So, we wanted to share with you guys one of our favorite trends this Spring, boyfriend jeans! But a lot of you babes have been wondering, how do I wear these? I've always been a skinny jean girl, how do I make that transition to a looser fit? Boyfriend Jeans should be a staple piece in any wardrobe because they look great with literally. everything. Basic tees, chunky sweaters, girly blouses, sneakers, booties, heels.. told ya. Our Just Black 'Not Your Boyfriend's Jean' are the perfect introduction to the boyfriend jean, the slimmer cut and dark wash help to create a slimming effect as opposed to the light, looser cuts. Here are some easy ways to rock these jeans this season:
1. Laid Back Look (Puppy not included) - One way we love boyfriend jeans is with a loose fitted sweater like our Marseille Balloon Sleeve. You may think at first "no, I'll just look frumpy." We're here to tell you, you're wrong. The way to pull off a loose sweater with a boyfriend jean is to tuck in the front or side of the sweater and roll the cuff of the jeans.. Cuffed jeans help to elongate the legs and the tucked in sweater helps to frame the figure and draw the waist in. Off the shoulder also helps as seen on Layn! How cute is her little pup? Back story, him and his brothers are all adoptable pit bull mixes at Misplaced Mutts out of Newport, NC! We were able to spend all day with these little love bugs, and they are SO cute!
2. Off Duty - The roomy silhouette of boyfriend jeans pairs effortlessly with girly tops like our Marco Tie Top! Structured tops create a balance in your look like you deliberately wore loose fitting jeans, as opposed to throwing on pants that are slightly too big. Luckily, our jeans still have a tight fit around the waist and hips and are true to size to hug your curves before giving you a looser fit in the leg. A cropped tie t-shirt gives you the perfect off-duty weekend style paired with some sneakers and sunnies! Shop the look here.
3. All Trenched Up - Can you ever go wrong with a classic trench coat? In this case, definitely not. If you're looking for a simple, classic style to take you from day to night, pair a trendy top with your boyfriend jeans and add a structured trench to balance out your look. Don't forget to accessorize with a chunky sandal, hoop earrings and maybe a statement necklace to really dress up the look! Shop the look here.
4. Ultra Femme - Like we mentioned earlier, boyfriend jeans go with literally. everything! So even if you want to dress up your look, a buttoned down blouse and a simple heel can be oh so chic! The embroidery trend is still going strong, and adding a feminine detail paired with a boyfriend jean is the perfect way to style your Spring look! How cute is this for your Sunday brunch?!
