You know the drill: It's Saturday, you've probably overslept (no judgement), and you're scrambling to put a decent look together. Our standard outfit for those mornings? A chic T-shirt, leggings, and sneakers considered acceptable to wear outside the gym—it tells the world we're ready to caffeine up and run errands like nobody's business.
But whatever happened to wearing jeans for your Saturday drill? We know, we know, finding denim comfortable enough to schlep around in is a difficult task, but we promise that there is a way. Self-professed denim lover Gina Ybarra of Hunt for Styles feels the same way, and she has a tip or two when it comes to finding the perfect comfortable pair. Thanks to her busy lifestyle, Ybarra has mastered the art of stylish dressing on the go, and today she's sharing the wealth.
Below, she tells us the secret that's transformed her relationship with denim and led her to the American Eagle Outfitters jeans she can't live without.
Ever found that standout pair of jeans, only to discover they fit completely differently before you even get through your first morning wearing them? Or a pair that looks great in the dressing room but has you fidgeting in discomfort as soon as you sit down? Even fashion bloggers like Ybarra know the struggle of finding denim that ticks all the boxes. Her biggest concern when it comes to denim is finding a comfortable pair that won't stretch out.
If there's one thing Ybarra can teach us about, it's denim shopping—and she tells us that the key to finding the perfect fit lies in the fabric. "The pair may be stylish, but if they don't have a great fit, I think twice about buying them," says Ybarra. But wait, isn't all denim made out of…denim? Apparently not. Ybarra swears by checking the label to make sure the jeans make use of LYCRA® dualFX® technology. This way she knows she's getting jeans that will stretch to move with her but won't lose their shape.
We all know that girl who looks effortlessly chic 24/7, even when she's just stepping out to the store or walking her dog. Well, spoiler alert: It's not that hard when you feel good in even your run-around clothes (looking at you, denim). Ybarra's favorite jeans come from American Eagle Outfitters: "They have such a comfortable fit that I don't feel like I'm wearing denim at all,” she tells us. She styled her distressed pair with a military-inspired jacket and chic white sneakers—being comfortable has never looked so chic.
