After a year-long break with our beloved jeans, how do we get over it? The answer is, like any other relationship, go slow. Don’t even look in the direction of your skinny pair; it’s going too fast too soon. Remember, you always work from home and fries are your favorite snack. Explore your options, find a comfortable and cozy pair that seems like the right transition after 365 days (and more) of pajamas and joggers.
If you think there is a shortage of alternatives, let us help you. Scroll down for the seven best styles of jeans that aren’t your ultra-slim fit.
