Everyday Denim with Uniqlo

Do you remember when "boyfriend" jeans became a thing? I believe I was in my freshman year of college and loved the idea of trading in my skinny jeans for something loose yet surprisingly well fitted. I instantly went out and bought a pair of premium denim that I found with a 15% off promo- I thought I had scored the holy grail. These slightly distressed and cuffed beauties only managed to set my poor college self back $160! If you can't sense the humor let me spell it out- for that price they were definitely not holy grail worthy.
Fast forward quite a few years and the hunt for an affordable option continues- well up until a few weeks ago. With all the variations on the style ("girlfriend jean" straight leg, loose fit) it can be hard to narrow down exactly what to look for. Overall if you're looking for this style it should fit as follows:
- Straight, slightly loose fit (in both legs and hips)
- Loose fit in the hips
- fitted in the waist
- Cut right above the ankle in a wide leg
I can honestly say that Uniqlo's slim boyfriend fit ankle length jeans are the best jeans I've worn in a long time! The fit is everything I mentioned about and more, not to mention the wash is perfect for Spring. I wore them out to a friends birthday with a light blouse and Uniqlo's drape long jacket. I love playing with layers and different hemlines, and this jacket and jeans combo have got to be one of my favorites.
