The boyfriend jean is becoming my skinny jean replacement for winter and will transition beautifully into Spring. I love the nonchalant, carefree vibe that fellow boyfriend jeans wearers embody. I had written a post a few months back
and really wanted to branch off of that.
I recently visited a local consignment shop and noticed this amazing distressed pair of jeans, I had to have them. While searching the racks I came across an amazing Free People tee, baggy and worn, perfect for that look. I wanted to wear the two of them together but it just seemed so…. big. Then I remember tuck or twist and make it more “effortless”. So I did a simple knot in the lower left of the shirt and Tah-Dah, boyfriend chic!
That being said, to keep the look light and feminine, it does need to be worn with caution. I often feel frumpy if I don’t have the right details! So here are some quick rules I follow when styling:
Whether it’s your hair, top or makeup make sure you have that girly flair somewhere. Try a red lip or a lace tank.
Be it a fabulous piece of costume jewellery, charmed arm or a statement clutch-add a big bold piece!
We all don’t have that endless torso or long legs so keeping a piece structured is key. (Body to baggy ratio) Tucking in your tee or knotting it like I did along with a tailored blazer will give you the look you want!
Take it to the Streets
Last but not least… Taking your boyfriend jeans for a night on the town? Dress them way up with a multi-tier necklace, leather jacket, and a top knot! Believe me, styled or not, boyfriend jeans will amp up your cool girl style.
