Dressing like a boy has never been more “in.” No, I’m not talking about the one to two year phase as kids where we wore camouflage and played with bugs to show the boys we’re “just like them.” From collared shirt dresses and to my newest fall must-have, boyfriend jeans, we’re taking fashion tips from the boys (or just stealing their style). As trend setters steer away from skinny jeans, we’re opened to a plethora of options when it comes to the boyfriend jean. Runway to street style, the trend is unavoidable. Whether dressed up or dressed down, this oversized distressed denim look is sure to fit into your closet no matter what your personal style is.
Using my sister as a muse (hey Paige) I incorporated the jean into her everyday style, showing how versatile they are. Going for a boho look, we kept the pieces simple which let off an easy going exterior. Cuffing the jeans at the bottom, she shows a little ankle which emphasizes her shoe choice. Next, a simple gray T-shirt was the perfect asset to this outfit since it doesn’t distract from the two other pieces. With the thought that too much jewelry would be overwhelming, her favorite Alex and Ani bracelets did the job as a subtle addition. Lastly, her floral kimono gives a pop of liveliness to the outfit by giving it a fun and flirty twist when paired with the rugged denim.
Boyfriend jeans can be transformed from season to season. From tough denim to a softer chambray, the options are endless. No need to smuggle your boyfriend’s dress shirt when he’s not looking or his favorite pair of jeans that you think he might not miss. Boyfriend jeans are the perfect addition to any closet. With so many styles, colors and fits to choose from you’re bound to find a pair (or seven) that are the perfect match.
Play around with your first pair of boyfriend jeans. Before buying every style and fit, work around one. Play with dressing it up with wedges and a blouse, then a simple tank top and Birkenstocks. These jeans will take you occasion to occasion giving an effortless look that is just as comfortable as it’s perceived!
Just a tidbit of fall essential styling, as told by Celia.
