Man Up: How to Rock the Boyfriend Jean

boyfriend_jean

Boy, oh, boy. First off, I’d like to send a thank you to all that have made this look possible: the little people, the big people, and all of its supporters. I told myself I wouldn’t cry, but…

Finally, a wining trend that doesn’t need to be accessorized with a gym membership. It’s the boyfriend jean: a relaxed fit jean that’s strong enough for your man, but made for a woman. It may send skinny denim lovers into shock, but despite what they may think, the boyfriend jean is one of the sexiest trends this season. It’s kind of like wearing his shirt; something about it just screams sass…as long as you wear it right! As with everything else in life and in your wardrobe, the look is all about balance. Offset your relaxed legs with a form fitting top with feminine lines and trims. Try pairing rolled-up boyfriend jeans with a slim fit tank, girly heels, a shoulder-bearing sweater, or if you’re as brave as Whitney (pictured above), an ounce of skin. Just make sure you get your own pair, dashing out the door with his sort of ruins the look’s sex appeal.

Easy, cheap and chic. Three words you don’t expect to be in any relation to a style that has become a warm weather staple. This basic piece can easily spruce up any look by adding a bright color or needed edge. Pocket tees and tanks quickly become the saving grace on the days you have nothing to wear! They can serve as a blank canvas to your outfit by being effortlessly dressed up with bold accessories, or just wear them alone for a simpler look.

Trend: Natural Waisted Styles

With everything taking the natural path lately, it’s no surprised that waistlines have started to catch on. Go with the flow with a natural waisted dress or top. It’s a perfect balance between a shapeless A-line that hides any curves, and a form fitting number that shows every bump. Natural waists accent your figure while still leaving something to the imagination. Since we’ve always thought that natural looks better, this is one trend that shouldn’t go to waist.

RVCA SHIVER TEE DRESS
ROXY FEATHER TANK
INSIGHT SUNDAE TWIST DRESS
