With the plethora of denim brands on the market today, it can be a bit of a challenge to find jeans that are high-quality, on-trend without being too trendy, and flattering. It's a process of trial and error that can take years, which is why we're here to make finding denim easier for you by sharing what brands have worked for us. We Who What Wear editors are not the same—we wear different sizes, are tall and petite, and have mixed preferences on style and fit. But despite all that, there are specific denim brands we collectively love and have decided are the best of them all. As editors, we've been able to test out a variety of affordable and pricier options, and we have favorites from both.

Below, you'll find the best jeans to buy right now that'll work for any budget. Whether you're ready to invest in a high-end pair or on the hunt for under-$100 jeans, you'll want to keep scrolling.

Yusra Siddiqui is an editor who resides in New Jersey but bounces between the suburbs and NYC. (She's a Jersey girl at heart.) After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
