In a past life, before I was an assistant editor at Who What Wear, I worked as a stylist for Nordstrom. I loved everything about being a stylist. I got to play with clothes all day and help people feel more confident about their personal styles. One of the things most people want to know is what denim brand works for me. As an avid jeans wearer, I love a good pair of jeans and have tried almost every brand you can think of.
Not only have I tried several denim brands, but I have also recommended them to clients, friends, and now to you. Nordstrom is my absolute go-to when looking for all things denim. It carries all of my favorite brands plus offers free basic alterations on Nordstrom-purchased clothing, so if I need a quick hem, it’s no big deal. When shopping for jeans, there are three things that are important to me: wash, cut, and fit. I need jeans that not only look luxe but feel it as well and are super flattering. Of course, I’d never brag about all the great denim brands Nordstrom has to offer without letting you in on my favorites.
Keep scrolling to see the six denim brands that I currently can’t get enough of.
If you haven’t tried Good American yet, you’re missing out. These jeans are known for how flattering they are and how comfortable they feel. I find that they run a little big, so I recommend sizing down, but whenever I want a pair of jeans that I know will give me an immediate confidence boost, I reach for these.
You can never go wrong with a good pair of Levi’s jeans. My favorite style is the classic 501. I wear them constantly. I love the classic American style of Levi’s, so I’ll probably never stop wearing this brand.
Mother jeans just scream luxury. As soon as I put them on, I can tell I’m not just throwing on an average pair of jeans. I love how these jeans hug my hips and have multiple cropped hem options for those of us who are a little more petite. These jeans are my guilty pleasure.
I’m a huge fan of Frame denim. I love the classic California-yet-luxurious vibe the brand has, and the jeans are a total reflection of that. These jeans are worth the investment—trust me.
Once anyone tries these jeans, they’re hooked. I’m a fan of the looser style of Agolde jeans. They have an effortlessly cool look to them that I adore. These jeans are definitely worth the hype.
This brand is a new personal favorite. As soon as I tried them on, I was obsessed. The fabric is so soft and feels so good against my skin. I cannot stop recommending these jeans to everyone, especially the boot-cut pair.
