Feminine Ways to Wear Boyfriend Jeans

Whether it’s pants, boyfriend blazers or three-piece suits, women enjoy borrowing masculine silhouettes. Nowadays, leather jacket and other pieces of clothing, that would be traditionally menswear, are influencing women’s fashion more and more. From Coco Chanel dressing in her boyfriend’s suits in the early 20th century to Yves Saint Laurent creating a line of dinner jackets with trousers for women in the 1960s.

Suits and pants are very much part of the norm in women’s wear, but one of the most common examples of borrowed fashion today (other than button-down shirts) is the boyfriend jean, according to Chelsea Bell, fashion media professor at the Southern Methodist University. With the impending demise of the skinny jean craze, cropped, distressed denim has never been so popular.

But while all the different styles of jeans that have been showcased on Lyst make us want to add to our wardrobe and try out new styles, what makes the boyfriend cut more attractive than the rest? Much like a biker jacket or moto boots, the gives a tomboyish vibe that may not fit everyone’s . Contrary to popular belief, there are more options with these pants beyond the androgynous look. Not only are these the most comfortable pair in your wardrobe, but they are also quite versatile in the way that they can be paired with the most feminine of tops.

So give your skinnies a rest, and try out some new combinations using your boyfriend jeans :

With a crop top and heels


The high waisted cut of the pants makes it a perfect excuse for a crop top. Tastefully show off some skin with a cropped tank and pair it with simple sandals. The midriff and heels are a nice contrast from the baggy bottoms that prevent the ensemble from appearing too sexy.

With the off-the-shoulder trend


The off-the-shoulder trend has been in high demand trend for the past several seasons and now a wardrobe staple; try wearing a delicate, off-the-shoulder top with your jeans, tucking the blouse in to highlight your curves and match the femininity of the “sleeves.” If the off-the-shoulder top is too annoying for you, any cold shoulder top should do the trick!

With a bowtie blouse


If you’re not a fan of tucking in shirts, a button-down with a bow is something you can definitely pull off! While both are menswear-inspired pieces, the little bow adds a flirty touch to the whole outfit.
