Wear It Five Ways: Boyfriend Jeans

This post is a continuation of Wednesday’s post.

I always try to do something unexpected with the given task but in these jeans I’ve found an indomitable foe. One unusual idea that did come to mind was to turn them into boyfriend shorts but they weren’t loose enough on me to cuff to shorts-length (nor did I think the end result would’ve been presentable…probably just ridiculous).

First up is the Canadian Tuxedo with a printed blouse.

With a graphic tee and a parka:

And with various jackets:

Middle: Ann Taylor Seersucker Blazer | Forever 21 Striped Tank Top | Pearl Necklace with Bow Clasp via eBay | C. Wonder Leather & Chain Belt | Zara Wedge Court Shoe
Right: Theory Gabe B. Tailor Blazer (also here + here) | Forever 21 Top | Forever 21 Anchor Necklace | C. Wonder Leather & Chain Belt  | Pour La Victoire Chantel Scalloped Pumps (also here, here + here)

The last two looks were thrown together at the eleventh hour for good measure. I wanted to see how these jeans would look with low heels and wedge sneakers.

Left: Alice + Olivia Wendy Lace Blouse | Burberry London Mottram Trench | J. Crew Janey Patent Flats
Right: Ann Taylor Embellished Merino Wool Blend Sweater | Vince Camuto Follie Sneaker

My big takeaway? Wear these jeans with taller heels. As the last two outfits have shown, my legs aren’t long enough to pull off slouchy jeans without the help of leg-lengthening high heels.

How do you wear boyfriend jeans?
