Me: What do you think of my new jeans?
Husband: Are you going to paint something?
Me: Um, yea. Paint the town red in my awesome new jeans.
And that's how I introduced my husband to my boyfriend (jeans). I'll admit that I'd been avoiding boyfriends, but after seeing them on countless celebrities and street style stars, I got curious. If stylish women are willing to put aside their skinnies, these baggier blues must have super powers or at least be super comfortable.
So I tried Gap’s Destructed Sexy Boyfriend Jean. Comfortable, yes, but sexy? See painting question. To avoid the handyman look, I added pumps and a little bit of sparkle but kept things relaxed with a fatigue jacket (last seen here). After taking these jeans for a spin, I must say they're a liberating alternative to second-skin denim. As for any super powers? I discovered at least one during date night: you can go out for Italian and have room for gelato without undoing your top button.
