It’s strange to admit that I’ve never owned a pair of beige jeans (or white, but that’s another story). As someone prone to spills and messes, I’ve steered clear of them for 27 years. But just recently, I finally decided to give it a shot, namely because I’ve been seeing so many people looking hella chic in them on social media. In pursuit of a similar look, I found the Old Navy Extra High-Waisted Sky Hi Straight Ecru Wide-Leg Jeans ($45), which looked like they’d take me from spring to summer and fall, no problem. Obviously, I added them to my shopping cart — and nearly ripped them out of the package when they hit my mailbox.
If you’ve read my reviews before, you know I’m a fan of wide-leg jeans. As someone who’s among those to kiss skinny jeans goodbye for the foreseeable future, they’re my new go-to. I think they elevate just about any look, even this sports-bra-turned-shirt pictured above. (And yes, I put them on so fast that I forgot to take off the tag first.) While I like the way they look as part of a monochrome ‘fit, I can also see myself teaming them with a white blouse or maybe a brown tank, but this neutral hue will undeniably look good with just about anything.
At the time of writing, these jeans have a perfect five-star review on the brand’s website, not like that really surprises me. One happy reviewer writes, “These jeans are exceptionally well constructed,” adding that “the fabric is very solid.” They deem them a bit too heavy for summer but say they’re “perfect for spring.” I don’t entirely disagree, but I think they’d work for a breezy summer evening, too. A second person raves, “I ordered an 8 tall and these jeans look sooo good,” describing them as “figure enhancing with a high waist and loose fit.” The best part of the comment? “My boyfriend thought they were really HOT!!!” they wrote. It’s true — these jeans are a serious confidence booster.
