Top 5 Denim Brands & Every Cool Pair of Jeans Worth Buying

I have a knack for finding the best denim jeans. I love a great pair of denim but I like my denim with a little something extra. After getting a lot of questions asking where my favorite places are to shop for unique denim jeans, I decided to compile a list of some of my favorite denim brands and cool denim jeans to invest in. I don’t tend to spend a lot on clothing. I like to invest more in jewelry and designer shoes but I’ll always invest in a good pair of denim jeans. Denim will always be in style and a well-made pair of denim jeans can last you a lifetime. It’s definitely worth investing in a few good pair to last you a few years. I have 3 favorite pairs of jeans right now and I have 2 pairs of each! Yes, it’s that serious! You never know when a rip might happen and you need a backup or when a style stops being made. Here’s a look as some of my favorite denim brands and every cool pair worth buying right now. 


Agolde exploded on the scene in 2018 with their asymmetrical zipper boyfriend jeans and nothing was the same. I got those jeans and never looked back. They are super comfortable and whenever I wear them I get compliments. I love dressing them up with a great pair of heeled sandals in Spring and a black leather boot in the Fall & Winter. I also love their distressed white straight denim jeans. They fit like a glove and are my go-to jeans for Spring and Summer. 


I have about 5 pairs of DL1961 Denim Jeans, they’re that good. Their distressed hem jeans that I’m wearing in these photos are my favorite of all time. I wear them year around and love that they are unique and show off whatever shoe I’m wearing from booties in Fall to mules in Spring and Summer. DL1961 knows how to do denim. I love their high waisted white paperboy denim jeans that I featured in a recent YouTube Video and their cropped denim jeans as well. They are currently having a 30% off Sale on their website with code: FRIENDS30


& Other Stories is my favorite high street brand for great denim. They do denim exceptionally well. I have about 5 pairs of their jeans from Mom Jeans, to wide legged denim jeans, to neutral high waisted wide legged denim trousers and more. I loved their mom jeans so much I bought 2 pair! They are my most worn pair of denim jeans and the jeans I get asked about the most. The fit is absolutely perfect especially for those with a smaller waist to hip ration. 


I got my first pair of GRLFRND denim from Revolve a few weeks ago and I’ve never gotten more questions on a pari of jeans so quickly. They are a super cool pair of jeans with two cut outs on the hips. I saw them and had to have them and now I’m pretty much obsessed with all of their denim jeans.


After I got my first pair of two-tone Alexander Wang jeans, I got the itch. I have a few pairs of unique Denim x Alexander Wang Jeans in my cart across different websites. I love the use of different materials and colors used for these denim jeans. They are pretty pricey but you’ll be one of the few with these jeans.
