When you're not quite sure of what to wear, you know that a pair of jeans will always always save the day. While skinny jeans have been around for the longest time, it wasn't until the early 2010s when the skinnies became the most popular denim cut in the fashion scene. Even Lauren Conrad was quoted saying:

"I almost exclusively wear skinny jeans. I'm terrified of any other cut of denim."

While we totally agree that a pair of skinnies is sexy, flattering, and easy to pair with the different pieces in the closet—from basic tees, dressy tops, and even dresses! There is a whole other world of jeans aside from the skinny jeans that we think every girl should definitely explore and try out! So, don't get stuck in a skinnies rut, Candy Girls! Read on as we list down five jeans alternative to your favorite skinnies that are just as fun, fashionable, and flattering!

Flared Jeans

While flared jeans can be intimidating for some girls, this seventies cut can be just as chic as your favorite skinny jeans. Wear flared jeans with a turtleneck for a hip, but chic OOTD, or you can wear it with a cute cropped tee for a quick take on a boho-inspired look for the day.

Culottes

Culottes are simply amazing. They're comfortable like a skirt, and trusty like a pair of pants. Plus, they're fashionably on-point, too! For an edgier take on this feminine fashion trend, opt for a pair in denim! Whether you wear it with a fitted white tee, or a dressy top, you can be sure that you will slay the fashion game without breaking a single sweat.

Cigarette Pants

Thanks to Audrey Hepburn, cigarette pants now have a classic and ultra-chic look. Wear it with a collared shirt for an easy take on Audrey's classic '50s style in the 2010s.

Boyfriend Jeans

Boyfriend jeans are comfy and effortlessly fashionable, too. What's not to love? While these jeans are loose and baggy, it doesn't mean it's sloppy already. You can dress it up with a classic white button-down and accessories, or wear it with a casual tee for a more laid-back look. Plus points if you can bag your boyfriend's, brother's, or dad's jeans!

Mom jeans is not exactly the first thing that pops into your mind when you think sexy or fashionable, but you couldn’t be more wrong because mom jeans are retro cool! Show off the amazing cut of the mom jeans by playing with proportions. Wear it with a fitted tee for an always flattering fit and flare style, or you can wear it with an oversized top for an instant cool girl outfit.

When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.

"Today, I Won"

I always caught feelings for someone, and hoped so much that one day there could a thing between the two of us. I'm usually the one that makes the effort to buy and/or make cute gifts, chats them every other day, and stays up all night with him.

When I was 16, my childhood crush suddenly came back into my life. We'd constantly send updates to each other, recommend favorite songs and talk even the most random things. He'd even text me as early as 6 to just greet me good morning almost everyday. I hoped so much that when I confessed, he suddenly stopped talking to me.

For short, he ghosted me. Those 6 months I spent talking to him, allotting my time for him, and staying up until 3 am for him - all gone in a simple confession. Although I had a few crushes before him, he's the only one that got me in real pain. It was the kind of pain that I never thought I'd experience. It was the kind of pain that I couldn't believe.

After 7 years (it happened back in 2017), I thought he came back into my life to stay, but I guess he's just one of the guys who distanced. I felt a complete loser that time. But during this quarantine, everything was different. I caught feelings for someone else, but he treated me with the best kindness yet.

It happened at 2 am, May 30, 2020, when I impulsively confessed my feelings through messaging him. After saying my feelings, he responded with genuine and kind words. We both even complimented each other. Although the feelings didn't reciprocate, I still found a connection that can't be replaced with any guy.

To my 16 year old self, here I am, 18 and happy. You may have felt that time was the biggest regret and loss, but I'm here to tell you, we won. Today, I won.

Why our high school barkada is the best?

Remembering our high school years entails quite a lot reminiscing of the things we all been through when we were younger. You’ve experience a lot of new things during those 4 wonderful years and did most of them with the few people you consider your barkada. And through a series of all the lunch breaks you had together, the walks you took on the way home, and taking the same classes, you never thought you’d survive, you have made your life’s greatest friends.

Here are some of the reasons why your high school barkada is the best:

1. You figured out early teenage life together. The transition one have undergone from being a kid to a teenager wasn’t easy. For a moment you are not sure whether you should have played with your friends during recess or you should have just sat down and ate your food because you were too old for games. But whatever it is you chose to do, having friends who were as clueless as you make everything feel easier because you know, deep down, you’d figure things out eventually. You just need good company.

2. They were with you during your “jeje“ days. I bet you have pictures taken with Camera360 and Retrica. You also have pictures edited using Pizap with embarrassing captions and you somehow kept some of them so you could have something to post online during their birthdays.

3. They know all your exes. They will never EVER forget the name of an ex-boyfriend, an ex-fling, an ex-crush, and an almost you had. They will remind you of your every questionable love decision but you’ll just laugh anyway while saying “Past is past”.

4. They never judge you. They have welcomed you to their lives when you thought jelly shoes and checkered polos were the bomb! They were quick to have told your teachers that you were not feeling well so you could go home when you really just needed to poop. You tell them every embarrassing story you have and were fine with it.

5. You can always count on them. From the moment you first fell in love and the moment you first had your heart broken, they were with you. They were with you the moment you lost a parent and at moments when you thought you had nothing. Through every break-up and breakthrough, they were there to be your support system.

6. They are your family. Your high school friend’s family is your own family’s extension. Their parents are like your own. Don’t you feel a little kilig whenever your friend’s parents call you “anak”? And then eventually calling them mama and papa became so natural? I felt that, all the time.

7. They will always be your home. They are your place of refuge and security, the place who offers you their hands when you feel lost and the place you run to when you need saving. No matter how much time and distance separate you, they will be the one’s that you always long for and they are the one’s that you will always return to.
