Have you been following my jeans try-on situation? Last month I shared a jeans try-on on Instagram stories, although I usually hate trying jeans on, this has been a surprisingly fun experiment trying out new brands and styles. I saved a highlight to my IG story in case you want to catch up. So far these are my top 3 favorite jeans I bought!

Gap High Rise Cheeky Straight Jeans with Washwell

I think these jeans are exactly what I’ve been looking for – comfortable, high-rise, and a straight leg that hits at the ankle. They have a button fly, are stiff with a hint of stretch, and fit me perfectly. They’re budget friendly at under $50, and I’ve been wearing them a few times a week. They are definitely a winner!

Citizens of Humanity Charlotte High Rise Straight Jeans

So many of you recommended I try these, and I can see why! When I first tried them on, I immediately said, “I think I found THE jeans.” They’re high-rise slim fit jeans with low stretch but still soft. This wash is perfect, the pockets look great, and I feel so good in them. They may be my favorite out of the whole bunch. They stretched out a bit after the first wear, so if you’re in between sizes, I recommend you go down a size.

Good American Good Legs Straight Leg Jeans

I’d never tried on a pair of Good American jeans before and was so impressed by how soft and stretchy they were! Very true to size in my experience. I feel like I’m wearing align leggings! Try these if you’re struggling to break away from skinny jeans but want something a little more straight. They’re tailored like skinny jeans, but there’s a little straightness at the ankle. Also love that they’re under $100!
