Best Skinny Jeans
Travel Fashion Girl help! A reader asks:
Okay ladies, I am looking for your recommendations for a pair of skinny darker wash travel jeans. My struggle is finding something that has stretch and won’t act like a tourniquet around my ankles, won’t sag in the butt after wear, but is also thick enough to keep me warm in England and Ireland. Not sure if any of the pairs I own fit the bill for extended travel. Thanks in advance!
Classic, comfortable jeans are a piece of clothing that should be in every woman’s closet. They’re stylish, timeless, durable, and versatile, and perfect for travel. You don’t have to wash them as often as other clothing items and they mix and match with anything.

Best Skinny Jeans for Travel
An overwhelming number of readers chimed in to say they love Old Navy’s Rockstar jeans and consider them the best travel jeans. One reader said, “I’ve worn leggings underneath for cold days and love how they look with flats, boots & tennis shoes. They’re really affordable too!” Another added, “They are practically the only jeans I’ve owned for 2+ years and have never had an issue.”
They’re available in multiple colors, sizes, rises, and styles. Get a pair in high rise, mid rise, or low rise, as well as dark, light, and washes. And as they’re affordable, you won’t have to worry about destroying a pair even if you’re traveling for an extended period of time.
Like Old Navy, NYDJ offers several styles that could be considered the best travel jeans. All of NYDJ’s jeans are designed with exclusive lift-tuck technology to help flatten the stomach and lift the rear. They’re available in a range of sizes. They’re stretchy, so they’re comfortable enough for long plane rides, but durable enough to be worn for weeks at a time.
One reader says of NYDJ, “I love all their jeans, and they have jeggings and skinnies to bootcuts.” So even if skinny jeans like their popular Ami style aren’t your favorite style, you can find one that suits you.
And another reader adds, “NYDJ are my faves! Never sag, many styles, hold up to wear and tear, and do not make you feel like a sausage casing!”
Levi Straus & Co
Levi has long made jeans that are durable, but they also make stylish options for female travelers. The Signature Stretch style is a favorite travel jean among many of our readers.
One says, “I’ve tried a lot but right now I’m loving the Levi’s Signature stretch skinny jeans. They’ve got a lot of give and are soft like leggings, but the pockets, zipper and construction of jeans.” Another reader added, “I love them because they stretch and give but retain their shape.”
Best of all, this style is inexpensive and available on Amazon in several washes making them one of the most popular options. We recommend stocking up on them before your next trip!
Banana Republic has always made preppy meets sophisticated styles, but they also make some of the best skinny jeans for travelers. They’re made from denim that uses 360-degree stretch so they also contour your shape for a combination of comfort and smooth fit.
One reader said, “I live in Banana Republic jeans. They have nice stretch but hold their form. I almost always wear them on the airplane.” If their comfortable enough to be worn on a flight they must be the perfect travel jeans!
The Prana Kara jean could easily be one of the most comfortable jeans to wear while jetsettin’ around the globe. This is a fitted style made from organic cotton with a soft stretch that allows for breathability and movement. We love the many colors they’re available in, and the fact that they’re made from sustainable materials.
One reader says, “I got the Kara jean and the Brenna pant. I alternated between them during our 3 weeks last October in Scotland, Ireland, and England and they were amazing! Enough stretch to be comfortable during travel, and lightweight for packing.”
So many of our readers rave that Lucky has the most comfortable jeans for travel. The Ava style is the perfect skinny fit with a mid-high rise. They fit slim through the hip and thigh, and the fabric retains its shape all day long.
As one reader says, “Lucky Brand seems to work for me. Look good, thicker than most stretch jeans, not too much stretch and won’t break the bank.” They also offer various styles in plus size, too.
Another reader said, “they’re comfortable enough for long flights, all-day walking, naps, whatever you want. Look amazing too, and can be dressed up or down. They are worth paying full price for but they are often on sale. Try them!”
For additional plus size skinny jeans, one of our readers also recommends Lee Slimming Fit Rebound style. Amazingly comfortable with lots of stretch!
