In today's Style Series, I'm talking about one of my favorite combos - boyfriend jeans and heels. I have always loved the look and when I spotted it here weeks ago, I thought, 'Ok. I might be able to recreate a similar look and feel comfortable wearing it out and about,' and while in LA a few weeks back, I gave it a shot.
I have two pairs of boyfriends jeans, but I only wear one (why does that happen?!). The other pair has too much stretch in it, and by the end of the day they look like a potato sack on me. These, by Joe's Jeans, have nearly zero stretch, and the more I wear old school pairs like Levi's, the more I realize I prefer certain styles with zero stretch because the fit is just better. A few Levi's and Joe's below, in case you're interested.
Normally, I tend to go with the rule that if the jeans are loose, the shirt should have a tighter fit and vice versa, but with this outfit, I went for a flowy waffle tank in a muted mauve. I'm not sure it was my best pick for this outfit, but I like that it was loose and effortless, and has a raw edge hem which sort of goes with the torn up jeans. A few other muted mauve tanks below
For the shoes, I chose these lace up booties (now on sale in black!) from ShopBop I got a few months ago. They're not a style I normally wear, and I got them precisely for that reason. Like, I had no idea what I would wear them with, but I tried them on, and I was sold. They just feel nice. They have good ankle support. And I felt like they might go just as easily with a dress as they do with heels, although I've yet to try to former. It was just time to break out of my heel comfort zone or something.. haha
The sunglasses are from Sunglass Hut, they're by Armani and I can't find them anywhere online, but I am loving the rose gold mirrored lenses. Below are a bunch at all different price points
I kind of hope the boyfriend style sticks around because there is something I just love about baggy, comfortable pants offset by heels. Are you a fan of boyfriend jeans? What do you normally pair them with? Does your pair have a stretch to them or are they 100% cotton?
