STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Better Than Your Boyfriend's Jeans

July 24th, 2015 at 2:10am

Ripped jeans have officially made a comeback just in time for summer. In this latest style revival, your must-have pair is a pair of slouchy boyfriend jeans. The boyfriend jean is not a new trend, but the way they are being styled fits this year’s turn towards minimal and sleek. The ripped jean is now becoming a part of classic and clean looks, despite having upset mothers everywhere for years.

Styling jeans in the summer is not something that happens often, but ripped boyfriend jeans are breezy enough for even the hottest summer days. This style is fun and easy to wear any day of the week on campus, to go shopping or on coffee dates. The rips on the jeans are eye-catching and add an interesting detail to any casual daytime look, especially if you are also following the minimalism trend with your other pieces.

Getting ready for your sunny day in the city? Take some advice from this Fashionista on how to style an outfit based around boyfriend jeans. Her choice of a lighter wash jean is a perfect match for summer weather; it makes the outfit look less heavy and season appropriate. A solid and neutral crop top is always a good wardrobe staple and looks perfect with boyfriend jeans. The matching boxy shapes compliment each other and the slight midriff adds that bit of summer fun. This Fashionista’s white Keds sneakers are the perfect mixture of minimal and playful for this outfit that is exactly that!

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “The jeans I’m wearing are not actually boyfriend style jeans. To get a more comfortable and low-rise look, I purchased a pair of ripped skinny jeans in a larger size than my usual wear and cuffed them twice to match this trend!”
