Boyfriend Jeans: Work & Weekend

Incorporating a bit of menswear flair into your wardrobe while maintaining your feminine style can be tricky, but it’s not impossible.

Boyfriend jeans are insanely comfortable and so easy to wear, but it’s essential to find your most flattering fit! While I do have a few pairs of very loose, tattered boyfriend jeans, they are reserved for the least stylish of occasions. (Moving day, for example.) When I want to sport a fashion-forward pair of boyfriend jeans for everyday wear, I like to wear a slimmer style to keep a polished appearance.

I found these slim-fit boyfriend jeans at Old Navy and I was absolutely smitten! Slightly distressed, a wear-with-everything wash, and that perfect loose-but-not-baggy fit. I’ll take two, please! (Especially at the $34 price point!)

When I’m styling boyfriend jeans, I’m all about the lengthy layers to elongate my look. For a workday outfit, I chose a long silk blouse, a hit-at-the-hip sweater, a pendant necklace, and heels to add some height. Casual Friday at it’s finest!

For weekend wear, I styled the same outfit with the cutest pair of striped slippers. Without having the added height from my leopard print heels, I wore my cross body bucket bag on the longest buckle to lengthen my look. Tricks of the trade!

    Both of these looks are so great. Gotta love denim for $34! I really like your suggestion to elongate your look with the longer bag to compensate for the flats. I will remember this tip!

    Slim-fit boyfriend jeans?! Yay! I’ve never owned a pair of boyfriend jeans – I think they look great on other people but the bagginess/lack of structure tends to just make my looks look big.

    LOVE the slim boy jeans from Madewell. They’re so much more flattering than the saggy butt ones.

    Love the shades! Old Navy always seems to have the best finds + have really stepped up their game lately. I have a few pairs of their skinny jeans but definitely need to invest in a good BF jean – these are perfect!

    Sadly for me, I still have yet to find the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans. The last pair I tried, they made my butt look saggy lol. I would rock mine with pointed toe pumps and a loose t shirt half tucked.
