Wide Leg Pants
I equate our relationship with our skinny jeans to the one we have with our long-term boyfriend, but sadly that relationship has rupture and we’re on to dating with flared pants. We’ve been wearing skinnies for as long as we’ve been dating our ex-boyfriend meaning we’re about as comfortable in them as one could ever hope to be and we know exactly how to wear them (or in our boyfriend’s case how to spend a Friday night with him).
