How to Wear Boyfriend Jeans

Hi All! Cara, our fabulous fashionista, is here with us today to share a few ideas on wearing boyfriend jeans.

Tips for Wearing Boyfriend Jeans #fashiontips #style


Ahhhh Boyfriend… It is a word we have heard from the time we could walk. It is a word that a parent, aunt, uncle, friend or even your grandma is excited to talk about with you (embarrassing you at times.)

I remember when my first daughter was 2, she had a friend who was a boy, and oh dear you can’t imagine all the pre-wedding plans we had others planning for the two of them. I must say it was quite cute, yet imagining my daughter marrying anytime soon made tears well up in my eyes (tissues please!)

This Boyfriend notion is always, and will always be around. I mean even jeans have caught on to the whole idea!

Remember borrowing your boyfriends t-shirt? Maybe sweats because they were comfy? Boyfriend jeans are in this season and I must say they are cute, sexy, and comfy. I think that is quite the combination, don’t you?

How To: Wear Boyfriend Jeans #fashiontips #style

I love the different styles of Boyfriend jeans, the color spectrum and the endless options on how to wear them. I love feeling young again, like I am in GREASE  borrowing my boyfriend’s letter jacket! (Yet they are jeans.)

With Boyfriend jeans you can pair them up easily with any kind of shoe. You can wear them with a simple pointed toe high heel shoe, sandals, converse, or a wedge shoe.

Boyfriend jeans can go from a simple daytime to a night time outfit, with just a change of a shoe. How simple is that? Wahoo!

You can also pair Boyfriend jeans with any kind of shirt: long sleeve, sleeveless, a simple v-neck shirt, or even a spaghetti strap blousy tank top.

To show a waist line you can add a belt and tuck a little bit of the front of the shirt in. Or leave the belt off and still tuck the front of the shirt in.

Boyfriend Jeans have no season, and that is the beauty of them. So as summer creeps up on us, grab a pair and match them however you like. You can’t go wrong with wearing a pair of Boyfriend jeans!

XOXO, Cara

    Major love for boyfriend jeans!!! Loved them in the 80’s and love them now! You all look great. I like how verstile they can be and how complimentary they are for any body type. In fact, I’m wearing mine today for “Casual Friday” with dressed up flip flops and will be changing into heels for happy hour!

    Cara…As you know, I was previously a Merchandising, Visual, and Design Retail Manager for years. Throughout those years at Anthropologie or The Gap Boyfriend Jeans were always a “Staple”. Can I say, “Boyfriend Jeans are the New Black!” They are becoming timeless as well. They are past the point where you think they are only going to be a trend, so jump on the Band Wagon & get a pair! You are right on that Boyfriend Jeans can be so diverse depending on the occasion or even your own individual style. What other item in your closet can be so versitile?….They really do belong in every women’s closet the whole year around, no matter where you live as well. Every type of women can pull them off too! No matter what size, shape, height, or style you are…they truly look amazing on anyone. You don’t have to be a fashionista to shop for Boyfriend Jeans either, just keep it simple and true to your individual style. If you tend to be more preppy &/or traditional with your style…buy them in a dark denim that are more fitted with out distressed coloring and/or holes and pair them with a starched oxford and Tory Burch flats. If you are more bohemian, go with a light wash and a bit baggy with flip fops and just a basic tee or tank paired with your favorite jewelry to spice it up! What is also amazing is they are available at any women’s “Go To” store where they shop and at any budget! You can buy them at Target, Old Navy, Gap, The Buckle, Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, Anthropologie, Loft, White House Black Market, Sacks, Large Department Stores, J. Crew, American Eagle, etc. And Last but Not Least….Any Age can wear them!!!!!!!!!!! Your teenage daughter can wear them and it is also fashionably appropriate for the 40+ women to wear them as well! Thanks again Cara! P.S. When I wear them they kind of take me back to the fun memories of my first boyfriend as well!!
