When the boyfriend jean trend first emerged a few years ago, I was very hesitant to give them a try. My usual denim style (and my style in general) leans towards a much more tailored and slim silhouette. When I tried on most pairs, I found that my figure was lost in a distressed wash sea of folds and gapping. Baggy just wasn’t for me.
Recently though, I tried out these 7 For All Mankind ‘Josefina’ boyfriend jeans. The distressing was evident but not obnoxious, the wash is medium, and they fit me with just the right amount of give – the perfect balance between slouchy and slim. I usually roll them up twice to keep that boyfriend look, but the small-ish leg opening maintains a fitted feeling.
To avoid looking stumpy when I’m out on the streets of New York City, I’d pair these jeans with a wedge and either a fitted top, or something I can tuck in. They are definitely ‘weekend jeans,’ and would be be perfect for spur-the-moment brunches and all-day errands with ballet flats and a men’s button down shirt.
