Boyfriend jeans are more than baggy jeans someone stole out of a boyfriend's closet. They're designed to be comfortable and flattering on a number of body types. Tight skinny jeans are not the only jeans that enhance the female form; sometimes a loose fit made of quality material does just as much as a pair of flare jeans that highlights your hourglass curves.
The idea of a woman wearing men's clothes is not new. Coco Chanel famously used men's fashion to inspire her own wardrobe. Marilyn Monroe wore loose-fitting jeans during her career, and Diane Keaton's Annie Hall sported menswear and looked great in it.
Though the term "boyfriend jeans" insinuates that a woman stole her jeans from a man's closet, women have been wearing loose-fitting fashion inspired by menswear for decades. These jeans belong to women, and the style has moved far beyond the idea of a woman simply wearing men's clothing. Brands like 7 for All Mankind and Not Your Daughter's Jeans tailor boyfriend jeans to enhance the female form.
**Finding the Best Boyfriend Jeans
When wearing boyfriend jeans, go casual. These aren't jeans for clubbing or the office, except maybe on Casual Friday. Instead, boyfriend jeans are perfect weekend wear, whether you're hanging out at the park with friends or hitting up some craft beer bars.
Many women cuff boyfriend jeans to make them ankle-length. Consider wearing your favorite pair of Chuck Taylors for a classic casual look. You can dress up these comfy jeans with a casual pair of wedge ankle boots, too, the same way you'd pair boots with bootcut jeans. Some women pull off high heels; surprisingly, distressed boyfriend jeans look great with a pair of heels and a form-fitting shirt.
Pairing Tops With Your Boyfriend Jeans
Instead of pairing loose shirts and button-down tops with boyfriend jeans, try tanks and crop tops. Loose fabric on the bottom and the top can make you look a little too 90s grunge. Make things more modern by pairing a cold-shoulder long-sleeved top or a simple tight t-shirt with those ripped boyfriend jeans.
If you do want to wear a loose shirt, get creative with the hem. Many women like to tuck the front of a button-down into boyfriend jeans to emphasize the waistline. You can also tie the bottom of the shirt, just to where the last button comes together, to pull it tight around your waist without showing too much skin.
