The Edit: 10 Denim Brands That Are Worth the Splurge
As far as style essentials go, denim is king. Be it a pair of frayed-hem jeans or classic high-rise skinnies, they’re the one piece in your closet you can count on to effortlessly take you from casual Fridays at the office to Sundays spent spring cleaning and at a post-GNO brunch sesh with your girls. That undeniable versatility means we’re always on the lookout for new styles and brands to test out. The 10 below bear a heftier price tag than fast-fashion labels like H&M or Zara, but trust us, girl — the Instababe-approved styling and high-quality materials make it so worth it.
1. Mother Denim Birds of Paradise ($248): While this burgeoning It-girl brand includes “mother” in the name, their portfolio of #OOTD-worthy denim is anything but matronly. Equipped with dip-dyed hems and a relaxed, ankle-grazing silhouette, these high-waisted jeans are the complete package. For a decidedly ’70s vibe, pair ’em with a sleeveless rib knit top, aviators, and colorful clogs.
