Hey Boyfriend Jeans, I love you.

Friday, May 24, 2013

I have a serious meaningful love affair with anything classically found in a man's closet. Over-sized button downs, waffle tees with the sleeves rolled up, big soft t-shirts, it's all so much more comfortable and alluring than almost any women's top I own. However, I have always had trouble fitting into men's pants which is just annoying.

The boyfriend jean trend entered my life while I was still in college a la something I saw somewhere on the internet and copied immediately. I tried out a few different styles - some too baggy, some too tight, some too harem-y. Nick hated them all which assured me I was onto something good.

As Spring makes its way around to Summer, I am breaking out my boyfriend inspired pantalones which I continue to love year after year. Very few trends that meander on and off my hangers enjoy a similar fate.

So get your man pants on with some of these options I've been eyeing this season:
Zara Boyfriend Jean, $60 / Express Modern Boyfriend Jean, $50 / Old Navy 3.5" Boyfriend Short, $17 / Current/Elliot White Boyfriend Short, $148 / Free People Carpenter Boyfriend Short, $47 / J Brand Black 1214 Moto Eyelet Aidan Jean, $258 / Mossimo Cropped Boyfriend Jean (similar here), $25

Not convinced? If you need some third-party cred, Huffington Post just announced Sienna Miller was seen wearing some boyfriend jeans around NYC a few days ago. Therefore, they are unarguably still cool. Article here.
