I think I’ve probably tried on over a hundred pairs of “significant other” jeans (ie boyfriend/girlfriend cuts ;)) and never found a pair that I thought was the least bit flattering.
I wanted the casual cool look of boyfriend jeans minus the boy butt look, but girlfriend jeans tended to have super long crotches that were way too tight (pet peeve of mine since elementary school, seriously). I have no idea what cut these jeans are classified as at Madewell- all I know is that I love them! They call them their summer jean with a “90s-supermodel-inspired high rise that perfectly accentuates the waist, this supersoft pair is a year-rounder.” And I must say, I do agree! I don’t generally go for light washes, but I think it works well in this style.
I’ve had a few pairs of Madewell jeans and have found them to be super comfy and durable. I usually wear a 27, but I grabbed a 26 in this pair since they are 100% cotton and will stretch out with wear. I’ve got my eye on this high-rise button-up pair next! Levi’s 311s are usually my go-to denim, but check out some Madewell if you haven’t already! I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised 🙂
