It’s impossible to think about your go-to outfits without first envisioning the one staple that always has you (your legs, specifically) covered. And, like ice cream flavors or Netflix-binge shows, you have your favorite pair of jeans; the one that just always works. Sure, you’ll try a new style every season — like the latest take on distressing — but when it comes down to the pair you actually wear every weekend, you have your one. Everyone does.
To give you some insight into the ones we're seeing a lot of around R29 HQ, we polled our fashion team to get the scoop on the jeans they wouldn’t dare live without. (Like, wouldn’t even trade for a closetful of Chanel.) Ahead, eight brands that changed our lives, along with must-have styles to shop. You may just spot your favorite on the list or (gasp) get inspired to try something new. No pressure, just a few great picks if you feel like going that route.
