So you may be seeing light denim everywhere right now, and not just on women. The trend is very 2019, and although I had to talk Zack into trying it, he now loves it. Especially these jeans from J. Crew. They’re so soft and comfortable, and are pretty much perfect for summer because they’re lightweight and light-colored. (Just cuff them at the bottom to replace shorts.) They’re cut slim in the thighs and legs, but have enough stretch to not be super-tight.
Oh, and the really cool thing about these “eco” jeans? They’re crafted at a factory using renewable energy and recycled water—one of the most sustainable denim manufacturing facilities in the world. (Solar power and miniature windmills save the facility 5.3 million kilowatts of energy per hour.) Um . . . that’s pretty awesome. (Just don’t spill ketchup on them.)
