Hipster jeans

I was in a store the other day when I overheard a woman expressing to the sales clerk that she didn't want "hipster jeans".  I didn't stick around long enough to figure out what hipster jeans were, so I was left to make my own guesses.  Now, I may be a tad out of touch these days, but I feel like she was referring to skinny jeans.  Hipsters wear those, right?

*Little edit on this: The woman was having a conversation with a friend earlier about what hipsters wear, so I took in this context, not in the way of jeans that sit at the waist. I should stop eavesdropping, huh. 

Though I haven't seen many people wearing them around, I'm quite a fan of the flare-bottom jeans that act as a nice remedy for the painted-on skinny epidemic.  Being the saver that I am, I managed to dig up my old flared jeans from 5 years ago (that miraculously still fit!).  I'm a bit torn on these jeans though- I mean, yes they're comfier and all, but the flare makes the ends of the pants all tattered.  And they tend to cover up cute shoes.

So I've decided to go for a happy medium between the two- straight cut.  All the comfort of a flare with the chicness of a skinny.

What's your preferred cut?

And hey, it's Music Monday!
It's been a little gloomy outside lately, so I've got my gloomy day/lazy Sunday/I-really-don't-wanna-move-and-just-wanna-stay-in-bed-all-day (the three are interchangeable) playlist going.  I know Mondays are usually hectic and annoying, so here- chillax to this tune:


  1. flared all the way! I like them boot cut so I can wear my boots...I am also on team Anti-skinny jeans..not cute.

  2. Hipster jeans are the jeans that sit really low on the hips instead of the waist. Doesn't matter if they are skinny, flared or whatever... my mum complains about hipster jeans. lol

  3. I've a pair of flared cut from a couple of years ago which I still wear and also 2 pairs of skinny jeans. I rarely wear jeans anyway so I'm not too fussed, tbh. However, I can't do hipster jeans, I prefer mine higher

  4. I love straight cuts too! I think they are the most versatile option because they don't look outdated like flared jeans but at the same time arent uncomfortable like skinny jeans.
