Boyfriend jeans are a popular style that are super easy to wear becoming a ‘must’ in many women’s wardrobe, and are set to give their Skinny sister a run for their money in the style stakes!
But as with other jeans, boyfriend jeans have different cuts, and we sometimes choose the wrong shape. Getting it wrong can make you look heavier on the hips whereas if you get the right cut this will definitely not be the case.
How to choose the best boyfriend jeans cut that flatter your figure?
- If you are on the shorter side, you may find it challenging to choose jeans cuffed on the bottom. You should keep in your mind that you need to reflect the image of a longer silhouette, hence, choose a slim, dark wash boyfriend jean that’s tapered toward the bottom. Try to skip the cuffing which may interrupt your legs and could make you look shorter, or wear it with open heeled sandals to elongate your legs.
- Baggy boyfriend jeans can emphasize larger legs. If you’ve got a fuller bottom half, shop for boyfriend jeans that fit well at the hips, and fall in a straight line from hips to hems. For a slenderizing effect, look for a pair with slim cuffs that hit your body just above the ankle, to show off the thinnest part of your legs. Dark wash jeans with a decent amount of stretch in the fabric are a slimming choice for you.
- If you have a rectangular body shape, you can pull off this style in all its relaxed glory. For you, we like a slouchy boyfriend jean with baggier thighs. If you want to create curves on a boyish body, choose a pair with whiskering or strategic rips around the hips and upper thighs. You can also wear
boyfriend jeans with lots of distressing and rips, that other body types find it a challenge to pull off, if that suits your style.
Boyfriend jeans are the key word for a relaxed look, on the go for every lady. Comfortable and effortless with the right styling you can pull off understated chic. Choose a fit that fit perfectly on the hips and waist with a wider black or brown belt to accessorize. To totally rock this look we suggest a top which fits fairly closely to the body yet not too tight. This will help to create a balance between the upper and lower body.
Whether you choose to dress them down with a simple t-shirt and flats, go boho with a loose cardigan or ramp it up with heels and a more structured jacket or blazer, boyfriend jeans are versatile as well as easy to wear. Our final top tip is to make sure that the jeans aren’t too baggy or you run the risk of making the outfit look slightly outdated and slouchy.
