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.
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 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, :).
