How to Style the Ultimate Pair of Boyfriend Jeans
If you only buy one pair of jeans this year, make them boyfriend jeans. They’re more comfortable than a lot of skinny jeans or jeggings and even though they’re loose, they’re still totally figure-flattering because of the way they taper at the bottom.
There is a trick to wearing them, though. All that loose, slouchy denim looks best with an equally loose and slouchy top, but you need to balance all that softness out with something sharp and structured like pointy-toe shoes, a crisp blazer, or a boxy bag.
These style tips will have you making boyfriend jeans your bitch in no time flat.
You Can Be a Tomboy
We can all agree that, at their core, boyfriend jeans are ultimately a masculine-inspired trend. After all, they’re literally named after the special man in your life! So why not take a unique approach to the trend and multiply the look’s masculinity to the nth degree? The recipe is simple: pair your boyfriend jeans with a set of on-trend sneakers and a letterman sweater for maximum impact.
Give them a model off-duty treatment.
The whole model-off-duty vibe never fails to appeal. On that note, pair your favorite boyfriend jeans with a low-heeled sandal and your comfiest T-shirt, and then toss a jacket across your shoulders. Everyone will probably think you’re a model just by association.
Share in the Military Trend
The other trend that’s very popular right now (and that’s equally as masculine-inspired): military gear. Top your boyfriend jeans with a military green jacket or vest—then feminize the look with a really great pair of high heels.

A great way to dress up a classic pair of boyfriend jeans is to wear a business-ready blazer on top. This is also a smart approach to wearing boyfriend jeans at the office—no one can say you’re being too casual if you’re wearing an ultra-sleek blazer.
