Today I am bringing you a new post in collaboration with Piperlime. You may have seen other blog posts and followed the #momentsofchic hashtag on Instagram (if you haven’t you totally should).
I was so excited to pair the Joe’s Boyfriend Slim Jeans with this white Schaefer Top by Rachel Zoe. I am absolutely in love with the stitching detailing of the top, that creates it’s own white on white pattern. And the jeans are seriously one of the stylish and most comfortable ones I’ve owned.
This semester I tool a Fashion Ethics and Consumption class, and there was a questionnaire in one of the lectures, and one of the questions was – Have you ever bought something that had rips and was distressed on purpose. Well, now I have. I personally think that this is the way to go with boyfriend jeans. You need that distressed look to make the jeans look yours, feminine and stylish.
I paired the jeans and the top with my hand-made crochet scarf (click for instructions here), as well as my favorite studied booties, Rebecca Minkoff 5 zip mini bag and a leaf locket necklace.
I thought there were no boyfriend jeans to fit my body without making me look ridiculous. Even though I have that slightly boyish figure. But these jeans made it so easy. So after wearing them non-stop for a week, and I will probably continue wearing them this week as well, here are
Some tips on wearing boyfriend jeans:
1. Choose a darker wash. It’s not that the dark is slimming, in my opinion it just looks better on most of us.
2. Choose distressed. Like I mentioned before rips, tears and frays are going to be your new favorite.
3. If you are like me (not too big of a butt), go a size up. I know that’s not something you normally hear. But that extra size adds on to the slouch and the lower hanging crotch that I like so much. (I can also take these jeans off without having to unbutton or unzip them 😉 )
4. Cuff or uncuff. That’s up to you, I like them cuffed with sneakers, booties, and slip ons, also sandals and flats. But I also think boyfriend jeans look extremely cool uncuffed with a pair of heels or platforms.
5. Oversize the top, maybe just a little. You know I am into the oversized trend, and I love when sweaters or tops are a bit big on me. So if you are not top heavy (34B over here), I say do it!
So check out my look, and all the pieces, and get ready for more style tips. DIY posts and our Christmas Tree story later this week!
