What would be considered by some as “man-repellant”, the boyfriend jean has taken the blogosphere, street style scene, and Spring runways by storm. Diesel Black & Gold, Alexander Wang, D&G, Theyskens Theory, and Ralph Lauren all sent models parading down the runway in denim pants looked like they were thrown on as an afterthought the morning after a co-ed sleepover. Oversized, baggy, and usually embellished with distressed details, the boyfriend jean is perfect for that effortless chicness that every fashionista lusts after and adds an interesting menswear element to what would otherwise be a simple jeans and tee combo.
Our bloggers today know the secret to pulling off this somewhat intimidating trend: it’s all about the cuff! Sarah of Rosenbklyn balances the toughness of her denim with a floral and flowy kimono top and adds an element of street with a red beanie. A classic pointy-toed pump in a bright hue adds a femme and flirty touch to a classic blazer and boyfriend jean on Gabrielle of Look Sharp Sconnie. Lauren of the Marcy Stop adds some glamour to her rugged jeans with strappy metallic sandals and a citrus-colored chiffon top. A muted color palette and simple white top allows Elle of ElleFrost’s subtle tribal-print boyfriend jeans to do all the talking. Hallie of the Hallie Daily puts a retro twist on her boyfriend jeans with a classic red lip and head scarf. What’s your philosophy on boyfriend jeans? The bigger the better or easy does it?
