jeans
4. The Best Flared Jeans
"Super comfy, perfect length (I'm 5'5'')." — Nordstrom reviewer
"These 'jeans' are my favorite to wear. I use quotes because they are so soft and stretchy, not like regular denim. I'm 5'4'', and the 25 are the perfect length with a little boot. I agree with other reviewers. They are not very high-waisted, which is a reason I like them. For $49, they are a must." — Nordstrom reviewer
