Now that the temperatures are finally cooling down, it’s time to swap our shorts and dresses for the most timeless staple in our closets: jeans. However, if you’ve been living in sweats, leggings, and anything else with an elastic waistband, the jeans you haven’t touched in nearly two years may no longer cut it.
Stiff denim is the last thing we want to wear at the end of the day, so we scoured Amazon to find stretchy, slimming jeans that, according to reviewers, don’t disappoint. You might think that “stretch jeans” translates to “jeggings” and, you might have a point. Fortunately, some of these skirts are so stylish that no one can tell.
Not only should your denim be comfortable and breathable, but it should also complement your figure, so we’ve kept that in mind with these picks. From skinny jeans and elastic-waist splits to Gen Z-approved straight-leg styles, read on for the skinny jeans you’ll want in your closet this fall.
