Until recently, as far I was concerned #HotGirlSummer was still going strong and you were going to have to pry those vibes out of my cold, dead hands. With two weeks of August and plenty of sweltering days and hot nights still on the horizon, why would I start shopping for fall and winter clothes?
I’m the type of person who will comb through online sales looking for summery dresses, swimsuits, bike shorts, and other things than I can wear until the last second of the season. I don’t care when summer technically ends! As long as it’s still hot outside, I have one more reason to buy another puka shell anklet.
And then…I saw this pair of jeans from Uniqlo U.
As soon as ELLE.com Market Editor, Justine Carreon, sent me a link this was me…
…running away from my summer wardrobe and straight to Uniqlo to try these on.
So what’s so great about these particular jeans? First, that high waist. Perfect to handle all the lobster rolls and Aperol spritzes I’ve had in the past few months and for tucking in tops, my preferred style. Second, the thick, 100 percent cotton denim will wear well wash after wash. And last but not certainly not least, the wide leg silhouette, tapered just-so, is made for ankle boots and for wearing an extra layer of Uniqlo heat tech when the weather turns frigid. Oh and one more thing: the price. At $39.90 I can buy two pairs. Fall shopping, let’s go.
