Why You Need Sailor Jeans for Your Next Vacation

Sydne Style shows how to wear sailor jeans in express denim and button down shirt

Living in Los Angeles, I have more pairs of distressed denim than I can count. But rips and tears (or “hole-y jeans,” as my stepdad calls them) aren’t so accepted in cities that don’t share the same relaxed Cali vibes as LA. So when packing for my trip to Europe, I only brought classic washes. But I also wanted a dressier pair I could wear with flats from day to night. Enter the sailor jeans.

I wore my dark wide leg jeans from Paris to Vienna with different tops. I went for a shorter pair that hit directly above the ground so I could hide comfy sneakers underneath. I also plan on wearing them this summer with flat sandals and loafers.

My sailor jeans

I ordered these wide leg jeans right before my trip to Europe. Since I’m on the petite side (I’m 5’3 and a half), I ordered them in the short version. They were the perfect length, which I was thrilled about since I didn’t have time to go to the tailor. I like that they zip on the side so you don’t have to worry about all the buttons!

My favorite way I wore my sailor jeans was palace hopping in Vienna (we visited to the Belvedere museum to see Gustav Klimt’s “The Kiss,” where these photos were taken, then Hofburg). I went for a ’70s vibe with a loose white button-down shirt and my fave accessory of the trip, a silk scarf. It was super windy that day so I tied my hair back and later in the day used my scarf as a hair accessory. As for the bag? I was a souvenir from Paris that I can’t stop wearing!

    They look really cool, not gonna lie. I used to have a pair of sailor shorts when I was younger and I loved them, you’ve inspired me to actually think about getting a new pair of shorts or jeans, like yours.

    It’s great to have something that inspires you. Traveling charges us with new emotions and this is great. It is only necessary to buy a plane ticket and book a hotel , and go to an unknown path

    Thank you for sharing your experience. That’s right, the better you prepare for the trip, the more you will be satisfied with it. This applies to both clothing and direction. I usually find a lot of interesting details here that are worth considering to make the trip more interesting.

    I always carefully select my wardrobe when traveling, because I don’t like to take too much, jeans take pride of place in it. But, there are things more important – for example, a map of the airport. When I was in Miami, without the MIA map, I would just get lost and there would be no time to wear my favorite jeans. I highly recommend using it.
