Boyfriend Jeans and . . . (How to Style Your Boyfriend Jeans)

The first time I saw a pair of boyfriend jeans I was in a Target in California. This was three years ago, and the girl wearing them looked so terribly cute that I snuck a stealth cell phone shot for analyzing deeply later. Because for a girl with shorter legs and wider hips, I knew I really needed to consider all the angles involved if I was going to jump on this trend. You know what I mean?

Thanks to a pair of maternity jeans that weren’t boyfriend jeans then but now totally are, I’m feel like I’m ready to start styling my own boyfriend jean looks. It’s not rocket science… I mean, certainly of all the trends going right now boyfriend jeans are probably the most relaxed and easy to pull off, but in honor of being thorough, I present unto you, Boyfriend Jeans Dot Dot Dot… Hope you enjoy!
