Easy Breezy Denim

15 Relaxed Pairs Of Jeans Perfect For Winter-To-Spring Dressing

A brand new pair of jeans is always an exciting prospect. Even better? Finding a pair that combines the look of denim with cozy, soft materials. While denim is a versatile option year-round, the rigid, stiff material is less than ideal when creating comfortable spring-ready outfits. Hybrid pants with denim-like elements (think 5-pocket styling, fading, distressed details) are breathable, easy to style, and have unmatched comfort. And with some of the internet’s favorite brands like Rag & Bone and Free People dishing out new iterations of these comfortable pants, we decided to pull together a list of easy, breezy denim styles perfect for the transitional season.

The stiff, raw feeling of new jeans might fade over time, but with the ones on this list, there’s no need to wait. So you can relax in style, we looked high and low for the easiest and breeziest denim on the internet. From drawstring joggers to boyfriend fits, the list ahead features 15 pairs of pants that you'll not only love, but want to wear every day. Scroll to shop them all.
