Boyfriend jeans 101


If you’re looking for the perfect fit, something that’s not too clingy and sits just right boyfriend jeans is what you need, it will give you all the comfort you need. It’s one of those rare fashion birds that is as beloved as it is divisive. The baggy, slouchy fit meant to give off the vibe that you’re wearing your man’s jeans has a lot of lovers and as much haters. I think there’s plenty of ways to wear them and I’m here to show you all of them.

I’m a big believer that the boyfriend jean as a staple piece, every gal should own a pair. The jeans look great paired with everything from a basic white T-shirt to a lace blouse, and they’re very versatility in terms of shoe choice: you can wear them with everything from white converse shoes to sky-high stilettos. You can wear the jeans in a million different ways and I have 5 tips for you.

1. Risk-taking is key.
Here’s a little secret: wearing boyfriend jeans is kinda risky, because it goes against the belief that stylish girlies should wear figure-flattering pieces all the time. Once you took the risk, might as well go all the way; I love a girlie who isn’t afraid to take a risk
2. With a basic white T-shirt.
If there’s one thing you can get away with when you’re wearing boyfriend jeans, it’s not trying too hard and I’m not talking about spending 2 hours trying to end up looking like you didn’t try too hard I’m talking about genuinely not trying too hard. The whole purpose of a boyfriend jean is that you just woke up, rolled out of bed and threw on a pair of your man’s beaten up jeans. Throwing on an oversize white tee and minimal accessories makes a lot of sense. If you’re going for a casual look wear converse and if you want a more formal look go with heels.
3. Mix athletic wear.
Some so called experts say that you have to wear a boyish shirt and girly shoes but I totally disagree. They can look just as stylish with a pair of trendy sneakers, a cute clutch, and a plaid shirt.
4. Don’t fear the rips.
A common trait in boyfriend jeans is rips, tears, and holes. There’s definitely a right way and a wrong way to wear these. I recommend you stay clear of more punk-inspired versions, and pair the ripped jeans with polished staples like blazers, fur and structured bags.
5. Go for a darker wash.
Most boyfriend jeans are a very light, almost-white wash. But every now and then you’ll find a slouchy pair in a dark wash; these are fun to work with because you can pair them with neutrals without worrying that the look is too light.
