Particularly in fall and winter, I wear jeans nearly every day; and while I would by no means consider myself a denim aficionado, I'm very picky about it and have found that the simplest jeans are often the hardest to find, at least at a reasonably affordable price. (In fact, that's true of a lot of things.) While light wash and black jeans are pretty ubiquitous these days, I've had trouble finding a dark wash that I actually like where all the other elements I need (no distressing, not super-skinny or stretchy) are present, until now.
Need Supply's in-house line, Need, includes a denim line that I've had my eye on for a while. Instagram style star Reese Blutstein once told me that they're the best jeans for vertically challenged folks like us, and given that she is pretty much the most stylish, coolest person on my feed, I listened. And the brand's latest wash, Judd, will most likely get me to pull the trigger. With its high waist and cropped and straight fit, the "cousin fit" is generally ideal. Add to that the perfectly simple dark blue wash, and these are pretty much the jeans of my dreams.
Need cousin fit in Judd wash, $185, available at Need Supply.
