While scrolling through TikTok one night, I came across a video of a woman showing off a new pair of jeans she'd just bought — which just so happened to be a dupe for a very expensive pair of jeans I'd been eyeing for the past few months. The dupe looked just as good as the original, and when I clicked the link and found they were from Target and on sale for $19, I was shocked. I saw that the jeans had more than 100 five-star reviews, so I added them to my cart immediately. Ever since I got them in the mail, I've been wearing Wild Fable's Super-High Rise Straight Jeans ($19, originally $22) nonstop.
This was the first pair of jeans I'd had ever purchased from Target, and although the reviews were glowing, I wasn't sure what to expect when I tried these on for the first time. Luckily for me, the reviews rang true. For me to truly fall in love with a pair of jeans, they need to check all my boxes — and these jeans definitely do. They're cute, comfortable, and high-waisted — an absolute must for me (sorry, low-rise jeans will never be back in style in my life). They have an on-trend straight leg, and they weren't too long or too short– they hit just below my ankle, which is exactly what I'd been looking for.
I've been wearing these jeans for a few weeks now, and my favorite thing about them is probably how versatile they are. I've been pairing them with just about everything in my closet, and they're a winner every single time — they go perfectly with my favorite Amazon bodysuits, and the darker wash makes them great for dressing up or down. One of my favorite ways to dress them up for a night out is to style them with a black blazer and my favorite Amazon heels. I've also been wearing them with my favorite dad sneakers when I need to pop out of the house to run errands.
When I say these jeans are comfortable, I mean it. I own a few pairs of jeans that I would not want to sit down in for a long period of time, but I've worn these jeans for a full day of working from home, and they've genuinely felt almost as comfortable as my favorite pair of yoga pants. A few reviewers mentioned that these jeans actually feel like jeggings because they're so comfortable, and I have to agree. These have become my go-to jeans for dinner dates — not only do they look amazing, but they're stretchy enough that I don't have to worry about them feeling too tight after I've eaten and there's a distressed version ($25) as well.
To keep my new favorite pair of jeans in tip-top shape, I've been washing them on cold and hanging them to dry. I've washed them a few times, and the color is just as vibrant as the day I got them; I also haven't had any issues with shrinking or pilling (one of my biggest pet peeves). Overall, I couldn't be happier with my purchase, and I know I'll be wearing these jeans nonstop in the months to come.
