How are you doing? Hope you had a lovely weekend 🙂
Today’s post is another one in the ‘How To’ series, about how to properly style boyfriend jeans! These jeans are super trendy, and have been so for the past couple of years.
Something very important to bear in mind when purchasing a pair of boyfriend jeans is that, though this style of jeans is made to look a bit big and worn, that does not mean that they shouldn’t fit you correctly. They should be loose around your legs, but not so baggy that your figure is lost in them!
They’re usually low-waisted, you can also buy a mid-to-high waisted version of these jeans. The kind of cut that is best for you depends on your body type.
♥ If you carry extra weight around your middle, then you should stick to mid- or high- waisted jeans to avoid getting a “muffin top” look.
♥ If your figure is relatively straight and you’re on the thin side, then low-waisted jeans can help give your body the appearance of more curves and definition.
As with all types of jeans, you can find boyfriend jeans in a variety of washes, from very light blue to very dark denim. Most often, a darker wash is dressier and a bit more formal than a lighter wash. Darker jeans are better for more formal events, and may suit older women a bit better as well.
♥ Darker jeans also call less attention to themselves and bring more attention to your upper body. But if you want to have fun with a light pair of jeans, that’s up to you 😉
Also, something very important: consider cuffing your jeans! You can cuff them so that they fall 3/4 down your calf, exposing your ankle and the area above it. The cuffed jeans make for a fun and exciting look, while also making you appear taller!
That being said, I leave you with some looks (from Pinterest) featuring this type of jeans, so you can draw some inspiration 😉
I love this style of jeans! Though it’s not the most flattering, I feel like it does suit me alright and I believe it just makes your outfit stand out.
