In Partnership With
WATCH: Man Repeller x Topshop Presents Dancing Jeans

In partnership with Topshop.

For the sake of your time and my finger strength, I will not recount how often I’ve spent tens of minutes fretting over bad outfits in the mirror only to settle on jeans and a T-shirt. In the last WEEK. Just know that it’s, like, six times. Such is the power of good jeans — every time I stray, I find my way back to them. They’re my sartorial home.

This translates directly to the outfit regret I feel whenever I leave the house without them. (Leandra wrote an entire story about this once!) It’s possible my jeans are holding me emotionally hostage, now that I think about it. But all I wish for in those moments is that a fairy godmother would tap me on the shoulder and fix everything. Or at the very least, for a friend to be like, “Here, take these jeans, I don’t even need them even though they’re perfect.”

But I don’t know. This is just my fantasy.

Which, thanks to Topshop and their spring denim line, we’ve lived out in the above video to a dreamy T. Leandra is the fairy godmother (duh), and the rest of us are the chumps who picked the wrong outfit. It’s genuinely V close to real life for me. Click play for a reenactment of the movie Pay It Forward but themed around good jeans instead of good deeds. (They’re not so different in this case, IMO.)

Then maybe get your butt into some Topshop jeans and never take them off.

    Love this video, soo funny! How do all you ladies get away with not wearing make up?! So jealous! Unfortunately, Topshop jeans don’t fit my big butt, small waist combo. I’ve had to return every pair I’ve bought. Found that Gap jeans fit better. Oh well.
