When I talk about fashion, I can’t help thinking about this sentence: ” Only fashion goes out of fashion, and that’s fashion that catches on” (translation from the French :”Il n’y a qu’une chose qui se démode:  la mode, et c’est la mode qui emporte le succès”)

What’s a boyfriend jean?

it’s either literally a pair of guy’s jeans, or a pair of jeans that looks and fits like it was borrowed from a guy – loose fit, low rise, cuffed hems. Of course, this look doesn’t exclude single ladies. There are plenty of budget-friendly boyfriend jeans available for purchase in stores everywhere – no boys required.
Now obviously, depending on your size and your boyfriend’s size, you don’t have to literally steal a pair of jeans from your guy to rock this trend. Instead, you can buy this style of jeans in a store, or pick up a pair of smaller guy’s jeans at a vintage shop. To save money, I recommend buying these vintage or stealing from a guy, because this is such a trendy item that will be out of style fast. No point buying new “boyfriend jeans” if you ask me lol!

The best ways to wear it

 Here are some tips on the best ways to wear the boyfriend jean for that effortlessly chic look

Roll up the cuffs.

If your jeans are short enough, you won’t need to do this, but if they’re 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. Having your jeans drag along the ground is never a good look.

With ballet flats, sandals, or heels.

These jeans are made to show off your ankles and feet, so don’t wear boyfriend jeans with boots or sneakers. Instead, wear ‘em with a pair of gladiator sandals, flip flops, high heels, or ballet flats to add cute details.

Keep the rest of your look relaxed and casual.

Boyfriend jeans look best with a plain tee or tank and minimal accessories. It’s a look that’s very low maintenance and informal, so don’t try too hard with your top and accessories.

With a leather belt.

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. Bonus points if you wear a plain leather belt that looks like it could have been borrowed from a boy too.

Now Go Out and Wear Them!

Just remember, when you put together an outfit with boyfriend jeans at the focus, keep it simple. Because the jeans themselves are going to be baggy, you do want to achieve some balance with tighter tops, dainty shoes, and feminine jewelry, but don't go overboard. Just a piece here and there and you'll be looking good!
