After cargo jeans proved to be a solution to my denim strike, I ventured into a little try-on session — this time in search of double-waisted jeans. In case you missed it, double-waisted denim is this year’s response to the ultra low-rise jeans we’ve had to endure over the past two years, consisting of an extra layer of fabric that makes it look like you have two pairs of jeans on. But, surprise! It’s just the one. I hit up a few local stores to try a few: an Eloquii number that featured a two-toned waist, as well as a Mango dark-wash version. While both appealed to my high-waisted millennial sensibility, the straight-leg shape proved that skinny jeans were the main obstacle to my relationship with denim. I didn’t buy any, but I’ll be back.
