The Boyfriend Jeans

Boyfriend jeans is an american trend, known since the 50's of the last century. Nowadays this style is worshipped  by fashionistas from all over the world. The name comes from girls stealing or borrowing their boyfriends jeans.
The lovely thing about this is the diversity of items you can combine them with: for a relaxed look you can wear them with some loafers or tennis shoes, for a casual chic mood you can pull them out with a pair of stilettos and a blouse; and the multitude of occasions: for club, chill day in the park or even for work, unless your job doesn't require a strict dress code or an uniform.
The jeans I wear below I did not steel from my boyfriend but from my sister, I wish I could have kept them but she was very clear about not even thinking to give them up, too bad for me as I don't look at them just as another outfit it is my style it is the way I feel good wearing on a daily basis. And when I say that I remember of a friend of mine who was always telling me 'Fashion is a state of mind', whether is a Chanel black dress or some boyfriend jeans it is what you feel good in that you should wear.
And before proceeding to the pics, I found some tips on how to come up with the perfect boyfriend jeans look:                                            (source:

    First and foremost, the fit should be delightfully loose, just grazing your thigh. Proportion is very important, so make sure it fits your hips loosely (and wear a great leather belt). Avoid at all costs the bloomer or diaper butt.
•    Secondly, when pegging or cuffing the leg, pull tight at the hem and use the guideline of a one- to two-inch cuff. Roll this up until it hits mid-calf. If you are petite, this is going to emphasize your small frame. But this doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Just play up your size with peep-toe heels and a cute fitted blouse. If you’re tall, try a pair of flats.
•    Third, absolutely do not roll up the cuff or peg so tightly that your calf turns purple.
Now all you need is the right pair of jeans. If your boyfriend just won’t part with his, a few of our favorite designers include the iconic Levi’s and stylists-turned-designers Current/Elliott, well known in the industry for introducing reconstructed vintage denim to mega-celebs like Nicole Richie and Mandy Moore.
Meticulous attention to detail makes their re-constructed    vintage jeans something special, even historical. Plus, the denim     is super-worn-in by what they call a love wash. Check out their ultra-feminine pieces at
If shopping on the web makes your eyes twitch, there’s always Lucky Brand, which has been pumping out solid denim pieces for years.
And I am not letting you go without some inspirational boyfriend jeans looks at the end!
