So you’ve finally decided to try your hand (or legs) at boyfriend jeans. These are one of our favorite silhouettes, because of its refreshing break from the skinny or flare jean. The comfort level is unparalleled - it’s like wearing your coziest sweats in public and getting away with it. No longer just a trend, the boyfriend jean is one of the most versatile pieces you can own. Dressed up or dressed down, from the ballpark to brunch with your girls - it’s a wardrobe workhorse that’s easier to pull of than you might think.
Our stylists pulled together of their favorite ways to style the boyfriend jean:
#1: Weekend Cool
Boyfriend jeans work so well for a relaxed vibe due to their shape - so play that it up with one of your favorite tees. Go basic or graphic, just make sure it’s just a bit fitted (not too tight and not too loose) to create a perfect proportion. Add a pair of your favorite sneakers and you’re off for weekend errands in style.
#2: Casual Friday
If you work in a casual environment where denim is acceptable, skip your skinnies and opt for a looser shape. Pair it with a simple button down to add a bit of polish. Then add your favorite heels and a fun necklace for a few extra style points. Voila - your work wardrobe just got a super stylish update!
#3: Night Out
Your boyfriend jeans get a major upgrade with a great heel and a special top. We love the punch of color and use of metallic with this option, but consider pairing with your favorite strappy sandals or bold heels, and top it with a gorgeous silk blouse with a special shape. It’s a great way to mix casual with dressy elevating your look with just the switch of a few key pieces.
