Trouser Jeans

When I opened my August issue of Lucky, I didn't even make it as far as the table of contents before coming across this ad for jeans. I've been looking for wide legged jeans for a while and finally surrendered to a pair I found on sale for $25 at Express a few weeks back. I actually like this pair more because these don't have front pockets and mine do.

A few years back I tried to completely phase jeans out of my wardrobe. I actually succeeded for a while, but eventually a pair or two crept back in. I'm okay with that and conceed that they have their place, but I still prefer jean styles that are as dressy as possible. Hence my infatuation with trouser jeans.

I love this pair for their dark wash, lean fit, and cute sailor pant-style side buttons. I think they'd be nicely curve-skimming on and forgiving for heavier thighs because they gradually flare towards the ankles. I'm curious about whether they have back pockets and would hope not, even though cagily-located back pockets do do wonders for the rear view.

I LOVE my denim trouser jeans... I got a pair from Jacob and they're dark and sleek enough to be work appropriate, and can also be dressed down with a t-shirt...

I wish I had bought a backup pair. They made my butt look curvy :)
