The perfect jeans can be hard to find. Too loose, too tight, too expensive, too long — the list of issues with denim goes on and on. If you're looking for a new pair that fits well and doesn't break the bank, you'll want to check out Old Navy's High-Waisted O.G. Straight Jeans.
At $50 CAD, these jeans are already relatively affordable — but Old Navy currently has an additional 50 per cent off all purchases — and these magic jeans are included. The discount (which is automatically applied at checkout) is only valid online and ends Oct. 18 at 11:59 p.m. PST.
Old Navy's take on the mom jeans trend has the silhouette, rise and shape of retro jeans with a slight stretch. Calling on '90s nostalgia, these jeans have a high rise waist that comes in either button or zip fly. Plus, they come in three different inseams perfect for all heights: petite, regular and long.
While these have the look of your favourite vintage pair of denim, these jeans have stretch to ensure the perfect fit without being too form-fitting or constricting — ideal for anyone who isn't quite ready to stray from leggings after 2+ years of working from home.
I first ordered these jeans when they were on sale. I needed something affordable and comfortable to wear while attending meetings, running errands and dressing up for date night. To say it was love at first sight would be an understatement. I'm a skinny jeans enthusiast who has often struggled to find straight leg or mom jean styles that suit my petite frame. I always found mom jeans to cut in too much and straight leg styles to make my already-short legs appear even shorter.
These pants have the mom jeans' rise and silhouette with a straight leg inseam that tapers slightly to flatter while still remaining true to the straight leg title. The light stretch in these jeans makes them feel lived-in, further contributing to the vintage appeal. The jeans also feature a smoothing pocket — which really does work — making even the most oversized sweaters appear streamlined when tucked in.
After wearing these jeans a few times, I quickly ordered more washes — and now these are my most reached-for jeans. The only downside is that they do tend to stretch after wearing so I'd recommend sizing down (especially if you buy a pair with the button fly!). They may be tight at first but will quickly adjust to your shape.
'I just ordered three more pairs'
After purchasing these jeans and wearing them for a couple of weeks, I wasn't surprised to learn that I'm not the only one who has purchased multiple pairs of these jeans.
"I struggle finding a pair of jeans that look and feel good. I love these jeans! They are so comfortable and I can wear them without feeling insecure," says one reviewer. "I liked the ankle cut so I purchased the long jeans as well and I love those even more!"
"Love these jeans! I never thought I would like a button fly but they are so beyond comfortable! The first pair of mom jeans that were actually flattering on me. I need more colours!" adds another.
'Finally found jeans I feel good in!'
Another reason so many shoppers love these jeans? The flattering silhouette, rise and slight stretch.
"Why am I emotional that I finally found jeans I feel good in? These jeans are legit! I'm two months postpartum after my second C-section, and these just look and feel so good to wear," says one reviewer. "Comfortable enough to hang around the house in but easily dressed up!"
"These pants are great! I am 5' and the ankle length is perfect for my short legs. They are super comfortable. I am older and love the higher waist to keep everything 'tucked' in!" adds another. "Not too loose, not too tight."
If you're looking for flattering denim that doesn't compromise on comfort, the Old Navy High-Waisted O.G. Straight Jeans fit the bill — especially at their current sale price. From my experience, I would suggest sizing down to get the perfect fit, since these do stretch out after wearing.
