I have never been comfortable wearing a t-shirt and jeans. Technically my middle name is “Marina,” but I think it should really be, “Extra” (insert laughing emoji). If you recall, the last time I wore a t-shirt and jeans it was in addition to larger-than-life feather earrings and a matching purse. So, when I’m looking to piece together an ensemble with jeans, I also go classic with a twist!” These paperbag jeans are just that.
This trend in bottoms is comin’ in HOT. I love it because styling crop tops has never been easier. Thank you to the person who brought high waisted pants back in style. Anyway, this versatility makes it easy to dress paperbag jeans for daytime or evening wear. Last night I wore ’em with a rainbow sweater for a casual meeting. Add some sequins to the mix and just like that I am ready for date night, or maybe jut some cacio e pepe! Tune in to IG to see where I am headed in this exact outfit.
About the Fit
Cropped jeans > full length jeans. Of course they hit me right at the ankle, but I am ok with that! It will save me a trip to the tailor. Being 100% cotton, I suggest sizing up if you have a curvy figure. I ordered a 0 and a 2 and sent back the size 0. With that being said, they are surprisingly comfortable. I typically stay away from bottoms without stretch because #bootyproblems, but the fit is relaxed enough that the lack of stretch is not an issue. If you are looking for a flattering alternative to your high waist skinny jeans, this is it. Happy shopping!
