Finding the perfect pair of jeans is one of the greatest shopping feats known to womankind (not to be dramatic or anything). It is an ongoing endeavour, and one that is definitely worth every effort. From fit to fabric to silhouette, finding a flattering pair can be a daunting task.

When it comes time to give your denim collection an update, consider fit before all else. Other details fall short when the jean you’ve invested in doesn’t highlight your figure and you don’t feel comfortable wearing it. Brands like The Feel Studio offer a thorough fit guide with a series of questions to assess the perfect size for your body and preference in fit, and radically, the Studio offers only one style.

To help you navigate the overwhelming options of true blues out there, we’ve curated a list of fashion girls’ go-to denim brands stocking the best styles of the moment. From 100 percent sustainable premium cotton to the most flattering cut for your body type to rising denim brands you may not have heard of yet, consider this your guide to finding the next pair of jeans you will live in day in and day out.
