There's nothing worse than an ill-fitting pair of jeans, especially expensive ones. Nowadays, it feels like jeans prices are through the roof while the return on investment in terms of quality and comfort no longer exists. Personally, I've paid way too much for jeans that either pinch, squeeze, or suffocate me without flattering my figure or making me feel secure. While I've had my fair share of run-ins with luxury jeans over the years of being an editor, I have to admit that sometimes the jeans I constantly gravitate toward are some of the cheapest.

Whether it's by word-of-mouth recommendations from my friends, spending hours reading and watching reviews, or trying these jeans for myself, these 18 pairs of under-$75 jeans are some of the best on the market, hands down. Scroll to shop, and if you buy them all up, don't say I didn't warn you!
