Readers always ask about affordable jeans. Affordable meaning around $75.
It’s tough for me to answer because usually I score them on sale (yes score, because it’s pure luck followed by overwhelming pleasure that I find such a deal), at a sample sale, or some boutique that sells brands I’ve never heard of (like the $75 pair of purple Blank skinny jeans from Intermix).
InStyle posted this guide that gives good suggestions. I hope this is more helpful.
