3 Ways To Style Your Boyfriend Jeans

Before we dive into all the ways you can style these borrowed-from-the-boys blue jeans, let’s count the ways we love them.

  1. We love their loose fit: For days when we want to skip the skin-tight denim—boyfriend jeans are our go-to. Plus, it sends that off-duty casual vibe perfect for the weekend.
  2. We love them on all body shapes: Whether your hips are wide or narrow, or your legs are short or long, boyfriend jeans are universally flattering—trust us!
  3. We love them dressed up or down: Slip on a pair of heels to instantly add polish. Or, pair them with fashion sneakers for a take on athleisure.

If You’re New to Boyfriend Jeans

If you’re thinking about investing in a pair or just made it official with your first boyfriend (jean), prepare to fall in love. Their less-structured, lived-in feel make them the perfect accompaniment to your go-to cargo jacket, basic tee and peep-toe wedges to add some height.  

Stylist Tip: “I’m a curvy girl, so the most flattering fit for me is a higher rise with a more tapered hem at the ankle.”—Angela

Other ways to style your boyfriend jeans:

  • Pair them with a tee and blazer for casual Fridays.
  • Try them with a feminine, off-the-shoulder top for a GNO.
  • Throw on a classic trench coat to streamline your silhouette.

If You’ve Worn Boyfriend Jeans Once or Twice

The first-date jitters are gone but you’re in the “are we or aren’t we” stage. We say commit—they’re a total catch! Try your boyfriend jeans with an on-trend top—like a cold shoulder sweater. Then, dress up the look for evening with a pair of pumps. Off-duty for the weekend? Pair them with lace-up sneakers for a more casual vibe.

Other ways to style your boyfriend jeans:

  • Throw on pointed pumps or strappy sandals for date night.
  • Tie a shirt or lightweight jacket around your waist for street style vibes.
  • Pair them with a chambray shirt for a denim on denim look.

If You’re an Expert at Wearing Boyfriend Jeans

If you’re in a serious relationship, try mixing up your look by adding accessories. Style a menswear inspired look with your most distressed jeans ever (think: major deconstruction at the knees). Then, add a structured button-up, feminine pumps and a neckerchief. If you’re comfortable with your status at this point, don’t be afraid to think outside the box with your style.

Other Ways to Style Your Boyfriend Jeans:

  • Pair a chunky knit sweater and belt your boyfriend jeans for added definition.  
  • Try a mock neck sweater with ankle booties for a night out.
  • Roll the hem of your boyfriend jeans for a twist on a traditional cuff.
