I remember the first time I wanted to buy me a pair of boyfriend jeans. It was back in ’05 when Rhianna donned a pair in Pon de replay. I shouldn’t be admitting that. I also shouldn’t say that I also wanted the sparkly sequins crop top that she wore but at least I didn’t buy one in the end.

Boyfriend jeans have a sort of laid back femininity to them that draws me. I do think though that it is very difficult to get right. I keep on seeing celebrities papped in them and looking just a bit sloppy if you ask me. I think it’s the shoes and the fact they all seem to be wearing a grey t-shirt.

Personally I have a few rules when wearing boyfriend jeans. Make sure you leave a bit of ankle to show. Wear something on top that isn’t too tight nor too baggy, and heels always add something feminine to the baggy-ness.

I just love the graphics on these though. That too gives them a stronger feminine side. The jumper is great too because you can layer underneath to add colour. I’ll do another look this week with the jumper!

    I’ve always wanted to buy boyfriend jeans, but I’m not really a heels-girl and I’m scared that I’ll look completely tomboyish : c But these with prints are amazing!

      Thanks Hannah, I too was concerned about the tomboy thing, but they look great with a pair of sandals too I think! x
