If you are reading this article, you probably take the way you look seriously and want to look good. You may be up on all the latest trends and ready to take the world by storm! But sometimes, there’s a trend that we just don’t get or know how to put together without looking a little silly.
This is especially true for boyfriend jeans, which have become quite popular over the last season or two. If you want to look your best – attractive and fun – boyfriend jeans are the way to go, but you have to do it right. Here’s how.
So What are They?
First of all, what are boyfriend jeans? Yes, they’re everywhere, but are they actually a pair of jeans you swipe from your boyfriend or husband’s drawer? The answer is simply no. Men’s jeans are cut differently than women’s so wearing your man’s jeans may make you look a little strange if they don’t fit properly. The jeans are meant to be baggy and rolled at the ankles while fitting you through the hips and thighs. Opt for the straight leg cut – do not use men’s boot cut or flared jeans for this look.
How to Wear Them
As mentioned, boyfriend jeans are meant to be rolled at the ankle. The cuff should rest just above the ankle, showing off your feminine foot. If you are on the smaller side, make sure that you even out the look by cuffing the jeans with a smaller roll. The look is meant to sit low on the hips, hence the “boyfriend jeans” angle, so it will work if you are curvy or straight.
What to Wear with Boyfriend Jeans
Boyfriend jeans are meant to be casual yet feminine. The point is not to look masculine. You will want to wear them with slim-fitting tops, girly shoes, and other feminine accessories. Ballet flats, detailed gladiators, and chunky high heels tend to work best with them.
You should avoid masculine pieces such as cotton flannel, button-down shirts, and ties. This could make you look like a guy. If you must incorporate other masculine pieces, make sure you wear high heels, throw on a couple of chunky bracelets, or cinch the waist with a belt.
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!
