What to Wear with Boyfriend Jeans

Boyfriend jeans are truly a girl's best friend.  They are super comfortable, cute and uber stylish.  This year the trend is to wear boyfriend jeans that are more complimentary to the feminine physique - after all, they aren't really your boyfriends jeans are they?  Look for a more tailored fit, a little loose but not baggy.  It is customary to role the pant cuffs up once or twice to create that "boyfriend" signature style.

When it comes to wearing boyfriend jeans opt for a sleek or slim fitting blouse, tank or t-shirt.  If you are going to wear a slightly loose top, such as a tunic make sure it falls just to your waist or hips.  Avoid longer fashion tops as they will create a frumpy look rather than a pulled together vibe.

Best tops to wear with boyfriend jeans include:

  • tank top or tee shirt with vest
  • blouse with tuxedo jacket
  • feminine blouse such as ruffled or bowtie
  • cashmere sweater
  • cotton cardigan
  • cropped jacket or blazer

What to Wear with Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans are another great denim style.  Their slim fit highlights feminine curve.  The latest trend in skinny jeans is dark wash denim, dark colored denim jeans and jeggings which are a uber stretchy jean.

When wearing skinny jeans make sure you wear something loose and flowing or long and fitted on top such as a tunic top, sweater dress, flirty un-tucked blouse or long cardigan.

Best ways to wear skinny jeans

  • wear long tops that fall just below the hips
  • wear sweater dresses that fall to mid thigh
  • wear riding boots, ankle boots or peep toe pumps
  • wear mid length jackets including blazers, tuxedo jackets and trench coats

What to Wear with Colorful Jeans

Best tops to wear with colored jeans:

  • striped shirts in neutral shades
  • neutral tops, blouses, tanks and tees look awesome - think gray, black, white, cream, silver etc.
  • if you are going to wear patterns make sure one of the colors matches the hue of the denim.  Paisley and floral patterned blouses take colorful jeans from casual to dressy.
