Here's a secret: Looking amazing isn't actually that hard. All it takes is the right pair of jeans. For spring 2020, designers Brandon Maxwell and Hedi Slimane at Celine embraced this ethos, showcasing easy-breezy looks centered on expertly executed denim. The looks were simple yet impeccably styled: Jeans topped with smart blazers, crisp button-downs, and collegiate sweatshirts, proving that, rather than looking dressed-down, a great pair of jeans can elevate your whole look.

But what raises one pant above another? In the eternal quest to find the perfect pair of jeans, is three- (almost four-) digit denim worth the price tag?

Going designer over mass-market means paying for quality craftsmanship sure to last you season after season. A classic style, fit, and wash will make your jeans a wardrobe staple, rather than a one-season-and-done trend piece. Once you invest in a pair, use it as a base for all of your nonchalant spring looks, whether it be rocking a sweatshirt over a frilly collared sweater (a la Celine) or an ode to Americana with a blazer and a button down. Keep scrolling to shop our top denim picks for spring and get inspiration for a myriad of effortless denim-forward 'fits.
