Let’s get one thing straight: I LOVE jeans. I wear them almost every day and even enjoy lounging in them when I’m home (which I’ve recently been told is insane). However, as much as this pains me to acknowledge, there are, unfortunately, those occasional times when wherever you’re going is a no-denim zone. Think certain office environments, formal events, certain places of worship—you get where I’m going with this, right? In order to avoid an emotional breakdown of sorts whenever I have to go somewhere that jeans just won’t cut it, I’ve found that it helps to have a pair of cool stand-in pants I can style in a similar manner. In my case, that means with a T-shirt, but I’m sure it varies from denim lover to denim lover. Continue on to shop my favorite pants that are sure to (stylishly) play second fiddle to your jeans in the season ahead.
