Hi Fam! This week I’m featuring some of my favorite affordable jeans that are both stylish AND wallet friendly. The summer to fall transitional season is finally here, and it’s a great time to revisit your denim game for the cooler weather.
My first denim resource and the star of today’s post is Abercrombie & Fitch! (Fun fact: I used to work at one of their premium Ruehl No.925 retail stores in college!) Like many 90s kids, Abercrombie & Fitch had a huge influence on my personal style. I grew up in A&F distressed denim shorts, graphic tees, flirty dresses and varsity hoodies. Now as I *quickly* approach 30, I’ve become obsessed with their cozy basics, chic tops, utilitarian outerwear and denim pieces. It’s amazing to see their brand evolve with me and match my personal style 10 years later!
Today, I’ve styled two different pairs of A&F jeans that will BLOW YOUR MIND in both style and price. Scroll down to read the full story, and I really hope you enjoy the double style inspiration! all my love xo -E
OUTFIT 1: HIGH WAIST, WIDE LEG
Look 1 is ALL about these high waisted, wide leg jeans is an off-white cream color. Super modern and on-trend, the silhouette of these pants are both flattering and comfortable. The high waist elongates the visual line of your legs and the loose, wide openings allow for maximum mobility and ventilation. I also love the subtle, worn-in details like the”faux cuff” seam and raw hem edging. There is something so sailor chic about these pants, and I can’t get enough! I’ve seen so many expensive versions of these pants, so I couldn’t believe I paid only $39!!! As a former 100% skinny jean wearer, my legs thank me for the switch up.
WIDE LEG JEANS
I paired the jeans with this adorable knotted button up blouse in black polkadot. If you love the look of a twisted tie front, but can’t deal with the hassle of shirt tying – this top is for you! It’s pre knotted and slightly cropped for an instant fit. I mean it when I say A&F has the cutest blouses lately. I have a hard time finding cap sleeved blouses for summer, and this one hits perfectly on my arm. It comes in 3 different colors, but there are many cute tie-front options available on the site. Here are more options!

OUTFIT 2: DISTRESSED, STRIPED
Girl, these jeans speak for themselves. Faded, ripped knee, distressed, red double side striped mom jeans with a high waisted, slim leg fit. I didn’t know what to expect when I ordered them, but I was completely blown away when I put them on. I can honestly say I have NOTHING like this pair of jeans, and they are just oozing with edgy, street style vibes. I can rock these with heels for a night out on the town or with some cool sneakers and a hoodie for a casual look. Please do yourself a favor and browse mom jean options. I scored this pair for only $35, and there are other washes to check out!
Since the jeans are such a showstopper, I went with a low-key top and neutral accessories. As I mentioned in Look 1, I prefer cap sleeve button up over regular short sleeve options. To my delight, I found this crisp white version that matches with everything. You can tuck it into your waistband like I did or tie the front ends of the shirt into a cute visible knot over your bottoms. A perfect closet staple that I’ve been needing! For shoes, I upped the glam factor with my favorite nude pointy toe pumps and a matching fold over clutch.
A BIG THANK YOU to Abercrombie & Fitch for partnering with me on this post & thank you all for supporting my dream. -xoxo E
