Do you have a preferred philosophy when it comes to jeans: Sexy and skinny, or loose and comfy?

What do you love most about your favorite denim pieces?

K: "My jacket can be thrown over any dress I wear. I wear dresses because it's only one piece of clothing and it's a complete outfit. My jean jacket goes with everything, and I can layer under or over it in case it's cold."

R: "That I don’t have to wash them."
