We've rounded up the best places to buy a great pair of jeans for under $50! With our picks, you can find the right fit and style to flatter your figure and complete every spring look.


Yes, Amazon sells clothing ... including great, affordable jeans! What could be better than ordering stylish denim with quick shipping at the same place you can order a wacky egg maker or the best travel mug ever?

Levi's practically invented jeans as we know them today and have continued to update and improve and expand their offerings through the years. We love the fun, distressed look of these slimming skinny jeans.

The "mom jean" look is here to stay. This affordable pair we found on Amazon is a great way to try out the trend.

Not quite jeans, not quite sweatpants — these elastic-waist cotton pants are comfy, fun and casual.


While Nordstrom is known for premium denim, they also carry a few lower-priced brands. Plus, frequent sales bring more expensive brands, like Topshop, Madewell and others, down to more affordable prices.

Gray jeans don't get as much credit as they deserve. This neutral pair might look great with just about everything in your closet.

Rolled cuffs are in. We'd follow Nordstrom's styling cues and wear them with cute, backless loafers, too!

From Calvin Klein to Lucky Brand, Earl Jeans and more, Macy's carries tons of denim options that ring in under $50. You'll find classics as well as trendy styles — fringe hems, buttons and updated colors.

The fringed hem trend came back the past few years. We love this version from I.N.C. in a cool olive green.

Jeans can be both causal and dressy at the same time, making them an enduring wardrobe staple. This cropped flare pair has fun stud details and a frayed hem, perfect for pairing with pumps and a blouse for a night out.

Flared white jeans are great for pairing with breezy and lightweight sweaters and tops.


Walmart is great for buying just about everything on a budget. They carry a variety of denim from well-known brands including Levi Strauss, Lee, and Jordache.

Lace-up details can be intimidating, but here, along the side-seam of a pair of black skinny jeans, it is infinitely wearable.

Light wash denim signals spring. We love these easy, simple jeans that have a straight leg perfect for rolling and cuffing with sandals and wedges.

Versatile boyfriend jeans can be dressed up with wedges and a pretty floral top for dinner on the town or dressed down with sneakers and a tank top.


For cool jeans at unbeatable prices, H&M is the best. These jeans may only last a few seasons, but sometimes that’s all you need. These jeans work especially great for women who tend to fluctuate in size or like to buy new, trendy styles each year.

These cropped, wide-leg white jeans are on-trend for spring. Pair them with sneakers on the weekends for a funky-casual look, or wedges and a pretty top for Easter brunch.

These ripped jeans from H&M will let you get in on the vintage denim trend without spending a fortune for an actual pair of vintage jeans.

Ankle-cropped jean can be so flattering, and these have a classic, dark wash that will never go out of style.

Affordable black jeans that won't fade are hard to find — unless you've discovered these Rockstar jeans.

Brighten up your spring wardrobe with this pair of colorful, olive green straight jeans.
