For some people wearing jeans in the summer is just asking for having a day of discomfort, but for me I love jeans and quite frankly am not always in the mood for shorts, skirts, or dresses. However, there is only one condition to which I wear them. They have to be a girlfriend or boyfriend fit.
As much as I LOVE wearing jeans, I am not willing to fully sacrifice my comfort. That’s why I compromise. The girlfriend cut is perfect if you like a little bit more of a fitted feel at the hips but like the looseness throughout the leg. This is compared to the boyfriend cut which is not as fitted at the hips and through the leg. I originally bought these jeans pictured above from H&M about two years ago so they unfortunately are no longer available, but there are so many girlfriend fits now that it’s okay!
Here is why I think you should have at least one pair for summer:
- Comfortable- comfort is always #1 in my book. I like to look good and feel good in what I am wearing. I have traveled in these jeans, worn them to work, etc. which that leads to point #2…
- Versatile- my favorite word when it comes to fashion. I am all about a balanced and multifaceted wardrobe, which means that a particular piece must have more than one function (ex: day to night, casual versus dressy).
- Easy- these jeans make dressing for the day feel simple and relaxed. The easiest way to automatically look good with just a cute top and sneakers. I repeat: requires little thought.
