I feel like I am stuck in an awkward clothes phase right now at age 35. Juniors clothes are not my taste anymore (too rhinestony or clubby) yet regular ladies clothes seem too mature for my personality. Jeans are a major frustration for sure. I used to always buy in juniors because they were the perfect fit and style (even up to the last time I shopped) but today when I went o juniors they literally looked like only 11 year olds could wear those jeans! There wasn’t a size 9 or 11 in the whole section and a 7 looked like it would only fit on a 3rd grader! What happened?
Where is a good place to find reasonably priced, yet still stylish jeans? I.e. not $100 jeans or too clubby design yet not completely plain?

I am not stylish so I suspect my advice will not be useful, but I buy jeans at the Salvation Army store (or similar large secondhand store) because I can try on SO many different brands and it makes it a lot easier to find jeans that are proportioned right for my body. Then if I find a pair I really love, I search for more of them on ebay.

BeeG35: Have you tried Ann Taylor or White House Black Market? Levi’s? The Gap? If you’re looking to spend $50 or less, try Old Navy or American Eagle.

Costco lol. I shop at forever 21 as well, but the clothes there don’t seem to be made very well.

Banana Republic and J Crew – both have really great sales from time to time and the styles are classic

The Limited has been my go-to place for clothes including jeans. I always just shop when there are sales. Loft also has cute stuff although their pants never seem to fit me correctly.

I just go to Old Navy, there are different styles/fits to chose from and I get them when they are on sale for $19!

BeeG35: Ok so im sure many will say its a waste but I only wear designer jeans. Nothing beats a well made pair of jeans in a great wash and Citizens of Humanity is my fave brand. I really like their Racer and Avedon Skinny Ankle styles and I own them both in several different washes. I’d never wear jeans with studs or rhinestones…too old for that and rarely do they flatter anyone of any age. I wear my jeans with tshirts and hoodies on weekends running errands and tanks and cardigans or blouses and blazers when dressing up a little. I get most of my tops from Banaan Republic or JCrew. Anyway I just ordered these two pairs of COH jeans yesterday from Revolve Clothing website.

I buy Not Your Daughter’s Jeans. The name is slightly embarassing (because I’m pretty sure they’re marketed to middle aged women), but they’re super comfortable and don’t look like they’re painted on.

I get Lucky brand straight styles, they seem more fitted but not skinny. And you can get them with embellishment on the pockets or without depending on your style. I think they’re normally around $40 at the outlet near my house…
