As I mentioned eairlier this week, a friend of mine is visiting Europe from the US. Recently we started talking about the personalities of different cities she’s seen and we began comparing them to jeans. You know you’re a shopping addict when… As silly as it sounds, jeans – like cities – give off certain vibes and have distinct personalities. You wouldn’t wear a pair of heavily destroyed boyfriend jeans to high tea, would you?
I thought it would be fun to pair some of the cities I’ve visited over here with their corresponding jean twin. If you’ve ever visited any of these places I’d love to hear if you agree with my match ups! Without further adieu, I present you with the best jeans for Europe.
Laid back, comfortable, beautiful, and beyond cool – Prague and perfectly worn-in boyfriend jeans are a total match. These are perfect for relaxing and enjoying some gulasch and a Pils in a centuries-old restaurant.
Ornate, clean, and formal – only the dressiest of jeans will do for Austria’s capital city. A pair of block heels or leather booties make these perfect for meeting friends for coffee or watching an orchestra play some Mozart.
One part classic, one part fashion-forward, high rise denim with a cigarette leg (see what I did there) is the perfect blend of elegant and effortless for a day in Paris. Pair it with a striped tee or bodysuit for that Parisian-chic vibe.
A stunning, laid back city with an underlying bohemian vibe – embroidered denim could not be more Budapest if it tried. Wear these while sipping a glass of local Tokaj wine and listening to music on the edge of the Danube.
Sleek, timeless, and so posh, there’s no better match for London than a classic black skinny. The high rise and exposed buttons of these add a fashion forward vibe while still looking perfectly classic and chic.
Charming, hip, and full of clever Scandinavian design – Copenhagen is the place to be for beautiful style with a bit of edge. These jeans are structured, but the intentional, angular rips add that dose of cool the city is known for. Add a pair of sneakers, cocoon coat, and a Carlsberg beer and you’re ready to explore.
As the home of Oktoberfest, there’s no better jean for Munich than a pair of Lederhosen (literally translated: leather pants) – the name of the traditional suede shorts/pants Bavarians wear to the Fall event. This modern take can be paired with a big cozy sweater and some suede booties for hopping in and out of beer halls between sightseeing.
Have you ever been to any of these cities? Do you agree these are the best jeans for Europe, tell me in the comments below!
