It is amazing how fashion trends come up. This boyfriend shirt and jeans trend supposedly emerged from the concept that when a woman spends and unplanned night at her boyfriend’s place she just might pull off wearing his shirt and jeans.
According to collegefashion.net, a boyfriend jean is either literally a pair of your guy’s jeans, or (not to leave the single ladies out) a pair of jeans that looks and fits like it was borrowed from a guy – loose fit, low rise, cuffed hems.
The boyfriend shirt is simply the “borrowed-from-your-boyfriend shirt.” It is a little oversized covering you up but still showing the right bits.
There are different ways to pull this look together and separately.
Wearing the Boyfriend Shirt
Dress it up: Most of these shirts are long and loose enough to be worn as a dress that offers comfort and super stylish. Throw on bold accessories and a belt to show your figure.
Layer it: For a casual look, wear unbuttoned boyfriend shirt with a sleeveless t-shirt inside and a pair of leggings with flats to finish the look.
Upscale it: Tuck in your boyfriend shirt and wear a blazer for an upscale stylish look. You could wear this with pants or skirt and a pair of pumps.
Wearing the Boyfriend Jeans
For women: They do not have to be your boyfriend’s jeans. There are many different ranges of boyfriend jeans made for women.
Loosen it: Wear your boyfriend jeans loose and low on the hip.
Feminise it: Balance the top by wearing something feminine and tight like a vest with a chic vest.
Layer it: Layer bold pieces of necklaces and bangles and wear girly flip-flops, ballet shoes or chunky gladiators, to give the masculine jeans a more feminine look.
