There’s not much we won’t do for a good denim recommendation. The backbone of any self-respecting wardrobe, finding a great fitting pair of jeans is the equivalent of finding a golden ticket—well, a golden ticket to the perfect outfit. 

Ridiculously wearable, jeans can be dressed up and down and always add a cool, effortless vibe to any look. But, like any good wardrobe staple (have you ever tried to find a perfect white t-shirt?), securing a pair to suit your body shape, style and vibe can be deceptively overwhelming. 

While our approach to shopping for denim jeans has a lot of similarities to catching pokemon (we’ve quite literally gotta catch them all), this also means we’ve tested our fair share of styles and pairs. Fortunately, this denim obsession has perfectly positioned us to pull together a comprehensive list of the best denim going round.

From plus size to petite, boyfriend to baggy, straight-leg and wide-leg denim, keep reading for our list of the best jeans to shop on the internet right now.
