Jeans are one of the best clothing items to have ever become famous. They are comfortable, versatile and the numerous different designs available give you plenty of freedom to experiment with different looks and styles.
You can wear jeans at work, out and about and as part of a chic and sexy night-out outfit, so really, what’s not to love?
As we are slowly approaching the end of the year, we thought it would be useful to look at some of the best brands for designer jeans of 2018.
These are popular names in the fashion industry, that have been around for quite some time and as of this year, they still remain some of the best brands for women’s jeans.
Time to see which brands have made our list for this year.
1. Levi Strauss And Co.
Levi’s is one of the first brands that comes to mind when we talk about jeans and as such, we could not leave it out of this selection.
Levi’s was founded in May of 1853, in San Francisco, California, by Levi Strauss, a German immigrant.
This is a clothing brand, with a specialty in denim, which had a rise in popularity during the 1950s, as more and more people started wearing jeans as the rocker, hippie and greaser subcultures became popular among the youth.
It’s around this time that the Levi’s 501 jeans came to be, which are still their top-selling design.
Levi’s is a very popular brand among women as they provide numerous jeans designs that fit different body types and sizes. Albeit not being the most affordable brand out there, in this case you truly get what you pay for, which is quality and style.
It was founded in 1978 and its beginnings were with jeans, as the founder, Renzo Rosso, began stitching jeans at the young age of fifteen.
In the 1990, the brand started branching internationally and the rest is history.
The denim products are exclusively produced in Italy and the quality of products is that of a true high-end brand.
They design and manufacture a variety of different clothes, not only limited to denim.
And since we are focusing on women’s jeans, you’d be glad to know that Diesel provides some of the best jeans designs for women, albeit at a high price.
3. JOE’s Jeans
JOE’s Jeans is a high-end jeans brand, which offers a moderate range of other products, but that’s understandable since their main focus is on jeans.
It was founded in 2001 and is now owned by two other companies. However, the brand name itself is still available and the quality of materials and the style is just as good.
The women’s jeans are nothing short of stylish and beautiful. Options with open ankles at the back, ripped, distressed, decorated with studs and rhinestones are all available and you are sure to love some of these designs.
This is a pricey brand, comparable to Diesel above, however the gorgeous designs and the quality of materials used more than justifies the price you will be paying for a pair of JOE’s Jeans product.
4. Pepe Jeans
Pepe Jeans is a brand with nearly half a century’s worth of experience.
It was founded in 1973 in London by three brothers and then later expanded into the European market around the ’80s. Currently they have numerous stores on many different countries and the odds are pretty good that you can find one near you.
The product range includes not solely options for men and women, but kids as well and you can find a variety of clothes.
The jeans’ designs are quite avant-garde, not something you will come across often as jeans’ styles tend to be quite typical and uniform across different brands, especially more affordable ones.
However, we are talking quality here, and not solely in materials and the time and effort put into creating a product, but quality of style, too.
Jeans with full-length side zippers, flares that open wide and colored outer stitches, everything “out there” you might imagine is available as part of Pepe Jeans‘ collections.
The price is not the most affordable, but if you are looking for a niche design that will add a bit of extra style to your wardrobe, this is the brand for you.
Following up with an American brand, Lee was established in 1889 in Kansas.
Lee specializes in denim jeans and currently retails internationally and employs over 400 people in the U.S alone.
Their popularity grew in the early 1900s as they launched the work jumpsuit and overalls, later also introducing the zipper fly to their products.
The product range includes different clothing and styles of pants, for adults and kids as well.
You can choose from the many stylish jeans designs, and if you are in the mood for wearing something different, there are overalls available for purchasing, too.
Whether you like skinny jeans or enjoy designs with wider cuts, there is something to everyone’s taste in their products.
Just like the previous brand-name jeans, these too are pricey, but hey, you pay for the brand name along with the quality of the product, too.
6. Miss Me
A brand solely for women, Miss Me provides beautiful clothing designs in a variety of styles and colors.
The brand’s first product collection was launched in 2001 and it included modern and elegant clothes, with the purpose of “capturing the many identities of a woman” as they themselves put it.
We find interesting not solely the overall designs available, but the fact that there is an Abstract collection, for those of you who enjoy a bit more sass in your jeans, rather than the regular, mass-produced styles available on the market.
Much like its predecessors above, Miss Me is also a pricey brand.
GUESS is another widely known brand for its multitude of products, which include accessories, jewelry, beachwear, shoes, bags, perfumes and, of course, clothes.
This is an expensive brand, let’s get that out of the way. But as we said above, popular brand clothes have that in common, as you are paying for the brand name and not just the product.
In the case of GUESS’ denim apparel, you are definitely going to love the style and designs.
You can even find denim dresses, as well as skirts, to kick things up a notch and change up your wardrobe.
Their jeans’ designs include both classic styles, without too much done to them, as well as more modern and daring options, which include distressing, ripping, flaring and numerous appliqués added, as well as decorations with different buttons and rhinestones.
Denim shorts are also part of their products, and should you want to mix and match, there are denim tops and sets to purchase.
8. True Religion
Another American brand, True Religion was founded in 2002, making it a more recent brand compared to the others.
The brand’s main focus is premium denim clothing, which includes not only jeans, but overalls and jackets, too.
Their clothes are made in the US and retail worldwide.
Their jeans for women come in a multitude of cuts, styles and colors. Whether you prefer a minimalist style or enjoy being a bit more daring and experimental with your dressing style, there is definitely something for you in their product range.
That’s it for this selection!
By now you might be a bit disappointed that all the featured brands are on the expensive side, but the purpose of this selection was to look at some of the Top Jeans Brands of 2018, and as with everything that is highly rated and raved about, the price tag is not typically buyer-friendly.
In the past we have compiled different selections of affordable jeans and one of them is an alternative to Levi’s jeans, which you should definitely check out if you like Levi’s style but are on a tight budget.
See you in the next one!
