I mentioned that I wanted to try some lower priced wide leg jeans for comparison with my pricier versions. Good news for budget fashionistas who want to try this look -- it is available at the box stores in well fitting versions!
I ordered this Old Navy version thinking I would cut it off for crops, maybe. I did not notice it has slight distressing in the photos. But amazingly, I like it! A lighter weight jean than the one I got from Everlane, a bit drapier. It has some poly in the fabrication. Very comfortable. TTS. I got it on substantial discount so it was, as Jenni so memorably put it of a skirt that wasn't, "cheap as chips."
I also ordered this ankle length wide leg crop from GAP in petite, so it would be the right length. I really like it! I think this one also comes in other colourways. 99% cotton, 1% elastane.
I also ordered the lilac linen BF shirt from GAP to try. Not the best linen, but acceptable. It is very long, as you can see. I think I will keep and wear open over something else or else tied at the waist, like this.
If you are eager to try the wide A line style, but you're on a budget, I would say the options out there are good and worth investigating.
Happy to answer any questions about these or the others.
