Hi fashion babes,
Today I wanted to share two different looks I put together that sport boyfriend jeans. Sometimes I don’t feel like putting on tight yoga pants or tighter jeans, so I reach for my Gap boyfriend jeans (I admit I purchased them in clearance too).
The first look is a bit preppy meets relaxed, with my Banana Republic pinstripe button up. To dress the look down, I use the boyfriend jeans. Coupled with my oversized hippie ZeroUV sunglasses and a messy bun, I have a mix of preppy and casual.
I find that, unless I’m going to a interview or a highly dressed event, I don’t need to go full preppy with an outfit. I definitely don’t when I work! Boyfriend jeans are not meant to look perfectly sophisticated, but more like you’re trying less and you’re actually more comfortable. Effortless looks sometimes are the best!
The Banana Republic button up is actually a bit long if it’s not tucked into a skirt or tied, so I tied it in a knot in front to make it a little more fun.
For the shoes, I went with my favorite black booties from Cole Haan. They gave me a little lift in my posture, instantly making the boyfriend jeans less slouchy.
Now onto the second look (my personal favorite): boho meets boyfriend jeans.
The bralette in the photos is from a Free People pant set I’ve actually already posted. Sometimes I wear the bralette by itself because it’s a great color and it looks awesome with cardigans and flannels.
For the shoes on this look, I chose brown loafers. I got mine from Chinese Laundry a couple years back at Nordstrom Rack. If you don’t already shop for shoes at Nordstrom Rack, consider this incentive. The loafers give the look a bit more of a studious feel with a hipster edge. Very Seattle, I know.
The cardigan is from Athleta. It’s super soft and I like to drape it off my shoulders to make the look a little girly. And the cream goes great with the light wash jeans and the browns from the shoes and the bralette. I re-wore this exact outfit a couple days after this shoot, I was in love! And I was comfortable, best of both worlds.
Of course, I was in my natural habitat hanging around a coffee shop in my second look. Spoiler; I can’t wait to share my favorite Seattle Coffee shops!
I hope you all enjoyed these two ways to wear boyfriend jeans.
