The best jeans for women are the pairs you want to live in: Ones you can wear over and over again, and that get better each time you slip into them. They’re the styles that might be a small investment but have a large return and last for seasons to come. If you’re in the market for new denim, keep in mind that trends come and go, but classics are forever. A fresh and well-fitting pair of jeans is personal, whether you prefer to find a single, perfect silhouette and stick to it (à la Tonne Goodman’s stark white, straight-leg, non-stretch denim Levi’s) or keep a few favorites on rotation to switch up the wash or cut.

A Cheatsheet to the Best Jeans for Women

If you’re not sure where to start, here’s a handful of foolproof, can’t-go-wrong silhouettes every woman should have in her wardrobe. For starters, consider a classic stovepipe or boot-cut jean (both of which can be dressed up or down). Then try a more relaxed fit, like a pair of wide-leg or ankle-length jeans for the weekend. If you’re looking for something that’s comfort-first, you’ll find happiness in a baggy or relaxed-leg style.

Regardless of your preferred style or shopping habits, sticking to simple, vintage-inspired washes with minimal (if any!) distressing is the way to go for added versatility. Of course, the hundreds of options on the market can still be daunting. We’ve gone through them all and found 28 perfect pairs of the best jeans for women right now, below.

The Wide-Leg

For an elevated take on denim this fall, make a high-waist, wide-leg silhouette your go-to jean. The style’s versatility may come as a surprise; wear a pair with any footwear or top of your choosing. Think of this cut like a denim trouser; Isabel Marant’s pair is the perfect silhouette to wear from the office out to dinner.

The High-Rise Straight 

Simple and just a little vintage-inspired, classic straight-leg jeans can be worn with everything from a blazer and heels to a T-shirt. Look to downtown label Khaite for a pristine pair that oozes forever cool.

The Flare

Expose a flash of ankle (or new fall footwear) with a pair of cropped flared jeans. Or give your denim outfits a polished vibe with a pair that will make your legs look miles long à la these splurge-worthy jeans from Stella McCartney.

The Baggy

For those looking for something roomier than a traditional wide-leg, consider the big baggy jean—which has earned a spot as a denim classic. For a runway-approved trend, look no further than Agolde’s Clara jean that hangs low from the hips (and might be my favorite denim style of all time!).

The Comfy 

These soft, loose-fitting jeans rival the comfort level of lounge pants but look so much cooler; those weary of denim might want to consider these non-jean, jeans styles. For a relaxed fit, we suggest The Frankie Shop’s cult-favorite baggy-fit jean that exudes comfort with its elastic waist band.

The Slim-Fit 

These aren’t quite “skinny” jeans, but they’re sure the closest thing to it. Get that leggy look without the legging look with a slim leg silhouette from brands like Goldsign, who specializes in timeless silhouettes. Style them as you would your former skinny pairs with, say, a pair of knee-high boots. This edit offers both cropped and ankle lengths as well as rises from mid to high.

The Cuffed

Finally, it’s time to talk about cuffing season—the denim version, that is. Choose one of these intentional rolled-hem jeans to create a two-tone washed look. You can opt for a more statement cuff with Bottega’s pin-tucked pair, or go for subtlety with Moussy’s pants. Make sure you throw on some chic sneakers as well, since these bare all below the ankles.
