How To Make Boyfriend Jeans Work For YOUR Shape

We are still loving the “borrowed-from-the-boys” look when it comes to denims. There is no better way to highlight that with a pair of boyfriend style jeans.

What is a boyfriend jean: it is loose fitting, relaxed fit. Can have a dropped crotch and often slightly carrot tapered legs. Most of the time the jeans sits on your hips. This is especially great for creating curves if you have a super straight “ruler” type body. If you already have a curvy body, wear with lots of confidence. And if you are worried of being too short to pull off this look – pair it with heels.

If comfort is in fact the new cool, the boyfriend jean is the epitome of showing off that carefree attitude.

The latest most on trend surface interest are listed below; pick your favourite. Remember, the more worn in the better!

Go for a slimmer leg. If you are petite you’ll probably want to opt for this variation. All over destruction adds even more edge to and 80’s style acid wash finish.

A very loose and baggy fit and an almost classic style deconstruction that sticks predominantly to the knee is carefree cool at its best, to be worn up or down.

Paired down with a single patch. It is toned down, but still on trend. Create a bit more interest by turning up those cuffs.

GStar boyfriend jeans

G-star brings us a super playful alternative to wearing a handbag. Even better than a moonbag, this denim on denim designed pouch is attached so it won’t be going anywhere.

Add an instant rock and roll feel to bf jeans with star studded layering that peek out of from distressed patches.

Destroyed within an inch of its life denim looks have now become a very aspirational look. It is beautiful to contrast with a crisp button up shirt or settle in to the worn in look with a vintage statement Tee.

A dark indigo wash is perfect for a more dressed up version. A clean non distressed denim even in this fit is slightly more formal. The one to go for when heading into a non-casual environment like a work interview.
