The Best Denim Brands to Know, According to Celebs

Like many things in life—ice cream flavors, Netflix shows, and so on—you have quite the selection when it comes to denim. You can either go for skinnies, wide leg, girlfriend, boyfriend, culottes, etc. Then there’s the variety of washes—in between dark and light, for example. Finally, the range of brands—so many to pick from. To be honest, we can’t really pick a favorite, but there are specific lines and styles some of our favorite fashion A-listers gravitate toward.

To fill you in and give you inspiration, we tapped celebrities Jamie Chung, Olivia Culpo, Jaime King, and Jessica Biel to spill on the denim labels that work best for them. FYI, we’re so on board with their picks—and many of our editors religiously wear these brands.

Keep scrolling to check out their answers and catch a glimpse of some gorgeous street style shots of each in cool denim. Plus, go a bit further to shop other jeans we’re loving right now.

“I love these Victoria Beckham culottes because you can dress them up or keep them casual. They are also really comfortable. Victoria Beckham clothing always features clean lines and is very tailored-looking, which I love.” — Olivia Culpo

On Jamie Chung: Maje Basalt Suede Biker Jacket ($606). 

“I am into the Levi’s boyfriend relaxed fit recently. I also like the really high-waisted skinny styles. I’d go for a really simple tank top and T-shirt and wear it casually with an espadrille or nice sandal or something. If I was going to dress it up, I’d wear a heel with a great blouse, something satiny, silky, or lace—more feminine on top.” — Jessica Biel

On Jessica Biel: Chanel flats.

"I love Hey Babe La for custom jackets—it's a brilliant young company that custom makes adult and kids jean jackets—they are AMAZING!!! My favorite jean is the H.S.S. Jean made by Juju Sorelli available here or at or at The Evil Hollywood Rock N' Roll Cat store in L.A. My other go-to is the Ali High Rise Skinny by Frame." — Jaime King



On Jaime King: Wolford bodysuit.

These jeans are actually two-tone if you turn to the side.

These look way more expensive than $40.

These would look so great with a crisp button-down and heels.
