Boyfriend <3 jeans…


 I have this habit of buying a new pair of jeans and wearing them until I know their time is over #RIP, but my boyfriend jeans are different for two reasons: 1. it’s the closest thing I have to a boyfriend… 2. It is probably the coolest thing since someone invented Nutella – my second love.

When asking my best friend what she thinks I should wear her answer will always be “anything with you’re boyfriend jean – when you wear it, it just does something for me” obviously in a non-I-want-to-rip-them-off-in-the-bedroom kind of way. So I would say yes I love my boyfriend jean and maybe I’m a world champion at styling them for myself (thank you pinterest). So that is why I decided to inspire you to get yourself a boyfriend asap.

1. It Goes with a croptop:

Take it from Rihanna or Kylie Jenner the boyfriend jean is perfect for the crop-top lovers too. If showing the entire midriff scares you (join my small club) then do it in a peek-a-boo kind of way.

2. Pair them with a t- shirt

If the crop top has gone over you’re head, try a simple look with a t-shirt. It can be fitted or oversized too. Be careful when doing the oversize on oversize look – you don’t want to look super size do you? Do a little tuck away in the front to prevent you from looking sloppy, pair it with a flat or a sexy heel.

3. Even try a fancy nancy look.

You can dress it up with a fancier shirt, heels, add a hat and a fabulous bag, then you take it from day to night. Sparkles, Boobtubes (fitted and a bit of attitude) loose shirt and hat- #amazeballs.

4. Did I mention add a blazer?

So yes we all know the male inspired look is on point, do you think blazer and boyfriend jean will be over kill?? NOT AT ALL – only if you remember fit is key. nr1. Do a fitted blazer, loose shirt and the boyfriend if you are blessed with a bit more of a curve. nr 2. If you are a skinny little thang (springkaan)  with no hips you can even do oversize on oversize.

5. Going to work but still so obsessed with the jeans -do it.

You can totally make this look more sophisticated with button up shirts, heels or flats, blazers (like previously mentioned) anything goes if it is styled correctly. Some Ideas:

6. Its cold, Its like  yoga pants, just add something warm.

So if you are like me and decided not to get a boyfriend for winter – don’t fear the boyfriend jean is like having one without the hassle or drama of it. Oversized is perfect for winter for a comfy, laid-back I-just-threw-this-on-and-still-look-fabulous look. Or add a hat – I am truly deeply and madly obsessed with hats this year I even hear myself explaining to the ladies in the store I have a hat head – so it  just has to happen for me. Bad hair days – what kind? anyway hats will be a post for another day.

7. It goes with any shoe:

Whether you are a sandal girl on a cold summer nights, need a high heel to feel super sexy or want to do a boot for winter. The boyfriend jean is unlike any boyfriend- it can compromise to suit you’re needs. Don’t believe me well I call this proof:

7.1 with flats

So in my opinion the boyfriend jean is a must for any girl, luckily they are all over the show so head on down to any store to find the perfect one for you. I found my boyfriend at Foschini News jeans @R450.00.

Let me introduce you to my boyfriend also known as my uniform or go-to look.
