I have been asked by a few dedicated denim readers over time for my opinion on cheaper denim brands. I know here at DenimBlog we mainly only deal with premium denim as usually these are the brands which pay most attention to fit, details, denim and washes, however, I also understand that not everyone can afford the price tag that premium denim comes with. It is usually in the region of $180 and upwards, so it can be quite daunting to spend so much money on a pair of jeans.
This leaves you with two options, both of which I do myself. You can either buy your premium denim in the sale or on deal websites as outlined in my Cheap Designer Jeans post or you can opt for a cheaper denim option. When you do choose to go with the latter option, not all of the brands will have a good fit, a great quality denim or feel really nice to wear, so (like I have been asked) I am giving you my opinion on the jeans I wear and the jeans that I think are a great purchase for under $100! As you know, I am really fussy and particular when it comes to having great fitting jeans, so hopefully you will like this post as I am listing the cheaper brands that are definitely worth the money.
Candice Swanepoel wore a pair of slouchy Levi’s with a bikini top while on set for a Victoria’s Secret shoot. Candice was joined by fellow Victoria’s Secret model, Doutzen Kroes, while the two shot scenes for the magazine in Miami, FL. I wonder if these are Candice’s own jeans? I love that they have zippers up the back of the legs and are so worn in, they look like they’re vintage.
Diane Kruger catches a flight out of Toronto after wrapping up promotional duties for her film Inescapable. Diane attended the premier of the film with Joshua Jackson before jetting off to New York. I wonder if we’ll see her at a few shows for fashion week?
Diane layered a light wash Levi’s denim vest over a tight striped dress and finished the look with heels and a hat. Normally, I’m not the biggest fan of denim vests, but there’s something about this outfit that I really like. I think the rest of the outfit is a bit dressier which keeps the entire look polished.

Alessandra Ambrosio celebrated the Holiday weekend at the beach with her family, including her infant son! We haven’t seen any photos of him since he was born, I’m sure he’s just as adorable as his sister!
Alessandra wore a pair of Levi’s denim shorts with a simple tank top and a Rail’s denim K.C. Vest with silver collar tips. We see Alessandra out in shorts quite often, but she always look so effortlessly put together. I think when it comes to denim shorts, cut off Levi’s are still one of my favorite styles, they always look perfectly worn in.
