I first heard the the term Balloon Jeans a couple of seasons ago. I didn’t really like the sound of it. Made me think of puffy, blown up, something like that. And now it turns out that these jeans are actually becoming quite popular and sought after.
About the look of Balloon jeans – well, kind of a high waisted mom jean with wider, but tapered, legs and mostly in a cropped length. A mix between a tapered boyfriend and mom jean.
And since Balloon jeans are very present in a lot of denim collections this season, I went to a couple of stores and tried on a few different brands.
Truthfully, I am not a goner. I mean, these jeans are different, true, and I love anything different. But my main problem with these jeans in general is that they are really high waisted, and I am so not doing that anymore. Otherwise, if they were a lower rise, I can definitely see myself in a pair.
So, if you are a fan of high waisted jeans and are looking for something different, a new style which will make it interesting for you to leave your skinnies, straight, and wide legs in your closet for a while, then these are it.
