Boyfriend jeans are back gal pals, or really, they never went out of style. With athleisure wear hitting the tops in fashion stakes (high heel sales have dropped dramatically over the last two years) us ladies are all about comfort at the moment, whether that means switching out heels for sneakers or skinny jeans for boyfriend jeans.
The style movement has changed its goal, with fashion now being super functional for the busy-bees that run from meeting to meeting all day long.
Boyfriend jeans are one of the most functional pieces in your closet. Jeans are an upgrade from sweats, but they are also loose fitting and comfortable to be worn all day while being versatile enough to transition to from the office to Happy Hour. Besides, we’ve all heard those horror stories from skinny jeans cutting off circulation – yuck!
When it comes to styling your boyfriend jeans, you can go for many different looks, such as embracing your inner tomboy, bringing out your chic or going extra casual.
The great thing about boyfriend jeans is that they can be styled with heels or sneakers, depending on your mood or shape. We love a pair of heels to dress up your jeans for work or date night, while sneakers provide comfortability for weekend brunch with the girls.
As the shape of boyfriend jeans is more relaxed than skinny jeans or tighter slacks, a blazer or buttoned shirt up top is a great way to add in that structure that you may feel the outfit is missing. Depending on your style, an oversized v-neck sweater is a great option to have to bring out your inner tomboy while a crop top or plain fitted tee with a leather jacket is a great option to show off your waist without getting lost in the relaxed feel.
