Boyfriend jeans may have started as a trend, but today the boyfriend is the go-to in many women’s wardrobes. Boyfriend jeans can be baggy or slim, cuffed or not. This jean style is typically fitted at the hips, with a more relaxed fit through the legs. Sure – they disappeared from our fashion vocabulary for a while with the rise of the skinny jean, but these power players have made a comeback and how! They’re definitely on our radar now.
You can style boyfriend jeans to create plenty of fashionable outfits, from ultra-casual day off looks, to dressier ensembles that work for date night.
Take a look at these stylish outfit ideas for what to wear with boyfriend jeans now.
1. With a Cute Sweater
Guys pull on jeans and a sweater and go, so why not you? Boyfriend jeans, and a sporty striped sweater make an easy, trendy weekend outfit. Add a dose of style while keeping things comfortable with metallic loafers and a colorful bucket bag.
2. With a Cropped Jacket
Here’s another look at how even vintage-inspired boyfriend jeans in a lighter wash can look appropriate for the office and beyond. Create an outfit you can wear to the office, and then out for after-five cocktails, with straight leg boyfriend jeans, a spaghetti-strap tank top, cropped tweed jacket, and pretty heels. Carry a large leather tote bag for office hours, then swap it out for a smaller clutch when you’re ready to hit the bar with friends.
4. With a Feminine Blouse
Mixing male and female fashion influences is a great recipe for a stylish outfit. Pair relaxed boyfriend jeans with a feminine floral blouse and high-heeled ankle boots for a pretty, easy look you can wear on special dates and dinners or out to brunch.
5. Double Denim
Double denim (aka wearing a denim top and bottoms) is a women’s fashion trend that keeps on going strong. For a cute, all-American outfit, pair slim-fitting, high waisted boyfriend jeans with a basic denim jacket and colorful red, white, and blue sweater. If you’re tall and slender, you can more easily get away with wearing the same wash on the top and bottom. Pick the denims keeping in mind your undertones and skin colours.
6. With a Blazer
Play with a stylish menswear look in full-length, boyfriend fit jeans topped with a turtleneck sweater and a menswear-inspired blazer. A leather cross body bag, a ladylike watch, and ankle boots are the perfect finishing touches.
7. With a Shirt
This easy, sexy look is a great reminder of why we started stealing jeans from our boyfriends in the first place. A crisp, white button-down shirt looks downright alluring when paired with slim boyfriend jeans, like the ultra-distressed, cuffed denim style pictured here. Add some accessory love, in the form of a fancy and feminine sling bag with statement shoes, for a cheeky girl-meets-boy outfit.
When it comes to being comfortable, no jean has your back quite like the boyfriend jean. Loose, cuffed, and infused with the perfect touch of masculinity—the look works whether you want to keep things ultra-laidback or all dressed up. Though it may appear effortless, it always looks ultra-stylish!
