Get it, girl! Jinger Duggar celebrated Jesus’ birthday by rocking some very fashionable — albeit kinda risqué for a Counting On star — pants. The 24-year-old TLC personality showed off her ripped (yes, ripped, as in distressed, as in holes that show skin) jeans in an Instagram photo posted on Christmas Day.
In the pic, Jinger cuddles up to her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, as they look out onto a lawn full of festive lights. “A winter wonderland!” she wrote. While the decorations are cool and all, the real star of this ‘gram is Jinger’s bare knee cap. A handful of fans applauded the once-conservatively dressed Duggar daughter for her brave sartorial choice.
“Yes to the pants again! So much more comfy than those awful dresses you used to have to wear!” one fan wrote, while another commented, “Any time a Duggar girl wears pants seriously gives me hope. #Yaaassssjinger.”
Of course, this isn’t the first time Jinger has proudly sported a set of trousers. Earlier this month, she wore pants while walking through the snow like a rebellious winter angel. Days later, she donned a short skirt and high heels at a holiday party. Jinger, who fled her family’s home state of Arkansas in 2016 to move to Texas with hubby Jeremy, has seemingly made a conscious effort to bend the rules she previously abided by growing up in a super-conservative Christian household.
And it appears as though Jinger’s (relatively) wild streak has rubbed off on Jill Duggar, who has recently said buh-bye to her parents’ strict dress code. She’s worn pants on more than one occasion this year, and has even been wearing a nose ring!
The Duggar girls previously opened up about why they once shied away from showing too much skin. "We do not dress modestly because we are ashamed of the body God has given us; quite the contrary. We realize that our body is a special gift from God and that He intends for it to be shared only with our future husband," Jinger, Jill, Jana, and Jessa Duggar wrote in their 2014 book, Growing Up Duggar. "We avoid low-cut, cleavage-showing, gaping, or bare-shouldered tops; and when needed, we were an undershirt. We try to make it a habit to always cover the top of our shirt with our hand when we bend over. We don’t want to play the peek-a-boo game with our neckline.”
