If you are reading this thinking I’m now “Tanya Tinder”, sorry to disappoint you!! Maybe my title was misleading…haha
Recently a few followers contacted me about boyfriend jeans and what are best ones out there. To be honest, I had them on my ‘wish-list’ so I didn’t mind the challenge to look around the shops.
There are loads of variations; stone-washed, low slung, ripped and even ones with really high waists called ‘mom’ jeans! (think American tourist in their 70’s …that’s what they look like) Sorry if I’m offending my American blog followers…yes, I do have some Americans following me and thank you…I am global haha!
So these were the looks I was trying to emulate on my search.
Boyfriend jeans are supposed to be a relaxed fit with a slightly tapered leg, most of which are rolled up at the bottom. As you can see they look really good dressed up with a high heel, or dressed down with trainers (you know by now it’s always the heels option for me)
I’m gonna be honest it was hard to find a nice pair. Being 5 foot nothing doesn’t help! The rolled up leg which is supposed to stop mid-shin was mostly grazing my ankle…so a few extra rolls were required. It was difficult to find a slouchy pair too. Also, alot of them have large rips on them and that’s not always good look for us “milk bottle legged” ladies – a bit of Sally Hansen under said rips is a requirement, but when the jeans come off I can’t tell how ridiculous you will look with patches of tan on your legs. Of course you could choose not to be lazy like me and tan your full legs, but sometimes that’s just waaaay too much effort. Also, I wouldn’t be spending a fortune on this style of jean as it’s just a trend at the moment and there will be a new jean trend just around the corner…here’s my favourite pairs from Topshop, Levis (they have so many options – check them out here) and of course the Penneys ones featured on my snap-chat yesterday which were a winner for me!
If all fails, rob the boyfriend’s/brother’s or husband’s jeans and see if you can pull the look together! With a 6′ 3″ husband I think I’ll be sticking to the shop bought rather than the borrowed kind!
Enjoy the rest of your evening – Grey’s Anatomy is back at 10pm on Sky Living after it’s mid season break…woohoo. I’m so sick of those election debates! Oh and there will be plenty of fashion too at The Brits tonight…can’t say we saw much of that on the election debates either!!
