Man, this one was really a surprise to me. Apparently I not only like boyfriend jeans, but I think I “like” like them. Like, wanna pass them a note asking them to go to the homecoming dance with me sort of thing. I’ve tried on a couple of pairs to see how I felt about the whole trend, but I always looked like one of the ladies in the Mom Jeans SNL commercial. The waist was too high, the hips too puffy. All I needed was the patchwork quilted vest and a minivan and I was set. However, I saw these jeans and I was actually much more interested in the shredded quality than anything else, so I thought I’d give them a try. Just another case of a good cut and fit making all the difference in a category—I loved them! They aren’t for every occasion (and you do have to be a bit more specific with the shoe choices), but I’ve been wearing them for four days straight and I think we have a good thing going. The slightly dropped waist and looser fit just feels so more relaxed than a super tight jean legging and it’s a nice change for sure.

It’s definitely true that some clothing categories will always be a firm no for me (anything navy blue, nautical themed, or loafers), but it is fun to broaden the horizons a bit from time to time and let a new pair of jeans into my heart. Come on in boyfriend jeans, the door is now wide open!
