Slouchy Is The New Chic (Silhouette)
Yes, boyfriend jeans are meant to provide a more relaxed fit and lived-in look. That said, there’s a fine line between slouchy and ultra-baggy jeans that sag with every step. Ideally, your boyfriend jeans will provide a fit that’s relaxed through the hip and leg, and then tapers at the hem.
Stylist Tip: If you’re looking for something with a slimmer fit, give girlfriend jeans a try.
Raise Your Rise to Define Your Shape
The rise can really affect the slouchy factor. A higher rise will elongate your leg line while defining your backside and waist. With a mid to high rise option, you won’t feel like the rest of your body is swimming in the slouchy silhouette.
Fall in Love With Cuffed Hems
Remember, boyfriend jeans should taper at the bottom. Achieve this signature look with cuffed hems. You can try two nice and neat folds or a sloppy roll to achieve your desired length and fit. Hint: follow in the footsteps of other fashionistas with cuffed hems that hit near the ankle bone.
Pair Your Boyfriend Jeans With Everything
Now that you know how to find the perfect fit, find the perfect pairings. Balance your look by coupling your slouchy bottoms with structured tops. When heading out for a dressy bite with your real-life beau, top your look with a blazer. Lace up your kicks and rock a button-up for errands and easy Sunday mornings.
