Do these pants in light blue look dated? Chaps Straight-Leg Jeans
I think they are not the most current trend HOWEVER I would wear them because I wear what I like and don't care too much what other people think. It's not that I think I have great fashion sense; it's that I don't take fashion that seriously. I like things that are flattering but not necessarily trendy.

The nc.com fashion police will chime in any moment and help you out
Yes, but they are not horrible, you could still wear them if you had to. Well I do. I have some old ones that color that I wear from time to time. Definitely not when I'm trying to look nice though.
I dont understand what is or isnt in style about them.

Is it the faded wash on the front?

I like style but im not a slave to fashion.

I think the mom-jeans style coupled with the color make them look dated. If you're set on that style, I'd recommend getting a darker wash. If you like the lighter color, go with a more current style.

Thet dont seem high waisted to me. But I have such a short waist everything is high waisted on me.

The color is a little light and they seem short to me, but like the rise, I assumed that was the model.

Thanks for your opinions and suggestions! Do you have any recommendations for modern straight leg jeans?
It really depends on your body type. I don't think anyone can really rec jeans...you just gotta try them on.

Right now, I'm wearing a straight legged pair of Joe's jeans. Love them! Normally, I don't spend this much on jeans but I was really, really feeling them that day.

Gap has nice straight legged jeans but they rarely look good on me...just on everyone else.

remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
LI: KCKT or CJSL
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
