I don’t know about you, but whenever I’m shopping for the best women’s jeans, it always seems to result in some kind of trauma. You know, the kind that only really bad change room lighting can cause. It feels like I’m always lugging a rack full of different cuts and colourways to try on in the dimly lit change room only to find out they all look like shit and have a little cry about it.

Otherwise, if I buy them online, I wind up getting every pair on the website in three different sizes only to return them all days after they arrive because none of them fit. However, when I do strike gold, and find the perfect pair of jeans — the pair that fits just right, makes your butt look good and goes with almost every top and jacket combo you own — I buy them in every shade, so I can avoid this whole ordeal for another three to five years.

The good news is that I’m here today to make our painstaking shared experience a little more bearable by doing some of the legwork for you. I’ve made it my mission to hunt down some of the best pairs of women’s jeans — from mom jeans and straight legs, boot cuts, skinny jeans and flares —and even crowd-sourced a few recommendations from my colleagues and friends on the Internet. You’re welcome!
