Hey Beautiful People,
Welcome Back to my Blog, and for the ones tuning in for the first time. Hello am Kymmiee, a Tanzanian Street Style Blogger and Lifestyle You-tuber. Today I thought I will share with you my Fashionista Guide to Styling Up Boyfriend Jeans. Before I get further how about a quick definition for those who might struggle with the title… Boyfriend Jeans are supposed to look and feel like the jeans a woman might borrow (or steal if am a bit honest) from her boyfriend. They have a fairly relaxed fit, usually straight legs that may or may not be cuffed at the bottom, and they should look a bit big on the wearer.
Though it may look effortless, this types of jeans are a little tricky to style. I know because I have been there. You have to strike the right balance when styling them. You where an extra slouchy and you look homeless, too fitting ends up looking wrong and out of proportion. That is what the Fashionista Guide to Styling Up Boyfriend Jeans. Each style gives a different vibe. So before you pull out slush shop from the boyfriends closet know what you are going for in the back of the mind.
Fashionista Guide to Styling Up Boyfriend Jeans: Know the style your going for.
You must be thinking how many styles are there really? Short answer Plenty, a longer and more detail answer would include the following.When it comes to being super cute and 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 laid-back or all dressed up depending on the actual style your going for.You have the Girly Vibe, where you pair the boyfriend jean with some chic top, could be lacy or peplum and some heels to achieve this look.
Next you Have the Gypsy Twist where you pair a ripped boyfriend jeans with a spin on bohemian top and go about your day. Classy Vibe This is when you dress up a non-ragged boyfriend jeans and one could pair it up with a blazer and pass it as a work appropriate attire. The Model of Duty Look, Probably my favorite, it is achieved by pairing Ragged boyfriend jeans with a fitting crop top; done a lot by Bela Hadid and Kendal Jenner. Last you have the Airport Style Casual where its a tinny twist to the model off-duty look, where its achieved by adding up a third piece, It can be a bomber jacket, leather or a hoodie. I talked more about third pieces on my 10 wardrobe basic essentials post.
Fashionista Guide to Styling Up Boyfriend Jeans: Business On-top Party in The Bottom
The thing about Boyfriend jeans is that, more often than not, they seem pretty one-dimensional. No matter what you pair them with, the effect seems largely the same: a bit masculine, a bit undone, and very stylish. Which is great but, no matter how much we love them, they can start to become a bit (dare I say it)… boring? So how about giving them a tinny bit of sparkle and magic so that you give them extra wear huh! One word, genius! A great way to dress up a classic pair of boyfriend jeans is to wear a business-ready blazer on top; This is also a smart approach to wearing boyfriend jeans at the office—no one can say you’re being too casual if you’re wearing an ultra-sleek blazer.
Fashionista Guide to Styling Up Boyfriend Jeans: Go Vintage
I was shocked at this discovery. I have loved the Boyfriend Jeans trend for the longest time, my inner tomboy can testify.But if am being honest, the same designs pissed me the hell out (excuse my french) so I seemed to let them pass. However, I needed something with a unique vibe and feel. Something that I would make me memorable (hope it makes sense). Not until I thrifted this babies, was the feeling satisfied. And I got them for so less it’s insane. They had the perfect wash, the distress was unreal, to the fact people assume I did that to my jeans (I am capable believe me). But I love the stares I get when I where them (The awe and the eye rolls combined). Am I a fashion fanatic? have I given up on life? we will never know with this jeans.
Fashionista Guide to Styling Up Boyfriend Jeans: Go Vintage: Bright Accessories
If you have followed my blog religiously, then you know the word accessories all too often. I throw it around like confetti. No, but seriously, this is a game changer. A plot twist however try accessories with brighter accessories especially if you are going for the dressed up boyfriend jeans category. It makes so much difference. The boyfriend jeans alone says masculine which is just plain boring. But a pop of bright accessories says you are so game and you came to slay all the way through, if you know what I mean. So go for bright yellow, pinks, neon, green clutch or shoes or both. And if you find the need to stay on the neutral side, get a super statement shoe, like cages.
