Your Ultimate Guide to Spring’s Most Wearable Jeans (All Under $30)

This post is sponsored by DENIZEN® from Levi’s® jeans

My jeans are my wardrobe workhorse! When I need to run to the store, I throw on some jeans. Last minute movie date, I reach for my jeans. Influencer event with my fashionable friends, I dress up some jeans. In my world, there’s a perfect denim outfit for every occasion. Honestly, I don’t think any item in my closet works as hard as my favorite jeans. Now, you might think that jeans that work overtime like mine do have to be expensive, but that is not the case. I’ve been rocking DENIZEN® from Levi’s® jeans for years. They won me over by being comfortable, stylish, and affordable. Each pair is under $30 and is available at Target!

I’m excited, then, to partner with DENIZEN® jeans to share my must-haves from the brand’s new styles for spring. Of course, I’m going to share my favorite ways to wear them too.

White Crops

Nothing says spring like a crisp pair of white jeans. True story, though, I’ve struggled to find a pair of white jeans that flatter my shape. You too? When I saw that the DENIZEN® brand has a Modern Crop in white, I started celebrating before even trying them on. And, I’m excited to say that DENIZEN® came through again.

The Modern Crop features the super-stretchy premium denim I’ve grown to expect from DENIZEN® jeans. If you’re curvy on the bottom like me, you’ll also love the mid-rise on the crops. No need to worry about our assets not being fully accommodated.

Now that I have these perfectly-fitting white crops, I’ll be ready for any white party. I can pair my white denim with an off-the-shoulder top for a right-on-trend look.

For reference, I’m wearing a size 6 in the Modern Crop.

By the way, if you’re a fellow color lover, white denim is like the ideal partner for spring brights.

Ankle Skinnies

I used to have a love-hate relationship with skinny jeans. Skinnies are the easiest silhouette to style, but geesh, a poor fit could make them so uncomfortable. DENIZEN® jeans ultimately won me over because they’re ultra soft, super stretchy, and hold their shape. So, naturally, I got them in every shade of blue. This new ankle style, the Modern Ankle Skinny is the made-for-spring version of my ultimate favorite pair of jeans.

The Modern Ankle Skinny is available in three shades—Magnetic, Flip, and Chrome. I’m wearing my signature dark rinse, Flip. I find dark rinse jeans to be the most versatile, particularly as it relates to dressing them up.

Let me tell you. These bad boys hug curves and move when I move. And, I’m so here for that.

For a Girls’ Night Out, I can pair pretty much any cool top with these jeans and be styling.

Cuffed Shorts

Temperatures are already soaring in St. Louis. In your area too? I’m declaring that shorts season is here. So, I snagged a pair of Modern Shorts. They feature all the elements we love about DENIZEN® jeans, from a comfortable mid-rise to the super-stretchy denim. The shorts also have a cool 1″ cuff that screams picnic-perfect.

For reference, I’m wearing the shorts in a size 4. They fit so fabulously that I never want to take them off.

For an event in my neighborhood park recently, I wore the shorts with a gingham shirt and chucks. And, I felt fly!

Here’s another way I’ve worn the shorts already. Can’t go wrong with stripes, right?

All three of these DENIZEN® jeans styles are available at Target and The crops and ankle skinnies retail for $27.99 while the shorts retail for $19.99.

    You look great in all of these, but you really DO look fly in those shorts and cute gingham top. I am sure you’ll be able to get a lot of use out of all of these pairs this summer!

    I ‘ve been on the hunt for white jeans also – the same issue as you. I love my denizen dark wash jeans which I purchased because of you and will be doing the same with the white modern crop.

      So glad to hear that you’ve been enjoying your DENIZEN jeans, Nylse! I’m confident that you’d love the white modern crop. I had to size up, so I recommend trying them on if you can.

    I love Your shoes and bag with the all white outfit. Where did you get them? I have been looking for those colours.
