Tightwad Tuesday: J Brand Low Rise Capri Legging for Less

Lovers, to the left you will find J Brand’s blissful Low Rise Capri Legging in White; to the right take a gander at le GAP’s classy Cropped Legging Jeans in White.

Though the glorious GAP pair are ever so slightly longer in length than the J Brand; for a mere $59.50, in comparison to the $158.00 needed to scoop up a pair of the luscious Low Rise Capri Legging, they are a super steal for the frugalista, as they feature a full five-pocket construction (whereas J. Brand’s beauties feature faux front pockets), and leave the budget babe with enough cash to spare to scoop up one or all five of the fabulous colors available (white, ecru, cinnabar red, true black, and gray)!

Are you having a tightwad moment darlings, or are you plagued with a craving to splurge?


Fashionably yours!

Love the white pants...but i also want that body :)

Joanne said...

Definitely the Gap. I like the length better, and what great colors. The ecru and gray are really nice too.

LadyLiz said...

In theory I like the GAP ones better. But lately they've been getting crappy in their fit.

Twenty.Something said...

Great find!! I totally want to rock those with tan wedges... perfection! Love.

janettaylor said...

Hehe! I love 'em. I have got few pairs of capri leggings. :)

Oh wow, what a steal!!! I too like the length better, and they are ridiculously chic! Such an amazing find, Erika... these posts are genius.

Oooooh heeeey! How did you know I've been needing some skinny white pants?!? I just bought a pair of Seven for All Mankind white jeggings, but I about had to cut off half my thigh to get them on. (Any jeggings that I have to jump up and down and wiggle to get them on are probably out of the question. My butt DID look really good though....) So I'm returning them--those GAP ones look much cuter!

fun fact of the day: guys love girls in white pants. they say girls always have the best butts who wear white pants!

xoxoxxooxoxooxooooo

Audrey Allure said...

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

The Gap ones are good for me!

Amazing find girl!

She is Sara said...

Natasha said...

I just really like the Gap version. They're longer so they could pass for pencil jeans and the white is so much more muted than the neon white that the J. Brand is trying to pull off. Hope you have a good Tuesday, E.

cool GAP find!

If only I could get my fat A** in white capris, lol

Happy Tuesday.

Cindy Whitehead said...

So into white and also bright colored jeans right now! This time I'd go w/Gap - love the length and fit!

Rachel said...

Haha, the concept of wearing white jeans is a bit daunting to me; I generally get my clothing fussed up as it is. Definitely going with GAP on this one!

Megan said...

ugh i wish i could sport white and not do a disgrace to my larger than normal butt! these rock!

StyleID said...

Ohhh, I love GAP so even if they would cost more than the J Brand I will still get them.

Maddy said...

If I dare wear white capris again, the Gap would be the pair for me :)

Haute World said...

Definitely the GAP. White capris aren't something that will last long regardless of the quality. And I'm sure if the length is an issue, shortening the GAP ones won't cost much more. Great find!

Dancing Branflake said...

I would love to get these in the different colors. Oh man, I have a coupon for Gap and I just might now how to use it.

Punctuation Mark said...

i wish i could wear these but my latin body (behind) never allows me to... ha!

Diana said...

Could never pull off white pants...but they are sexy!! :) Thanks for the birthday wishes love! Enjoy your day.

..R May A.. said...

White pants aren't for me, but another great comparison - I tend to splurge on jeans in general though!! x

AH said...

i like the length of the GAP ones better, so much more flattering..

frenchleaveblog said...

Most definitely Gap although I'm not much of a white capri person. White makes me look heavier most of thetimes ! :(

MissNeira said...

Oh if I only looked good in white pants!

xoxo Miss Neira

Tights Lover said...

Really, really like the GAP pair...but...I'm a designer jeans addict and therefore must defer to JBrand!

Oh to Be a Muse said...

i really love the Gap pair a lot more. the fact that they are a bit longer and the five pockets is what did it for me.

Sherin said...

I love these. I saw a friend in white trousers recently and they looked really great. I love the GAP ones.

Fashion Imperative said...

Gap!!!!

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

great find, darling, as usual! hope you're having a nice week! xo

Sandy a la Mode said...

i totally need me a white pair of pants for spring!! although i should prob lose some weight first before wearing them!!

ryan said...

I like the length of the Gap ones better, so I would choose the cheaper one!

naomemandeflores said...

White pants? Not a big fan here. So I guess I have to say no for both brands.

:(

Love,

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

GAP all the way! great buy...xo

Josie said...

I love the Gap ones -- although I'm far too accident-prone to wear white pants!

Cafe Pasadena said...

My vote is for The Gap: look better in style & price!

Clare said...

Good find esp because something like this should not be a cause for overspending.

E said...

I LIVE in white jeans! I'm going to have to invest in another pair!

Nadia Aboulhosn said...

in love with white jeans!

Ruby Mines said...

I like the length of the GAP cropped pant more than the Jbrand- those are just too short for this season. Great find!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

gap! though white denim and my tush aren't always best friends!!! I like the idea of it though... especially with a nude top.

Samantha Elisabeth said...

Ah! Absolutely loving this find!

karen said...

I clock in just under 5'2 and appreciate anything that gives the allusion of height. I think the GAP pants are the way to go.

Burning Skies said...

Loving the gap version more!

Love this post Erika! I have a pair of cargo pants from the gap and they fit better than a more expensive pair--I'm all for the Gap.

Gap has been stepping their game up lately. I was very impressed with their selection in the stores the other day.

I'm usually not a fan of white pants but those GAP jeans are HOT!
