Meet the Boyfriend Jean: comfortable, functional, and though its namesake may warrant a shiver from your single status bones, this is one trend that will surely not have you single for much longer.
This trend has gained momentum over the past years, notably from street style blogs that have introduced us to the multifaceted nature of this new denim revolution. While you’re thinking these jeans may make you look like a farmhand, mechanic, or the aftermath of a tragic weight loss wardrobe, don’t be deterred from the possibilities this wardrobe staple may offer!
Utilize this trend during your day to day work life, by pairing with a comfortable flat and knitted sweater. Another option is wearing with a traditional oxford dress shirt and colorful sneakers.
For the warmer seasons and less casual events, feel free to throw these pants on with your favorite pair of strappy wedge sandals and printed bag that have been borrowed in the depths of your closet, awaiting their revival!
For a more dressed up appearance, pair this comfort centric pant with a bold bag, and coordinating shoe, as seen here on J.Crew maven and Creative Director, Jenna Lyons.
While the skinny jean counterpart to the boyfriend jean has staked its territorial importance in your wardrobe, take this boyfriend jean for a spin, I am sure you won’t be disappointed!
