Once shunned as the most cringe-worthy of cuts, Dad jeans are the latest fashion trend we love here at Mainline Menswear. The slightly baggy, kind-of too short, and 80’s inspired wash might seem like an odd choice at first, but it turns out the Dads were right all along. Your Dad Jeans can be worn for multiple occasions, from semi-smart to casual, and work well with either t-shirts or shirts without any struggle.
As we mentioned earlier, these versatile jeans are always slightly baggy and usually feature a light wash colour. But you can get darker Dad Jeans if that’s more your style. We recommend you embrace the shorter length and roll the hems up to show off a pair of (matching) socks, complete with your favourite trainers. This is the quickest way to earn the preppy 80s’ look that’s gained popularity this year.
Putting the 80s’ style to the side for a second here, from jackets to jeans, denim is the fashion trend that is never going to go out of style. Making Dad jeans a safe choice if you want to shake things up/ It’s time to upgrade the hardest-working section of your wardrobe with an easy alternative to your usual straight cut jeans.
How To Wear Dad Jeans
For an effortlessly smart vibe try pairing a pair of Dad Jeans with an open-collar shirt and white trainers. Another option is to embrace the 80s’ full throttle, and wear a baggy t-shirt tucked into your Dad Jeans; complete the look with some retro trainers for a relaxed vibe with a preppy twist.
Another tip to take away this season is to not hold back. Go bold and don’t be afraid to embrace double denim with a jacket and dad jeans combo. Just try to make your denim different shades to avoid that cowboy look.
Versatile, comfortable and appropriate for a range of occasions, our range of designer jeans and denim jackets is sure to impress no matter what the occasion.
