The Best Levi’s Jeans for Women

Jeans have been a wardrobe staple for decades, which is no surprise. They’re comfortable, flexible, durable, and stylish all at once, and equally great for dressing up as dressing down. Levi’s is a brand that has become nearly synonymous with jeans, for good reason. With more styles, cuts, and colors available now more than ever, Levi’s has the perfect pair of jeans to fit and flatter every woman and every body type.

What to Look for in Levi’s Jeans

Consider these features when picking out your next pair of Levi’s jeans:

  • Style: Depending on factors like the cut of the leg and the height of the waist, some styles of jeans are better suited to certain body types than others. You can also find jeans with other features like cropped pants or jeans that come pre-ripped. There are even some dressier options out there.
  • Color: Jeans don’t automatically have to equal that classic denim blue color. Besides darker and lighter washes of blue, there are plenty of colors available, whether black, white, or even purple.
  • Machine Washable: Most jeans are machine washable these days, but be sure to check for that factor before purchasing. Some styles and colors have strict temperature, detergent, or drying specifications, so be sure to keep an eye out for those as well.
  • Fastenings: Many jeans have the classic button closure, but it’s not impossible to find other types of fastenings (like a zipper) that feel less restrictive and offer a little more give.

Best Skinny Fit: Levi’s Women’s Wedgie Skinny Jeans

These skinny jeans are just the right combination of flattering and chic, equally well-matched with a sweatshirt or a nice blouse. Machine washable with button closure, these jeans have stretch twill legs that fit nice and snug through the hip and thigh. The jeans come to rest above the waist to give you a little extra support and lift. They’re available in multiple shades of blue as well as lilac, deep purple, and two shades of black, so you don’t have to worry about finding just the right color to suit your wardrobe. Several of these jeans also come pre-ripped if that’s a look you prefer.

Best Bootcut Fit: Levi’s Women’s Curvy Bootcut Jeans

These bootcut jeans are slim through the thighs and hip and loose from the knees down. The mid-rise waistband sits right at your waist, while the mid-stretch denim molds to your body so you don’t need to worry about any awkward gapping. The zipper closure provides a little more give and comfort than the usual button closure. They’re machine washable and available in three shades of blue as well as black and deep indigo. They’re a great choice in jeans for curvier girls.

Best Boyfriend Fit: Levi’s Women’s New Boyfriend Jeans

If you prefer jeans that are more lenient than form-fitting, these boyfriend jeans are the ideal style for you. The waistband is mid-rise with tapered legs that are relaxed around the hip and thigh and tighter around the calves. Available in five different shades of blue, from a classic denim color to a darker or more washed-out look. These jeans look great rolled up an inch or two at the ankles for a little bit of extra flair. They’re machine washable with plus-size and pre-ripped options available.

Best Loose Fit: Levi’s Women’s Balloon Leg Jeans

Here’s a perfect pair of jeans for those days when you’re relaxing at home and want to wear something comfy but less lazy than sweatpants, or you just prefer a looser pair of Levi’s in general. Made of 100 percent cotton, these mid-weight jeans come in a flattering, washed-out shade of pale blue. The fabric is non-stretch compared to the average pair of Levi’s, but the material is so soft and forgiving that you won’t notice the difference. The legs are wide-cut and cropped at the calf with a stylish leather logo band on the waist. The high-rise silhouette gives you some extra support. They have a button closure and are machine washable in cold water.

Best Loose Fit
