PLAYING IN JEANS

TYPICALLY, INDIVIDUALITY IS THE CORE OF OUR STYLE. FROM WHO WE ARE IS WHERE OUR PERSONALIZED TASTES AND LOOKS ARE DERIVED, BUT SOMETIMES THE BEST THING YOU CAN ROCK IS YOUR FAVORITE PAIR OF JEANS AND A TEE. WE ASKED SOME OF OUR IN-HOUSE CREATIVES TO TELL US ABOUT WHY THEY FELT COMFORTABLE IN THE SIMPLE, CLASSIC OUTFIT AND WHY, EVEN IF ONLY FOR A WHILE, THEY DIDN’T MIND SHEDDING THEIR INDIVIDUALITY AND LOOKING JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE ON SET.

“A PLAIN WHITE T-SHIRT, LOOSE BOYFRIEND JEANS AND THRIFTED, ALL WHITE, TRUE SOCCER MOM SHOES: ALL COMPONENTS TO THE MOST COMFORTABLE OUTFIT WHICH HAS MOVED ITS WAY UP THE FASHION TOTEM POLE. COMFORTABLE IS THE NEW SEXY. FROM BAGGY KYLE JENNER HOODIES TO MATCHING SWEATSUITS AND ADIDAS BRANDING ANY SPORTSWEAR, WE’RE STRAYING AWAY FROM THE ANTIQUATED IDEA THHAT “BEAUTY IS PAIN” INTO THE NEW REALM OF “COMFORT IS 🔑.”

I AM IN FULL SUPPORT OF ANYTHING WHICH PROMOTES WOMEN FEELING COMFORTABLE IN WHAT THEY WEAR AND SIMULTANEOUSLY CHANNELING THEIR INNER BOSS WHILE ROCKING ANYTHING- WHETER IT BE A PAIR OF STILETTOS OR JEANS TWO SIZES TOO BIG. I CAN TESTIFY THAT THE FEELING OF FINDING A PERFECT PAIR OF BAGGY JEANS THAT HUGS YOUR BUTT IN ALL THE RIGT PLACES IS A TRULY WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. FOR ME, THE SIMPLICITY AND CARE-FREE GENUITY OF JEANS IN A TEE WONT EVER GO OUT OF STYLE.”

THE END OF THE SLIDE

“WELL, FOR  STARTERS, YOU’RE GUARANTEED SUCCESS WITH MINIMAL EFFORT. YOU’LL LOOK GOOD EVEN IF YOU GOT UP LATE, THREW ON SAID OUTFIT, RAN OUT THE DOOR, AND BRUSHED YOUR TEETH ON THE WAY TO SCHOOL. TRUE, YOU MIGHT NOT STICK OUT IN THE “WOW, WHAT A UNIQUE OUTFIT!” SENSE, BUT A PLAIN AND SIMPLE JEAM & TEE COMBO IS SURE TO PASS WITH FLYING- NO, SOARING COLORS IN THE EVERYDAY CASUAL DEPARTMENT. THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH SIMPLICITY.

ALTHOUGH IT MIGHT NOT MATCH YOUR AESTHETIC OR BE UP TO THE QUOTA OF ICONIC STYLE YOU USUALLY HOLD YOURSELF TO, TAKING A DAY OFF FROM PAINSTAKINGLY PLANNING OUTFITS AND TEARING APART YOUR CLOSET IN THE MORNING IS  RELIEVING. JEANS AND TEE SHIRTS JUST SCREAM “I’M CAREFREE! THROW ANY STRESSFUL ENCOUNTER AT ME, AND I’LL REMAIN CALM AND CASUAL THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE OF IT.”   

YOU CAN LET YOURSELF OUTSHINE INITIAL OCULAR IMPRESSIONS.  IT’S LIKE BREAD (OOPS, LET’S BE CHEESY FOR A SECOND) AND YOU ARE THE JAM (BARE WITH ME). YOUR PERSONALITY, YOUR BEAUTY, AND YOUR ATTITUDE ARE THE STARS OF A SIMPLE OUTFIT. IT’S WHAT PEOPLE WILL SEE FIRST! ANNNND- THAT’S WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS CLASSIC COMBO.”

