How is your week going? LLP is starting a new series called ‘Building your Capsule Wardobe’. Once a week I will pick a piece that everyone needs in their closet when creating a wardrobe that will transition with you from season to season, and year to year. This isn’t the first installment but I will say, a great pair of dark wash skinny jeans and a flattering girlfriend pair will definetly be making the list!
So lets talk jeans! If you’re like me you have 30+ pairs of skinny jeans lining your closet and you’re ready for something different! Thanks to Alyson Haley of Sequins and Things from her Nordstrom dressing room try on, I found these amazing Treasure and Bond jeans. These quickly became one of my favorite purchases from the Nordstrom sale(my try on)! That being said… everyone needs a great girlfriend, slouchy, whatever you want to call it pair in your closet, and I will tell you why!
Until a month ago, finding a pair of girlfriend jeans that were flattering was next to impossible. After much trial and error, I finally fell in love with a pair, and honestly don’t know how I ever lived without them. They are a great way to switch up your look, while still wearing jeans.
Girlfriend jeans can be very unflattering, especially if you don’t spend the time finding a pair that fits correctly. No one wants a sloppy sag butt… atleast I don’t think so. The best part about this type of jean is how easy they can transition from day to night.
I styled my girlfriend jeans for a casual date night look or drinks with the girls. All it took was a heel, a cute tank and my favorite clutch to pull this look together. The heel is what really takes this look from daytime to date night. Any top from basic tee to button down will work. If the weather was cooler I would have probably styled this with a white button down or printed blouse. These jeans would work with many choices, however, I would stay away from bulky sweaters, loose fitted cardigans or coats.
If you’re a mom and getting out at all seems to be a thing of the past( I feel yeah)! These jeans look great styled with sneakers and a tee. Not only is that super easy, it’s also super comfortable… #winning. I’m not telling you what to buy, well, maybe I am. Run, don’t walk and grab yourself a great fitting pair of girlfriend jeans. Thank me later!
