The Best Express Jeans & How They Fit

Updated: Mar 14

Here is my top 10 list of favorite Express Denim, in order, regardless of venue, event or anything other than straight up comfort, style! For visual reference, I am 5’2 and a size 6 [28″ waist]. You can shop the post by clicking on the title of each one. Full disclosure, some of these styles have sold out, but I have tried enough to know, that the similar ones I’ve linked in replace of them, would still fit the profile of that style!

Returns are super easy too; you can send back in the mail or return to store!

1. Super High Waisted Black Straight Ankle Jeans

These are so soft and comfortable with a relaxed fit. They’re easily dressed up or down. They run true to size and this is the regular length. 

2. High Waisted Skinny Jeans

I am a 26″ inseam, so I will usually buy the regular and cut them to right above my ankle bone, if the “short” are only a 25″. Waist is true to size.

3. High Waisted Straight Ankle Jeans

These are great to wear casually or with heeled booties out to brunch. True to size.
4. Modern Straight Jeans
These jeans. I can’t say enough great things. They can easily transition from brunch to date night and I love the distressed hem. 

5. High Waisted Black Supersoft Skinny Jeans

These are on repeat in my wardrobe. I wear these to school and on a night out. The high waist and shape is so flattering and this is the regular length. They’re true to size and extremely comfortable, while holding it all in! One of the best features, is they don’t really fade with all the washing and drying!

6. Super High Waisted Ripped Mom Jeans

These were my first pair of Express jeans and I was sold! These are true to size and regular length. The “mom” look provides structure with some room to breathe. 

7. Colored Jeans

I have so many pair of colored denim from Express. Honestly, every time I see them pop up, I snag them because they’re so good for work. [I teach] and it’s a great way to stay comfy but jazz up an outfit and not be breaking any rules by wearing “jeans”. 

8. The Cropped Flare

They’re so versatile, super flexible and comfy. I am true to size in all of them, in the regular length as well.
Ok, I left the best for last…THE PULL ON. You’d never know these jeans are elastic waist, pull ons. They are such a soft and flexible material and can be dressed up easily. I am a true medium.

9. High Waisted Knit Supersoft Medium Wash Pull-On Skinny Jeans

With the exception of one pair of jeans that I kept from Wantable, I only have Express jeans in my closet. I have about 30 pair but figured I would try and narrow down my faves for now. I get true to size in pretty much all of them and the regular length. If you read the sizing details, Express is so clear about inseam length, which is super helpful. I took a measuring tape to mine and now know exactly when to order short or when to order the regular and cut them to the right length. I hope this helps guide you in the right direction if you’ve been wanting to take the leap into the world of Express Denim and feel free to comment with any questions you may have! The best is when they have sales for $40 denim etc because they’re high quality and worth the price!
