Boyfriend jeans are a constant in my life and I have retired the skinny fit for well over the past six months. A combination of a few extra pounds, the increasing humidity, plus the simple fact that as I age, I’m more interested in being comfortable. While I always like to be pulled together and pay attention to my style, comfort is key. In addition to this Rag & Bone pair, my Gap boyfriend jeans are also a major player in my wardrobe. I probably wear them too much, and don’t wash them enough – but this is the kind of denim that gets better with age. Flattering on most body types, super comfortable, and with the option of being both dressed up and down, I recommend scooping up a pair – I promise, you will love. Unfortunately the white just sold out online but other washes are available. If you’re jones’ing for the white, check your local Gap store. Style Tip: Size down as they run big and tend to stretch.
You should know that Gap was built on the philosophy by its founders Doris and Don Fisher to “do more then sell clothes”. The company is committed to socially responsible practices such as energy efficiency, conservation measures, waste reduction and establishes programs like P.A.C.E. (Personal Advancement & Career Enhancement) which offers “female garment workers the life skills education and technical training they need to advance at work and in life”.
