Shopping: Lust vs. Must – Biker Zip Jeans

I love when a good lust vs. must falls in my lap. It’s been a while since I shared one of these but this biker-zip jeans one was too good to pass up.

I originally saw these zip detail jeans at J.Crew and I will confess to buying them BUT then I stumbled on this WAY cheaper pair at Old Navy, snagged them too. And after wearing them a couple times,  I think I prefer them. They fit really well and sit nicely on the hips, meaning not a lot of tugging/adjusting when sitting and standing. If I hadn’t already taken the J.Crew ones to be altered, I would probably return them.

When it comes to trendier pieces like this, I love sticking to lower cost options to test drive the trend. Then if it sticks around or you really fall in love with it, you can splurge on a pricier item. Gray denim and zip-detail denim are everywhere right now but if you’re not willing to shell out $100+ for a pair, check out these options below. I will say that the lusts are not super pricey just more than you might want to shell out for an item like this.

    I LOVEEEEEE biker-style jeans for the fall!! I usually like to “save” when it’s a trendier item for a season, but I do have a weakness for premium denim 🙂

      I know EXACTLY what you mean. I went double down and have the J.Crew pair and the Old Navy pair – they are both great. You’ll love either pair.
