For those of you that have read my previous post, you will know that there will no longer be actual photos of the outfit pieces posted. I will try my best to post photos from online that closely resemble those I have purchased.
The skinny boyfriend jean. An outstanding marriage between relaxed and comfortable, and sexy and flattering. These jeans provide a great contrast with the feminine look of vintage inspired clothing. The cuffed hem also provides a great frame for heels and booties, like the lace ups in my first post. These jeans are a must for fall! They can be dressed up with a nice shirt and some heels or played down for more casual occasions with a simple tee and some strappy sandals. Play with different denim washes to change the vibe of an outfit.
[[make sure to get this look right]]
TIP ONE – Use Celebrities as Inspiration. Flip through magazines, YouTube videos, and celebrity blogs to see that this trend is really catching on all over the place. All you have to do is find the celebrity that matches your personal style, and match your pairings with the kinds of pairings that you see with celebrities. Use similar accessories and matching to create unique but similar outfits that coincide with today’s trends.
TIP TWO – Use Balance. Boyfriend jeans are intentionally slouchy and roomy, and this makes for a very comfortable wear. If you are not used to this however, you want to watch your balance when matching your co-ordinates. You don’t want your whole look to be slouchy and roomy, so pair with fitted tops and snug tees that match your body type. One top you want to avoid with the boyfriend is anything with an empire waist as this will definitely add some instant weight to your overall look.
TIP THREE – There is Magic in the Roll. If you don’t roll your cuffs well, you’ll look like one of those fashionistas that tries too hard, and honey, you don’t want that. Your cuff needs to reach right above the ankle, and you can make this either dressy or casual. If you want to look a little more slouchy and casual, you want to roll at least three times, and if you want a dressier look, never more than once.
TIP FOUR – Any Shoe Goes. So yes girls, you may be manning up your look with the boyfriend jean, but you can girl it down with a saucy pair of heels. So break out the spikes and show off those gorgeous ankles of yours. And if you don’t want to go with heels, no worries. Ballet flats, sandals, sneakers, anything goes here. There isn’t any shoe that will pair poorly with these jeans.
