There’s ALL this talk recently about skinny jeans vs. wide-leg jeans. Apparently, Gen Z says skinny jeans are OUT! While I’m not throwing out my skinny jeans anytime soon, I’m totally here for comfier, more relaxed-fitting jeans. After all, they’re BASICALLY sweatpants–but cuter. Rounding up some of my favorite Gen Z-inspired jeans (clickable below) which I have my eye on right now. These jeans have a cool-girl vibe but they’re still mom-appropriate. Topping off today’s post with some photos we snapped in the Arizona desert a couple of weeks ago when I was wearing my current fave pair of relaxed-fitting denim. Linking to outfit details below too.
Relaxed Denim I’m Loving Right Now
This pair of Gen Z-inspired denim has the perfect light wash with room to spare. I love the fact that they cinch at the waist but the legs have such a cute, flowy feel. If you’re looking for a slightly tighter fit, this pair is perfect. They’re high-waisted and flow without being too baggy.
I’m a big fan of wearing white denim all year round (even though I can never keep it clean thanks to Naiya and Sadie!). These white jeans from Free People are a great option if you want a refresh! They’re perfect for spring and the cut is so flattering.
For a classic, solid pair of everyday denim, I’m loving these high-waisted straight-leg jeans! This pair of jeans is specifically designed with a special control-top that helps to comfortably suck you in in all the best ways.
Are you team skinny jeans or team relaxed fit? Are you somewhere in between?
