If you are a boyfriend jean virgin and they terrify you when you go shopping, don’t worry I am here to help! Since boyfriend jeans are typically loose fitting, ripped and sit lower on your waist, it is important to understand how to wear them. You don’t want to look like you just rolled out of bed, so here are two of my favorite looks that are simple and easy to pull together. And of course a few extra tips to ease your shopping experience!
How to Wear Boyfriend Jeans
- Make sure they are not oversized. You don’t want to be swimming in them. And even though, rumor has it, Jincho’s are making a comeback, I would highly advise against it! Make sure they fit well around your waist and that the seat is not too saggy.
- The cuff on your jean is an important feature for this look. Here is a great tutorial on how to cuff your jeans properly: http://www.whowhatwear.com/how-to-cuff-your-jeans-like-a-pro/slide1
- When you are deciding what color wash to buy, remember that darker washes will look dressier and can also be more slimming. Lighter washes will come off more casual especially if they are ripped.
Polished Look: Structured on top and loose on the bottom is the key to great balance. Find a fabulous jacket/blazer and pair it with a soft loose fitting t-shirt. Tuck in your t-shirt just a bit in the front. Heels are a must if you want to dress up your look! Be daring and go for bold colors or fun prints for your accessories. This is great for a dinner outfit or for a fun night out with your friends!
Casual Look: When I want to go casual, I pair my jeans with a very soft slouchy sweater and a comfortable flat. This is a very easy look to accomplish. Your accessories can add more excitement to your outfit. This look is perfect to throw on when you need to run errands or pick up your kids from school.
