While scrolling through TikTok one night, I came across a video of a woman showing off a new pair of jeans she had just bought – which just so happened to be. very The expensive pair of jeans I had been eyeing for the past few months. The dupe looked just as good as the original and when I clicked on the link and saw that they were from Target and on sale for $19, I was shocked. I saw that the jeans had over 100 five-star reviews, so I immediately added them to my cart. Ever since I got them in the mail, I’ve been wearing Wild Fable’s Super-High Rise Straight Jeans ($19, originally $22) nonstop.
This was the first pair of jeans I ever bought from Target, and although the reviews were glowing, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I tried them on for the first time. Fortunately for me, the reviews rang true. For me to truly fall in love with a pair of jeans, they have to check all my boxes — and these jeans certainly do. They’re cute, comfortable, and high-waisted — an absolute must for me (sorry, low-rise jeans will never come back in style in my lifetime). They have an on-trend straight leg, and they weren’t too long or too short—they hit just below my ankle, which is what I was looking for.
I’ve been wearing these jeans for a few weeks now, and my favorite thing about them is probably how versatile they are. I pair them with almost everything in my closet, and they’re a winner every time – they go perfectly with my favorite Amazon bodysuits, and the dark wash makes them great for dressing up or down. One of my favorite ways to dress them up for a night out is to style them with a black blazer and my favorite Amazon heels. I have been wearing them with my favorite dad sneakers when I need to pop out of the house to run errands.
When I say these jeans are comfortable, I mean it. I own a few pairs of jeans that I will no I tend to sit for long periods of time, but I wore these jeans for a full day of work from home and they truly felt as comfortable as my favorite yoga pants. Some reviewers have mentioned that these jeans actually feel like jeggings because they are so comfortable, and I have to agree. These have become my go-to jeans for dinner dates — not only do they look amazing, but they’re stretchy enough that I don’t have to worry about them feeling too tight after I eat, and there’s a distressed version ($25 ) for example.
To keep my new favorite pair of jeans in tip-top shape, I wash them cold and hang them to dry. I’ve washed them a few times, and the color is as vibrant as the day I got it; I have had no problems with shrinking or pilling (one of my biggest pet peeves). Overall, I couldn’t be happier with my purchase, and I know I’ll be wearing these jeans nonstop for months to come.
