Nothing's better than finding the PERFECT pair of jeans. The one with the perfect fit, style, color, AND feel – the kind of jeans you want to get in every color and wear with every outfit. Since a lot of people are moving away from their long-time collection of skinny jeans to straight leg, wide leg, flare leg, etc., I’ve gotten many requests to share my favorite denim jeans for women!
(P.S. I still LOVE and wear my skinny jeans all the time!)
But let's get into the top 5 jeans I would recommend right now at Nordstrom – just in time for spring!
In a hurry? Go straight to my picks below!
I did all the dirty work
Who likes trying on one pair of jeans, let alone 20+?!
Well, I just went ahead and did this at my local Nordstrom, and I actually do this every year during their anniversary sale, but wanted to right NOW since they just released so many good brand new cuts and styles.
I do it because I know you probably DON'T want to! And I hear over and over when I do these posts how extremely helpful they are, so I'm happy to take on the task if it helps! I found the very best options and I truly can recommend them because I've seen and felt them ALL.
Some of these jeans for women are on the higher end, and some more affordable – but they're ALL jeans I LOVE and recommend and can’t wait to share with you!

1. My current TOP PICK & vote for MOST COMFORTABLE jeans
Think comfort of leggings or sweatpants, but DENIM!
These jeans are amazing. They’re beyond soft and so comfortable. They really feel like a high-quality pair of jeggings that make your bum look good, yet instead of skinny jeans they have the perfect straight leg.
Another thing I love is that they don’t get all saggy by the end of the day like many stretchy jeans do! And they fit SO well at the top. Seriously MAGIC jeans. A higher-end jean but SO worth the price!
Size recommendation: they run big, so definitely size down one size!
The perfect tee to go with
I found that this top doesn’t go as low as the other v-neck tees from Madewell that I have, which is SO nice. To make sure I have a neckline that I feel comfortably modest in, I feel like I have to constantly fidget with my other Madewell v-necks. So I seriously LOVE the way this one hits!
Faux leather jacket to top it off
Okay, this faux leather jacket feels JUST like real leather and is another bonus item I had to mention! I mean, when you're shopping at Nordstrom it's easy to get distracted, am I right?
But even better than feeling like real leather, it also has a stretchy panel on the inside of the arm that makes it sooo much more comfortable to wear than most other leather (or even faux leather) jackets. And you can’t see the panel unless you look super close!
Tried and true heels
When I was in NYC shopping in their showroom, I learned that Sam Edelman partnered with Nike to put this cushioning technology in their heels to make them extra comfortable. And they're just that: sooo comfortable you could walk in them for hours without your feet hurting!
I wore these heels for a fun, fancier date night look, but you could totally put this outfit with a pair of sneakers for a cute casual look, too.
I completed the ‘fit with a YSL wallet on a chain. I got this bag a few years ago from Nordstrom, and it's one of my very FAVORITE bags! But if you're not wanting to splurge that hard, I love this one that's still a really classic forever bag.
2. More AFFORDABLE dream jeans
For a more affordable and alternative pair of jeans, l'm loving these quality wide-leg Free People jeans with holes in the knees – a super stylish, casual look.
This pair has more structure and less stretch than the other jeans, but are still SO very comfortable to wear! A lot of high-waisted, wide leg jeans can make me feel so constricted. Especially about half-way through the day after I’ve eaten a cheeseburger. So, I LOVE that these jeans don’t have that discomfort of a super structured, no stretch pair of jeans but still have that same flattering wide leg look!
And for the great quality they are, they’re only $78 which is such a steal!!
Even MORE favorite jeans
3. Most FLATTERING
If you already have a pair of super comfortable jeans, but are just looking for something super flattering, these Good American Good Straight Jeans get my vote, hands down!!
4. Most like true '90s jeans
The '90s are back in full force and these jeans are my top recommendation if you're looking for something that really lends to that style! These have a loose, mom-jean fit with a wide leg and they're SO DANG CUTE on. There are a lot of jeans trying to make the cut for this style, but these ones take the cake!
5. Nordstrom's “most popular” option right now
These jeans were the store associate's favorite and I know a LOT of people are loving them right now! I tried them on and give them a solid 4/5. I just think the other jeans above were a little better in certain areas, but if you love the MOTHER brand and want to invest in something you're familiar with, these are a GREAT option.
Shopping jeans at Nordstrom is even better and more rewarding thanks to FREE shipping and FREE returns, BOPUS, curbside pickup, and The Nordy Club where you can earn points with every purchase!! You can even get FREE alterations at Nordstrom if needed! Amazing, right?
I'm jean-uinely in love with these
Those are my top 5 picks for the best jeans for women at Nordstrom right now – I hope it was helpful in finding that perfect pair you’ve been searching for! Go grab one of these jeans and TREAT YOURSELF. You WON’T be disappointed.
