We’ll cut to the chase here because we know you’re curious. Dad jeans (translation: loose, light-wash jeans one’s dad may or may not have worn in the early ’90s… or now—we’re not judging) are the latest “normal” clothing item to turn fashion-y and cool. With the idea of “dad dressing” being a thing and the combination of all things throwback and retro on the return, we now have dad jeans. Think a mix of the new normcore meets vintage, but put a 2018 twist on it. Is your head spinning yet? Let the jean style speak for itself and check out the brands leading the dad-jean trend below.

We’re into the idea of styling the relaxed jean style with a fitted top and heels for a chill evening look and a colorful sweater and—dare we say it—dad sneakers for a laid-back weekend outfit.

Available in sizes 24 to 32.

Now, for some expert insight into the latest fashion trend, see what happened when we asked four dads to share their thoughts on “dad” sneakers (prepare to LOL).
