My New Favorite (Affordable!) Denim Brand

My New Favorite (Affordable!) Denim Brand

If you’re anything like me, finding a great pair of jeans is far from easy. Some are too stretchy, while others don’t have enough give. And so often they sag, or gape or bunch up in all the wrong places. The struggle is real!

In the past I’ve resorted to investing in premium denim brands, which I love, but often come with such a hefty price tag. So when I decided that it was time to add a few new pairs of jeans to my collection, I was thrilled to stumble upon Articles of Society. They’ve fast become my new favorite denim brand and so I thought I should spread the love!

In case you’re new to the brand, like I was, they’re based out of LA, but you can find their jeans in a couple of the major department stores across the US. I first came across them in Nordstrom.

denimI was looking to buy some distressed denim, but didn’t want to spend a fortune, since we never really know how long these trends are going to stick around. What I found with Articles of Society is the look and feel of a premium brand, for about half the price.

Perfect for me since I usually feel guilty about spending too much money on clothes (in fact I wrote a whole post on what I do to build up a clothes shopping fund!).

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I pretty much live in jeans. And because I’m typically chasing around after my kids, comfort is always high up on my list of must-haves. Articles of Society jeans definitely deliver on that front. The ones I’m wearing here are just as comfy as any leggings I own 🙂

They do tend to stretch out a little after a couple of wears, but you can just pop them in the washing machine and they’ll snap right back.

In my experience, they run true to size (I wear a 25 in all the various styles I own, which is my usual size). Because they stretch a bit, you could probably size down if you’re in between sizes.

I will say that at 5’4″, these jeans run a little long on me – probably the only con. However, you can cuff them as I often do, or easily get them hemmed. The cropped style which I’m wearing is more like ankle length on me, but that’s really what I wanted anyway!

Today I decided to pair them with this comfy twist front sweatshirt from Target and my new favorite peep toe booties from Sole Society. The sweatshirt’s a steal and comes in four different colors. Oh and I’m pretty sure that I’ll be wearing these booties on repeat through Spring.

Here are a few of my other favorites from the Articles of Society.

And I have a feeling that I might be adding a few more of their jeans to my collection still over the coming months…
