As if Kate Middleton looking sleek in a pair of J Brand 811 mid-rise skinny jeans wasn’t inspiration enough, The Wall Street Journal wrote an article today about the growing number of $300 jeans on the market, and did the Fashion Math to see how much markup exists…which, at $116, is pretty gross.
PSST: Right now is the best time to buy jeans while everyone else is too preoccupied with swimsuits and flat sandals? Do your future self a favor and get those jeans you know you’ll be coveting come September now, while they’re all lonely and marked down.
