Hello fellow fashion lovers! Whoever thought that since the advent of skinny jeans, that we’d all suddenly be wearing the baggy, distressed “boyfriend” variety!?! If you’d asked me five years ago if I’d wear baggy ripped jeans, I would shriek in horror and reply “NO!!!” and I’d tell you that skinnies were far more flattering anyway, so why go there…
However recently, the boyfriend style has had a huge make-over and they are no longer the baggy, unflattering “trackie pants made out of denim” that they used to be in the 90’s… They’re slimmer, distressed in all the right places and hide a multitude of sins (I.e. I haven’t shaved my legs all winter and I still look hot in these jeans…). They’re so comfortable and can be worn to suit any mood, whether it be on a casual Sunday or Saturday night drinks with the girls, they just work!
I found my perfect pair in the Madison Square Clothing “Breaking Bad” boyfriend’s, from the lovely Jessica at Saxon Boutique, they fit perfectly – they’re not too skinny and not too baggy, just riiiiiiight! Here are some of my top tips (and pics!) for choosing and styling your boyfriend jeans. Also, be sure to enter the Saxon Boutique Instagram comp to win a $500 wardrobe. Then you could style the “Breaking Bad” pair to your heart’s content! Check out @saxonboutique & facebook.com/saxonboutique for entry details and get re-gramming!
1. Try on as many pairs of boyfriend jeans as possible to find the style that best suits you – trust me, it’s worth the time and effort when you find your perfect pair!
2. Keep it Simple – Don’t over-do it, a simple tee, blazer and heels will make your boyfriend jeans the star of your look.
3. Wear them with heels! – If you’re wearing your boyfriend jeans cuffed at the ankle, wear high heels. This will elongate your silhouette and make you look taller.
