The Beauty of Dad Denim

Hello lovelies! I’m usually a skinny jean gal, but lately I’ve been going out of my comfort zone. I picked up these wide straight leg jeans from Gap the other week when they were on sale, and I truly do love them. The best way to categorize this style of jeans is “dad denim.” Yep, they totally look like my dad’s light wash Levi’s he mows the lawn in, but for some reason, I’m really digging it.


Now, these jeans aren’t for everyone, but they make a statement. To me, they say “yeah, I’m matching my dad but I don’t care!” I’ve honestly gotten a few stares when wearing them, and I really don’t care. They make me feel powerful, sophisticated, and feminine.


I like to pair them with a basic white tee and mules to let the jeans do the talking, or with a pretty pink top and gingham wedges to show that I don’t need skintight jeans to look like a lady.


Don’t get me wrong, I won’t be giving up my high-waisted skinnies anytime soon. I will be embracing the beauty of not caring in these unconventional jeans.


My big dilemma with these jeans is whether or not I should cut a raw hem. I’m really loving the classic feel of them now, but I think with a raw hem they’d put off a more boho vibe. What do you think? Let me know in the comments or on my Instagram, Facebook, or Pinterest!

xoxo, The Chic Flamingo
