What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you hear “boyfriend jeans”?
We all have our go to pieces. Some people live in jeans, others in dresses. Everyone has their preference on what comfort means to them. I’ve always been more of a dress girl but I wanted to get out of my comfort zone to have a wider range of outfits.
- Don’t pair boyfriend jeans with an oversized top unless you can tuck it into your jeans. Since the jeans are already loose fitting, you want something on top that is structured or form fitting.
- Don’t pair it with anything higher than an ankle boot. Your ankles should be showing.
- Don’t wear a style that is too baggy. The pant legs should be loose fitting but you shouldn’t be swimming in them.
- Do opt for a boyfriend jean with some character whether it be a certain wash or something with some rips or tears.
- Do cuff the bottom of the jeans to add a little polish to your entire outfit.
- Do opt for a darker wash if you want to make your bottom half appear slimmer.
- Do pair the jeans with a t-shirt or blouse tucked in at the waist.
- Do pair the jeans with a pump, strappy heel, booty or low top converse sneaker.
So here’s my take on boyfriend jeans. I didn’t want to style my boyfriend jeans with something that’s always done like a crop top or t-shirt so I pulled my Sublime wife beater (which I’ve had since high school) out of my trunk where I store old clothes. I opted for black pumps since they soften up the entire look. I added a vegan leather jacket and black fedora to accessorize.
