I remember when I exclusively wore boot cut jeans. I used to swear up and down, and I quote, “I will NEVER wear skinny jeans”. LOL! Now, skinny jeans are my UNIFORM.
I also said I would never wear colored skinny jeans either and I owned them in every color in 2013. Oh, and once upon a time I would say the same thing about jumpsuits and rompers. So, you know what they say – never say never!
I have seen a lot of women wearing adorable, loose-fitting jeans. “Boyfriend jeans” if you will. Now, every time I try this I don’t feel like it really fits my body type to have pants that have to be made big enough to be loose around my thighs without overtaking the rest of my frame.
I was scrolling on Instagram and a fabulous Canadian gal @cbstyled posted some jeans from Target. Now, I’ve bought my fair share of clothing from Target, but I usually don’t bother shopping for denim. Probably because I know what works for my figure (skinny jeans) and I have a zillion pairs already.
I didn’t go to buy them, but I did a snappy little double take since I had been influenced by an influencer!
You can’t try on clothing right now, so I had to guess my size (fun.) and hope for the best. Lucky for me, I crushed it! And oh my gosh I LOVE these jeans! They are a little more fitted than I had in mind through the leg, but the mid-rise is super flattering.
I’m also a sucker for a destroyed denim – both effortless and stylish. I haven’t been this excited about a staple purchase in a long time and I have been wearing these CONSTANTLY. Honestly, three ways to wear isn’t even close enough to do these justice.
Oh yeah, did I mention they are THIRTY FREAKING DOLLARS?! Click here to make the best purchase ever.
Some outfits are just made to be accessorized and this is it. A baggy and basic black tee with a front tuck is all you need to lay a foundation for an easy, but eye catching look.
I love wearing heels with distressed denim as we learned with our white tee article. These are no exception. In fact, since they are a lighter wash AND relaxed fit, I like the contrast even more.
Throw on a wide brim hat of your choosing and I promise every other gal at brunch will be envying your style.
Give Me The Blues
Did you ever think ripped jeans could look romantic?! Kevin LOVED this outfit. I think there are a few key things at play. First, the whole look is essentially monochromatic.
Blue has a calming impact that many people are drawn too. Pale blue especially looks great on a tan and feels feminine. I love that I’m using adjectives I would never use to describe the jeans themselves to describe this outfit. That is TRANSFORMATION, PEOPLE!
Honestly, I might stop blogging after this post because I love each outfit even more than the next. How can I possibly love an outfit article more than this one? Ugh. It’s too good.
I got this button down from H&M forever ago and I love the pattern tucked into the front of these jeans. These in particular would look AMAZING with shorter tops since the rise on the waist is higher than most pants.
This laid back look with a structured top and flats helps you look polished, but I can promise you, you’ll be comfy as heck.
Y’all (and I’m from New York and never say that so you know I’m serious). You need these jeans. You will wear them to death in the first week you have them. I am speaking from experience. I never want to take them off and have reached for them constantly since the day I bought them.
