Honestly, it’s been a minute since I’ve thought about wearing pants. (My preferred outfits consist of a solid rotation between pajamas and workout leggings.) But after months of wearing the same sweats and leggings 24/7, it might be time to pull my favorite denim out of retirement. If you, like me, are looking for a fresh pair, Amazon is offering steep discounts on DL1961’s jeans right now.
If the brand sounds familiar, you can thank Meghan Markle. The former Duchess of Sussex has worn this brand everywhere from her new home on Vancouver Island to a trip to South Africa to a visit to a British bakery.
“Simi kunye kulesisimo” – ‘We stand together in this moment’ The Duchess of Sussex has tied a ribbon at the site where 19-year-old Cape Town student Uyinene Mrwetyana was murdered last month, to pay her respects and to show solidarity with those who have taken a stand against gender based violence and femicide. Over the last month in Capetown, protests erupted through the streets in outrage over GBV in South Africa. The Duke and Duchess had been following what had happened from afar and were both eager to learn more when they arrived in South Africa. The Duchess spoke to the mother of Uyinene this week to relay their condolences. Visiting the site of this tragic death and being able to recognise Uyinene, and all women and girls effected by GBV (specifically in South Africa, but also throughout the world) was personally important to The Duchess. Uyinene’s death has mobilised people across South Africa in the fight against gender based violence, and is seen as a critical point in the future of women’s rights in South Africa. The Duchess has taken private visits and meetings over the last two days to deepen her understanding of the current situation and continue to advocate for the rights of women and girls.

It’s not hard to see why Meghan loves these jeans so much. The New York–based brand is dedicated to making jeans that are equal parts comfortable and stylish. Plus, its special Instasculpt technology is designed to lift and sculpt your body, making these jeans look and feel good.
While Amazon’s Big Style Sale has plenty of great deals on clothing, accessories, and shoes, it’s rare to find royal-approved jeans on sale for under $100. Whether you’re on the hunt for skinny jeans, a wide-leg style, or some summer-ready denim shorts, you’re bound to find a new style worth adding to your closet—for a steep discount, nonetheless.
