These Iconic $80 Jeans Have Been My Go-To Pair For Over a Decade
I am of the mind that there are few things more demoralizing than trying on jeans. I would rather try on swimsuits, that's how much I detest the experience. So when I find a pair I like, I cling to them, wearing them over and over again until they can't even be cut into jean shorts (ed. note: don't cut your jeans into jean shorts). While denim trends have ebbed and flowed over the years, I'm always going to be partial to a high-rise skinny jean. To me, it's like a great white t-shirt or little black dress. It never goes out of style and works with pretty much any outfit. I'd say about 90 percent of the jeans I own are high-rise skinny jeans, and for years, I've known that I can rely on my go-to pair, the Gap High Rise True Skinny Jeans ($80).
Why do I love these jeans so much? They are lightweight, are easy to travel with, and fit super well. Plus, they're stretchy and really comfortable, but they don't feel like leggings. I am personally a fan of stretch jeans, but I've turned all my friends on to Gap jeans, and they love the more rigid styles, too. Plus, none of these pairs are over $80, which is a win for your wallet. These pants look like they should cost double, even triple the price, but we won't tell if you won't.
