5. Grlfrnd Distressed Light-Wash Jeans

Everyone loves vintage-inspired denim with a modern twist, and that's why Grlfrnd's jeans are so beloved. They're sold at top retailers, but they always fly off the shelves. They're that coveted. Though the brand carries just about every wash and style, it's the faded, slightly distressed pick that we saw all over Instagram.

6. Calvin Klein Boyfriend Jeans

This one seems obvious. Calvin Klein has been another unbeatable leader in the denim market, and the brand's jeans have found their way into just about everyone's drawers. The timeless design and easy fit have earned them a cult following that won't slow down anytime soon.

7. DL1961 Wide-Leg Jeans

DL1961 is known for churning out premium denim pieces with the perfect fit. What's more, they're made out of ethically sourced cotton, making them the ideal pick for someone who wants to reduce their carbon footprint. They really are the perfect jeans, earning them a well-deserved cult following.

8. Agolde Colored Jeans

If you don't yet own a pair of Agolde's colored jeans, now's the time to scoop up a pair. Fans of the brand include Sofia Richie and Emma Roberts, plus countless street style stars.

9. Levi's Distressed Jeans

Just like Clavin Klein, Levi's has been a classic jean supplier for years—as in over 165 years. Cut from top-quality, stretchy denim, the brand's pants aren't only easy to wear, but they're also super comfortable. So it makes sense that all of the label's styles have earned a cult following.

10. Maison Margiela Wide-Leg Jeans

Maison Margiela wide-leg jeans, which have the perfect cutout detail along the pockets, instantly sell out after every restock. Though they've been on the market for quite some time now, their unique, timeless wash and cut keep people coming back. Everyone from Instagram fashion girls to celebrities has been wearing these.
