Do you have a pair of boyfriend jeans? I don’t, but I’m thinking about getting a pair. About a month ago I went in Madewell looking for a pair of olive skinny jeans that I had seen online. I was looking for buy a pair for my fall capsule wardrobe, like a pair featured my E-Book, The Essential Capsule Wardrobe: Fall 2016 Collection. While I was Madewell about to try on the olive jeans, I saw a pair of their Slim Boyfriend Jeans. Hmm, “slim”, not regular boyfriend jeans. The sales attendant said that was a slimmer version of boyfriend jeans and I may like them. I tried them on too, just to see how they fit.
In the past I have tried on regular boyfriend jeans. Since I have curvy hips, regular boyfriend jeans just don’t fit my hips. The few pair I have tried on were too loose in the waist, made my upper thighs look big and I just felt frumpy in them. BUT, Slim Boyfriend Jeans fit differently! I actually like them. The “slim” cut fits my body more. They actually feel like skinny jeans, but loose enough in the leg to have a relaxed look. Since I only went in Madewell for the olive jeans, it wasn’t in my budget to buy the slim boyfriend jeans at the time. I highly recommend slim boyfriend jeans!
This style of jeans inspired me to create these 4 outfit ideas:
You can wear the slim boyfriend jeans with a white button-up shirt, faux suede jacket, leopard clutch and ankle boots. When you wear this outfit shopping, out to lunch or on a date, you’ll look fabulous! See shopping sources below.
This outfit could be worn just about anywhere, whether to work or on the weekends. It features the slim boyfriend jeans, a black blazer, white tee, leopard scarf (I just bought this and it looks beautiful), and black loafers. See shopping sources below.
You know I’d have to fit a cardigan in with these outfit ideas! Taupe is one of the most versatile color of cardigans because it’s a neutral color. Wear it with the slim boyfriend jeans, burgundy gathered tee, taupe cardigan, taupe handbag and ankle boots for a polished casual look. See shopping sources below.
