5 "Soft" Trends Everyone's Wearing Instead of Jeans
Because when you think about it, jeans are pretty hard.
Something we have yet to discuss is "soft" pants versus "hard" pants. The reason for no prior discussion can most likely be chalked up to the fact that up until now, we never really considered certain pants "hard." To get you up to speed, now that we've been living in all things soft, stretchy, and oversize, jeans seem really, well, hard. The rigid nature of the denim combined with constricting waistlines now seems scary, uncomfortable, and, to be honest, a little unnecessary. It reminds me of that meme that's been floating around that says, "People who are quarantining in jeans: What are you trying to prove?"
