How to Wear Boyfriend Jeans

how to wear boyfriend jeansSkinny jeans are perfect for that trim, tailored, polished look. But after seasons of skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans can be a great way to mix it up. And they don’t have to be so casual, either. I’m pretty much living in mine!

How to Wear Boyfriend Jeans

Wear ’em cuffed

For some reason, I have a hard time with full-length boyfriend jeans. They remind me too much of the ’90s, I think. Something about the cuff makes it more polished and refined. Try it!

Do distressed

It’s impossible NOT to feel at least a little edgy and cool with deconstructed denim. Perfect for the more casual look, too. Pair it with a v-neck tee and you’ve got an instant outfit.

Keep it feminine

Boyfriend style does not mean you actually want to dress like your boyfriend. Pair boyfriend jeans with feminine details, like a great pair of heels, piles of statement jewelry, or a lace top.

Play up contrast

One of my favorite tips for dressing like a million bucks is a little thing called BALANCE. The jeans are masculine? Add feminine {see above}. The jeans are baggy and loose? Add structure, like a great tailored blazer or tweed jacket.

Take Risks

Want to go even more fashion forward? Try pairing these slouchy jeans with combat boots or a crop top.

More Questions

What shoes work best?

For Fall, there are a ton of looks that pair nicely with boyfriend jeans. Try these babies on for size: heels, oxfords, ankle boots and ankle strap sandals.

What’s right for Fall?

I love the idea of oversized knit sweaters and bold chunky glam accessories for Fall. Check out my boyfriend jeans Pinterest board for more inspiration!

Love this look so much, you are bad ass. I have been wearing a cuff with my jeans a lot lately because of you. Love it.
