And they’re getting harder and harder to find now that higher-waisted jeans have taken over. I’ve tried to get on board—and have one pair I like a lot—but for the most part, I still feel like low-slung jeans are more flattering and so much more comfortable, at least for me. (I know some people swear that high-waisted jeans are more comfortable, and I will never understand this.) Here’s a nice boyfriend cut from Frame.
I love a grey jean and these are pretty nicely priced.
FromUniversal Standard: just a really good, slightly faded-out black wash.
And here’s a really clean wash, with no whiskering or fading whatsoever: so tough to find.
These have a bit of a flair, which is sort of fun.
I’d wear this pair with a simple white button-down.
These look so relaxed and slouchy, but not sloppy.
Red jeans are appealing in a slightly Euro way.
I just love the wash on these: clean, clean, clean.
I haven’t gotten tired of frayed hems yet, and think they’re really good here.
I prefer a more beaten-in black jean, but am including this pair for those who prefer blacker-than-black. I also like the crop.
These are so classic, I picture Lauren Hutton wearing them in the 70s. I realize she wouldn’t have been wearing skinny jeans in the 70s, but that’s where my mind goes.
I like the button-detail at the ankle here.
And finally: a slick coated pair that looks exactly like leather but costs a lot less.
