Denim Trend Spring 2009: The Boyfriend Jean  

This style of jean is one of my least faves. The name indicates looks like you threw on a pair of your boyfriend's jeans. I'm a petite girl, so I totally embraced the skinny jean and am deathly afraid to let it go. However, the style gods have spoken and they have decided that the loose fitting boyfriend jean is IN. So, let's make it work, ladies!

Here are some tips to fashionably wearing this jean without looking like a slouch:
* If you are going to create your own rather than buy (I'm leaning towards this
option), go to the thrift store. Or if you have a smaller boyfriend, just borrow
his...just make sure to wash them first! You know how guys do. A well-worn pair
will hang on your body better and look less boxy.
* To make the look more feminine, roll the bottom of the jeans up to expose a little
ankle, and wear w/a cute pair of sandals.
* If you decide to create a pair, rather than buy one, use a straight leg style
only! A skinny jean is going to look like a capri, and a bootcut or flare will look
pretty stupid since they flare out at the bottom.
* Balance the top part of your outfit with fitted pieces. They may be called
"BOYfriend jeans, but you're still a woman.

i don't know if i like them, but if posh spice is doing it, it must be fashionable


I never thought I would wear this but I bought one on a sale rack for $20 which is quite a deal in Trinidad. I rocked it twice casually. Not too bad for our hot weather.
