STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Best Kind of Boyfriend

Has anything ever really evolved as much as denim? It might as well be next in line to that of the entire planet. From skinny jeans to straight legs, to bootcuts, bell bottoms and those awful bedazzled back sides we are happy to leave in the past; denim has certainly seen a lot in its day. One of the newest trends seen lately is the boyfriend jean: a magical pair of unbelievably comfy, broken-in denim that requires no act of theft from any special man-friend in your life. Fit for a boyfriend, made for a girlfriend. The great thing about boyfriend jeans today is that we can buy them already perfectly worn and fitted just for us. They can be purchased at all your favorite stores and can be paired with all your favorite accessories.

So, how exactly do you take something originally designed for “boyfriends” and make it work for you? Simple! Check out this Fashionista’s twist on these masculine favorites! Boyfriend jeans tend to be a bit bigger and on the baggier side, so juxtaposing your outfit with more feminine pieces helps to create a more flattering look. This Fashionista impeccably pulls off multiple men’s fashion items without even having to do a double take. Wearing a men’s graphic T-shirt from H&M and a fitted men’s flannel from Aeropostale, you would never suspect the origin of these pieces! To off-set these menswear items, this Fashionista accessorizes her outfit with some pink mirrored sunglasses from Francesca’s along with a statement necklace from H&M. Lastly, her perfectly fitted boyfriend jeans are from American Eagle Outfitters with a lift from these adorable booties by Diba London.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “My style is very casual, and owning the right pieces can help create that staple look. I love wearing boyfriend T-shirts, just as much as I love boyfriend jeans. There’s something so great about pairing masculine pieces and making them more feminine or dressed up.”
