Denim enthusiasts can be quite fanatical about shopping secondhand for jeans. But sometimes, you don’t want to do all of that digging. Consider going vintage-inspired. One of our favorites in this category is Everlane’s The ’90s Cheekys, which I compared to “jeans seen on ’90s sitcom moms” in our guide to the best mom jeans. As part of the brand’s weekend Denim Sale, a pair is currently almost 50 percent off — marked down from $108 to $58.
These are made from a stiffer denim than many of the stretch jeans on the market and with a slightly stonewashed finish. Former Strategist senior manager of audience development Mia Leimkuhler (who happens to be a devoted Everlaneologist) calls the jeans “sturdy and rigid” — and because they are made of 100 percent cotton and don’t have any added stretch, they will form to your body for a perfect fit over time. “Strangers have stopped me on the street to ask me where I got my pair,” Leimkuhler says. The ’90s Cheekys are available in sizes 23 through 33, and you can choose from 26.5-, 28.5-, or 30.5-inch inseams. Just remember that this is a 72-hour-only deal, so the clock is ticking.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
