She went viral as the titular character of Netflix's Wednesday, and last week, Jenna Ortega celebrated the premiere of her latest venture, the sixth installment of the Scream franchise, and she hosted Saturday Night Live. It's safe to say that Ortega is on fire — and so is her denim.

The 20-year-old actress wore cropped straight-leg jeans in a faded wash from Mother Denim while filming Scream VI, as seen on Instagram. She wore the casual, flattering style with white Converse Chuck Taylors and a striped long-sleeve T-shirt.

Celebs like Meghan Markle and Jennifer Lopez have worn Mother Denim in the past, so, unsurprisingly, it's not exactly cheap. However, the brand's sale section includes discounts up to 50 percent off, and it's also majorly marked down at Gilt.

Although Ortega's exact straight-leg jeans cost $258, you don't have to dish out as much to try the timeless style on for size. Plenty of other pairs feature the same flattering high waist, cropped length, and faded medium blue wash. We rounded up similar straight-leg jeans at Amazon, Old Navy, Madewell, Everlane, Abercrombie, 7 for All Mankind, and Gilt — and prices start at $35.

You can never go wrong with Levi's jeans, and this straight-leg pair is proof. The high-rise fit is ultra-flattering and the medium wash is casually cool.
