What Are Boyfriend Jeans?

A style of trousers characterised by their relaxed, slouchy fit, boyfriend jeans are a looser fitting style of denim that is popular amongst street style enthusiasts. The jeans, which are typically made from a lighter-weight denim, should fit comfortably on the hips (boyfriend jeans are usually worn mid-low on the waist) and feature a loose cut on the leg.

How To Wear Boyfriend Jeans

1. City Chic

Taking your boyfriend jeans into town? Dress them up with capsule wardrobe staples like a black leather jacket and a white vest, before upping the ante with sunglasses, kitten heels and stylish tote. Perfect for layering up in spring and early autumn – and heading out for brunch or drinks in the city.

2. Lean Into The Slouch

If cosy vibes are what you’re after, you can try leaning into the slouchier aesthetic of your boyfriend jeans by opting for a loose-fitting top or jumper. It’s baggy on baggy, but it can still look dressed up; team up your jeans with a neutral toned t-shirt and knit, throw on a matching belt and you have off-duty quiet luxury.

3. Colour Pop

Stepping away from the monochrome, you can inject your outfit with a little fun courtesy of a colour boost. We love the idea of picking one colour and drenching an outfit in it – but for those who might feel a little intimidated by the idea, breaking the outfit up with a pair of jeans is a great start. Take notes from this creative, who teams up her boyfriend jeans with a pink knit, handbag and trainers.

4. Simple Layers

Another one for the minimalists – boyfriend jeans make an excellently sophisticated (and understated) pairing for a streamlined winter coat. We really like how they look layered underneath a simple shirt and a trench coat; perfect for bundling up on cold days.

5. Double Denim

Double denim never dies – even when it comes to boyfriend jeans. This coordinated look can be built through a combination of jeans, jackets, tops and waistcoats (preferably in similar shades of denim) and has some pretty impressive throwback energy.
