The definition of ‘boyfriend jeans’ is a loose fit, roomy in the hips and leg, as if you were borrowing them from your sweetie….this is my first pair and I am enjoying them, worn here on a recent Saturday…..what initially attracted me was the ripped/distressed style, but once I tried them on the fit sold me – it is a nice change from all the skinny jeans and also quite comfy…..because they are a loose fit (Peter calls them baggy) I prefer to wear them with a bit of a heel to avoid feeling schlumpy…..with these tan suede booties I don’t feel schlumpy at all!
On top is an open weave mock turtleneck found earlier this year at BCBG, the tote was a recent find at Crush, on Newbury Street….wearing a glitzy belt buckle adds a nice contrast to the distressed jeans, and keeping all the colors light was a refreshing change from black…..
This cropped shearling jacket is a treasure from TJMaxx, found several years ago….camel leather gloves from Sermoneta…..
A few tips when you wear boyfriend jeans:
– Keep your top fitted, nothing baggy or oversized.
– Do wear a cropped jacket or top; it shows off your waist and gives you shape.
– Avoid wearing a complete flat; a bit of a heel or a wedge is more flattering, especially if you are petite.
