Boyfriend jeans. That is a statement that most people shy away from. I know I have in the past. I thought, “They look great on other people, but I could never pull them off myself.”
Last week, I bit the bullet and scored a pair of boyfriend jeans on sale that didn’t overwhelm my figure. Since they were inexpensive, I thought it wasn’t a big risk to at least bring them home and see if I could style them.
The aftermath is, I can’t get enough of them and I definitely won’t be returning them! They are a great alternative on days when you aren’t feeling skinnies.
If you are looking into trying the boyfriend/mom jean trend out, there are a few tips you should follow to achieve a chic and stylish look.
First, make sure the pants relatively fit your waist. Since the jeans are going to be looser, it is okay if the waist is slightly loose as well, just throw on a skinny belt to secure them. But if the jeans do not stay up without a belt, you should probably keep searching.
Second, if you are not sure that you will wear your purchase, follow in my lead and try to find a pair on sale or at a thrift store first.
Third, tapper them. Tapper the loose fitted jeans by rolling up the bottoms a bit. This is a key point. It will give your look more shape and show a touch of skin to make up for the more masculine style.
I hope this helps some of you and even inspires you to try it out for yourself! Never believe that you can’t wear something. If you want to wear it, wear it!
