When Gen Z declared that skinny jeans were over, I was honestly relieved. I have very muscular calves, and getting my legs into skinny jeans was a struggle that I’m way too familiar with. Although I was initially on board, I later realized that I may have been too quick to toss my skinny jeans into the donation pile. Why, you ask? Well, in the colder months, I love wearing knee-high boots with sweaters, and you know what doesn’t fit inside knee-high boots? Wide-leg jeans. In an effort to replenish my skinny-jean arsenal and find a few pairs that even Gen Z would approve of, I tried out three pairs from Good American.
This was my first time trying out Good American denim, and I have to admit, they are impressive. All of the jeans I tested have a gap-proof waistband, which is a feature I’ve never experienced before but one that I can really appreciate. Yes, that means not having a gap in between my back and pants when I bend down or issues with having to constantly pull my pants up because the waistband continually stretches out. You can sign me up. Keep scrolling to see the skinny-jean picks that have now earned a front-row spot in my closet.
