The best jeans for women are those you slip into with comfort and confidence, without a second thought.
You know you’ve found the right ones when you never want to take them off; when they’re the piece in you wardrobe you wear without hesitation, for any occasion.
Sometimes they’re costly, particularly those from brands focused on sustainable fashion, but they’re worth the spend when you wear them over and over again, for years to come.
But finding the denim brand (or brands) that works for you can be difficult.
These days you’ve got more women's clothing stores online to navigate than ever before, so knowing where to start your search can be difficult.
So if you’re unsure where to look for the best jeans for women, keep scrolling to find some timeless, classic, foolproof styles and brands to buy now and wear for seasons to come.
There’s nothing you can’t do with the perfect pair of jeans.
Whether you’re heading to the shops, a cafe date with friends, or an evening out the go-to option for simple but classic style will always be jeans.
Dressed up with heels and a blazer or styled in a very casual way with sneakers and a sweatshirt, they never fail.
But there are a few basic things to keep in mind to help you find the styles that work for you, which can be a difficult task.
First of all, mid- to high-rise jeans often sit better and are less likely to cause a ‘muffin-top’ effect (something we all love!).
They also help to elongate your figure, which is always a plus.
Wide leg jeans are more suited to taller women, while straight- or skinny-leg jeans are great for women with a more petite frame.
And keep in mind that trends will come and go, but the classics will never be outdated.
Below you’ll find a collection of the best women’s jeans from both some well known denim brands and others you may not have discovered yet.
And if sustainable fashion is important to you I’ve also included many options for sustainable and ethical jeans as well as some brands that are making changes to work towards this very significant goal.

Considered as a universally flattering style, straight-leg jeans are also one of the most popular styles.
Not too tight or too loose, this style skims over the hips to remain relaxed and comfortable yet still looks and feels sleek and flattering.
And it’s one of the styles considered as the best jeans for women with a petite stature, as its streamlined style and generally higher waist elongates the figure.
Another flattering and popular style of jeans for women with petite figures, skinny- and slim-leg jeans are great for any body type so
long as you feel comfortable and confident when wearing them.
Similarly to straight-leg jeans this style elongates your figure.
A pair with a bit of flexibility in the fabric can make them more comfortable than a ridged fabric.
This is also the style to pair with knee-high boots.
Generally appearing with a cinched-in top that accentuates your waistline and loose legs that skim over your figure, these are the most
popular style of jeans for taller women and a style that’s particularly flattering for hourglass figures.
There are also variations among wide-leg jeans, some being not too different from a straight-leg style while others appear with a very wide, and sometimes cropped, leg.
You might find the narrower, longer leg paired with heels better if you are more petite.
The term ‘mom jeans’ refers to the original version of this style that appeared on the scene in the late 80s and early
90s as popular jeans for older women.
Since their revival the story is different and the jeans we’re seeing - somewhat more stylish than the earlier version - are popular regardless of age.
Generally appearing with a higher waist and a looser leg they offer a relaxed style that's here to stay.
As the name suggests, this style is quite baggy offering an extra casual look and often sitting lower on the hip.
But even those that aren’t a mid- to high-rise style, the relaxed fit around the waist means they don’t go creating a ‘muffin-top’.
And whether you're the proud owner of a big, small, flat or round bum this style is a crowd favourite.
These are the best jeans for women looking for a very relaxed and comfortable style.
