Those jeans cost HOW MUCH?!!!  

Some women do not quite understand the premium denim market. For them, spending $125+ on a single pair is unfathomable and is a complete waste of money...WRONG!!!


Usually the higher the price, the better the quality. Many premium brands invest in incorporating different types of fit tecnology that will camouflage problem areas and flatter your body. Also, the fabric may be a tighter weave (which makes it softer), and the more stitches on the seams, the higher the price. If you're wondering why you should care about the weave, let me tell you: because softer weaves drape the body best. Have you ever seen a guy in an obviously bad suit? It hangs poorly and is wearing him rather than him wearing it. If you still don't get it, let me put it like this: its like the difference in 200 thread count cotton sheets vs 1000 thread count egyptian cotton sheets. Mmhmm, see? There IS a difference!

Also take into account where the jeans are made. Quite naturally, anything made in the USA rather than overseas has cost manufacturers a lot more money to produce. So those jeans are going to cost more.

Buying any article of clothing is an investment into your look, so if you're going to spend any money an anything, make sure you are getting a return on your investment. And if you wear jeans often, you will!

Premium denim tends to stand the test of time too. Good jeans age gracefully and have a longer lifespan than their cheaper counterparts. You may not feel comfortable splurging on a trendy pair, but consider doing so for your basic multi-purpose pair. Once you've found your perfect pair, if you don't want to buy 2 of the same pair (one for heels and one to be altered for flats), consider getting a hem that's slightly angled. Or, just stick with this brand or cut. Another good thing about premium brands is that they have established basic styles with specific style names. From season to season, the bodies of these basic styles stay somewhat the same, so once you know what style works for you, you're set!
