Boyfriend Jeans: An Epitome of Effortless Chic




Boyfriend jeans look nothing like their sibling the skinny jeans and a lot like their other sibling the mommy jeans. This trend came on the fashion scene many years ago. The 'style super highway' embraced it and is not letting go. I don’t believe it’s complaining and whats best is that the hug gets tighter. So much so it's not only stolen and staying in the spotlight but has become well, a staple. I am a fan, totally crushing on them! Scratch that cos that crush has developed into a beautiful and full blown love affair. 
You?


What are Boyfriend Jeans
Simply put, its a pair of jeans with a relaxed and slouchy fit. They are not only stylish, they are comfy and trendy. They come in a gazillion different ways. Shredded as in distressed, rolled up cuffs, spot bleached, appliqued etc.


Ways to Style
I’ll be darned if judging by their rough and tumble nature, boyfriend jeans are seen as perfect for mostly laid back looks. They can be dressed up with blazers, classic white shirts and trench vests/ coats and print tops tucked in and finished with a waist cinching belt, the perfect heels and of course a bag to tie it all together. 

If you belong to the school that believes they are casuals, then go for crop tops and simple tees when styling these menswear inspired pieces. Camis look perfect too specially as Spring and ultimately Summer are gearing up to roll in.

A fitted or slim chambray shirt over boyfriend jeans is a perfect denim on denim pairing. The tight top/ lose pants effect creates a good balance in proportion. Finish off with ankle boots, pumps or combat boots. The ankle grazing length is perfect to show off your killer heels anyhow. OTK and thigh high boots don’t really do this trend justice.
If sporty is what floats your boat, then go for a nice pair of on trend sneakers to add to the boyish charm from your jeans. A sweatshirt tied around your waist adds a playful and cool flair.

Any which way you style your favorite pair, boyfriend jeans never fail to come out looking as cool and comfy as they feel. Not to mention effortless and chic
 How do you style yours?


Today's Look
Today I’m taking a style cue from none other than the boys and showing a pair of boyfriend jeans perfectly street styled. Paired with a long sleeve black tee, a grey jacket and finished with combat boots and a veiled beanie. I’ve worn this same pair to death and in different ways. Show a different way? I aim to please, just ask, :).

Thanks for all the love from here and here.

  1. Wow,oh my goodness, you look stunning! I really love the fishnet beanie. ♥
    I've tried wearing boyfriend jeans but it looks too bulky on me. But you, I think you pulled this look perfectly!

    Thank you for the tips. I think I might give it another shot!

  2. I absolutely loved how you styled these ripped boyfriend jeans. Those boots are so fabulous. I love the touch of fur and that bag is very chic. Perfect accessories as well! That beanie is super adorable and I love your sunglasses....and how cute is that ombre! Perfect from head to toe. You look phenomenally stylish!!!

    Speaking of boyfriend jeans. I don't think I ever purchased a pair of boyfriend jeans but I have stolen quite a few from my significant other. I love stealing clothes from him and I think he likes when I steal from him. Even when he complains about it:).

    I do agree that there is something effortless about this type of jeans but they can be styled in a variety of way. We can make them more dressed up by styling them with heels. Why does everything always look better with heels?;)...or we can wear them in a casual and sporty way. I've seen a lot of girls wear them with shirts - and that's a cute look too.

    p.s. so cool that you and Lucy (that designer) are neighbours. I stumbled across an interview with her on YouTube (that's how I learned of the giveaway), she's the sweetest thing! She does all the sewing herself- can you imagine that? She said she loves sewing and that she doesn't want to hire anyone to do it. I thought that was so adorable. Some people just enjoy making things with their hands.

I just haven't found a pair that don't make me look wide and stubby yet, but I'm still searching for all the reasons you've shared. The ones I've tried on, though they did my body no justice, were comfy and I loved the vibe. Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having the best start to your week so far!

  82. Boyfriend jeans are definitely a comfortable and easy clothing item to wear... I like how you can dress them up or down. They really are much more enjoyable to wear since they are looser and baggy, it's a nice change from a girls jean that can be tighter xox

    I hope you are doing well Idu, I have been super busy with year end, it is our tax time here in Canada and everyone is scrambling to make sure everything is done on time... I am glad it is coming to an end, it means I will have a little time to myself soon, so I can write more and keep up with my blogs xox
