Ah, the boyfriend jean... I'll admit, it took me some time to properly embrace the true glory of their fabulousness. When they first grew in popularity, I struggled to find a pair that looked cool but still flattered my figure. Once I found the right style, there was no turning back. They're perfect for a casual weekend of running errands but with the right accessories can certainly be amped up for dinner with the girls or a hot date.
Wondering how to style your boyfriend jeans? Here's my four step foolproof equation...
1. Find a pair of boyfriend jeans that work for your body type (the level of distressing is a matter of choice).
2. Pair them with a simple top. If your boyfriend jeans have exaggerated ripping and distressing, stick with a slouchy white tee or a grey sweatshirt. A crisp white button down will look great with almost any pair, especially when tucked in the front.
3. Top it with a cute coat! A retro varsity jacket will keep the look laid back while a tailor peacoat in classic navy or a great print will up the chic factor.
4. Complete the look with great accessories. Add a punch of colour to your otherwise neutral look with a red tote and don't forget a killer heel or bootie.
