STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: I Could Be Your Boyfriend (Jeans)

What is casual enough to wear to class yet cool enough to wear out? I have your answer: boyfriend jeans. Boyfriend jeans add an element of coolness to any outfit and can take your outfit from ‘blah’ to ‘bomb.’ I know it may seem like an easy fix, but boyfriend jeans are less structured then their skinny jean counterparts. Boyfriend jeans also add a level of maturity and style to any outfit. Their ease is what makes them seem so effortless and cool yet their lack of structure makes them more comfortable to wear. They become even more flexible when you added in a ripped pair to the mix.

To heighten the coolness, choose a ripped pair to add an even more effortlessly cool edge to your look. If having them ripped all the way up the legs is too much for you, you can choose a pair with just one or two rips for a similar effect. Though in the winter, I would recommend pairing these jeans with a longer jacket so your legs don’t freeze.

This look stands out especially in the winter because of the exposed skin factor. To amp up the edginess of the look, I would pair my ripped jeans with a leather jacket and combat boots for an easy, don’t mess with me vibe.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “My favorite outfit is pairing my ripped jeans with a sweater or a scarf for the contrast between the softness of the sweater or scarf with the edginess of the denim and rips. Add booties for an instant glam going out outfit!”
