Just Say No

No More Buttons or Zippers

Hey, guys! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

It’s time to get comfy, lovelies! When I discovered leggings a year or so ago (yes, I’m always late to the party), I realized the gloriousness of their comfort. We can have comfort and style? Yes, please! Recently, I’ve taken that a step further.

It all started when I was reading one of my favorite blogs, Living in Yellow. She is also all about stylish comfort. She was asking why we’re still wearing pants with buttons and zippers. I thought, yes, why are we still wearing these things? Since then, I’ve also heard co-workers and friends say the same thing. Clearly, this is a problem that needs to be fixed ASAP. So, I went on a quest for some elastic waist jeans.

You might be asking yourself, “Elastic waist jeans? Aren’t those ‘Grandma jeans’?” Fair question. The hubby had the same reaction when I told him what I was doing. His reply was something along the lines of ‘make sure they look cute and not like Grandma jeans.’ Apparently, the ‘Grandma jeans’ notion is far-reaching! As I began my search, though, I realized that pull-on jeans (that’s what they call them now) are a thing and that they can be as cute and style as classic jeans. These aren’t your grandma’s pull on jeans!

Here are a few of my favorites I found through my search:

JCPenney: Mixit Denim Stretch Leggings: $36

As usual, I turned my sites to JCPenney first. I love me some JCP! I found quite a few options but settled on these leggings from Mixit. In the past, I’ve had good luck with Mixit leggings. I have a pair in black that never sag as the day goes on. There’s nothing worse than sagging leggings, amiright? These did not disappoint either! Even on day 2 wear, they stayed up and looked fabulous!

Amazon: PajamaJeans Women’s Bootcut Stretch Knit Denim Jeans: $27-$50

My next stop was Amazon. The selection on Amazon is fabulous. You can find just about anything you could ever dream of on the online shopping site, including pull on jeans. I was intrigued by these jeans from PajamaJeans. First off, any jeans that contain the word ‘pajama’ sound super comfy. Secondly, they look so so stylish. They are priced a bit on the higher end, so I didn’t end up purchasing them. They’re definitely on my wishlist, though!

Amazon: Riders by Lee Indigo Women’s Pull-on Waist Smoother Bootcut Jean: $26

These were another Amazon find. I loved how stylish these jeans looked and, of course, the smoothing aspect of them as well. I couldn’t wait until they arrived on my doorstep! Sadly, though, these are heading back. They were so difficult to put on. The waist fits loosely but the pants are tight through the thighs and hips. I could tell they were going to be terribly saggy and uncomfortable.

Walmart: Women’s Totally Shaping Pull on Bootcut Jeans: $20

Levi's Women's Totally Shaping Pull On Bootcut Jeans

Walmart has really been stepping up their game lately. Have you been on their website recently? It’s been totally revamped and looks much more like their higher end department store counterparts. Check it out if you haven’t already. It’s impressive. Anyway, I decided to make Walmart my next stop on my pull on jean finding adventure. They also did not disappoint. I was drawn to these Levi pull on jeans. I can’t even believe I’m saying Levi and pull on in the same sentence! I haven’t purchased these yet, but I cannot wait to try them!

Okay, let’s put these pull-on jeans to the test! In one shot I’m wearing the standard button and zipper jeans. In the other, I’m wearing the pull-ons. Can you tell which is which?

Would you wear pull on jeans?

That’s all for today. Thanks for stopping by! See you guys in my next post!




Answer: A is the standard jeans; B is the pull on jeans.  Did you get it right?
