One would think that after wearing jeans all weekend, I’d be ready to wear a dress or skirt. Nope. More jeans. I’m a walking billboard for casual these days. 

So let’s talk boyfriend jeans, shall we? I was under the impression that boyfriend jeans are for everyone. You guys, as much as this pains me — I might be wrong. Now this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try them out. I happened to believe that they are a great closet staple. And I always think you should be open to try something out (and on) if you really like it. It might not be right the first go round, but you will find it. So for example these jeans I’m wearing; I sized up a size because I wanted them slouchy, giving them more of a casual look instead of tailored. The fit is actually a more fitted boyfriend and I wanted them to hit on my hips instead of my waist. So here I was telling everyone to do that this weekend. And guess what? That trick worked 1% of the time, every time. I don’t know what happened — I thought that if it worked on me, it worked on everyone? (sarcasm) In fact some people were sizing down because they wanted them to be more fitted. So after watching woman after woman and dressing them from boyfriend to skinnies, I came to one conclusion: no body type is the same and size doesn’t matter. (I’m saying this to me as well.) Focus on the fit, not the size. 

And on that note, don’t compare fits to different people. My jeans are going to fit me this way because of what my body looks like under this (a mystery you will never know). And your jeans will fit you that way because of your hot body. So in conclusion, boyfriends might work on your or not. Don’t ask me, I have no idea.

    I just bought a pair of boyfriends recently. I like how comfortable they are, but I’m not sure if they suit me. And don’t get me started on rolling the hems up. I just can’t figure them out! But I will keep trying!

    • Kendi Lea says:

      To be fair, rolling a cuff can be tricky. I like to just take cues from J.Crew, leaving it a little bit uneven and more rolled than folded. Keep on trying!

    After YEARS of searching (well, maybe not years, but it seemed like it) I finally found my perfect pair of bf jeans. I’m a trend obsessed fashion blogger and wardrobe stylist and HAD to have some or I wouldn’t sleep at night. Anyway, after much trying on, trial and error I finally found some that are just right for me at Gap (Old Navy’s sister). I sized up so they’d fit looser but with my most recent styling client we stayed true to size. You just have to do what’s right for your own body! Yours look fabulous!

  27. Ok, here’s the thing. I have a pair of boyfriend jeans from Target…bought them last summer and I love them. They are comfy, because my thighs are a little large. I also feel like they are properly worn in and soft. But, when I’ve posted them on WIWW, with heels even, and someone told me I should wear them because I’m too short. I’m 5’5′. I still wear them, but am I too for them? For real???

    I think they work for you because you’re tall. Do not take it for granted, woman! You are blessed by the height gods. Even a really skinny girl if she’s short will look like a frumpy troll in boyfriend style jeans. I’m speaking from experience. I did find that NY&Co’s slim slouch jeans were a better option for petite girls (aka me) – they have the same effect as boyfriend jeans but more flattering. (They’re here if anyone’s interested).

    I learned this lesson the hard way last weekend. I wanted soo badly to like boyfriend jeans, but I just don’t! I tried on a pairs in a few sizes from a couple of stores and was disappointed every.time. Finally dawned on me to try a straight cut jean with a little distressing, sized up, and BAM, my very own “boyfriend” fit.

  38. I agree…these don’t always work. Sometimes I like myself in them and sometimes I think, “worst choice *ever*”

    I love boyfriend jeans for my body. I’m tall and slender, but I also have the style where I am proud to rock them. My sister on the other hand would never be caught dead in boyfriend jeans. It so depends on body type, comfort level and style. If someone is not comfortable wearing them, then they are not for them! But LOFT and Gap seem to fit me best in the bf bottoms dept. Love the look and I’m sure I would have sized up to!

  91. Ok, here's the thing. I have a pair of boyfriend jeans from Target…bought them last summer and I love them. They are comfy, because my thighs are a little large. I also feel like they are properly worn in and soft. But, when I've posted them on WIWW, with heels even, and someone told me I should wear them because I'm too short. I'm 5'5'. I still wear them, but am I too for them? For real???

    I think they work for you because you're tall. Do not take it for granted, woman! You are blessed by the height gods. Even a really skinny girl if she's short will look like a frumpy troll in boyfriend style jeans. I'm speaking from experience. I did find that NY&Co's slim slouch jeans were a better option for petite girls (aka me) – they have the same effect as boyfriend jeans but more flattering. (They're here if anyone's interested).

  98. I love my boyfriend jeans, but you are right. Just like any pair of pants, the cut and fit make a difference for each person. To me boyfriend jeans are slouchy so I wear a pair that fit as such. But I could a more fitted pair for some people as well.

    I learned this lesson the hard way last weekend. I wanted soo badly to like boyfriend jeans, but I just don't! I tried on a pairs in a few sizes from a couple of stores and was disappointed every.time. Finally dawned on me to try a straight cut jean with a little distressing, sized up, and BAM, my very own "boyfriend" fit.

    Boyfriend jeans are amazing on those with a more straight figure… however… those with curves can usually look like not so awesome.. (obviously there are always exceptions…) my advice for those on the curvier side… opt for something that has a little more stretch in the fabric… it will forgive a lot more than your average loose fit boyfriend…. if your like me makes me look wider… to which I give a big fat “oh hell no”….

    I thought you have a pair of light color boyfriend jeans from NY&Co.. This Gap one looks very similar.
    BTW, I made a few collages of your daily outfits. You really like your dark rinse Gap boyfriend jeans. Then again, they are comfortable and fit your body and style very much.
    Also, your personal style and styling has improved. I looked at every single posting back 2 years. You got better and better. Also I like that now you chose simple background to show case the outfit. When the background is too busy (next to shrubs for example) the outfit gets lost.
    Also, the camera and photos have both improved BIG TIME! I really like the photos starting this year.
    Your poses and the angle of shots also enhance the outfits. You now really know how to dress for your body type. My body is kind of like yours that’s why I did the collages so that I can learn something from how you dress.
    XOXO and keep up the good work!
