Jeans are probably my favourite type of pants to wear. They’re a common item in people’s wardrobe, their effect is standard regardless of what body shape wears them, and they’re just an all round material for what they are – durable and predictable.
The start of the middle age spread however has rendered my usual practice of wearing jeans all day unsustainable. I needed something that wasn’t as informal (and lets face it, lovingly slobby) as sweat pants, but which wasn’t just loose shorts. A pair of pants that didn’t make me look like I was having a Bridget Jones moment forlornly stretched out on the couch eating cereal out of a box because all that was left in the fridge was a mouldy bit of hardened cheese.
Enter lightweight denim; half the weight of standard denim but with all the material benefits and properties of normal denim. Mine is from Grana, of course. Basically you still get that durable fabric that is hardy but none of the heaviness and stiffness that full denim can sometimes be.
Since we’re in autumn now, lightweight denim is too perfect for this transitional period – light enough to keep you cool during the warm days, warm enough to ward the chill off in the mornings and evenings. Bonus is that the waist is elastic, so full comfort without sacrificing form and appearance!
Why did I not get myself a pair of these earlier. New favourite pants have been found.

Now, this post hasn’t been sponsored, but if you’re interested in getting yourself a pair, cut and paste this link (http://www.grana.com/r/5952) and you will receive 10% off your order (and gives me $29 in store credit). Only available for first time buyers I’m afraid, but Grana is a great brand to wear and support.
