Meet the future of denim.
You can blame or thank Katie Holmes and the other celebrities spotted recently in slouchy boyfriend jeans.
According to Stacy Larson, denim aficionado and owner of Covered
, the next big thing is a high-waisted slouchy jean. They look big enough to fit a guy, but they're made to give flatter in a feminine way. Plus rips, tears and splatters are part of the package.
Your first reaction probably goes something like this: "Really? So Bruce Springstein." But give it a few months and you'll get used to the look and the idea of it. Plus once you see how comfortable they are, you'll want to live in them.
Larson likes the new line Current/Elliott
. It was started by a pair of celebrity stylists who couldn't find the perfect jeans so they made their own.
So you might try on those pants you were keeping for painting in or slip into a pair of the strategically ripped and somehow flatteringly slouchy premium version. Whatever: There's no reason to tear yourself up over it.
