What Makes Designer Denim So Pricey—and Is It Worth the Cost?

Those Seven jeans are super cute, but they'll put a big dent in your wallet.

Denim shopping is an all-around nightmare: Each brand fits differently, there are so many washes and cuts, and trends like J-NCOs come back for seemingly no reason. But the single most frequent gripe among denim-laden ladies is this: Why does a good pair of jeans cost so dang much?!

“Premium denim costs more because you’re paying for the quality of the craftsmanship and the superior construction,” says designer Sarah Ahmed of DL1961 Premium Denim. That means you’re getting higher-quality denim fabrics, technological innovations, and a better overall fit.  But is it really worth paying more than double what it would cost to snag a pair of jeans at someplace like Target or H&M?

Ahmed is, of course, biased, but she says it is. “You want denim that isn’t going to lose its shape and stretch out after a few wears,” she says. “Great premium denim will retain the same shape and feel as the first day you bought them.”

So how do you know if the jeans you’re eyeing are up to snuff? “Be sure to check the fabrication when buying any denim, especially premium denim,” says Ahmed. You can do this by looking at the care tags on your jeans. Look for mostly cotton (95 to 98 percent) with a little Spandex or elastane for that comfortable, forgiving fit.

Amri Kibbler, a former fashion editor and the founder Heymama, a community for creative mothers, many of whom live in their denim, estimates her jeans collection at almost 30 pairs. She agrees with Ahmed, saying that, “premium denim costs more simply because the fabrics used cost more, as do some of the more innovative washes. It can add up.”

Kibbler says that most cheap denim stretches out easily, so it has a shorter lifespan. And with some inexpensive dark washes, they’ll rinse out and fade a little quicker.  “But there are great options in the market for trendy, seasonal denim, such as distressed and ripped jeans or overalls,” says Kibbler. “There are a lot under-$80 options that look great from brands like ASOS, Zara, and GAP.”

The takeaway? Buy inexpensive jeans when they’re a trendy wash or cut that you don’t think you’ll wear more than one or two seasons—but don’t be scared to invest in a designer pair that fits you perfectly. If you wear a $200 pair of jeans more than 200 times over the years they last you, you’re spending less than $1 per wear—so worth it.

How to Never, EVER Get Caught with a Camel Toe

Because no one needs to see all that.

We’ve all seen (or experienced) it: You’re wearing your favorite pair of yoga pants or that floral romper (perfect for 80+-degree weather) and…hello, camel toe, that pesky “paw print” that acts like an arrow directing everyone’s eyes straight to your lady parts.

What Causes Camel Toe?

“The main cause is improper fit,” says stylist Mia Tucker Williams. “It happens when pants are too tight and/or too thin in the crotch region, which leads to unwanted cleavage in that area.” The same thing can happen with shorts and rompers.

How to Avoid it

Pick your panties carefully. Williams’ biggest tip for avoiding camel toe is to never go commando when wearing thin, stretchy fabrics. Instead, she recommends wearing thicker seamless panties, which are less likely to shift into the folds within the vaginal area (nice visual, right?). Instead, they’ll give you a consistently smooth appearance, hiding lines and creases.

Pay attention to fit and fabric. Avoid yoga pants or tights that are thin enough to see through, and look for workout bottoms with a wider elastic waistband that hits at the navel or right below it. Just as with panties, pants that are made of thinner fabrics have more give and flexibility, which make them more likely to slide between your legs and cause camel toe.  A wider waistband will grip (support) your waist better than a thinner waistband so you aren’t constantly pulling them up and creating an inadvertent camel toe look.

When choosing rompers, Williams tells clients to stay away from bottoms with a shorter rise, especially if they fit snug around the waist. “Go for pieces with a more relaxed fit through the waistline,” says Williams. “This will allow for movement along your midsection, which helps to create more flexibility and breathability in the crotch area.”

If Your Vag Really Likes to Eat Your Clothes

Grab a panty liner. Williams recommends wearing a panty liner if you’re prone to crotch cleavage. Place the liner in your underwear horizontally (instead of vertically), and then wrap and secure it around the seat of your underwear. This will give you three additional layers of protection against camel toe.

Always look for lining. When shopping for workout gear, look for leggings that have a polyester blend (such as spandex or elastane) or pants with a lining built into the crotch.  The lining adds another barrier between your pants and lady parts—and the more layers between the two, the less likely the fabric will be to slide into the area.

Avoid linen. You should also steer clear of 100 percent polyester and really thin fabrics. Linen and polyester are more prone to wrinkling, and that’s not a good look in an area prone to camel toe.

Darker colors will also be more flattering. You can never go wrong with black (it’ll make the crotch cleavage less obvious), and if all else fails, pair leggings with longer tops that hit right at the top of the thigh area or right below your bottom to cover camel toe.

New Research Says People Who Wear This Type of Jeans Are the Happiest

You know, because your choice of denim totally dictates your mood.

Love your skinny jeans? You probably love your life, too. At least that’s what a new survey from private research company Qualtrics suggests, according to a story from the U.K.’s Daily Mail Online. According to the findings, the fit of your jeans are a giveaway on how happy, confident, and even environmentally friendly you are.

The survey suggests that people who wear skinny jeans are nine percent more likely to report “the highest levels of happiness” than people who don’t wear skinnies.

And in not shocking at all news: People who say they’re “extremely or very confident” are 12 percent more likely to be fans of skinnies.

It’s also not surprising that 33 percent of people who wear skinny jeans also ride motorcycles since, last we checked, flares and rapidly spinning tires aren’t exactly best buds.

But the survey found some weirder stats, too: For example, fans of skinny jeans are more likely to sit in the aisle than by the window on airplanes (so they can stretch out and avoid cutting off their leg circulation?). They’re also eight percent less likely to be into Apple computers than PCs.

People in big cities are also twice as likely to wear skinny jeans as people in small cities because…no clue.

RELATED: How to Wear Boyfriend Jeans

But while all of that is fun, apparently skinny jeans make us jerks when it comes to saving the planet. The survey found that people who report recycling the most are seven percent less likely to wear skinnies. 

Worth pointing out: Qualtrics doesn’t appear to be sharing any info on how many people actually participated in this survey, so we have no idea how reliable (or not) it is.

But if you’re planning to go to a rally for the environment any time soon, maybe leave your skinnies at home. Or dare to be different—your choice!
