Sarah Jessica Parker Is Bringing Back This Confusing, Forgotten Denim Trend

SJP bringing back gray jeans

When I mentioned to my co-worker that Sarah Jessica Parker has been wearing gray jeans recently, she immediately realized that it’s been a minute since she thought about gray jeans. And reader, it’s probably been a minute since you’ve thought about gray jeans, too, because they’ve practically gone extinct. Unlike low-rise jeans, gray jeans have yet to stage a coup and break the internet. Instead, they faded out of the zeitgeist and into obscurity without Twitter or Instagram even noticing. But leave it to SJP to revive a forgotten trend in a time where fashion doesn’t even make sense anymore.

While visiting her recently opened flagship shoe store in New York City, Parker wore a gray Canadian tuxedo. Originally, I hadn’t even noticed, as I was too distracted by her babydoll shoes. But then she posted an Instagram photo with her back to the camera, across the street from the MoMA. Not even the exciting announcement about the museum re-opening could distract from the sight of her denim, which blended in perfectly with her standard gray sweatshirt.

Gray jeans are confusing: They’re jeans, so by nature they’re casual, but their coloring makes them look more like dress-up pants. You don’t just throw on a pair of gray jeans — you think about it first. That being said, considering jeans and a t-shirt has been the go-to look for these COVID times, gray jeans are a nice way to switch things up. Even if they’re not as casual as classic blue denim, they work just as well with pretty much anything in your closet. 

Considering Sarah Jessica Parker has been wearing the trend for the past couple of weeks, it’s guaranteed to be everywhere soon. And you know what? I don’t hate it. At least it’s not low-rise jeans.
