When mom jeans and boyfriend jeans began to take over the fashion industry, I wasn’t driven towards the new trend. When I thought of jeans, my mind would subconsciously picture a pair of skinny jeans from American Eagle. Whenever I tried on a pair of boyfriend jeans or mom jeans, they would either be too short or too loose in all the wrong places. My search came to an end when I found these jeans at Brandy Melville. I tried them on and immediately I realized the comfort that boyfriend jeans provide. Kendall Jenner and the Hadid sisters have served as fashion icons to me, and I’ve noticed that their outfits rarely consist of traditional skinny jeans. Jeans were once seen as a wardrobe staple but have transformed to serve as strong statement pieces. This pair caught my eye with the two dark patches that contrast with the light denim. To ensure that the patches were the highlight of this outfit, I paired the jeans with a simple striped t-shirt and white Stan Smiths.
