I’m baaaack! I am home in San Francisco and back with the swing of things. New York Fashion Week was a dream come true, but I’ll delve into that later this week. Before I left for the Big Apple, I searched the internet top to bottom for destroyed girlfriend jeans. The search ended on a high note with this pair from Express but then I forgot to pack them. Typical. Anyway, during the wild goose chase I learned a couple of things about girlfriend jeans that are worth sharing. Hear me out.
Express is a great place to shop if you often alter your clothes. Most pants are instock in sizes 00-18, and available in petite, short, regular, and tall lengths. Apparently I do not disclose my height often enough because when I met my blogger friends in person they all said, “you are so petite – you look taller in your photos.” So, I am shouting it from the rooftops, I am 5 feet tall and the tailor is my bff. No really though, I need to learn how to hem my own clothes!
When you shop for destroyed girlfriend jeans look for a cotton and spandex blend. You need the stretch or they will continue to rip as you wear them. I remember demolishing a pair of Free People jean shorts because my foot got stuck in the tears as I pulled them on. Always size down. Even if you think there is no way that you could fit a smaller size, just do it. I ordered three pairs of these jeans before getting the size right. They are referred to as “girlfriend” fit for a reason. Ideally you want them to be slightly roomy in the hips yet flattering on your figure. Today we feature a slouchy sweater, a moto jacket, and black ankle boots. Check back for more ways to style your destroyed girlfriend jeans.
