Worth it? Good American Jeans

I’ve seen Good American jeans all over social media (anyone else seen Khloe Kardashian rave about them?), and with a $150+ price tag, I’ve always wondered if they were really worth the hype. I got a pair as a surprise for Christmas, and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share my completely honest opinion on whether or not I think they are worth it!

Good American has a ton of denim options (I’m glad I received them as a gift, or I would have been overwhelmed by all of the choices)! The pair that I have is a classic ripped skinny jean (pictured above). Let me start by saying that they are super comfortable. They are almost like a mix between a regular denim and a jegging material – they are stretchier and softer than most denim, but they aren’t quite a jegging. I think that the stretch makes them very flattering. I also got them in my true size, and they fit perfectly. I don’t have to constantly pull them up or adjust them, which I hate having to do with jeans. I feel like they give my legs a nice shape, without feeling restrictive. I also love the rips in the knee, but like I said, they have plenty of styles and colors to fit your preference if you aren’t into the distressing.

One thing I will say about the jeans is that they are a bit on the long side. I am about 5’6, and I prefer to wear them rolled because I think they are a bit too long on me unrolled, which doesn’t look quite as flattering on my body type (it gives more of a straight leg appearance). They do make cropped jeans, which I would probably go with if I ever buy another pair of Good American jeans in the future.

So, my final verdict: my Good American jeans are definitely the nicest jeans I own, but there is nothing that unique about them (in my opinion) that justifies paying close to $200. I don’t think I would personally spend over $100 for them, mainly because I know I can find jeans that are close at a much lower price point. I also just don’t wear jeans as much as I wear leggings, and I always like to invest in things I know I will get a lot of use out of. I do want to point out that they do have some options on their site under $100, which is a much more reasonable (although still an investment). If you do want to invest in a good pair of jeans and know you would wear them a lot, these really are great! I will definitely look into seeing if I can find a cropped pair under $100 the next time I am looking for a good pair of jeans.

By the way, they also have cute, unique activewear! It is also on the pricey side, but I got this cropped half zip hoodie has a gift as well and absolutely love it. It’s currently 25% off!

If you want good jeans at a lower price point, my suggestion is Abercrombie! They are under $100 full price, and go on sale very frequently. Here is how I have styled my Abercrombie Mom Jeans:
