I already know that: This isn’t the first time I’ve raved about Old Navy jeans. In fact, the retail store has been one of my go-to places to shop for denim for over a year now. I found a trend split border pair that I wear at least once a week, a pair of so-called harnesses *size *magicaland now: Balloon’s ultra-high gloss non-stretch black ankle-length jeans ($45), which I love so much, I wore them two days in a row. Keep reading to know all the reasons why you *may* need them in your wardrobe too.
What I like about these jeans
Now, you know I’m a big fan of Old Navy denim, so it’s perhaps no surprise that I surveyed the brand. new part coming quite often. When I came across these bubble jeans (aka barrel jeans), I gasped in awe. For those unfamiliar with the style, it features a high, fitted waist and a baggy straight leg that elongates at the ankle – and is often cropped. They reached their heyday in the 80s, but now plus size jeans is back, I think you’ll see a so many more of this silhouette.
As you can see in the photo above (if you look closely), they have subtle matte and abrasive edges on the bag to evoke a true vintage feel. And they not only look great, but they are also very comfortable. Because they’re baggy, I don’t feel constrained, and they’re not too hot to wear on a Midwestern summer day. I paired them with a basic white tank, loafers and a belt bag – and knew I would recreate the look again in the (very near) future.
Something worth noting
Since these jeans are brand new on the Old Navy website, they have not yet made a review. One important thing to note is that these jeans are definitely somewhat baggy, so if that’s not your thing, you might want to consider a different style. But if you’re totally on board, I think you’ll be happy with your purchase. After all, the price is right. A quick Google search for similar results has yielded designs with much higher price tags. While I can’t speak for the others, they all look like Old Navy versions.
