Most Affordable Skinny: Forever21 Skinny Pant

I power shopped my way through these, scooping up three pair in white. At $15.80, it's a good idea! Be warned - I sized down 2 sizes. These stretch like crazy.

Best Boyfriend Skinny: Paige Premium "Jimmy Jimmy Skinny"

I am not one for skinny jeans (or Paige, usually!) but these are great. I'd say they run a full size small, though Paige is usually more trim anyway. Highly recommend!

Best Specialized: Levi's® Curve ID


I recently became acquainted with the Levi's Curve and highly recommend it. With four variations, one of these specialized fits will likely make you feel like a million bucks.

Best Lightweight (with stretch!): J Brand "Bailey" Bootcut Leg Jeans in Mayflower

J. Brand brings simplicity and style to quality denim with a slightly...more

I just snatched these up and they're unreal! Super light weight, the right amount of stretch and an absolutely perfect fit. The medium blue wash is great for weekend wear or casual at its best. LOVE these.

Best Figure Friendly: GAP - The Curvy

Curvy jeans in the latest styles are available at Gap. Our curvy jeans...more

A perfect choice for those with athletic thighs and tiny middles, these jeans accentuate your curves in all of the right places without the awful waist gap. Tailor trips? No more! Sizing tip: Size down one size for a snug fit (lots of stretch)

Shauna: I totally agree! The waist gap is such a killer for us gals with hips and these jeans are great for that. Thanks for including them Krista!

Best Casual Crop: Joe's Jeans Boyfriend Kicker

Perhaps the most famous single name in denim, Joe's--with plenty of...more

Cropped and cool, this pair was made for those of us who adore a worn-in casual feel. Try these jeans with an airy, open-knit sweater or dress them up with a platform sandal or wedge.

Sarah: I love these- great suggestion with the sweater! Perfect for the weather in SF right now!

eFlirt Expert: As a curvy girl, Joe's Jeans are my favorite! I don't have any of their crops though -- these look adorable.

Krista: Laurie - highly recommend the crops! They're actually perfect for tucking into boots too since there's less material at the bottom. I wear mine year round!

Best "Skinny": AG Adriano Goldschmied - Premiere Jeans

AG Adriano Goldschmied - Premiere Skinny Straight-Leg Jeans -...more

Really more of a straight cut than a skinny, this trim pair is perfect for tucking into boots or pairing with a pump for nights on the town. Try it with a floaty tunic for an easy, stylish look.

Alexandra: Love these!

Samantha: Don't often see skinny jeans that I actually like, but these look like they would flatter any body type.

Catherine Wood: I'm wearing J brand High Rise Marla. Perfect for a crazy mom because they are high enough to bend over and not flash the butt. As a total hourglass they are some of the only skinnies that work for me.

Best Jeggings

Prairie Underground

Suggested by Rebecca Eisenberg

No one does jeggings like Prairie Underground. They are comfortable, flexible and very flattering. I wear one of my 4 pairs almost every day!

Krista: Since my body is definitely not what I would call "jegging-friendly", I'm going to take your advice. These sounds pretty wonderful - and four pairs is a true testament of your love for this denim. Thanks for the great suggestion!

Best High Waisted: 7 For All Mankind High Waist Bootcut in Provocar

Sexy and sophisticated. Seven Jeans re-established designer denim in...more

Get nostalgic with this high-waisted bootcut pair of jeans! Fantastic fit (hugs your body in all the right places) and light, stretchy denim will make you want to strut your stuff from day to night.

Jeanne: Been wanting to find some high waisted jeans... I love that these are in stretchy denim too. Thanks for recommending it!

Eden Godsoe: These have always been my favorite!

Alexandra: I'm 5'10" and find in general that 7s work well for me. Love these!

A classic cut and deep blue hue make this pair as sleek and professional as denim can be. A dream for those who are lucky enough to work in business casual environments and a chic go-to for any fashionista.

SkinnyScoop Member: I'm totally buying these!! I've been looking for a good bootcut, tried on a bunch @ the nordstrom anniversary sale and FAILED miserably. Thanks for the suggestion, Krista!

Shauna: Definitely going to be trying these out this weekend, I've been looking for a good bootcut as well. Love the color too. Thanks Krista :)

Best Flare: J Brand Lovestory

Suggested by Elizabeth Warner

Hi Krista- I just love your list! I thought the J brand Lovestory should also make the list as Best Flare. They are truly superior when it comes to elongating the le and believe me when I say I have tried most on the market. Great list!

Krista: I've been meaning to try these too! Now I HAVE to!

Added to Your List

Best Maternity Jeans: Citizens of Humanity

Citizens of Humanity maternity jeans at A Pea in the Pod

Suggested by Eden Godsoe

I lived in my Citizen for Humanity maternity jeans during both pregnancies (and perhaps for another 6 months after!) They are worth the investment.

Krista: Oh, fantastic! Taking your word for it because I've never been pregnant :)Citizens are another one of my favorite brands, so I'm sure these are incredible. One of my pairs has already lasted more than four years!

Suggested by Jackie

I have a good couple of pairs from INDI & they are super comfortable jeans! They are custom made meaning the customer designs the jean while INDI makes it per individual's body type/shape. They have great customer service too & a perfect fit promise.

Larissa: These look great on you, I'll have to try them someday.

Jackie: Thanks Larissa! They really are so comfortable...I highly recommend you try a pair :)

Krista: I've been wanting to visit Indi since I moved to the city! I've heard good things from MANY people. Thanks for adding to my list!
