Boyfriend jeans – not the easiest type of denim to wear even though they claim to be!
Since I’m used to wearing a tight skinnier fit denim, I tend to feel a little frumpy when I wear a looser style. It’s important to find a pair of boyfriend jeans that still give you a shape. American Eagle Outfitters latest revamp of the boyfriend jean is called the “Tomgirl” — which has a skinnier fit. I also suggest playing with sizing. In a boyfriend jean I usually size down so they are not too baggy and overtime they will give you the right amount of slouch you want.
To feel more put together it’s all about adding the unexpected – a fun pair of heels! I scored these beauties at Zara a few summers back and love the bright bold turquoise. Turquoise is such a flattering shade on so many skin tones and the perfect pop of brightness to ease our way into summer.
I love a white crop top – especially this one from Aritzia. It fits a little oversized, but layered with a favorite lacy bralette from Aerie adds a just a bit of edge. Denim on denim has always been one of my favorite combinations. To continue with the “boyfriend” look – I actually borrowed from the boys and wore a men’s denim jacket from American Eagle Outfitters as well. Draped over my shoulders, I’m ready to hit the city for a fun summer night. Perhaps a rooftop?
Where will you wear your boyfriend jeans?
