Best jeans under $50

Lucky Magazine

There's no easier fashion foundation than a great pair of jeans. Find some you love, and you'll wear them over and over—winter and summer, year after year, with absolutely everything. But as tried-and-true as your most perennial pair may be, there's always room in your closet for more. Colored, printed and textured denim is here to stay, and it's time to put candy-hued, bold-printed, and wax-coated styles in heavy rotation along with all your light- and dark-wash favorites. Just in time for jeans season, check out 20 pairs we love.

      A former Texas middle-school teacher who was impregnated by a 13-year-old student has been sentenced to 10 years in prison. Alexandria Vera, 25, was facing up to 30 years behind bars after pleading guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child in November. She admitted to police that a relationship that started with Instagram messages between her and the boy blossomed into a romance — one that the boy’s family approved of. A judge in the 209th District Court in Houston said during Vera’s sentencing hearing on Friday that he does not believe the former English teacher is a danger to children or a classic pedophile, the Houston Chronicle reported.

He used a device that rolls a black sheet across his license plate with the push of a button.  It even had the Florida Highway Patrol doing a double-take. “We've seen people hang out the back of cars to put their hand over it, we've seen motorcycles take different routes through the express lanes to avoid the camera, people intentionally cover their tags, semi trucks block their tags,” says Sgt.
