In 1873, a fashion staple was born: jeans. The brainchild of Levi Strauss, these denim trousers would take on a life of their own, transforming personal style and becoming the cornerstone of casual attire. Now a part of every modern wardrobe, jeans have taken on various forms, colors, cuts, and fits. Many women now deem it necessary to have a few pairs hanging in the closet, ready for a night out on the town or a laid back weekend day at a moment's notice.
Over the years, designers and design houses have improved, embellished, and recreated jeans in ways that keep the article of clothing relevant and exciting. Jeans have therefore morphed from a practical piece of clothing into a style statement. Several brands now specialize in jeans, and tailor their product to flatter women of all shapes and sizes.
J Brand jeans are some of the most popular on the market today, and can be found in the closets of many celebrities (they have even been worn by royalty!). These jeans offer top-notch quality and flattering cuts. Closed is another favorite luxury denim label, catering to women who love to invest in great pieces of clothing. The attention to detail evident in this line of denim makes it a favorite among fashion editors and consumers alike. Another heavy-hitter in the world of denim brands is 7 For All Mankind. Stylists love dressing their clients in this premium brand, and women love the innovative cuts and styles of "Sevens" (as they have been nicknamed).
