Boyfriend jeans, wrote a song about it. Like to hear it? Here it go.
Free your leeeeeeggggggs / and the waist will follow / loose and tattered / you done been swallowed / free your leeeeeeegggggggs / and the knees will follow / holes are shredded / no need to wallow.
That’s as far as I got with my boyfriend jeans song, sung to the tune of En Vogue’s “Free Your Mind.” The point being, put on a pair of boyfriend jeans, especially after months and months of skinny jeans, and your stems will be singing a new tune. Comfy, loose, sometimes-shredded, paired with everything from sky-high heels to sneakers, boyfriend jeans are much more versatile than you might think.

When I was a preteen, I made a purse out of an old pair of jeans and thought I was just too cool. Artist Ian Berry took things a big step further, using denim as a medium to make beautiful “paintings.” In a report by the BBC, Berry shows off his art. The designs look almost as if they’re paintings, but are made solely of jeans. Berry has exhibited his work worldwide, and was even commissioned by Giorgio Armani. Mind. Blown. [BBC]
Denim is perfect for transitioning from summer to fall. How do I know? I’ve got a denim jacket on right now — mostly to stave off the ridiculously cold air conditioning in The Frisky’s bizarrely tempered offices.
This is really my first foray into denim jackets in a long while, mostly because I’ve been unable to find something I really, really like — a jacket that’s not too heavy or cumbersome, but one that’s not just super lightweight cotton, either.
All this jacket shopping got me thinking about how difficult it can be to find something you like and can actually afford. That’s why I’ve searched hard and found some great pieces at both higher price points and in more affordable ranges — proof that you can find something cool no matter your budget.
Take a look and tell us your faves!
A denim skirt is one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you’ll ever own. Wear it with flip-flops and a T-shirt to the grocery store, or dress it up with heels and a pretty blouse for a night out. Dark denim pencil skirts totally work at casual offices, while a light wash denim mini looks great with a bikini top at the beach. Wear any denim skirt year round by adding textured tights, boots, and a chunky sweater. I could go on, but you get the idea, right? Click through to check out 10 denim skirts in an array of styles and sizes — all for $75 or less!
Jorts. Jean shorts. They’re a ubiquitous style in the summer time–and whether your wear them high-waisted like Alexa Chung, or frayed beyond belief, like Selena Gomez, they’re a warm weather staple. The key to jort-wearing is keeping it super casual, so don’t try and dress up your jorts with heels or some kind of overly fancy blouse. Jorts should evoke a cool, comfortable style, just like you. Celebs obviously like partaking in the jortery, too, with varying degrees of success. Here, we’ve got Alexa, Emmy Rossum, Miranda Kerr, Selena Gomez and Anna Paquin. What jorts look do you like best?
Celebs: They’re just like us! I mean, they own jeans, too. And sometimes, occasionally, they wear them in public and stuff. Over the past couple of days, Jennifer Garner, Hayden Panettiere, Sienna Miller, Jessica Biel and Alessandra Ambrosio have all been spotted out in their fave denim looks. While Hayden and Jessica stuck to a skinny style, Sienna wore a more (questionable) relaxed cut, and Alessandra tempted fate in white. Denim is basically the foundational fabric of the Great American Outfit, but even so, sometimes celebs can miss the mark. So who’s your fave?
I love trying out new fashion trends but, let’s be honest. I have no idea what to think of this one. Wrangler is launching a new pair of jeans that “moisturize” your butt. The Denim Spa jeans come in three different moisturizing levels- Aloe Vera, Olive Extract, and Smooth Legs, and they claim to help prevent cellulite. The moisturizers supposedly contain “the hydrating properties of natural oils and butters” with such exotic ingredients as monoi de Tahiti? Never heard of that one until now…
This raises so many questions in my mind, and I feel have no answer for them right now. My first question is, how exactly does this “contraption” work? Does the cloth like continuously spray the aloe vera? Also, wouldn’t it feel kinda weird/ be difficult to get your jeans on over your underwear? Read more…
Julie and I agree that these weird, confusing, totally real denim sandal boots most likely came into existence as the result of someone making a pair of cutoff jean shorts (or “jorts,” if you’re an asshole) and trying to find a way to use the rest of the fabric. Here, I wrote a haiku to better explain the thought process:
Just made some sweet jorts!
Now I have extra fabric…
I’ll make jandal joots!
Seriously though, why do these exist?! [Buzzfeed]
“Help! I’m looking for a pair of grey jeans to mix up my wardrobe. I want light grey ones, but not so light that I have to worry about spills on them. I’d also like them skinny not flared. Do you have suggestion of jeans that fit a size 10 or 12? I’m willing to spend up to $150 but would prefer less.” — Kendra
Ah yes,the old jean hunt. Grey jeans are a nice basic that go great with pretty much anything you’d wear regular blue denim with. After the jump, we have four great options for you!
