hope you all had a lovely new year's eve! i've been kind of ushering in the new year with a relaxed vibe that's translated a lot into what i'm pulling from my closet. i'm currently obsessed with the slouchy jean. my current elliotts have never been more comfortable, and one of my new year resolutions is to do a much-needed edit of my denim pile. (random pair of wideleg sevens that i never wear, you know who you are!) my goal is to wear the same 3-5 pairs of jeans over and over all the time.
also, over the past few years, i realized that i just don't like low-rise anything. is that a sign of getting old?? whatever, give me midrise, or even high-waisted jeans any day. i know there is a mainstream idea of denim 'fit' that dictates no baggy sagginess around the waist/hip/butt area, but mainstream style commonsense isn't all that it's cracked up to be. i'm not going to become an apologist for utterly unflattering weirdness in the name of fashion (though, admittedly, that is the game we play), but i think more credit needs to be given to slim-fitting jeans that have just the right amount of slouch. what do you think?
