One day when I was wearing some skinny jeans for a day of teaching, I looked around and realized that ALL my kids were wearing wide jeans baggy jeans. And frankly, I felt like a bit of a dinosaur! I guess teaching high school does keep me young in some ways (and makes me feel ancient in others). Anyway, later that day I was picking up make-up wipes at Target and couldn’t help but trying on these jeans and loving them!
Shop the Look:
Here I styled them with my favorite blazer (yes, THAT blazer … AGAIN!), an Everlane bodysuit, and my Converse sneakers. In the last photo, I ditched the blazer for a more laid back vibe with a new flannel shirt, also a Target purchase that I love!
Pear Shape Style Tip: Show off your smaller upper body in something more fitted to balance out the baggy proportions of the jeans.
Are you a fan of this trend? I’m really enjoying it and gosh-darn-it if the baggy look isn’t super comfy! But don’t get me wrong, I’ll still be wearing my skinny jeans and my favorite mid-rise bootcut jeans as well. I think there’s room for many denim silhouettes in a wardrobe.
Oh, and while I’m on the subject of Target, did you see that they have a new designer collaboration with Sergio Hudson coming October 9th? Check it out here: Sergio Hudson x Target!
Fun & Fashion,
About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is me talking to you, other middle aged women like me who are over 40, but not over fashion. We still want to look beautiful and stylish. We still want to have fun with trends. And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. We all have our own shapes and bodies, parts we’d like to cover and parts we still don’t mind showing off a bit. This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce!
