One of this seasons trend isn’t only coming from out of your own closet. One of the hottest looks for spring involves stealing from a guy’s wardrobe…introducing boyfriend jeans. A boyfriend jean is either a literal pair of your boyfriend’s jeans or a pair of jeans that looks and fits like it was borrowed from a guy – loose fit, low rise, and cuffed hems. Many women tend to look straight pass this style because it doesn’t show figures and because they are afraid that it will make them appear frumpy. If worn improperly, this is true, but here are some tips on the best ways to wear the boyfriend jean for that effortlessly chic look:
1. Roll up the cuffs. Sometimes you won’t have to worry about cuffing your boyfriend jeans because they are already at the perfect length, but if your pair is super long you’ll need to cuff the bottoms. Roll them above your ankles if you’re wearing heels, or just below if you’re wearing flat sandals. This way you are showcasing the femininity of your outfit…the shoes.
2. Keep it casual. Boyfriend jeans look best with a plain tee or tank. It’s a look that’s very low maintenance and informal. You can opt to pair it with a blazer or fun moto jacket just cause but just remember with this look… less is more.
3. Belt It. Since boyfriend jeans are usually really big and baggy, you’ll probably need a belt to keep them up. Even if you don’t, a belt makes a great addition to the outfit. Try adding a skinny belt with color or print (such as animal print) to make the look a little more fun.
4. Check your footwork. These jeans are made to show off your ankles and feet, so don’t wear boyfriend jeans with boots or sneakers. Instead, wear them with a pair of gladiator sandals, flip flops, high heels, or ballet flats to add feminine details. Just always remember… boyfriend jeans but girlfriend shoes.
