When it comes to Korean denim, it’s no doubt the 2010’s were the decade of the skinny jean. Now, as we enter 2020, we’re seeing a resurgence of denim with wider legs, smaller waists, and straight/relaxed styles. Whether you call them “mom jeans”, “boyfriend jeans”, or anything else, relaxed and straight fit jeans have made their mark in the K-fashion world.
As the Korean fashion authority, we at the K-Blog are fully on board for this trend. Here, our top reasons why straight and relaxed-fit jeans are the ultimate fashion staple:
1. They’re oh, so comfortable
Who doesn’t love a comfortable pair of jeans? The wide-legged factor of straight and relaxed fit jeans makes them super comfy and perfect for everyday outfits.
2. They look good on everyone
Loose fit jeans — no matter if they’re straight or relaxed fits — are ultra-flattering on anyone regardless of body type, gender, or personal style. The fitted waist and long leg effect make you look taller, sleeker, and like any outfit you wear is put together.
For a comfy look, pair a loose-fit pair of jeans with a baggy top or sweater. For dramatic waist definition, pair your jeans with a tucked-in fitted tee.
3. They’re perfect for day-to-night
While denim is always a moment RE: casual days out and fun nights, the trouser-like effect of straight makes them perfect for business casual looks.
For a more professional vibe, pair jeans with a blouse, blazer, and flats (or heels, if that’s more your style).
4. They come in tons of styles
Distressed, acid wash, patchwork — you name it, we have it. Our selection of Korean style jeans and relaxed fit denim goes beyond the typical.
