2024 Jean Refresh for 40+

All three of us love jeans and wear them most days. We sat back and took an inventory of the ones we we have been reaching for the most lately. We ended with these four as the jeans you need to try if you need a refresh. The main qualifier? They had to look good on all three of our body types.

  1. The Gap Cheeky Jean (pictured above): A GTI Cult favorite, the Gap Cheeky has a great price point, yet looks and feels like an Agolde or Mother. They are high-waisted, straight leg, and hit right above the ankle (we are in the 'regular' inseam). Pair them with any shoe - boot, sneaker or slide and they look great. We also love them in the booty as they are great for curves! Get your regular size.

2. Anthro Colette Cropped Wide Leg Jean: A top seller at Anthro and we can see why. Flattering in the high waist, booty and thigh with a wide leg that hits just above the ankle bone. Can pair any shoe (but we love a flat or slide). Several washes and textures (think: leather) available. Size down one - these run big! (left and right are in the "medium blue," middle is the "dark blue").

3. Favorite Daughter Valentina High Rise Cigarette Jean: Uhm. We're obsessed with this jean! FD has beautiful cuts and they know a women's body. These feel like a hybrid between a skinny and a straight leg. The quality is exceptional and the price point shoes that. Left and right are the "malibu clean" and middle color is "newcastle." These will take you from day to night - just add a heel! Runs tts and looks amazing in the booty region.

4. Madewell Kick-Out Crop Jean: A great jean for "spring" with the fun kick out crop, which lends itself to flats, slides, sneakers and strappy heels. This jean is high-waisted, has a bit of stretch and comes in many colors (as pictured) we love the white! Runs tts. This is Laura's fave jean and we get asked about it all.the.time.
