If you ask us denim-loving Who What Wear editors, boring jeans are the best jeans. After all, the number one thing that jeans have going for them is the fact that they're the most versatile thing you can wear. (But that doesn't mean we don't love a unique pair from time to time. How amazing are these?)
After months of warm-weather styles, we're ready to transition into fall the best way we know how: denim. Each of us has had our eye on a few pairs of everyday (aka "boring") jeans that we know we'll wear constantly when fall hits on September 23 and beyond.
As you'll see below, many of us have similar taste when it comes to the brands we shop for the best "boring" jeans. There are several styles from the likes of Agolde, J Brand, Levi's, and more. Now is the best time of year to stock up on denim, so keep scrolling to shop the pairs of jeans we plan on purchasing.
"J Brand designed these in collaboration with Elsa Hosk, giving them the ultimate cool-girl feel. I'm way into the slouchy-but-not-too-slouchy shape, something I'd wear with a pretty blouse and kitten heels."
"So many of Who What Wear's editors own these jeans that I think I need to add them to my wardrobe now, too. Between the high rise and the straight leg fit, they encompass everything I look for in a pair of jeans. I'll be opting for the washed black color because I basically live in black jeans in the fall."
"If I were to pick one shade of denim to wear for the rest of my life, this would be it. At first glance, these seem like they're pretty standard basic jeans. However, the fit is impeccable, and the back pockets add something special. Goldsign is known for those unique back pockets, and I'm obsessed with how they look."
"This slightly skinnier straight leg is the second pair. You can't really beat $40 for a pair of quality Levi's. I will leave them long rather than hemming them for a cropped fit, as I'm sensing a turn of the tides against ankle-baring jeans."
"I'm really into off-white and cream-colored jeans, which I can't wait to pair with similar-hued sweaters this fall. (You wouldn't guess I have a baby!) This Rachel Comey pair is on my fall wish list."
"Basic skinny and slim-leg jeans are back for fall (thanks in part to their substantial appearance on the Celine runway.) This Citizens of Humanity pair are perfect to wear with my knee high-boots and strappy sandals alike."
"These say ankle length, but the inseam is 28 inches, which is pretty much full length for my height of 5'4". They're basically the perfect classic black skinny jeans, and I love that the wash is a bit faded. It makes them feel fresh for 2019."
"These are so good I want them in the denim blue and khaki green colors too (and at this price, not much is stopping me). I know it's hard to believe, but the new wave of pleated jeans is surprisingly flattering."
"I'm all about a good straight-leg jean. These from Agolde are perfection. The wash is easy to wear, and the rise hits me just right. There's nothing fancy about them. They are just the jeans you always reach for in your denim drawer, and that's more than enough."
