This season it’s all about stealing your man’s jeans—well, not literally! It’s all about the sporty, relaxed vibe of boyfriend style jeans.
Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you know that sporty-chic is the current mood of the fashion runways. From sheer paneling and pop culture slogans, to structured leather shorts and flatform shoes, designers from all over the globe have showcased garments that exude a laid-back, minimalist feel.
Kate Moss’ iconic denim look à la Calvin Klein perfectly embodies this ’90s trend. And voila, it was during this fashion moment that the boyfriend jean was born!
As well all know, everything in fashion tends to make a comeback. Boyfriend jeans are no exception. They had their fashion resurrection on this season’s catwalk. Although denim isn’t always seen on the runway, Rachel Zoe, Diesel, and Alice and Olivia showcased their favorite blue staples in their 2014 shows. And guess what? They were boyfriend styles! And an extra style hint for you: the more rips the better!
How To Wear Them
Baggy boyfriend jeans seem like an unflattering silhouette at first. But rejoice: it’s actually the opposite! Boyfriend jeans are versatile and they can be dressed up or down, which means you can rock a ton of different looks. Here’s some ideas for how to wear your boyfriend jeans:
Go for laid-back glam by teaming your denim with a crisp white shirt and an over-sized blazer.
Take inspiration from ‘Saved By The Bell’ and add a sporty tee that screams school spirit. Extra points for tucking it half in!
Complement over-sized jeans with a peplum top and show off that waist line! Add heels and a statement necklace for a cute outfit that’s perfect for lunch with the girls.
Feeling brave? Bare all in a crop top and go for an uber ’90s vibe!
Denim on denim always looks good! If you want to break up the look, wear a statement full-length coat in a fun, eye-catching print like leopard.
Go biker chic like Miss Moss and finish your look off with a leather jacket and cowboy boots. After all, she is queen of the ’90s jean!
