This summer I purchased a pair of 7 For All Mankind Josefina Skinny Boyfriend Jeans on sale. The big, slouchy, comfortable-looking rolled jeans intrigued me, but I had no idea if I’d ever wear them. Well, I did, and I do, CONSTANTLY. In fact I like my boyfriend jeans so much a new pair is on my “to buy” list, maybe in a darker wash. The best thing about these jeans are their versatility. Boyfriend jeans are naturally casual, but they can be dressed up too. In these photos I’m wearing my slouchy jeans with my favorite Gap black t-shirt and a pair of Sketchers flats. If you were to stop by my house on an average weekday this is how I would probably look. It’s my everyday uniform. Even though I wear the jeans in a casual way during the day, I love dressing them up with pumps and a pretty blouse like I did in this post. Honestly, my take on the boyfriend jeans trend is pretty basic, but there are lots and lots of way to wear them. I’ve found ten of my favorite looks from around the web and listed them below for your viewing pleasure. See anything you like?

What do I reach for when the weather is cool and breezy? A scarf, jacket and jeans keep me just warm enough. In this post I’m wearing a black leather biker jacket with a ruffled leopard print scarf, bright blue denim shirt and black jeans. They’re all new to my blog and my body, but not my wardrobe.

I bought these red jeans last year knowing very well that they were just a fad but I didn’t care. I wanted to be trendy. I knew they’d be the hight of cool for a little while, and then would drop into the “out” category as some other hot item took their place. I’m grateful that I wasn’t completely correct. The red denim trend has simply evolved. Turquoise, pink and neon denim had a moment of fame, and now colored corduroy and printed jeans are enjoying their day in the sun. Even though red isn’t the hot color anymore I still love my cranberry colored jeans. I wore them with a black knit blouse last fall, with red during the holiday season, and with an oversized madras shirt this summer. I wanted to wear them a bit differently this fall, and I was hoping I could combine them with another trend to refresh the look. Continue Reading →
Jeans are the ultimate American uniform and denim in all it’s forms is a perennial fashion “do”. Jeans have been hot for a few years now, with no sign of the trend stopping any time soon. I like denim so much I’ve made a Pinterest board just for things made with this utilitarian fabric. Did you know the fabric doesn’t show the dirt because of the diagonal weave? Chambray, its lightweight plain weave cousin, is best in dresses and shirts, but most people still refer to any fabric in the indigo blue dye range as denim. Fine by me. I’m fond of classic blue, printed, acid washed, distressed and colored versions whether they’re the real thing or not. Here are some of my favorite looks and articles on the subject from around the web. Continue Reading →
Printed jeans - just the idea seems kind of silly, like some tacky 1980′s trend come back to haunt us. Oh wait, trousers with big floral prints WERE fashionable in the 1980′s. I think I might have blocked that out right along with shoulder pads and really big hair, two other looks that are currently moving back into style.
But the new print jeans seem more elegant than the old ones. First of all jeans fit so much better now that Spandex is woven together with the cotton fibers to create the new, stretchy denim. I remember a time when jeans as tight as the one’s I’m wearing in these photos had to be pulled on with the aid of a pair of pliers. Somewhere, in fact, I have a photo of a teenage me lying down flat on the floor in the hopes of getting a new pair of acid wash Guess jeans to zip. To say they were uncomfortable was putting it mildly, but I didn’t care. I was a teenager and it was The Look. Continue Reading →
