Wardrobe Essentials: Save, Crave, Investment #5

It seems like boyfriend jeans are EVERYWHERE this season, and I have to say, I still wear the pair I bought five years ago at least three times a week. So much so, that my holes have grown beyond repair, and I had to go out in search of the replacement (hint I picked up the "splurge" pair and they are awesome!) While I love the slouchy look, over the past few years I have found myself gravitating towards the distressed skinny leg for everyday wear. This jean can be dressed up with a blazer and heels, just as easily as the "weekend" look can be completed with a tee/ sweatshirt and oxfords/loafers. While I had my doubts a few years back, I have to admit, this is definitely one trend that is here to stay, and that makes me very, very happy. 

Below is some inspiration. As you can see you can rip 'em a little, or a lot, just make sure they are distressed. I love how laid back, and cool they can make the simplest of outfits become!

Here are some options for how to get the look. Given that they are made to rip (and will) and can be worn slouchy, this is one clothing item that it seems silly to break the bank on, hence the lack of "investment" option. I bought the J. Crew pair a few weeks back, and almost cried when they had to go in the wash this morning.

It's not a coincidence that these pair perfectly with Wardrobe essentials #1- 4 which can be found here

Oh, and I've heard some people saying that they may be too "old" for this look.
