As we are officially in the so long awaited SUMMER season now, I would love to point out a few boyfriend jeans styles which I find to be a perfect solution for those of us that don't feel comfortable wearing shorts in the city but suffer with the skinny tight stretch jeans, known to make you sweat like hell (and freeze to death in winter!). For me, these boyfriend jeans are perfect :
- I can upsize and wear them baggy and loose, rolled up at the cuffs, with a skimpy tanktop (check out Alessandra Ambrosio)
- I can wear them true to size, meaning, not skinny and not baggy, but kind of loose (Katie Holmes)
- I can also wear them as almost skinny, the term is slouchy, and wear them paired with anything that I would wear if they were skinny jeans (Rihanna)
When it comes to my own personal jeans, I am really the most difficult customer, as you can all imagine. My jeans have to be exactly the way I want them to be. Period. I don't take a "more or less" and I don't ever compromise. I live, sleep and love in denim, so I demand the BEST.
Here are the options that I definitely absolutely declare as the perfect boyfriend jeans.
gives us the Aiden
. This is a slim cut boyfriend jean in a light wash, with some destruction on the leg only. They are 100% cotton and therefore super ideal for hot summer weather.
, yessir, True Religion
is giving us a boyfriend style
as well. It is a heavier denim, also 100% cotton, but being that it is to be worn loose and not skin tight, it does not make you sweat. These come in a very typical true religion darker destroyed wash with their famous tell-tale flap pockets, and they also come in a totally bleached out faded light blue which is perfect for summer, sand and beach cafe's where you can enjoy your happy hour margarita.
And there is the Josefina
from 7 For All Mankind
- famous already for a couple of seasons. I love that they are edgy even though they do have stretch, and are of a lighter weight denim. Their wash is dark blue with whiskers and strategical small destruction They come with a button fly which I adore, I think that real boyfriend jeans should have button flies indeed! They are cut a little larger on the leg, more like straight jeans, which makes them the perfect pair of jeans if you want to roll them up even to the middle of your calves.
Cult Of Individuality Alter Ego
And last, but in NO WAY, the least, are the Alter Ego boyfriend jeans made by Cult of Individuality. Very heavy Japanese denim, with the slightest bit of stretch. They come in a darker wash that has been treated, sand washed and destroyed, and patched up - just the way I love it when I want to project my rebel mood.
So kids, let me know it this has helped to find your very own boyfriends. :-)
And YES, leave your comments and let us know if you have any suggestions or if there is a special pair of boyfriends you would like us to know about. :-)
