How to wear boyfriend jeans —the styling…
T-shirts + fitted blazers
I always stop to look at outfits that are styled with boyfriend jeans, a t-shirt and a fitted blazer. It looks so pulled together and effortlessly cool. There’s nothing complicated about it and yet it’s very polished… like you really care for yourself. I like that.
Fitted sweaters with peeking layers
Pairing this preppy top style with relaxed bottoms gives you instant style cred. Take a fitted sweater and layer it over a collared shirt or a silk camisole or anything else you own that is long enough to peek out under the bottom of your sweater.
Great big scarves
Scarves bring all the attention to your face and give a polished, finished feeling to an outfit. It gives the outfit your boyfriend jeans a feeling of purpose. You’ve designed this outfit rather than just throwing on your partners jeans.
