Anything goes when it comes to denim now — low rise, high rise, cargo, colorful, patterned, skinny, straight, baggy — and in the Wild West that is currently Jeans, I’ve felt both unsure and exhilarated.
Since there’s no coherent, singular prescription for denim, the task is on each of us individually. It makes us reflect and ask ourselves, “What am I actually drawn to? What feels good to me?”
One cut I’m particularly drawn to right now is these tapered mom jeans. They are nothing new, but they are slouchy and comfortable and just the right amount of oversized for me. As we move into warmer weather, the tapered leg is really speaking to me, more so than a straight leg.
(Besides these tapered mom jeans, I also find myself curious about super wide leg baggy jeans, although I haven’t tried any yet.)
I actually love what’s happening in denim right now — the way anything goes — and I like to think that it’s the end of dressing to “keep up”. It’s an exciting time! Branch out and try something a little different…or…don’t. :) Wear what you love, wear what feels good to you.