“I’VE NEVER BEEN VERY GOOD AT SITTING STILL. I MEAN, I FEEL LIKE THERE’S ALAWYS SOMEWHERE TO BE, SOMETHING TO DO, SOMEONE TO TALK TO. IT’S JUST GO-GO-GO, I COULDN’T PUT THE BREAKS ON IF I TIRED. WHICH MAKES IT FITTING, THE JEANS WITH THE SHELL TOES AND A TEE. THEY’RE RUNNING CLOTHES FOR THE KIDS WHO CANT SLEEP.

I LIKE THE FEELING OF BEING ABLE TO BREATHE, WHICH MAY SOUND RIDICULOUS- WHO DOESNT LIKE TO BREATH- BUT HAVING CLOTHES THAT LET YOU DO THAT IS A LIL’ BIT MAGICAL. THIS IS THE QUINTESSENTIAL AMERICAN OUTFIT. IT’S THE OPEN AIR AND BEING YOURSELF IN CLOTHES THAT ALLOW YOU TO.

GOD, I LOVE A GOOD PAIR OF JEANS.”

“I LOVE LOOKING GOOD AND HATE  PUTTING IN TIME TO OUTFITS. I WANT TO GET DRESSED AND GET OUT THE DOOR AS FAST AS POSSIBLE, WHILE STILL FEELING GOOD ABOUT MY LOOK ; A PLAIN CROP TOP/ FITTED TEE SHIRT PAIRED WITH ANY JEANS DOES EXACTLY THIS.

THERE’S A MILLION REASONS WHY JEANS AND A WHITE TEE ARE THE WAY TO GO. THE FIRST BEING IT IS RIDICULOUSLY COMFORTABLE, SO WHETHER I’M RUNNING AROUND A PLAYGROUND FOR A PHOTOSHOOT OR GOING ABOUT MY DAILY BUSINESS IN SCHOOL, AT LEAST I’M NOT COUNTING DOWN THE MINUTES TO CHANGE INTO SOMETHING MORE COMFORTABLE. WE ALL BUY SOMETHING THAT’S A LITTLE TIGHT, ITCHY, OR JUST NOT QUITE RIGHT EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE. BUT WITH THIS,  IT’LL ALWAYS FEEL RIGHT.

THIS LOOK IS A BLANK CANVAS, IF I WANT TO DRAW ATTENTION TO AN ACCESSORY: A NECKLACE, FUNKY SOCKS, A HAT, GLASSES- WHATEVER- THIS LOOK IS SO SIMPLE THAT IT MAKES ANYTHING EXTRA SHINE. THIS IS A KEY PART TO THE VERSATILITY OF THIS SIMPLE LOOK;  YOU CAN DRESS IT UP WITH BLACK JEANS, BOOTIES,AND A CHIC NECKLACE, OR YOU CAN DRESS IT DOWN WITH JOGGER CUT GIRLFRIEND JEANS, BIRKENSTOCKS, AND CUTE BASEBALL CAP (MY PERSONAL FAVORITE)- EITHER WAY YOU’RE GONNA LOOK  GREAT.

THIS OUTFIT HAS SO MUCH ROOM FOR INTERPRETATION THAT IT IS YOUR MOST RELIABLE FRIEND, IF YOU DON’T KNOW THE DRESS CODE, YOU DO KNOW THAT YOU CAN THROW ON YOUR GO TO JEANS AND WHITE TEE, SHOVE A COUPLE NECKLACE OPTIONS IN YOUR PURSE, AND GO. SO, EVEN WHEN EACH PERSON ON SET WAS WEARING A WHITE SHIRT AND JEANS, WE EACH SHOWED HOW DIFFERENT WE WERE, IN THE TYPE OF JEANS, CUT OF SHIRT, GLASSES STYLE, OR NECKLACE WE CHOSE TO WEAR. ANY OUTFIT THAT CAN DO THAT IS A STAPLE OUTFIT OF MINE.”
