STYLE GURU STYLE: Your Favorite Pair of Boyfriend Jeans

Another day and another morning of trying to decide what to wear. If you’re anything like me, skinny jeans have been your go-to pants for as long as you can remember. Dress them up or dress them down… they’re a classic and it is just that simple.

Let’s step out of our comfort zones, and try a new type of jean today—the boyfriend jean. It’s not a new idea, but it might soon be a new piece in your closet, if you didn’t snatch them up after they came off the runway a couple of years ago. Jeans are a staple, so it is worth exploring all of the other washes and cuts. With a relaxed fit like this, who could resist?

Although boyfriend jeans are the perfect match for a plain T-shirt and a lazy Sunday, I enjoy the chance to dress them up, and yes, it can be done. For this look, I paired my favorite red suede heels with my light wash boyfriend jeans. Because of the rugged look of this particular cut, any pair of heels with a pop of color or texture will give the same effect. To make my red heels the focus of my look, I went with a simple ribbed turtleneck for my top. Then, by adding an oversize scarf and statement necklace, I have quickly dressed up my favorite pair of boyfriend jeans for a day in the city. Don’t forget your statement purse! It just so happens that I was lucky enough to have one that pulled my entire outfit together. Never underestimate the power of accessories, a classic pair of shoes, and some denim.
