Growing up I wasn't allowed to wear pants (one day I’ll share why) which meant anytime I snuck and wore them they weren't mine and they were often too big. When the time came where I could openly wear pants, my go-to size was still the baggy jeans. There were a few reasons why, but the main reason was that I was pint-sized, and I didn’t want people to see just how tiny I was.
But that all changed once I got to college. All of a sudden, I wanted to change how I dressed. So, to shake things up a bit, I threw out all my too big jeans and jumped on the skinny jeans bandwagon which I’ve been riding that out ever since.
In recent months, I’ve noticed that my personal style is slightly changing. Which is a good thing. I don’t ever want to get stuck in a style rut (btw, if you’re style is stuck, check out my style services to see how I can help free you from your wardrobe woes…. Not a shameless plug!) Okay where was I…. Oh yea, even though I’ve been a long time fan of the skinny jean, I’m stepping out to explore other jean options.
Enter these oversized baggy distressed jeans (that I absolutely LOVE). I nearly passed on them because they are almost toooo big. Glad I went with my style mind instead of my rational mind. With fall right around the bend, I’ve already have at least 5 more ways to wear them.
For this look I went for a mixture of feminine and masculine. Borrowing from the boys I decided on this contrast stripped button-down and from the girls these heeled sandals and floral embellished box clutch. It’s simple yet it still makes a statement.
Be on the look out guys, these jeans will probably be in heavy rotation this fall. Don’t say I didn’t warn you… What are your thoughts on baggy jeans? Let’s talk in the comments.
