I like getting value for my dollar and I’ve heard that Old Navy is perfect for the budget-minded shopper. Old Navy women’s jeans are all under $35. Each has its own catchy name and most come in a variation of leg styles, such as boot-cut, skinny, flare, wide and trouser. There are also several types of washes. Not all variations are available in every store, but you can find everything online at OldNavy.com.
I took a recent trip to my local Old Navy store to check out their jeans selection. Old Navy stores tend to be large and jam-packed with colorful clothing. I often get overwhelmed in such stores, but Old Navy organizes their sections really well. All of their jeans are located in one area, making selection easy. Before making a visit to your local Old Navy store, I highly recommend taking a look at the Old Navy online jeans fit guide. There you can see all of their available jean styles and sizes, and can even read some fashion tips.
Most Old Navy women’s jeans are stretchy, using a blend of cotton/spandex or cotton/polyester/spandex. The stretch enables the jeans to hug your curves and give in all the places that need it. There are 100% cotton jeans available as well. Old Navy jeans have a tag-free embroidered label that allows for an itch-free fit. Old Navy offers jeans in sizes 0 through 20. Several jeans are available in short, regular, and long inseams in stores, with petite, tall, and plus sizes accessible online.
Old Navy has jeans with a mid-rise (sits right below the waist), low-rise (sits on your hips), and classic-rise (sits on your waistline). If you don’t have a preference, I recommend trying on each different rise to see what feels and looks best. Even if you think low-rise jeans push your boundaries, just try them on in the privacy of your dressing room and turn around. Low-rise jeans give you a great looking rear-end! However, your own personal comfort is the most important thing.
If you have curves, as many of us do, you’ll appreciate the extra room in the front and rear of Old Navy jeans. I, however, found it a bit troublesome and had to drop down a size. Once I did this, the jeans fit perfectly. After a little researching online and asking an Old Navy store clerk, I found that it is a good idea to try on stretch jeans that are a size smaller than your regular size. Stretch jeans tend to give over time and may become loose and baggy. So if you are a size 14, try on a 12. As long as it’s not too tight and you feel comfortable, this may be your best option for longer-lasting jeans.
I like the simple and clean style of Old Navy jeans. You won’t find fancy back-pocket stitching or shiny appliques on these jeans. I tried on a size 12-long in three styles including The Flirt, The Sweetheart, and The Diva. All three styles are enzyme-washed making them extremely soft. The Flirt boot-cut has a straight fit in the hips and thighs and comes in a mid-rise. I appreciated the classic five pocket styling and the fit, but The Flirt wasn’t as snug in the hips and thighs as I would have liked. The relaxed fit and classic-rise of The Sweetheart boot-cut jean flattened out my rear and gave me a front pooch when I sat down. I liked the coin-pocket and two-tone topstitching, but overall, The Sweetheart jean didn’t fit well. The Diva’s low-rise and slim fit in the hips and thighs accentuated my rear-end perfectly. I prefer the The Diva boot-cut leg over the skinny. The skinny leg felt a bit claustrophobic and I don’t appreciate the tapered look. The Diva boot-cut jean is my favorite pair I tried on and I plan to buy quite a few of them!
Old Navy women’s jeans are a simpler alternative to expensive name brand jeans. They have a fit for every figure and you just can’t beat the price. Whether your style is trendy or conservative, you can definitely find the right pair of jeans for you at Old Navy.
