Boyfriend's back? Yes, and better than ever.
I happen to really love the boyfriend jean look, though my fiance will disagree. He calls them the "no butt" jeans. Ha. But after a little explaining...a flash of some midriff and a little dab of cleavage, even he was intrigued. Some days just call for a looser pant. And if done right, this look is CHIC CHIC CHIC.
Think a look more Jen Aniston... than Katie Holmes. Sorry Mrs. Cruise.
To pull off this look (without being mistaken for a man) stick to the three golden rules:
1. Cuff the pant leg at the ankle. It's undeniable - a woman's ankle and foot are sexy. Because this style is meant to sit low on the hips, it works on both curvy and straight bodies. If you are petite or have a short waist, even out proportions by cuffing jeans with a smaller roll.
2. Consider what you are going to pair with your boyfriend jeans. In order to maintain a look that is feminine, it’s best to stick with slim-fitting tops and girly footwear. (ie - a good push-up bra and some wedges).
3. If you do decide to wear a pair of men’s jeans, make sure they fit! Find a pair that fit you through the waist and hips, and do opt for a straight leg. Men’s boot cut and flared denim don’t work quite as well for this cuffed denim trend. But there’s no need to cross-dress or borrow your honey’s denim (though if it works why not?) these jeans are available virtually everywhere.
Here's how I did it:
jeans: banana republic
belt: (very old school perhaps vintage at this point) a&f
wedges: Cynthia Vincent "Luella"
So what do you think? Would you wear this jean style? If so how would you style it?!
I also must pay some homage to my off and on again lady - Megan Fox - who I love the boyfriend look on the best. I always give credit where it is due. Props.
