How to wear boyfriend jeans?

Boyfriends, lovers, husbands, fathers of our children…They all hate our boyfriend jeans while we absolutely love them for their comfort and easy look. So how to style them so they finally get to like them?

First of all, avoid wearing bulky sweaters or jackets with boy friends jeans. As they are slouchy, you have to have a tight bust to balance the look. No boots nor sneakers either as you have to show your ankles. They will seam a lot thinner with rolled up pant cuffs. The whole idea is to make everything other than the jeans look slimmer. So here’s how you can style them.

With preppy accessories like here, I am wearing my J.Crew boyfriends, paired up with a striped Pull and Bear tee shirt, a Zara navy blazer, some Chanel classic pumps and a Mochila bag to add a little bit of funkiness.

You can also wear it with a silk blouse, a little cleavage is better. Zara blouse, my J.Crew boyfriends jeans, Gucci belt, Louboutin sandals and lace printed leather purse made by me.

Same J.Crew boyfriend jeans paired with a Maje tee shirt and biker jacket, Prada heels and sliver leather clutch also made by me.

Or a more casual version with ballerina flats, here my Repetto bolt bolchoï ones paired with a poppy red silk Maje blouse and my Mochila bag.

And you, how do you wear your boy friends?

J.Crew, home for the holidays

During its 30 years of business, J.Crew belonged to the very exclusive club of the block buster brands like Zara, Starbucks and Rolls Royce which never shot a TV commercial. Up till now…

This holiday ad has a little Tommy Hilfigeresque flair and, frankly, they could have done without the Mastercard collaboration which makes it very much commercial. Like Zara, J.Crew is my go to brand for every member of the family, including me and I absolutely love their tees and heels. I would have loved Jenna Lyons to come up with something as cheerful, it is the holidays after all but less business oriented. And since I don’t own a master card, I find it a little reductive. But hey, nice first try and keep some fun, joyful and artistic commercial coming. Skip the plastic…
