STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Only Boyfriend You Need

Style Advice of the Week

Who remembers the Olson twins in It Takes Two? (Okay, let’s be honest. We all do!) Well, do you remember Amanda, the scrappy orphan who made it look cool to go to camp?  With her light wash overalls and waist tied flannel, she made us all want to be a tomboy. If you never got the chance to dress like her while you were a kid because your mom insisted on you wearing dresses, now’s your chance!

Within the last six months it is apparent that the trends of the ’90s have returned and everyone is loving it. From babydolls and beanies to chokers and cut-offs, people have begun to vintage dive to find their old favorites. One staple of the ’90s that has made a powerful return is the boyfriend jean. These super baggy and torn high-waisted pants give off a chill, easy-going vibe while still managing to make you look great.

This Fashionista pairs her rolled boyfriend jeans with a simple white tee, a much beloved flannel and some black Converse All-Stars.  She also accessorizes with a black chained bag and two lovely rings. The thumb ring is silver with an amazonite stone while the middle finger wears a ring made from a spoon. With a mix of grunge clothes and simple accessories this Fashionista makes a perfect outfit for an overcast day.

If you were looking to wear your comfortable boyfriend jeans for a night out try pairing them with black heels, your favorite graphic tee, a black vest and a large satchel. The contrast between the extremely casual pants and the dressy bag and heels makes for a very exciting outfit that will make people inspired.
