There is no denying my love of a good boyfriend jean, and I'm pretty sure I've mentioned it before but I've been rocking the look since 7th grade when I stole my dad's perfectly worn-in Levi's and wore them to school on a weekly basis. Looking back, I realize I have a history of going a little quirky with my choices here and there. It's what makes personal style fun, putting your own stamp on things and not just wearing what you think you are supposed to wear. While boyfriend denim is certainly a trend now, there are so many different ways to wear them that they don't feel tired yet. Some argue they aren't particularly figure-flattering, but I think the whole point of them is to give off that slightly oversize disheveled look. Personally I love to dress in items that give a bit of wiggle room, if things get too tight or structured I feel uncomfortable. It really is all about balance, and again how you feel comfortable wearing things. Below I have collected a handful of ideas on how to style a pair of boyfriend denim, and if you can believe this is only the tip of the iceberg. I had to edit way down, and yet still feel like I am throwing a lot at you!
There certainly is a little bit for everyone here, and it really is as simple as mixing and matching what you like to come up with your perfect combo! Let's flush out the basic components below...
Start with the perfect pair of boyfriend denim, then...
1. Pair with a blazer
2. Wear a slouchy tee
3. Top it off with a long, feminine coat.
4. Under the blazer, or alone, wear a graphic or striped tee.
5. Pick your perfect pair of shoes:
Don't forget the fun finishing touches such as tousled hair or a big messy bun, some chic shades and the perfect swipe of lipstick! So tell me, which combo feels the most "you"? I really love a boyfriend denim paired with heels and a striped or slouchy tee, and some fun statement jewelry!
