Man Up: How to Rock the 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.
